Last fall, I had my first falafel with Ashley and Abby.

It was one of the best moments of my life. Why had I never tried it before?

Want to know what’s even worse? I haven’t had it since! Problems, people. Big problems.

So when Andrea posted some delicious looking falafel yesterday, I instantly knew what I was making for dinner tonight. Except I couldn’t wait. I had to have it for lunch.

And since falafel does not a meal make for Mr. How Sweet, I’m getting it all to myself and having more for dinner. It is SO delicious. But you have to check out Andrea’s recipe and pictures because they blow these out of the water. And I’m not just saying that because I have a huge girl crush on her. But I do. She is the best writer on the web and makes me pee my pants laughing. Sorry, is that too much information?

    These look amazing. Tony hates when we don’t eat the same thing for dinner, but I like it… more for me!

    mmm they look wonderfully light and fluffy, not the greasy and heavy ones that can be so disappointing. I definitely need to give these a try :)

    Falafel is one of my favorite meals. I’ve never made it on my own though. This is definitely my ideal lunch, too :)

    man looking at these again I had a flashback to buying falafels on the streets of Cairo for 1 penny! They were so toasty and delicious. Why can’t food cost that much here?? :P

    If falafel was on the menu tonight, I was going to pick up Capital Grille on the way home from work.

    I’m totally making these this weekend and also not sharing with the hubs. Once I told him what hummus was I thought he’d never eat it again. Turns out he’ll eat almost anything on a tortilla chip. Almost anything…
    And I agree- total girl/blog crush!! And your pictures are beautiful too :)

    I haven’t had falafel in so long! Partly because it made me weird: I went through a phase of buying a packet mix, mixing a bit with water, microwaving it, then eating it with a spoon. For realz.

    First, when I tasted, I fall in love with them. I think, I’ll try your recipe!
    (Oh my god! I can’t read this awesome blogs like yours, because I don’t know, what will I try first!)

    I am a big fan of falafel but have never made it because of ALL THAT OIL. These look wonderful. Thanks for sharing, and for introducing me to Andrea’s blog. She’s got a great story, and her posts look great. I love meeting new bloggers!!
