Middle Eastern Sweet Potato Lentil Stew

Middle Eastern Sweet Potato Lentil Stew

I absolutely love international cooking and always find it amazing how a couple spices can make a dish take on a specific nationality. Baharat is a middle eastern spice blend that is in no way a fixed composition of spices, but rather a regional and […]

Sweet And Spicy Indian Curry

Sweet And Spicy Indian Curry

Sometimes I just love to cook out of pure joy, without any paper and pen next to my pot and, as usual, without knowing what exactly the result would be. That in mind, I really loved to hear my husband’s statement after only a few […]
