Dolma or also known as sarma, stuffed grape leaves are one of the most popular appetizers in the Mediterranean! They are a bit time consuming so make sure you have an extra pair of hands to help or it could take hours of rolling! I bring in the kids to help, a lot of my friends get together with their moms and aunts and make a whole large pot full! I got stuck making them myself a couple times and it wasn’t fun! Some people are pros at it and can roll so fast….not me! Although it takes time to make them its so worth it!
They taste great and everyone will love them! You can make them with meat or with out, I make both. I don’t add too much meat to mine you can add more to it if you like. Continue reading “Dolma Stuffed Grape Leaves” »

If you like cilantro by all means use it, but if your like me…use parsley!:) I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!:) Continue reading “Fish Biryani” »

Some stores have local pickled cabbage that is intact and just vacuumed sealed not jarred. I have a favourite brand that is jarred, that I just love! Continue reading “Pickled Cabbage Rolls” »
