Sito’s Kitchen – Making Maldoum

Standard

Hey everyone…  I just uploaded a new video with my mom in an episode of “Sito’s Kitchen”.  Today, we are making “Maldoum”, an eggplant dish.  So good.  You could certainly leave out the meat to make it vegetarian.

I hope you enjoy and I’ll let the video speak for itself.

 

Thanks for the love and support of my blog and YouTube channel.  Your comments and emails are so important to me.  To mom, too.

Homemade Naan and Pita Bread

Standard

Hey, I know it’s been a while since I put a recipe on my blog. I have been putting them directly on YouTube/Instagram (the devil.. lol) or Facebook.

I’m posting a video I did today where I made Naan and Pita Bread from a two ingredient dough made with Flour and Greek Yogurt.  Check out my other videos on YouTube to see how I make the dough.

 

I’ve been balancing work (the devil.. lol), family, art and cooking.  Can I get 2 extra days to the weekend, please??

Thanks for being here and all your comments. Lots of love to you, my subscribers.. you mean so much to me.

Hey wonderful followers –  I’m back with a new cooking video with mom. This time we are making a lentil and onion dish called “Mujadara”.  It’s pronounced “em-jed-darrah”.

It’s so great to get mom in the kitchen again.  So happy she is still wanting to do this with me. I’m am truly blessed.

Anyway, enjoy the video and I’ll be back with another recipe one on my own and hopefully getting another art video lined up.

Sito’s Kitchen – “Itch”

Standard

Well, hello my friends and Happy Summer.

I sure hope you are all enjoying your weather wherever you are. We have had such a strange summer with lots of little thunderstorms and sunny, hot days.  It just feels good to leave the house without grabbing a jacket and walking in warm weather.  It doesn’t last long, so better enjoy it while we can, right?

Today, I am posting a video of Sito’s Kitchen with mom and I making a great dish called Itch (pronounced “eech”).  This simple dish is great alone, in a salad or as a scoop-able dip/appetizer.

As I write this, I realized you could replace the bulgar with quinoa.  Get creative, but the tomato paste is key here.  Take this to a party and you will be the talk of the town. LOL!!

I love hearing from you. Please leave a comment and like my post if you do enjoy it. Don’t forget to hit the thumbs up and subscribe.  I would love it if you shared with with your friends. 

I’ll be ready for an art video soon, so stay tuned for that.

“See” you soon

Sito’s Kitchen – “Hushweh”

Standard

Hey friends.. how is everyone doing in your part of the world?  We are getting better weather.. for a duck.   Spring is trying to emerge here in Massachusetts, but it’s coming.  We’ve had a couple of tease days of summer.  So nice by the ocean.

Well, I have a new video with my mom up.  We made a rice stuffing called Hushweh.  We pronounce it “HUSHOO”.  This dish is amazing.  This is what we grew up on… as you can tell that I’m not a size 0.. haha.  I’m so happy that my mom, at 91, wants to still do these with me.  It’s what she grew up with since she was a little girl… cooking, sewing and just taking care of others. Lots of sacrifice.  I don’t know how she did it, but you just do.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by.  I love all your comments and support. Don’t forget to LIKE the video and subscribe.

We’ll be back soon with a few more recipes.  In the meantime, enjoy!!

Please let me know if you try this recipe and how it came out.  I could never get the rice right.  Secrets are the key.

Love yaz

Farmer’s Market Chunky Vegetable Soup

Standard

20140921_161155

Well, here I am.  Back again, but with culinary art this time.

You’d never know it was the first day of Fall, since it’s about 80 degrees and muggy out today

Every Sunday, our town has a Farmer’s Market that we walk down to. What a fun place to visit.  Live music playing, all kinds of pastries, produce, gifts, breads, cheeses.. you name it.   I wanted to buy some fresh veggies to make a big pot of soup; big and chunky. What a difference getting produce from the farms instead of the grocery store.  I also had some vegetables at home that I needed to use up.  From the market, I got fresh leeks (which I have never cooked with), green beans and carrots. Let’s go home and cook, shall we?

I feel like I’ve made this recipe before, but it always comes out different.  I chopped up all the vegetables to bigger chunks.. think stew size.  I don’t measure, but I probably used 1-2 cups of each. Leeks, summer squash, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli and a few white potatoes.  Add what you want, really, this is what I had.

In a big pot, drizzle some olive oil and start to saute all the veggies together, while stirring and tossing around. This will take about 20-30 minutes.  You want the veggies to start to soften a little.  Add whatever seasonings you’d like.  For me.. salt, pepper, granulated garlic, dash of allspice and paprika.

Once you feel they are a little soft, add 4 cans of vegetable stock. I used College Inn, low sodium.  Let that start to simmer, then add a 1/8 of a cup of tomato paste.  Again, if you want more, then go ahead. I wanted a hint of tomato taste. You can tell by my spoonful of paste, I didn’t measure.  What can I say, I take after my mom. (visit us on YouTube; look for the “Sito’s Kitchen” videos).

Let it all simmer for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are soft and you’re done.  I added about a cup of frozen corn kernels toward the end.

Also, at the market, I got a loaf of fresh garlic herb bread from a local bread maker.   Serve a slice of that with the soup, topped with a little shredded parmesan cheese and oh my gosh, people.. it’s amazing.  I wish you were all with me around my table.  It’s all low fat.. well, except for the 3 slices of bread that I had.. shhhhh. Well, I had to test it, didn’t I?

Note: If you don’t want to stand and cut up all the vegetables, get pre-cut ones from the market.  It’s a simple recipe, even for the kitchen challenged.  And… pssst.. if you really want it easier, use frozen veggies. Vegetables, spices, broth… BAH-ZING!  Done.

Well, that was fun and it’s great to “see” you all again.  I’m working on an art post now, as I get ready for the Art is You event in Stamford, CT that’s coming up.

Thanks for sticking it out and continuing to support me. I know I’ve been absent. We’ve had some illnesses in the family, so, Judy to the rescue… and of course that 4 letter word… W-O-R-K! Does it to me all the time.  I keep striving for balancing. That’s all I can do.
