Cracked wheat mixed with veggies and perfectly seasoned, a truly delicious Summer salad… Looking at the cracked wheat that was sitting comfortably in my pantry, I had to ask myself this question: how can I turn cracked wheat into something delicious???

The best tasting chicken souvlaki, these are popular Greek fast food… There are a lot of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern restaurants in my city-London, ON and I often dine at these restaurants.

Since then, I had been haunted by this dessert. While searching for trust...

Dinner whipped up in under 15 minutes. Quick, yet filling.. After a long hectic day, who wouldn’t want to see dinner ready on the dining table. The only thing we have to do is just enjoy the food and worry about nothing else. I don’t know how many times I would have longed for the same.

Being a hard-core non-veg, my freezer is always stacked with meat and other meat products. Surprisingly, today I found my refrigerator to be empty; there was neither any meat nor any veggies.
