Eat Global…Greek Style

I am a fan of travel based food shows. With my newborn when I was homebound, I watched two to three such shows in a row. Felt like a globetrotter with no guilt of a couch potato. I am so glad for such shows which besides being informative teaches you how food connects people. In…

The Falafel Twist-er!!

A vegan delight offered from this part of the world that I absolutely love……. Falafel!!! This is the best way to describe falafels. And just like hummus, I like to add a twist to falafels. They can be made just for snacking, as starters, or be a part of salad bowls. Stuff them in sandwiches…
