Mejadra-Rice & Lentil Pilaf Topped off with Caramelized Onions

This traditional Lebanese comfort food is a combination of rice, lentils, and fried onions. I can not  stress enough how good this dish is! It’s so flavorful and can also be made with ground lamb or ground beef. Today, I made it meatless but don’t under estimate this dish just because there is no meat. The caramelized…

Fettuccine Alfredo- Guilty Pleasure

Ah pasta! Another weakness of mine as I mentioned before. Fettuccine Alfredo is a classic. When I prepare this dish my kids go crazy! I try not to make this too often just because of the obvious! It’s too rich and definitely something you indulge in from time to time. Most people make  Alfredo by…
