I know peaches must be in season because I’ve been finding them lately reasonably priced both in my local grocery store as well as my favorite fruit stand. I first made this dressing weeks ago before we left for vacation and it turned out so tasty that I knew I wanted to blog [...]
When we were inThailand, my husband and I gorged on Tom Yum soup. We ate it al almost every Thai restaurant we went to. I have to say, at first it didn’t sound very appetizing to me. Hot and sour….and shrimp? But two bites in, I was hooked! Most times when we ordered it, [...]
wa `alaykumu s-salāmu. For delivery please?
Ah yes, Madam.
Chicken Tikka. Lamb chops, eight pieces. One hummus. One yogurt salad.
Is that it for tonight?

But in keeping with the Middle Eastern theme today, I’m finally getting around [...]
My kids are all or nothing. Zero to one hundred. Black or white. A few weeks ago, C was into strawberries. He couldn’t get enough. He was eating a carton a day. Then, one morning I put a few on his plate for breakfast. What does he say?
“Ma, no [...]
Every once in a while life feels so ironic. Just the other day I was telling a friend that we’ve been lucky because haven’t had to go to a hospital since we’ve been here. Well, this weekend our luck ran out.
We were at a birthday party when my daughter jumped off of [...]
Green Monster Smoothies have been floating around the blog world for some time. I’ve seen them, book marked them, then thought, “Sounds great, but they day my kids would drink something green is the day pigs fly.”
Well, one day last week there must have been an airborne pig somewhere [...]
