Zem Han Restaurant: Enjoy Fine Mediterranean Cuisine

December 17, 2014 1:05 pm

This popular Northborough restaurant specializes in family-style Mediterranean and Turkish dishes featuring classic regional flavors. Try the spiced lamb served with eggplant and basil in a red wine sauce, or dig into a pile of stuffed grape leaves. Dip crispy falafel patties into tangy yogurt sauce, or scoop up mouthfuls of creamy hummus on slices of pita bread. The grilled kebabs are one of Zem Han's specialties, and Yelp reviewers say they shouldn't be missed. You can choose among the many different beef, chicken, and lamb varieties, or order one of the kebab platters to try several flavors all at once.

Whatever you order, be sure to save room for dessert. Enjoy an order of the flaky, sweet baklava filled with honey and walnuts, or try its lesser-known cousin, kunefe, which uses honey and walnuts to transform shredded wheat into a truly delectable dessert that's also heart-healthy.

These 2 Slow Cooker Recipes Make Dinner Easy

December 10, 2014 1:05 pm

Your slow cooker is a lifesaver on busy workdays or when the whole family seems to be running in different directions. Simply prepare the ingredients in the morning, toss them in the slow cooker, and come home to a great-smelling kitchen and a hearty, nutritious meal.

Slow Cooker Arroz con Pollo [Spoonful]
This Southwestern dish isn’t your typical slow cooker meal. Arroz con Pollo—chicken and rice—is flavored with guajillo chili that smells absolutely mouth-watering when it’s cooking. Bell peppers, tomatoes, and peas add nutritious vitamins to this healthy dish, and the rice is filling enough to leave you feeling satisfied.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Pasta Soup [Real Simple]
Everyone loves traditional chicken soup, and this simple recipe only improves that delicious dish. Boneless chicken thighs are full of healthy protein, and veggies like carrots and celery are simply nutritious. A flavorful broth adds a big taste without the fat and calories of a heavy cream, making the soup even better for you. Add fun alphabet or star-shaped noodles for a bit of fun that the kids will love!
