    Vegan Pasta

    Hey my lovely friends! Who doesn’t love a good pasta dish? A little over a week ago, I showed you on my Instagram page how to make this super easy weeknight meal after my workout. I literally put it together in 20 minutes and it was delicious especially it being both vegan and gluten-free.

    Blackened Salmon Tacos

    First time I ever had Fish tacos was at this really cool tiny spot in Huntington Beach, California. It was so good!!!! Sadly, since that day I haven’t had any good fish tacos and really gave up hope when ordering them. For Taco Tuesday, I decided to recreate a fish taco using my favorite hearty fish with all the perfect garnishes. The salsa adds great acidity and an extra layer of flavor. The chimichurri mayo brings in that creaminess and garlic. All these flavors blend really well together. You can use your fish of choice for this taco if you aren’t a fan of salmon. It is recommended we eat seafood…

    Lamb Chops & Potatoes Skillet

    Hi, my lovely friends! The other night, I made hubby and I this delicious lamb chops and potatoes skillet and I would be lying if I said that I have ever cooked lamb before. I have always been hesitant to cook with it and honestly, I never really liked lamb growing up. It’s a taste I have learned to enjoy in my adult years. When I saw these marinated lamb chops grocery shopping this past weekend, I knew that I had to give them a try! My husband loves lamb and I knew it would be a treat since I NEVER make it. Potatoes and meat are the perfect duo…

    Beef Shawarma Plate

    My chicken shawarma recipe is one of the most made and liked on my blog. I decided to do a beef shawarma recipe as well for all you meat lovers. I can’t believe I didn’t make this sooner. Shawarma is extremely popular in the Middle East especially in a wrap, but in this case, I made a shawarma plate to omit the bread making this even healthier than it already is. My husband is doing a low carb diet known as keto; therefore carbs should be to a minimum. This plate is wonderful for those who want a filling healthy dinner for their family. You get your protein, plenty of vegetables…

    Kofta bil tahini – Ground Beef in a Citrus Tahini sauce

    Growing up in a Middle Eastern household, we ate a whole lot of kofta. Kofta baked with tomatoes, kofta as out meatballs for spaghetti, kofta on the grill but one of my favorites is this variation of kofta in a citrus tahini sauce. It is absolutely delicious. We’ve been eating it my whole life but once I got married and moved out; I didn’t have my mom to make it anymore. Her kofta was always the best. She’s in town and guess what I asked her to make for me? This exact dish. I wanted to learn and enjoy another time from her hands. I hope you enjoy this family recipe.…
