Vegetarian Chi Kofte

Vegetarian Chi Kofte

Growing up, I remember when the cousins got together for a casual lunch, our moms and grandmas would frequently prepare a simple raw lamb and bulgur dish we pronounced as "Gheyma" but which actually might be spelled "Kheyma" and is probably more commonly known as "Chi Kofte."  Eventually, as time went on, we began to question the wisdom of eating raw meat, and for better or worse, we eventually stopped the tradition of eating it altogether. Great memories of eating this dish have remained with me over the years, but I jokingly lamented that this dish would never find its way on my blog, since I felt I...

Middle Eastern Lamb Stew

Middle Eastern Lamb Stew

This is a great recipe to try if you are wanting to make your foray into the world of eating lamb. Take it from me, if some of my pickiest eaters loved it, I am confident that your family and guests will too. I carefully selected seasonings and herbs that would compliment the unique flavor of lamb and not overpower it. Although not one ingredient will stand out, you will taste a hint of butter, mint, coriander, cinnamon, allspice, parsley and toasted pine nuts. It's neither too sweet nor too spicy...just a perfect blend of "warm and inviting."Let's break it down even more and...

Lula Kebabs

Lula Kebabs

I wanted to take a moment to share a recipe that was part of our Easter meal at my parent's house. With my kids' Spring Break taking place the day after Easter, I didn't have a chance to share all of our special Easter recipes.  These are called Lula Kebabs and are a very tasty alternative to regular beef or lamb steak kebabs.  You can serve them as the main dish or alongside your regular shish kebabs, as my parents did.   What Ingredients Do I Need to Make Lula Kebabs? 1 lb ground lamb 1 lb ground beef 1/2 cup chopped parsley...
