Spicy Homemade Pickles [RECIPE]

Why purchase ready-made pickles at the grocer when they are so easy to make yourself? These are crisp, delicious and packed with flavor. If you’re craving a tart dill pickle, pass on this recipe, as these come out more closely resembling a sweeter (but spicier) bread and butter pickle. However, I promise if you give these babies a chance, you might begin to wonder if you’re pregnant, because you may just develop a pickle addiction. Enjoy! Read more of this post

Israeli Salad

Israeli Salad

Traditional Israeli Salad is a family staple in the Middle East. Prepared with fresh vegetables and herbs, it is a light and refreshing meal on a hot summer day.

Friends from countries around the globe have taught us that everybody eats salad, but every region has its own special variety based on what produce is grown there. Our friend Amit grew up in Israel and this is a traditional recipe that she remembers her mother making frequently for her family. Great on its own, it is especially delish when paired with Hummus!
