Protein Rich Dishes – a mega marathon

September is here. When I think about what I did in the past 8 months this year, the answer seems to be only ‘planning’. I did not execute all of them but to my credit, I have made few hundred plans. One of them is this Mega Marathon in which my blogging family and I…

Labneh

The third and final dish of the Lebanese cuisine theme is Labneh which stands testimony to the fact that not all awesome dishes need to have a tough recipe. Labneh is seen as Lebanese cream cheese and is just as thick and creamy. And all you need to make yourself a batch of labneh is…
