    Certainly, this cuisine really matches the taste that I’ve been craving for! The blending of recipes were really perfect especially for my family who loves the flavor. Similar to "Square of lamb with fricassee of artichokes" and "Baked Chicken Noodle Casserole" which I discovered at www.gourmandia.com and www.wikichicken.com. You can take a glimpse at those sites for more interesting recipes and you’ll surely love it. Have fun!! - 16 Jan 2012
