    Slow-cooked Beef Short Ribs

    These slow-cooked beef short ribs are one of those meals that you just season, toss in the oven, and bake to perfection. It bakes for 3 hours giving you enough time to nap, do errands/chores, and catch up on other things. It is delicious with a side of creamy mashed potatoes and/or cheesy scalloped potatoes. My husband who is a meat lover enjoyed these so much that I made these 3 times in a week’s time! Yes, insane right? It is tangy, slightly sweet and super tender. Many recipes call for ketchup and BBQ sauce for slow-cooked beef short ribs. I used a common pantry staple of mine; pomegranate molasses.…

    Traditional Graybeh (Middle Eastern Shortbread Cookie)

    Let’s start off by saying that I absolutely love this cookie! Not just because its SO easy, but because it is SO delicious too. Who knew a 4 ingredient cookie can taste this good in no time? Ghraybeh is crisp on the outside and just melts in your mouth once you bite into it. The nuts on top give that little extra decoration and crunch. You can even make some with sprinkles for your kiddos. You can really have fun with these butter cookies. I even have a variation of Ghraybeh where I made them into thumbprint cookies; you need to check that out. It was my modern take on…

    Shish Barak

    These Middle Eastern homemade meat-stuffed dumplings are to die for! They are the ultimate comfort food and every minute that goes into making these are well worth it. Shish Barak can be considered the ravioli of Arabic cuisine; they look just like them except the stuffing must be minced meat and the sauce it is cooked in is yogurt-based to be considered traditional. Often, ground beef or lamb or even a mixture is used to make this hearty meal. Making the filling and the dough is the easiest part. It is the tedious repetition of making the dumplings by hand. First, you have to lay the dough flat and then…
