Baked Pistachio Herb Falafel with Two Sauces

Baby Turnip Fairytale- Turnip and Chicken Tagine with Green Olives and Preserved Lemon

I pride myself on loving strong flavours.  I like gamey meat, fishy fish, aged cheese, spice, all things fermented and pickled, bitterness and sourness in my sweetness.  So, I really want to love turnips.  But I just don’t.  I love

Roasted Potatoes and Fennel with Za’atar

Every year around my birthday I go out for  dinner at one of my favourite restaurants, The Kebab Cafe, in Astoria Queens. I don’t really eat out much, because it interferes with my desires to spend all of my time
