Baked Macaroni with a Ground Turkey, Red Pepper and Cumin Bolognese

Baked Macaroni with a Ground Turkey, Red Pepper and Cumin Bolognese

Ground Turkey can be  a little bland, I know, but when you spruce it up with tons of great flavors (think red peppers, cumin, red wine, fresh thyme) it can turn into something really great. And that’s just what this Bolognese was.

Pumpkin and Coconut Milk Soup

Pumpkin and Coconut Milk Soup

Another pumpkin recipe … I know, I know … you’re probably all pumpkin-ed out. Honestly, I can’t blame you. There is A LOT of pumpkin being served up across the Web these days. But then again, I really did want to get this Pumpkin and Coconut Milk Soup recipe in because I thought it turned out so well.

Rustic Lamb with Greens Beans, New Potatoes, Carrots and Tomato

Rustic Lamb with Greens Beans, New Potatoes, Carrots and Tomato

Early this past summer, I received a package in the mail that came all the way from Hania, Crete. It was sent to me by Maria, of Organically Cooked, who had posted a short quiz on her site and then “raffled” a Cretan cookbook as a reward for participating. The book is Myrsini Lambraki’s Cretan Cuisine for Everyone and I’ve enjoyed leafing through its pages and reading about the hearty, rustic, often simple dishes it has to offer in addition to its insights on the ever healthy Cretan diet.

Dandelion Greens with Roasted Parsnip & Turnip Skordalia

Dandelion Greens with Roasted Parsnip & Turnip Skordalia

Horta, or wild greens, are a staple in the Greek diet. There are tons of varieties all of which are most often boiled and served drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice. But most Greeks also enjoy eating these greens with a dollop of pungent skordalia, that ever-so garlicky Greek dip made with potatoes or bread.

Chicken Curry — Ινδικό Kοτόπουλο

Chicken Curry — Ινδικό Kοτόπουλο

Easter came and went–and I will post some of the recipes I used for that feast over the next couple of weeks–but for now, I’d like to share something different. I’ve loved Indian food for quite a long time. But it had been ages since I’d enjoyed some … until we attended the wedding of a co-worker/friend of my husband’s just about two weeks ago. Being that my husband’s co-worker is of Indian decent, we enjoyed some amazing food there.
