Lectin-Free Chocolate Strawberry Birthday Cake

It has been a tradition in our household to create a new birthday cake on our birthdays. Since my husband loves chocolate and it was his birthday in April, I decided on a chocolate cake this time. And oh my, it didn’t disappoint. Although the looks might suggest something different, it’s actually a pretty basic and simple recipe to put together, so that’s another plus. And it’s grain-free, sugar free and lectin-free cake.

How to Make Real Parmigiano Reggiano Crisps

parmigiano reggiano crisps

You know you are a food nerd when you are extremely excited about the cracking of a Parmigiano Reggiano wheel and sampling of the heart of the “king of cheeses”. It happened this past weekend at Whole Foods, and I’m in cheese heaven. Those samples were the best piece of cheese I’ve ever had. Since I bought a big piece of Parmigiano that day, I wanted to make something that is hard to find in stores, Parmigiano Reggiano crisps.

Pao de Beijo or Luana’s Brazilian Sun Kissed Bread

You remember the easy Brazilian cheese bread I shared a few months ago? It was so easy to make and so delicious, I feel like you never need any other bread recipe.

Prosciutto Wrapped Artichoke Hearts

How to Make my Favorite Nut Butter, Pecan Butter

I’ve been sharing my love for pecans and pecan butter for quite some time, but I took it for granted and never shared the recipe in a dedicated post on this website. This weekend I went to Dallas Farmers Market, and bought fresh, Texas pecans from a farmer, and he had no idea pecan butter is a thing! I just can’t believe that people don’t know about pecan butter, when is in fact the most delicious nut butter out there.

Italian Style Mustard Greens and Sweet Potato Soup

Mustard greens are not something you easily find in stores, especially if you shop at small stores like I do, but you most probably find a vendor selling mustard greens at the farmers market. We went to Dallas farmers market on Saturday and found a super nice lady from whom I bought the mustard greens, some small and super delicious carrots and a big bunch of daikon radishes with the greens on.

One Pan Beef Kebab Platter with Za’atar Oil

My love and obsession with both Greek and Middle Eastern flavors and cuisines show in this meal. Having lived for eight years in the Middle East (Dubai), both my husband and I want to experience those amazing flavors in our Dallas home regularly, and every now and then we put together a meal like this one. This one pan beef kebabs platter will probably become one of our favorite home cooked meals.
