Fish tacos!  Oh so very good.  If you've never had a fish taco, you're REALLY missing out.  My favorites so far are cod fish tacos and shrimp fish tacos.  Today, I present to you: coconut breaded cod fish tacos.

 
 
These cute little pies are simple to make and delicious to devour.  Your mouth will start watering just by looking at them!

appetizers should be quick and easy to make.  these tortilla rolls are one of my favorite no-effort-recipes for a fantastic snack!  and once you get the basics down, you can try adding different ingredients to the mix!  they are highly addictive.

Lemon Cookies

This recipe may be the best cookie recipe I've ever used!  As with all cookies, they taste the best right out of the oven.  But I was surprised how moist and fluffy they still tasted a week later.  Lemon cookies are the perfect springtime cookie.

 
 
Hummus.  Yes, homemade hummus.  Need I say more?  You can garnish hummus with many things.  In this recipe I use roasted red pepper and a bit of minced parsley. 

 

Mjadara

Mjadara: a  middle eastern dish that has rice, lentils, and carmelized onions.  As with most arabic dishes, a suggested serving option is to pair it with a spoonful or two of plain yogurt.  Also, tabbouli goes great as a side dish!
