I'm not sure where the heck I got these. I'm thinking they may be Martha Stewart with the triangular cut bar instruction but not totally sure. Wherever they are from, they are tasty. Think fruit oat bar more than fig newton and you won't be disappointed! Not overly sweet and perfect with a cup of coffee.

In Syria, noodles and lentils are spiced in a most unusual way for a Western palate that expects all pasta dishes to contain oregano or basil rather than allspice and coriander. We think you'll find that this Middle East combination is rather pleasing and unusual.
A delicious Cooking Light Recipe from Sept 2003
To keep the whole-milk yogurt from curdling, allow the lentils to cool slightly before stirring. Make the lentils a day ahead and refrigerate, then warm them over low heat. Serve as a side dish or as an appetizer with pita wedges.
I got inspiration from an old Maida Heatter cookie recipe. I love this chewy little cookie and the combo of molasses and spice with lime and coconut is surpising and addictively delicious. The directions may sound complicated but they are really not..the first roll may look a bit clumsy (mine did!), but by the last quarter you'll be a pro.
This is adapted from an Emeril recipe to fit what my memory is from my mom's kitchen. This dish is extremely popular in Oporto which is where my mother's family is from and served traditionally on Good Friday.
This flavorful Ethiopian-inspired chicken stew uses Berbere, an Ethiopian spice blend. Store extra spice mix covered in a cool, dark place for up to two weeks. Use leftovers on salmon, flank steak, or chicken for fiery flavor. Serve with basmati rice. Cooking Light recipe.
After making a Bechamel sauce based lasagna, I would never go back to the ricotta version again. Cook's Illustrated and Battali have similar recipes for a meat version, but I really love the flavor of the mushrooms in this one.
I made this for my birthday last year and it is incredible. This appeared in last year's Bon Appetit. Now I have two cakes to pick from for my birthday..this and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Cake. Can you tell I'm head over heels for this winning combination?
