Tender turkey meatballs in a flavor loaded sauce with turmeric, garlic, cumin and coriander. This must be one of the spiciest dishes I have ever cooked myself.

And not to forget the garlic, there is lots of…

Turmeric Tea

Incredible golden tea made with fresh turmeric, ginger, black pepper, honey and lemon so soothing for my sore throat. Although I am in the middle of this Turmeric Series, I have to admit I had no intention whatsoever of posting a recipe for making turmeric tea. I have never had any before and after posting about the Golden Milk and the Turmeric Paste I thought that would be enough as…

Syrian Stuffed Grape Leaves

Deliciously sticky, tender Syrian vine leaves stuffed with a lemony and garlicky rice filling and cooked over a bed of chicken legs.

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed red pointed peppers with ground beef, rice and tomato sauce.   I would say, this is pretty much the standard Eastern and Southern European way of stuffing peppers.

It is definitely one of my…
