Client testimonial

October is the season of giving thanks for everything from the moment we open our eyes we are thankful to God for letting us see the sunlight and the fall foliage displaying its colors: dark maroon, mustard yellow, bright orange, brown green, ever green and soft almond color on the edges of a big maple leaf.

The scent of cinnamon, cloves, star anise, nutmeg and all spice welcome the season of giving thanks. Our palate is reminded once again that the great Thanksgiving dinner is near. Pumpkin, squashes of all kinds, broccoli and apples become our staple. As our laborious mothers hand’s become busy and arduous they transform into chemist tasting, testing and modifying recipes we begin to think is there another way to cook this turkey? 

 I recently tasted a home made apple cake that Mayari baked from left over apples from apple picking. My, my, I was happy! Every bite was soft moist and fragrant. Small pieces of juicy and crispy Macintosh apples delighted my olfactory sent. Honestly I thought: “This is going to taste like a fruit cake,” but it didn’t.  In fact I will add this recipe to my family’s thanksgiving dinner.

Kibbeh

Hello Readers and Happy Monday,

Today I would like to talk about a traditional middle eastern “croquette” called Kibbeh. It is a hearty dish packed with flavor, and pretty healthy not too mention very satisfying. This was made for a client who wanted to try something out of their comfort zone, nutrient dense and healthy!

Kibbeh is made with bulgur a common wheat variant used in countries like Pakistan, Armenia, India, Cyprus and more along the middle east and Mediterranean basin. The bulgur is soaked in water than combined with onions and warm spices such as cinnamon, cumin, clove, nutmeg and salt and pepper; finally choice of ground meat that is blended into a paste in a food processor. All the ingredients are mixed together formed into mini footballs and baked for 20 mins. Served with cherry tomato, arugula and tzatziki sauce.

If you know anyone who wants their meal prep to include international dishes that may be a little different I would Love to chat with them!

Thanks for reading and until next time, Cheers!

Chicken Piccata

Recently I have had many orders of the classic chicken piccata. This dish is lemony and bright, perfect for bringing to a party or for dinner. It is pretty fast and can be done in about an hour. I decided to share the recipe with you!


Here is a finished chicken piccata for a recent meal prep customer.
