Dukkah

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
This Middle Eastern cooking is a whole new adventure for me!!! I just got done making this recipe and I have to say I've never tasted anything remotely like this. I think it's delish; I love the heat of the cumin and coriander, along with the texture of the sesame seeds and hazelnuts. I'm looking forward to many of the serving suggestions I've read here for Dukkah. However, the only caveat is I will cut the salt down to AT LEAST HALF!!! Every bite is unique, but a whole tsp of salt, IMO, is terribly overpowering and takes away from the delighful, complex medley of flavors. Enjoy!!!

Middle Eastern Kibbeh

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
I made this a couple of weeks ago and wasn't so sure sure about it at the time. I sauteed a couple of small kibbehs in a pan. Afterwards, I baked the rest of the mixture, and put it in the freezer. Today, I decided to try a few pieces and I LOVED IT!!! In the final analysis, I think sauteeing it in the olive oil just didn't work for me. Maybe a little greasy tasting??? Anyway, two thumbs up for baking it!!!

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
Incredibly delicious recipe!!!! Oh my goodness, the aroma will bring you to your knees, so be prepared for torture!!! I made seemingly minor changes, but significant in terms of final outcome. They are as follows: 4 slices of THICK SLICE bacon. I'm always a fan of thick slice anyway, but when you crisp it there's still a nice piece of meaty bacon left. As far as cooking the veggies in the bacon grease, I ladled out all but a 1-2 tbsp, which was more than adequate and cuts down on fat considerably. I only had 1 can of low sodium chix broth in the pantry, so I used that and completed the liquid requirement with simply water and 1 chicken bouillon cube. Still plently salty (remember there is bacon in here!!!) and this gives you the option to salt to taste when served. 1 clove of garlic instead of two. Just a personal preference. There are a lot of delightful flavors in this soup. Didn't want any one thing to take over!!! Served it with a rustic, whole grain bread and olive oil for dipping. Truly Heaven on Earth!!! The rosemary is amazing in it. DON'T USED DRIED OR OMIT!!! It's sooooooo worth spending a couple dolllars on. Bon apetit!!!

Anatolian Bulgur Pilav

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Okay, I made it as directed and it's not bad!!! But I suspected the proportions mights have been off. My suggestion would be to increase the lentils 1/2 cup and the chickpeas 1/2 cup and you should be on point. The bulgur just seems to be rather top-heavy. In any case, healthy & filling!!! Love me some Middle-Eastern Cuisine ;-)
