Posted on 7th of August, 2012 by Lévana

blondies

Photo via www.tasteofhome.com A couple weeks ago, I was baking chocolate chip cookies with kids in summer camp, and our baking conditions were rudimentary, to say the least. We needed to bake 48 cookies in a convection oven large enough to bake, say, 2 pans of 12 cookies. So, simple...

Another sampling dinner at Pardes Restaurant: I succumbed to the idea yet again, tightening my belt all of that day in prevision for what treats were in store for us. The only thing better than reading and drooling about this menu is actually eating it. I went last week with...

Moroccan Squash chick pea soup

We Moroccans love squash in every way shape of form, and goodness knows it comes in countless shapes and sizes. They turn up in many Moroccan dishes (Couscous on top of the list). Their spicy sweetness is equally at home  in savory dishes (I love Pumpkin Corn Pudding) and in...
