Mexican Rice

Growing up in the UK, I was not exposed to Spanish or Mexican cuisine till I got married and spent a few years in Texas with my husband. All my Mexican dishes are courtesy of our neighbors back there who used to invite us home every so often. Even after we settled in the UAE, I have never forgotten the flavor and aroma of those dishes. Now each time I cook Mexican Rice or whip up a guacamole, I remember my old neighbors fondly.

Apple Cake

Summer is on its last leg and autumn is almost upon us. The children are back in school and I have nothing much to do all day. Except try out all the recipes that I brought with me to Dubai. If I was back home in Scotland, it would be apple picking time. There would be big bushels of apples on our kitchen table and the children would always get an apple with their school lunch.
