Cheesy Couscous with roasted Brussel Sprouts - All that's Jas

Cheesy Couscous with Roasted Brussel Sprouts

This cheesy couscous with roasted Brussel sprouts dish is anything but bland. I admit: I often sweat the small stuff. My poor husband is usually at the receiving end. Like when I bake enough chicken for two meals and he loads his plate with the said chicken but leaves the side dishes almost untouched. I could go on without worrying about it but that’d be too easy. Instead, I nag about the abundance of veggies and no chicken to go…

The only scalloped potatoes recipe you’ll ever need!

Using a mandoline slicer has proven to be painful if you get a bit distracted. My daughter will vouch that I’m like a magpie – easily distracted by shiny objects.

Easy Cauliflower Frittata

To get me to eat vegetables my mom would often hide them in the most unexpected ways. It wasn’t that I hated them but I wouldn’t even try them to begin with, and probably just thought I’d hate them. I mean duh, they’re vegetables…Gross! But once she tricked me into having a bite, I was hooked. So it was with…

Delicious, tender, cheesy kohlrabi nests to boost your energy. Cheese Stuffed Kohlrabi Have you noticed a pattern in my recipe posts this year? Cheese.

If I don’t have few (pre-sliced) varieties in my fridge when she comes over I’m in trouble. The other day she announced her favorite color was CHEESE. Atta girl! We got the biggest kick out…

Simple Egg Pie

Layers of filo pastry soaked in egg mixture then baked to golden perfection make this simple egg pie. Simple Egg Pie This egg pie (jajara – /yaya-ra/) recipe has been handed down through generations. It is so simple that I doubt it is my home country’s heirloom, but ask any grandmother and she’ll beg to differ.
