Good Frickin' Paprika Chicken
While this is a pretty straightforward grilled chicken recipe, the vinaigrette at the end was a last minute touch that worked out nicely. I really like oil and vinegar-based sauces on grilled meats. They work beautifully with the smoky, caramelized exterior.
Coriander and Cumin Rubbed Pork Chops
Chops rubbed with a simple but flavorful spice and garlic mixture. For an even more potent result, toast and grind the spices yourself.
What Is Urfa Biber?
This distinctive Turkish pepper adds flavor, heat, and texture to an array of dishes.
Semolina Turmeric Cake (Sfoof)
A Lebanese dessert that is not overly sweet. It is pleasing to the American palate due to its lack of rose water and orange blossom essence, found in most Middle Eastern desserts. Sahteyn! (Bon appetit!)
Cumin and Coriander Chickpea Salad
This is a wonderful garbanzo bean salad with cumin and coriander (cilantro) that my grandmother used to make!
This is a popular Tunisian condiment. It's a homemade pepper paste that is sure to add an extra kick to just about anything and it is widely used in Tunisian cuisine. I add it to anything I want to spice up; in my home we use this just about everyday.
Cajun Spice Mix
This Cajun spice mix can easily be made at home with common spices from your pantry.
Easy Garam Masala
This is a quick Garam Masala (Indian spice) mix. Garam Masala is better when made with whole spices that have been roasted and ground, but this is a quick and easy substitute that's pretty good.
Stacey's Hamburger Seasoning
This easy, 5-minute burger seasoning adds gourmet flavor to hamburgers.
Danish Cinnamon Snails
Americans would call these cinnamon rolls--but this version is the original Danish version and it's absolutely wonderful. They are traditionally served with coffee or tea at Christmas time, and they are to die for!
