ps:  If you're wondering .. what the heck are these mystery spices anyway? And labna? Never heard of it? 

Yep .. I was floating in the same boat until a few months ago .. introduced via a recipe typical of Israel which used a number of these middle-eastern flavors. I've since learned to love my favorite ethnic grocery store.

A few links ..

Sumac:   A good article from thekitchen.com 

Zaatar:  From thespicehouse.com

Labna:   From SDS Food.com and livestrong.com  .. more info and some cooking ideas
