Eggplant Kuku

Among the many gifts my husband gave me when we were first married was a stack of 20 cookbooks. All were from different cuisines: Afghani, Persian, Moroccan, Turkish, Caribbean, Japanese, Chinese, South American, Cajun, Somali… well, you get the picture. I’m still trying to figure out what the take-away message is. He claims I’m the […]

Terrific Turkey Curry

Turkey Curry is the dish that got me interested in the wonderful world of curries. The flavor, ease, and the fact that it is adjustable for Type 2 diabetics, made this dish a win for me! I adapted this from a curry recipe I found in Bon Appetit magazine, that had about 500 ingredients. I […]

Olivieh – Persian Chicken, Egg, and Potato Salad

Now that summer is here, “cooking supper” has become “making supper.” It’s hot outside and I don’t want to make my house any warmer by heating up the kitchen. My menus on hot days are very likely to include some version of a cold protein-based salad, with some crunchy veggies added for texture and flavor. […]

Mustard and Garlic Roasted Turkey Breast

Indian Shrimp in Butter Sauce Salad

Indian Shrimp in Butter Sauce Salad combines two flavor profiles. It takes the warmth of shrimp cooked in butter and tossed with the spice mixture Garam Masala, and partners it with the cool creaminess of a coleslaw-style salad. It’s a great marriage of flavors that comes together very quickly. This recipe also is scaled for […]
