New year, new flavors in my kitchen. Today I am sharing a fantastic and very tasty dish, Shakshuka recipe.
Last October I was invited to New York city as one of the BHG Stylemakers of 2016. What an honor! I was so excited and enjoyed every bit of the three-day event in New york City. Our days were filled with so much inspiration. Padma Lakshmi was the closing speaker of the event and I listened to her beautiful story that truly inspired me.
I love to cook.
And I love to eat.
I love flavors…, and I am so lucky (genetically) that I can eat anything and everything I want without gaining weight.
I love to use spices when I cook and I do use them on a daily basis but, my spice collection was pretty much reduced to 5-6 things.
Salt, pepper, basil, parsley, chicken seasoning and garlic powder.
These are the spices I use literally every day, however, cumin, coriander, turmeric…I pull them out only once in a blue moon. To tell you the truth, I didn’t even have these spices in my drawer.
Reading Padma’s book on the way home totally made me stop at the store and buy these spices.
The first dish I made using these spices was the SHAKSHUKA. An amazing one skillet dish.
