Growing up in a Lebanese home, food was always the center of everything. Every gathering small or large there would be food to bring us together. Even the times I know my parents struggled, there was food. Abundace, feasting and sharing food is what I am passionate about, following suit directly from my parents. When I can't do anything for someone who is sad, lonely or hurting, food is there to support and nourish. My home is always open and food will always flow. So as my last Instagram challange for @thelittleplantation this is my entry for "Brady Bunch". A board filled with the beautiful fruits, vegetables, cheeses and meats that not only fill your belly but is often the center for any celebration and gathering. Thank you to Kimberly for challenging me these last few weeks, often stepping outside my comfort zone and learning a great deal. 💕 #foodphotoinsta #cosetteskitchen #charcuterie #charcuterieboard . . . #huffposttaste #feedfeed #tastingtable #foodandwine #eater #eeeeeats #thekitchn #thatsdarling #f52grams #tastespotting #onthetable #beautifulcuisines #myopenkitchen #huffpostgrams #storyofmytable #lifeandthyme #foodie_features #myopenkitchen #platedpics #goopmake #buzzfeedfood #foodstyling #foodandwine #foodblogs #gatheringslikethese #inseasonnow #snapseed #mywilliamssonoma
One of the easiest, inexpensive and delicious meals is chicken thighs, perfect with a side of toum, emulsified garlic sauce. It is a staple in Lebanese cuisine and has been trending all over lately. @seriouseats recently published an article about it! But for us Lebanese it's a staple. Used for marinating, salads, sautéing, garlic bread and more. Chicken thighs are incredibly easy and flavorful to make. Mix a variety of spices I like to use: 1 tsp paprika, 4 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp dry thyme, 1 tsp dry rosemary, 1 tsp all spice, 1 tap black pepper. Keep this mixture in a small jar and use to rub on all over the chicken. Spread a bit of toum + olive oil + spices. Pop tray into oven skin side up and broil the skin for a few minutes, then reduce heat to 375°, roast for 45min-1 hour until juices run clear (165° near the bone). Do a final broil on the skin if needed. Dip your delicious chicken in a side of toum and pita bread. You will be in heaven! Toum recipe on the blog! Try it today, your Superbowl party will thank you! 👍👍 #cosetteskitchen #lebanesecuisine #chicken #superbowl #toum . . #gameday #fromscratch #homemade #huffposttaste #tastingtable #feedfeed #heresmyfood #foodandwine #eater #eeeeeats #thekitchn #thatsdarling #f52grams #tastespotting #onthetable #beautifulcuisines #myopenkitchen #huffpostgrams #storyofmytable #foodie_features #myopenkitchen #buzzfeedfood #foodstyling #foodandwine #foodblogs #gatheringslikethese #shareyourtable
Growing up I didn't realize how good we had it in the food category. My parents made THE BEST food, I just thought everyone ate that way. Fast forward a few decades later and I am quickly realizing that all that goodness was not only delicious but so good for us! I hope to be teaching my kiddos the same. Like this delicious baba ganoush that (2 out of 3) kids devour. Eggplant dip, who would have thought???! But some lemon + garlic + pita chips and you got a winner. Naturally gluten free + dairy free + #vegan + #whole30 compliment! I have had many, many friends ask about this dish, so I hope you enjoy! This is my 2nd week with Kimberly of @thelittleplantation doing the Instagram challange. This first one falls into healthy snack. Hope you give it a try! Recipe in comments and will be on the blog this week with step by step photos. #cosetteskitchen #foodphotoinsta #babaganoush #lebanesecuisine . . . . #huffposttaste #tastingtable #feedfeed #heresmyfood #foodandwine #eater #eeeeeats #thekitchn #thatsdarling #f52grams #tastespotting #onthetable #beautifulcuisines #myopenkitchen #huffpostgrams #storyofmytable #foodie_features #myopenkitchen #buzzfeedfood #foodstyling #foodandwine #foodblogs #gatheringslikethese #glutenfree #paleo #dairyfree
I am drooling as I write this post, this is a shot of my FAVORITE salad! Salad that tastes like my precious za'atar bread (manouché). It's oregano salad with sumac + onion + lemon + oil + salt. That's it! Simple. Fresh. Guiltfree. Have it with some pita and labneh and it will taste exactly like the perfect manouché flat bread. In the summer, I have tons of fresh oregano but as my plant has gone dormant, store bought did the job. This is my final green challenge of the week as part of @thelittleplantation 's series.

How did I almost miss National Peanut Butter Day! I think this holiday was made just for my kids... seriously! These are vegan chocolate peanut butter cookies and are sooooooooo good! Deep dark chocolate + peanut butter, I wouldn't judge you if you smothered some peanut butter on one either.

I am beyond thrilled on how this delicious soup came out, filled with yummy veggies: cauliflower, kale + poatoes are perfectly paired together. A little added toasted quinoa + roasted garlic + cream for a little something extra. Be sure to sign up for blog posts to come right to your inbox, notes about how in stories! Post will be up tomorrow! This is also the 2nd challenge with @thelittleplantation for our green themed week.

We talk so much about community, especially in Portland and building each other up, supporting local businesses. As bloggers sometimes that is hard when there isn't an office you go to daily. We wanted a time to be able to connect with some wonderful creatives. So today I had the honor of co-hosting an amazing blogger event with the lovely @chezlarae . 20+ creatives came out to share food, wine and ideas, how wonderful is that? I am honored to be surrounded by such talent. And a HUGE thank you to Matt and Shannon of @45thparallelwines in St. Johns for hosting us in their beautiful space. Give them a follow and stop in for a glass of wine, cider or beer or grab a bottle to go.

Behold! The Tiger Cake by @food52 . This cake caught my eye a while back and I had to give it a try, although the last time I made it, I made for a friend and didn't get to see the inside. So today I decided to give it a whirl and of course sample a slice before our dinner guests arrive 🤣🤣(quality control). It is rich but light, smooth, not too sweet and perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. But really, I'm just wowed by the stripes that occur naturally with layering. Check out my stories for some behind the scenes. #cosetteskitchen #tigercake #bundt #yearofthebundt . . #huffposttaste #tastingtable #feedfeed #heresmyfood #foodandwine #eater #eeeeeats #thekitchn #thatsdarling #f52grams #tastespotting #onthetable #beautifulcuisines #myopenkitchen #huffpostgrams #storyofmytable #foodie_features #myopenkitchen #buzzfeedfood #foodstyling #foodandwine #foodblogs #gatheringslikethese #bake #thebakefeed #heresmyfood #baking
