Aside from the quesos, meatballs, and stuffed peppers, the entire month is really just a chicken wing gorge-fest. In the span of the past few weeks I've grilled and fried six different variations, each with its own glories to bask in, but the one that excited me the most are these spicy cumin wings. More

Dinner Tonight: Moroccan Spinach and Chickpeas

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 19 comments

I had assumed that the mixture of spinach and chickpeas was solely an Indian combination. The creaminess of the spinach is a perfect match for the hearty chickpeas, and with the addition of a few spices, it could turn into a satisfying full meal. Well, it turns that if you change some of those spices and add an interesting new thickener, you can end up in Morocco with a completely new dish. It's kind of astonishing. More

Spice Hunting Max Falkowitz 23 comments

After black pepper, cumin is the most-used spice on Earth. A flower related to parsley originating around Egypt (spices have weird family trees), it's followed people around wherever they go.

And for those who want great flavor but can't handle much spiciness, cumin offers much more flavor and aroma for its heat than many chiles. More
