Chicken Shawarma Salad

Amy No Comments

One of my all-time favorite meals is a Mediter­ranean spread–a table full of hum­mus, baba ghanoush, tzatzi­ki, tab­bouleh, tahi­ni sauce, the works! But even bet­ter than that is all of those lus­cious condi­ments atop a suc­cu­lent shawar­ma. And it goes to the next lev­el when I can enjoy all of that with­out the bread. Since most of us don’t have a giant spit to roast meat in our kitchen, some­times you got­ta impro­vise. You may have tried my BBQ chick­en shawar­ma. But here’s one you can make indoors year-round, Read more […]

Heartwarming & Healing Chicken Soup

Amy No Comments

Do you ever crave a giant bowl of chick­en soup when you’re not feel­ing well?! Yeah, me too! I think it’s safe to say every­one has had that moment where it seems like noth­ing but a good hearty bowl of home­made chick­en soup will cure you. It’s amaz­ing how intu­itive our bod­ies are.

The rea­son we crave chick­en soup when Read more […]

Pumpkin Red Lentil Dal

Amy No Comments

Some­times you get a seri­ous crav­ing for some curry–or is that just me? We had a bag of toma­toes from the farmer’s mar­ket that weren’t going to last much longer.

And all I could think about at the moment was cur­ry, so of course that meant my Aunt’s to-die-for Toma­to Fen­nel Chut­ney recipe. I also had been mean­ing to make her Pump­kin Dal, and the two just hap­pen to go hand in hand like peanut but­ter and jel­ly! Believe me! Read more […]
