When garlic is baked whole, it has a milder, sweeter flavor than raw garlic, making it a delicious accompaniment to beef, especially steak. If you’re a garlic fan, baked garlic is addictive; Nick and I can each eat a whole head. — Kerry Dunnington, Tasting the Seasons.
Kibbe, kibbeh, kibbi, kubbeh, or kebbeh is a very famous Levantine dish (if you suffer reading these, I suffer with trying to find the right spelling of these Arabic words). Kubbeh is served as an appetizer, main dish, party food, or even the perfect portable lunch. Kubbeh comes in many shapes, forms, and types. Aleppo (in Syria) is famous for having more than 17 types of it! These include kubbeh prepared with sumac, yogurt, quince, lemon juice, pomegranate sauce, cherry sauce, and other varieties, such as the disk kubbeh and raw kubbeh.
The recipe I am sharing today is for one of the two most famous types of kubbeh, baked kubbeh or kubbeh bel saineh. The other is the fried kubbeh (my favorite type).
Baked kubbeh makes for an elegant dish to serve to friends and family alike. You can serve it with a salad as a main dish or you can make it into smaller portions and serve it as an appetizer. The combination of spices, meat, and bulgur is one you should definitely try if you have not already.

They kindly shared this recipe with me from Baked Elements: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), one of their best-selling cookbooks and a personal favorite, plus an extra note for you:"This recipe is fairly straightforward, but requires time. Don’t rush the specified times as it’s important for the dough and batter to cool and thicken slightly for a perfect bake."I’ve also tried this warmed slightly in a sundae and it’s the best foundation you can imagine. — Yasmin Newman, author of The Desserts of New York (And How to Eat Them All)

Pasta is my ultimate comfort food: Whenever I'm feeling down, tired, or super hungry, pasta with slightly spicy tomato sauce is the dish I crave the most. And this recipe for baked ziti satisfies like almost nothing else can. Because, let's get serious, what's better than layers of creamy ricotta, gooey mozzarella, and nutty parmesan in between tender, tomato-covered noodles? I really can't say.

Oh, but if you want to make this on the weekend, it also reheats nicely on a rushed Monday morning when you are focused on simply getting out of the house without looking like a zombie and so you pack up a Tupperware full of this goodness, tote it to work, and heat it up in the office microwave.

This is one of the easiest recipes to make delicious and healthy fish. It is also the way I prefer eating swordfish, as it reminds me of my childhood. My mom would always make it this way at home and when there was swordfish for lunch or dinner I would always be happy. This is a very good dish for children who do not enjoy eating fish too much, as swordfish steaks do not have bones. You can serve it with a simple green or tomato salad.Click here to see 15 Easy Fish Recipes for Summer.
