    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…

    Homemade Crunch Wrap Supreme

    Let me start off by saying that this homemade crunch wrap supreme is SO good and SO easy that I cannot wait until you try it and tell me for yourself! It is also super flexible with the ingredients; you technically need tortillas, beef, and cheese. The rest are add on’s to your preference but I definitely recommend adding some pico de gallo or tomatoes at least, queso cheese, and sour cream. This copycat crunch wrap supreme recipe from Taco bell is even better than the real thing. I am telling you; you will be hooked! Crispy on the outside, and oozing with flavors on the inside. If you are…

    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…

    Creamy Chicken & Veggie Soup

    With Ramadan on its way, a bowl of comforting and nutritious soup is in order. I personally don’t make soups often; it isn’t something I usually crave. That is why you don’t see too many on my blog but I knew I had to venture out of just drinking lentil soup all Ramadan. I present to you this creamy chicken & veggie soup that is so simple, hearty, and full of flavor. A recipe for this soup in particular has been requested by many of you several times and I know why! It is GOOD and filling. The vegetables I chose have loads of vitamins which will be extremely beneficial…

    Arayes

    I am so excited to share this delicious and simple Middle Eastern recipe with you. It’s one of those 30 min meals that will make the whole household satisfied! Imagine crispy toasted pita stuffed with well seasoned tender ground meat. It is so delicious and easy. Pop them in the oven or grill them; either way, these arayes will be mouth-watering. Traditionally, ground beef or ground lamb is used as the meat in the stuffing. You can even mix both if you would like. You can use fresh or leftover pita for this too. I personally, love to stuff my arayes to medium thickness but you can over or under…

    Chicken & Veggie Casserole

    I grew up eating this chicken & veggie casserole at potlucks and always looked forward to it. My mom and aunt would make it all the time for an easy dinner that we all loved or for gatherings. It is always a crowd favorite. I mean, why wouldn’t it be? Creamy vegetables, seasoned tender chicken, ‘topped with cheesy potatoes sounds amazing to me any day. I couldn’t even tell you what the best part of the dish is because it is all so good! Don’t have all the ingredients on hand? We literally make this casserole for Ramadan dinners, Thanksgiving dinner, or for a weeknight dinner. You can’t go wrong.…

    Lomo Saltado

    I first had this delicious Peruvian Beef stir fry during my visit to California last year. Our friends took us to a local spot that had some of the best Peruvian we ever ate. One of the dishes we enjoyed was Lomo Saltado. I never had anything like it before and it just intrigued me. I devoured my plate. Lomo Saltado itself is saucy and full of textures and flavors. It goes perfectly with white rice despite already having potato as a component too. I just knew I had to recreate it at home for my husband and me to enjoy. I needed to share this recipe with you. It…

    The Best Classic Lasagna

    Lasagna is one of those comfort foods that always hits the spot. What’s better than pasta, ricotta, seasoned ground beef, marinara sauce, and tons of cheese? Just a few steps with several simple ingredients and you have yourself a wholesome delicious meal that will keep you going back from more. To make it even easier, I used a store-bought marinara sauce and lasagna noodles that require no boiling which saves on more time and easier cleanup. Feel free to use gluten-free lasagna noodles in this recipe if need be as well! It works just as delicious. This was actually tested on brown rice GF noodles. Try my white lasagna if…
