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!

French Bread


i present to you my very first loaf of french bread!  isn't it beautiful?  i have been in denial my whole life about how easy it is to make tasty, fresh bread from scratch.  now i'm addicted.  i wonder what i should try making next?

Pita Bread


only 4 basic ingredients, 8 minutes of kneading, 40 minutes of rising, and 12 minutes of baking: and viola! you have yourself fresh hot homemade pita bread!  trust me, it is well worth the effort!

tortilla rolls


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.

in my experimentation with a baked oatmeal dish, i've come up with a delicious dessert baked oatmeal breakfast!  its sweet and savory and goes great with a steaming cup of coffee (or a dollop of ice cream!).

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: 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!



Tabbouli: a fresh middle eastern salad consisting of couscous, parsley, cucumbers, and tomatoes.  This side dish compliments almost any main dish and tastes great when served with a whopping spoonful of plain yogurt.
