~Bacon Fries! Once in a while I have, what I like to call…”Duh moments”. Actually, I have them a lot, but this time it resulted in something dangerously delicious. Crispy French Fries crusted in bits of smoky Bacon! ~That’s it..nothing complicated, or confusing. It’s hard to believe that the combination of those two things could cause such a stir. ~No one was even! What you’ll need to see the dark side of everyone you know: Double accordingly for more will need more Bacon! Frozen Shoestring French Fries (I used about 4 cups) 1lb Bacon..crispy and crushed! 1 Egg (not 2 as shown) 1 Cup Milk Directions: Defrost the fries. Crush up the Crispy Bacon the best way you can… Mix the Egg and the Milk, add the Fries and let them get evenly coated in the liquid… Coat the moist Fries in the Bacon Crumbles and bake them at 350 degrees for approx. 30 minutes, or until they’re evenly golden and crispy… Serve them up and watch everyone you thought you knew turn into animals…haha!

Tatbileh-Rice with Meat and Pine Nuts On my last trip to Nazareth I was invited to eat in the home of a local resident who lives right in the center of this vibrant and colorful city. The hostess made a delicious chicken stuffed with fragrant rice and hand chopped meat which she topped with golden toasted almonds. The rice is known as tatbileh, not to be confused with the lemon, garlic hot pepper sauce of the same name. This dish is flavored with allspice and cinnamon, dominant in Palestinian and Syrian cuisine. 2 cups rice (I used basmati) 500 grams chunk of beef (in my case leftover steak) 1 teaspoon ground allspice 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 2 teaspoons salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts or almonds 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil or lamb fat Cut the meat into very small pieces, about the size of a pea. This mixture is excellent as it is, served with fresh salad but it also can be used to stuff chicken like the way I had it In Nazareth.

Everyone was always so impressed when I told them “I won the gold in the New York State fencing championships” as they made a show of raising their eyebrows and tilting their heads in slight surprise and perhaps awe, I would like to think. But of course it was all a joke since there were no other female contestants at this prestigious event. The organizers scoured the auditorium and found two bewildered nine year olds whom I was told to compete against as it was hardly ethical to present me with a marble mounted trophy for just sitting there. Umberto teaching my son tricks in archery Umberto's and Elene's farm This is why my carrot fritters are truly the best- it is the only ones that I have eaten in my entire life, there is nothing to compare to them. 5 medium sized carrots (about 2 cups), finely grated 1 onion, grated
