Loubieh Bi Ziet (Green Beans in Oil)

Loubieh Bi Zeit recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I tend to prefer my vegetables crunchy and bordering on raw, but Loubieh Bi Zeit is one dish I make an exception for. A Levantine dish, Loubieh Bi Zeit literally means “green beans in oil”. It’s an accurate description and yet it doesn’t do the dish any justice.

There are nights when I love nothing more than to prepare a meal that takes a variety of ingredients and a few hours to prepare. I do, after all, love the process of cooking. It’s possibly one of my greatest pleasures. But, like the rest of human kind, there are nights when all I want is something to eat that takes little effort. I want the actions to be swift, the ingredient list to be manageable and if something is going to take a bit of time, I’d prefer that time to not require constant babysitting, actions and/or work.

Get Ready for Seasonal Changes with Spring Salad

Spring Salad recipe

With spring just weeks away, I couldn’t resist the urge to do a salad. Not the tuber and sea vegetable salads I’ve been subsisting on, but a bonified green salad.

Make Your Own S’mores Pop Tarts

S'mores Pop Tarts recipe

My childhood wasn’t filled with pop tarts, sugary cereals or game consoles, unfortunately. Instead, it was chock-full with what I like to refer to as hippie-dippie food; there was lots of rice milk, fresh fruit that my mom liked to call dessert, and of course, Latin food. It was a strange combo but I wouldn’t have it any other way. And television? It was strictly monitored, if not nearly prohibited. I think not having fun food and television resulted in an adult who loves nothing more than making homemade pop tarts while watching trashy television.

Experiment with Seafood: Skate with Browned Butter

Skate is one of those oddities most people see in the seafood case and marvel at the wing-like fillets, but would never consider buying; I used to be one of those people. That all changed one night a number of years ago, after a waiter recommended the skate on their menu. Despite looking like something out of a sci-fi horror film, it was delicious.

The Oscars are on Sunday. Are you having a party? A get-together? I’m throwing my boyfriend a birthday BBQ during the day, which is actually taking me a good amount of work, so I’m planning on changing into some pajamas and hanging out at home for the big show. I love eating popcorn with anything remotely movie-related. I think we all do.

Spring is still about a month away, but green things are starting to pop up in the produce aisle and this week my grocery store has a big display of rapini (a.k.a. broccoli rabe). While I love this green simply steamed, or sauteed with a bit of garlic, it also makes for a stunning pasta.

Broccoli and Cheese Tartine: Simple, Comforting, and Filling

I’m not a big shopper. I might be one of the only women on the planet who despises shopping! It’s mainly because in Los Angeles shopping feels like a gigantic hassle. There are large parking garages, a ticket one must get validated and way too many people everywhere. There’s an outside mall that tends to be a one-stop shop for me and luckily this outside mall also houses one of my favorite bakeries in Los Angeles called Short Cake.
