Usually, I simply throw a large sweet potato into the oven and roast it whole. My diners may then cut off as much or little potato as pleased them. Since I never did anything more than prick the potato with a fork, I have never posted this dish, because it is hardly a recipe.

Earlier this week I made water crackers for the Dean’s Lunch. I know I just posted this recipe just this morning, but I was not satisfies with what I had produced. Yes, they were crisp and delicious but they were a bit too crisp.

Harissa is a North African condiment of chili and spices. I had never tried it and I thought I would buy a jar of commercial harissa to get an idea of how it was different from other chili pastes. I am afraid it was not a good introductory experience.
I am making my Middle Eastern Easter Feast. In addition to mixed olives and pickles, I saw some fresh garbanzos in my local Middle Eastern market. Pan roasting them with a bit of spice seemed like a quick and easy side dish for a feast.

I wanted some potatoes to go with my rosemary roasted chicken. When I was at the store I saw these tiny marble-sized potatoes. They were so cute I had to have them. They were also the same size as the pre-peeled Chinese garlic that I buy and it just seemed logical to mix them together.
