As I have mentioned before, The Hungry Tiger is one of my favorite food blogs. Ms. redfox, the owner, recently posted about a delicious looking lentil snack called kibbeh. Lentils are one of my favorite things, so I just had to try it.
I've recently re-read two books about food, that are not cookbooks. One of them is a book that I must have picked up some years ago, probably during one of my bargain bin raids at Barnes & Noble or a similar store. It's called Feast Here Awhile: Adventures in American Eating, by Jo Brans.
I have been in search of the recipe for a soup that is sold by Knorr in dried soup form as Graziella. I've never seen this outside of Switzerland, though to be honest I haven't spent much time looking at dried soup packets when I travel!
