What Do I Actually Know How To Cook?  

blearweh: lebanese baklava
As I was reorganizing the Library I decided to add a section for "Cooking" and found I had posted only pound cake recipes. That raises the question ... what do I actually know how to cook? I came up with the following list of things that I can cook sufficiently well worth recording:
  • B'learweh - Lebanese Baklava, a flaky pastry
  • Tabbouleh - Lebanese parsley salad
  • Kibbey Nayye - Lebanese steak tartare
  • Lebanese Red Wine Vinegar Scrambled Eggs with Lavash
  • French Toast
  • Olive Oil and Garlic Marinated Buffalo New York Strips
  • Kafta - Lebanese Meatballs
  • Lahem Mishwa - Lebanese Shish Kebabs
  • and of course, Pound Cake
There's a subtle theme there. There are a few other things that get made in our house that I make to other people's recipes - Hummus, Cleveland Burgers, "California Dreaming Style" Grilled Chicken Salad - and a few other things that we eat that my wife or friends typically prepare. I'll try to go through these recipes and post as many as I can.
