Get My Favorite Recipe

September is a time when we tend to experience a change in routine. Kids are back in school, and meals need to be planned. With everything going on, it is a great time to get back into the swing of things. There seems to be something unique about the autumn air that makes it the perfect time to start fresh and try delicious food recipes from my blog. So as the leaves begin to change color, it is an excellent reminder to take a deep breath and enjoy the start of a new season.

I have some news from my garden. We harvested three small cantaloupes. They were delicious! My husband and I debated whether the watermelon was ready to harvest, and unfortunately, by the time we cut it, it was overripe. Our garden’s Ringo and Zingo rabbits were happy. After we cut the watermelon open, we collected and dried the seeds for fun! 

I also harvested so many peppers. Some were sweet, and some were hot.

I stuffed the sweet peppers with rice and lamb and cooked them in the homemade tomato sauce! For the hot peppers, I got carried away. I pickled them like banana peppers and jalapeno peppers. I sliced them thin and flavored them with dry zaatar herb and whole sumac pepper. The habanero peppers’ heat was on a whole different level. I had to wear gloves, a face mask, and goggles. Thank god I had already stocked up on those supplies since covid started. Who knew I would use them to make a hot sauce? I even had to keep my dog Mia at the neighbor’s house until I finished. 

Although it was spicy, I made the most delicious mango Habanero hot sauce with a hint of cinnamon and honey sauce. This delicious sauce will have your mind blown! The best part is that all these tasty food recipes will be posted on the blog for September!

There are so many national days in September. 

From cheese pizza day on September 5th to labor day, there is world gratitude day on September 21st. Here are our top September food recipes you must try! I know September can be a busy time with kids back in school, so I kept the recipes simple and easy to make.   

Black Sea Bass on The BBQ 

Black sea bass is a delicious, mild, and delicate white fish that is perfect for grilling on the BBQ. The fish is lemony and is paired with a delicious tomato, garlic, and shallot sauce that brightens up the flavor of the fish. This fish is perfectly succulent, tasty, and well seasoned. Another bonus is that by cooking outside, you can eliminate many dirty dishes and only use the ones you are eating with. This makes barbecued black sea bass the perfect easy meal with very little cleanup.

Braised Lamb Shanks 

These braised lamb shanks are tender, and juicy and will immediately fall apart as soon as your fork touches them. They are quickly seared on all sides to seal in the amazing flavors of the lamb and then left to cook for an hour and a half. This is one of those meals that tastes like you spend hours making it, but in reality, you can just let the pot do all the cooking. Once you put the stock and seasonings into the pot, the lamb will tenderize all on its own.

Grilled Eggplant With Yogurt Sauce 

Eggplants are smooth, creamy, and have the most amazing lightly mild flavor. When they are grilled, they also have a rich smoky flavor, especially if you cut them thinly. These grilled eggplants taste amazing when paired with the creamy, lightly acidic yogurt sauce. The yogurt sauce has plenty of Middle Eastern flavors that give the dish a cultural essence.
