Tabouli, or tabbouleh, is essentially a parsley salad. There is a little bit of bulgar wheat in it but the parsley is intended to be the star and carry the day. David Lebovitz even did a post about it about a month ago on his blog and you can see that it’s basically just a […]
There’s nothing like a cold pasta salad on a hot summer day. But, as much as I love mayonnaise mixed into regular old tuna fish or hard boiled eggs I really rebel against it when it’s mixed with pasta. It just doesn’t work for me so I tend not to make many cold pasta salads.

Spring has sprung, school is winding down, and life has become mind boggling chaotic. There is something wrong in my world when I look ahead at the next two months and realize I don’t have a single weekend free and unscheduled until after the middle/end of July! The sad result is that I’m going to […]
