I have been meaning to work on my first Risotto for about a year now; it was one of 2 food related new years resolutions, the second being baking bread… it will come, I am going to do it before the end of 2012 for sure. I have seen, heard and read about a lot of Risotto recipes; creamy delicious, broth drenched granules of rice. I had picked up my Arborio rice about 2-3 months ago… and snip snip, the packet was finally opened. Continue reading
It’s terrible, I have been so busy with so many things , I believe I am getting ahead of myself and trying to fit a 28 hour day into a 24 hour day. If it isn’t midnight work hours or socializing or cooking its taking care of Sasha or endless chores or running errands to sort out the bills; at any given time there is something or the other. I truly admire the women with babies in their arms, managing a whole household, working during the day and still making sure the family sits together at the dinner table with their favorite dishes in front of them. How do you do it? Continue reading
Who is Mid EATS? This little blog is a joint venture run by 2 lovely young ladies, Ms. Heba Saleh and Ms. Brenda Abdelall. These lovely ladies have just celebrated their 200th like (and will be a lot more by the time this post is out) but show them some love. Their cuisine is authentic and brings out the essence of traditional middle-easter flavors. While I’m away they decided to feed my blog with this slurp-a-licious guest post of a carrot-ginger soup.
So here is their lovely post of a Carrot Ginger Soup (Shourbat Gazar bil Zangabeel)
My posts are piling up in my head and in about a couple days I wont be able to breathe… But its coming… slowly but surely…Blogging is a full time job and it ain’t no joke. I feel like I need a machine or someone who can record my thoughts, click pictures with just a glance of the dish and spew out blog posts with a 2sec upload time. Sigh! … I’m asking too much aren’t I? Oh well enough of whining and feast your eyes on another recipe created for the mystery box challenge set up by Kari.
Cooking for me is rarely boring; there are times I invite people only so that I may get myself into a spastic cooking monster mode. But someone in our blogging community decided to help spice it up even more.. with a CHALLENGE!
Here’s another 30 minute quickie you can sprout up in no time. Do check out my guest post on my friend Aseya’s Blog
It was a ladies saturday lunch, where me and my girlfriends gather to do some bead work. The menu had already been decided a night before, and grilled fish was on it! Saturdays are great, its a day off but not really. Saturdays to me are Seafood-Saturdays and a warranted trip to the fish market. Fresh fish is absolutely amazing, thinking of my teeth sinking into that soft white fluffy flesh just makes me go mmmm and honestly as long as the fish is fresh it needs very little to go with it; maybe a drizzle of lemon or… a salsa. I decided that the best accompaniment was… *drum roll*.. Mango Avocado Salsa…Oh my goodness… ok this is absolutely yummy and super easy.
Salsa is so versatile, if you want you can use this as a dip or a topping for an Amuse-Bouche.. or.. grilled fish
Now set your timmer to 15 minutes cause that’s all you’ll need… and these ingredients:
- 2 Soft tender Avocados
- 1 Juicy sweet ripe Mango
- 1 tomato
- Juice and Zest of 1 lime
- bunch of corriandrer
- salt (to taste)
- ½ tsp pepper
- ½ tsp cumin powder
