Another Kibbeh Fiesta.


Hello everybody.

Kibbeh day, intention was to make some mini ones and spread in a pan with nothing else or at least only some fries.

But then one thing led to another, got excited to do more appetizers to complete the Lebanese style, so end result was muhammra, rocca salad, chili potatoes, various types of kibbeh ( even fried the extra dough)  and new olives.

All extremely yummy, my favorite kind of food.

Lamb Chops Over Salt.


Hello again.

Another cooking over salt today, this time with lamb chops. Result was awesome, tender aromatic well done meat.

I simply added spices and rosemary to chops and layered them over a bed of salt with some baby onions and potato.

Cover tightly with foil paper then into the oven for one hour, uncover and drizzle with olive oil. Leave to rest for 10 minutes then dig in.

Chops weren’t salty at all, juicy and tender just perfect. Highly recommended method, I’m now thinking what to try next time 😀

Salt Baked Potatoes with Garlic and Rosemary.



Hello everybody.

Roast beef is for lunch today, usually accompanied with baked potatoes and veggies,which were all done in a different way I saw last night on my favorite source of new recipes Pinterest.

First I’ll start with the beef,sealed in hot oil butter mixture at first in a deep pan then I added some onions and garlic and gradually started adding boiled water and left it to simmer for 3 hours. Removed the beef to rest,added some flour to the sauce to make a gravy, so tender and yummy.

As for the potatoes here are the ingredients and method :
* 2 cups salt.
* medium sized potatoes.
* one whole head of garlic.
* some rosemary leaves.
* 1 tablespoon butter.
* drizzle of olive oil.

* in a deep thick oven pan spread the salt evenly.
* place the potatoes, rosemary and garlic after cutting the hard top.
* cover tightly and bake for 40-50 minutes.
* remove garlic to cool.
* drizzle olive oil on top of potatoes and back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
* meanwhile remove soft garlic pulp and add butter to it, I added a bit of yogurt as well to make a bit sour.
* cut potatoes and add garlic spread in it.


Serve with any roast or chicken.


As for the mushrooms, cut them to big pieces then add butter, oil, garlic, lemon juice, capers, salt and pepper and bake them till tender. Add chopped parsley when done.

Early this morning I was hosted at  Ro’ya TV in an interview to talk about my contributions in Family Flavors magazine, I can humbly say it was very nice and informative, looking forward to more fruitful work and achievements.

Ingredients and method:

* cooked minced meat or cubed veal or lamp as desired.

* boiled and fried cauliflower

* 2-3 cloves garlic.

* one small onion finely chopped.

* lemon juice.

* salt,pepper,all spice, cumin and dry coriander (or fresh)

* saute meat till dry then add garlic and onions.

* add cauliflower and seasoning,leave to simmer, you may add a bit of water if it’s too dry.

Note: to minimize frying you can boil cauliflowers a bit then sautee them with a bit of oil that’ll be enough)
