Spinach Roti and Za’atar Labneh

I have met a lot of lovely people on social media. Many of who are really talented cooks and bakers, specializing in foods I am not very familiar with. Archana from @foodyfables is one of those. Her feed is awesome and food inspiring. If she had a website, I would link this to her, but…

My family’s favorite cut of beef is filet mignon. I love it as is it lower in fat, but still so tender and tasty. Rib eye steaks used to be our go to, but filet has definitely taken the spot as King of the Hill. This meal with the Farro, Filet and asparagus…

Spicy (or not) Black Bean Burgers
