This is a short post. I made a variation of shakshuka, the middle eastern dish of eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce. The flavor backbone is cumin, coriander, dried rosemary, and cayenne because I have never seen fresh chilies in Russia. To make my version a bit healthier and more well-rounded, I added some fresh tomatoes and lots of chickpeas. This is the first meal I've made in my new apartment! And I was very pleased with how it came out. The new stove heats up much more quickly and is generally more responsive than the old one (both the old stove and the new stove are electric).
