This Lebanese soup recipe is originally from Bethany Kehdy’s book Pomegranate and Pine Nuts, but I’ve come across it via a fun, garlic-laden story on fork spoon knife. Like Asha, prior to seeing this recipe I had not heard of Kishk, which is (according to Wikipedia):
a powdery cereal of burghul (cracked wheat) fermented with milk and laban (yogurt)
It sounds intriguing, there’s so much to discover from this part of the world!
While we’re talking garlic-laden dishes, how about a wholesome bowl of soba and zucchini noodles? Erin from Naturally Ella does warn you might want to tone the garlic down, but I say live dangerously ;).
Time to get your sweet-tooth warmed up with a classic: chocolate brownies thanks to Joanne at Inspired Taste. This is a simple, one-bowl recipe that should convert anyone who hasn’t been confident enough to bake from scratch before. Use it to hook a friend into baking!
Did you hook your friends into baking yet? Once you have, then here’s a way to take it up a level. Transform regular cupcakes into something with a real wow-factor by adding this toasted marshmallow icing. Maureen, the Orgasmic Chef, had a few hiccups with this batch but assures us the recipe is not difficult!
Kelsey from Happyolks accompanies this amazing-looking ice cream with beautiful, heartfelt writing. After being drawn into the story you might need a bowl of ice cream! I must confess that I’m really in it to convince Jane that figs, bitter caramel and ice cream are a perfect match.
