Since we moved here to Belgium, I’ve actually spent a good deal of time preparing dinners for family and friends at home. Then over spring and summer, I got so hooked in making soups and pasta dishes.

Go meat! A few meat dishes got my attention that I chose to share the recipes here. I always enjoyed preparing this herbed lamb with crushed potatoes; just placing everything in the oven and you get this luscious lamb dish in half a time. Then this chicken adobo with merguez was a happy experiment of sorts.

Soups for spring. This year I started what I called “spring soup series,” to showcase my favorite soup recipes. I blogged about fish chowder, carrot and coriander soup, egg drop soup, asparagus soup, and tom yum goong. These soup recipes are really a must-try!

Loca over pasta. Lastly, before I had my blogging hiatus, I fancied over pasta and so I shared a garlicky pasta menu and a Roman-style carbonara.

So What’s Next for Great Taste in 2016?  Now that we’re officially settled in Belgium, I look forward to hosting more home dinners with family and friends, getting more dining experiences around Belgium, and exploring more new recipes.
