Tahini Toast with Pickled Fennel

This recipe sounds simple and something you might think of overlooking; however, when you combine really good crispy cracker, topped with savory sweet fennel pickles and generously spread of an earthy tahini infused with lemon,olive oil, and honey, top it off with a creamy avocado & pepper, the dish is a revelation. Like crostini, this cracker holds up well, which got me thinking it would make a great breakfast or anytime snack!

You finished the last bite! and you didn't have a chance to prepare yourself mentally.......that would be your last bite. 😦

Love & Za’atar- what is a name

Or shall I say – what’s THIS name? ‘Love & Za'atar’ sums pretty much everything I could ever think to write about at this point…including my comfort-obsession with Arab food.  Za'atar is Arab word for Thyme, Summer Savory, Oregano, & Marjoram.
