Vegan Fajitas

I always enjoy adding a bit of background info to my recipes, however with Fajitas I really didn’t want to add anything because of its really gory history as it’s related to particular parts of the cow, bla, bla, bla and really this is a vegan recipe and I can do without all the gory details… I’m sure if you’re interested you can google “fajitas history” and all kinds of info will pop up.

I first tasted fajitas back in my days in Canada, and yes, they were the regular, normal fajitas, not the original because, from what I understand they were Continue reading “Vegan Fajitas”

Couscous Salad

Couscous is one of the staple foods of the Maghrib (western North Africa). Couscous is made from two different sizes of the husked and crushed, but unground, semolina of hard wheat using water to bind them. Semolina is the hard part of the grain of hard wheat (Triticum turgidum var. durum), that resisted the grinding of the relatively primitive medieval millstone.

My Hobby

I love painting.

Dubai

4 days in Arabland!

Dubai is a city of extremes! Even though the luxury and grandeur are easily seen, one must not forget those that contribute daily, probably in most cases living in very harsh conditions, to its constant development. Nothing is impossible. If there’s imagination, the money here will certainly achieve it. It’s a combination of old and new and even though many might not like it, we can’t ignore that it’s one of a kind and its unique beauty has to be appreciated.
