Koshari is a common everyday meal in Egyptian that I assume got it's inspiration from leftovers. Why else would one mix pasta, rice, lentils, and chickpeas all in one dish?

After eating copious amounts of meat over Memorial Day Weekend my family and I are giving our systems a break. This Harissa Chickpea dish is flavorful enough that you won't miss having meat in your meal.

Nothing says Spring quite like ham and peas. This is a simple recipe in which you can use up leftover ham.  Fresh peas are beginning to be available. If you can find them and use them that day...do!

Here we are in New Zealand for Food of the World. I imaged the food to be, well, more island like. Native cuisine is made more with local vegetables and fish, both of which are not available to me in New York.
