Grilled Chicken and Hummus Wraps

thumbnail image

 You guys, this little website right here is totally lacking something. A creative director, a food stylist/photograph, a marketing guru and plenty of recipe developers…? That would be my dream team to build the Not Enough Cinnamon brand! Maybe in a few years? It’s definitely on my wish-list! But right now…I’m only referring to lebanese food I can’t believe I’ve only […]

Salmon Tartare

Whenever I think about salmon tartare, it instantly brings my dad to my mind, because he made the best salmon tartare of the whole wide world. And I swear I’m not saying that just because he’s my dad but really, his tartare was to die for. When we were younger, he would make it for any special occasion: a […]

Sausage and Rice Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Before we dive straight into these oh-so-yum sausage and rice stuffed portobello mushrooms that you’re gonna luuuv, can we talk just a little bit about NEC? You might have noticed that last Sunday we launched a brand new design for the website. Can I get a big hooray?! We’ve been working hard on this one […]

Morning Green Smoothie

In this family, we barely eat the same dinner twice, except for some big favorites of mine like baked sweet potato fries that I’ll happily eat every weekend for the rest of my life, or when I’m testing recipes for the blog. But you guys, things are totally different when it comes to breakfast. We eat the […]

Healthy Peach BBQ Pulled Chicken

After making yet another batch of this peach BBQ pulled chicken for dinner tonight, I can confirm two things. It’s pretty scrumptious and it’s definitely one easy meal to prepare. Don’t be fooled by the one hour+ total time because during most of this time, you actually don’t have anything to do. To make the sauce, simply combine all the ingredients in […]

Skinny Cauliflower and Blue Cheese Soup

When I was a kid, I wasn’t too much of a picky eater. I liked most of the things my mom cooked - with a few exceptions. Including, you guess it…cauliflower, which was a big no-no. Even covered in delicious bechamel sauce, there was no way I could eat it (remember, mom?!). I think it was all about the smell, because […]

Better-Than-Caprese Pasta Salad

thumbnail image

On a scale of 1 to 10, pasta salads probably rank very high, with at least an 8 or 9. They’re so convenient and everybody loves them! I remember the first time I made a pasta salad pretty similar to this better-than-caprese one I’m sharing today. It was for a friend’s birthday three years ago. She […]

Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Raise your hands if you have no idea what chimichuri sauce is! Only a few weeks ago I had no clue either and now I’m obsessed. Alright, let’s break the suspense right away, cause I know you’re burning to know. You are, right?! Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce made with herbs (parsley and oregano), garlic, […]

Gordon Ramsay’s Quinoa Salad

thumbnail image

Can I tell you a lil’ secret? This recipe was my first attempt ever at cooking quinoa. I’ve eaten quinoa a few times before, but I had never actually cooked it myself. The truth is, I wasn’t really convinced by its taste and above all, by its texture. My boyfriend Solal just hates it, and really, there’s very little things […]
