Hello my favorite ladies,
I am very excited to share this dish with you as it is the traditional Palestinian dish that is usually served when we have big family gatherings – and you have seen my family, you know they are BIG gatherings!
It is and always has been one of my all time favorites, not only because it is delicious, but also because it reminds me of so many good memories and fills my heart with joy.
If you remember Jan, you and Nigel actually tasted it when you were in Amman, at Zena’s place.
This time, Beth and the Man were invited to try it out!

How you loving the long, light evenings? Pretty sweet right!! I recently finished a 12 day Wild Rose Cleanse– a dietary reset and I feel great! Even though I’m done with the cleanse, I’m sticking with the healthy meals and came up with this recipe I wanted to share: spicy paprika and zaatar chicken served with a refreshing spinach, avocado salad dressed with olive oil and lemon juice counter the heat of the chicken. It was pretty tasty 🙂 Enjoy!
Hi everyone ,
During our last week on Milos, I spent a terrific day with our friend Vasilis in the kitchen of his restaurant, Alevromilos. It was so interesting to see how he manages to make three or more dishes at a time. He cooks everything fresh to order,so he is super organised. One of the few things he preps ahead is his basic tomato sauce and that was the foundation for a lot of what we made that day.
On the menu was: aubergine saganaki, aubergine risotto and chicken meatballs-all easy and all delicious in large part because of the tomato sauce. We also made red pepper dip, feta in filo and orange filo cake but those are for another day.

How’s it going?! So today- something super easy and tasty…wings! I’m back on a paleo diet to help my digestive system. These wings are perfect as part of an aperitif, bring to a football game day at a friend’s, light dinner. Here we go!
Today the four of us are happy to share a special post! The nice people at www.aloha.com asked us if we’d be interested in sharing our health and food tips for Spring and it got us thinking… what are we doing for our bodies and minds? With New Years’ resolutions but a faint memory, we decided to make new ones!
In this post each of us shares our Spring resolution accompanied by a recipe that will help to achieve our objective.
We hope that you’ll enjoy this post and that it will encourage you to make a Spring resolution as well. What will you do for yourself in the coming months? Please share!
I hope you are all well.
Thomas and I are back on track, after indulging with Norah’s delicious birthday cakes, it was high time we got back on our diets. Still 4 kgs to lose, but I am happy as I can now wear most of my pre-pregnancy clothes! What an achievement, I am very proud!! 🙂
I hope everybody is doing well!
The whole family here is alright, we have officially begun dieting with Thomas and it has been quite a success! Not only are we losing weight, but we are also making an effort in finding delicious yet light recipes to make the ride as easy as possible! And it is actually working 🙂
The recipe I have chosen to post today is not one of the lightest, however, thanks to a great app that I am currently using, I was able to calculate the amount of calories per serving: 433 calories.
