I love cooking from scratch. There are so many foods that people assume you can't make yourself, but are actually surprisingly easy to do. For example, I grew up always having pancakes from a mix. It takes maybe thirty seconds longer to make them from scratch.

Falafel are a fantastic Mediterranean food that are easy to make yourself, and always impress dinner guests. Tonight I made falafel, my husband grilled vegetables, and we had a picnic on the living room floor and watched Inkheart with our daughters. Fantastic evening.

  1. Looks divine...can I come for a visit and have you feed me!

  2. I'd be delighted; let me know when you can make it.
