I forget where I picked up the idea for this recipe but I do recall it was described as Indianish, which I though was intriguing. Besides the green chilli, there is not much Indian about this tomato rice, which is presented more as a gratin complete with broiled melty cheese on top.

What's not to love about that special combination of a biscuit crust, cream cheese filling, and tangy raspberry topping? This raspberry cheesecake pie is made all the more achievable by going down the no-bake route.

Once you've mastered that the perfect burger is simply minimally-handled minced meat seasoned with salt thrown over a high flame, the customization options are endless. It all started with A Simple Burger. From there we went on to a Roquefort version, and another Chilli-Cheese one.

Bread pudding is a classic favorite in many cultures, with minor flavoring differences to suit transcending tastes across borders. In fact, in this aspect it is much like rice pudding.

I had posted a moussaka recipe way back in 2012 here, and decided it was time for a re-make. This version I dare say is simpler, but most notably it has the addition of potatoes. Two things worthy of noting: to us Arabs, moussaka is an Egyptian dish, not a Greek one.

The number of chocolate cakes on MCW deserves a compilation post. Another chocolate cake recipe is probably not warranted, but can you even say that about chocolate cakes? This one just might be second to the most decadent of the lot.

This is something to make when you don't know what to make. Got puffed pastry and minced meat in the freezer? You're set to go. The wonderful thing here is that you can use any minced meat recipe you may favor: kubba filling, taco-spiced, bolognese... whatever you may have on hand or have an affinity to will work.

I have posted three separate Iraqi variations of dates and sesame (Date Molasses and Tahini Spread, Iraqi Breakfast Sticky Dates, Iraqi Madgooga: Date Sesame Truffles) and ironically this latest one is the most basic by far.
