Choereg (Armenian Easter Bread)
Ok...so my mother would just kill me if she knew I made our family recipe for Choereg public. But my policy is 'why keep a good thing to myself'. Choereg is a traditional, slightly sweet bread, especially made for Easter. It is delicious for breakfast with a nice cup of coffee. It takes some level of skill, but anyone used to handling yeast should not have a problem. You can find Mahleb at Middle Eastern grocery stores, especially around Easter. It will be with the spices. Please do not omit it, as this is what gives it its distinctive flavour and aroma.
Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy
This simple, hearty dish will remind you of Sunday dinners at grandma's house. This is my husband's all-time favorite meal. The recipe makes plenty of gravy, so serve with mashed potatoes or buttered noodles.
Grandpa's Tomato Gravy
Handed down from my Grandpa who was born and reared in south Georgia. It is really a sauce (because there is no flour in it) but you can eat it for breakfast over biscuits, eat it at room temperature like a soup at lunch or the way we ate it at his house over rice with hoe cakes for dinner. It is simple to make but tastes so good. It keeps in the refrigerator for several days and I think it tastes better the next day.

Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy - US Navy Style
I deployed with the U.S. Navy on the USS Enterprise, and it was there I had the best mac and cheese of my life. I've spent a number of years trying new recipes to produce the mild, thick and creamy version we were served. After numerous attempts and fails I came up with this. It's so simple and just like we got weekly while we were haze grey and underway.
Traditional Armenian Gomgush
Gomgush is a traditional brothy stew of Armenia. Fresh ingredients are very important and it is cooked it in an unwashed tonir (similar to a tandoor) that is kept in family. After many gomgush are made it will keep getting better and better!
