Hello everybody.

I now strongly believe that some recipes do actually call me to try them, I know this might be weird but true cause I look through many many recipes on daily basis but not all interest me to try them.

Well couple of days ago I saw this light healthy recipe in an account I follow on  named Bandora (means tomatoes) , vegan type of kibbeh great for vegetarians or lint.

Fifty percent of ingredients is burgul, other half is sautéed onions and tomatoes, raw green onions, carrots,zucchini, coriander, parsely, mint, chili paste,salt, pepper,summaq and olive oil. All together in the food processor.

You simply empty top of buns, sprinkle with garlic, parsely olive oil or butter then some cheese.

 

Add sautéed meatballs, a bit of marinara sauce then another layer of cheese.

Hello everybody.


Though I believe love should be celebrated daily not on a specific day or time, but it’s becoming a festive day.

We celebrated my way, simple healthy breakfast full of love with little heart-shaped tomatoes and strawberries.

Hello everybody.

Lots of baking this week, no complaints at all cause it’s merely a lot of fun to me. The smells,aroma and warmth gives one a big sense of pleasure.

 

 

Sometimes once I start I end up baking various kinds, since oven is on as my mom says.

It all started with date order, then another one of anise date ones. Later my friend wanted a selection of cookies to take with her to Saudi Arabia, made rock cookies, coconut lime cookies, oatmeal cranberries and ended the day with chocolate chips for her sweet son.

All was yummy and work though tiring but worth the happy ending.

Hello everybody.

A simple elegant cheese platter with dried fruits and strawberries with crackers or breads can be the best thing for a small gathering specially if done with love to loving friends.

Quince Jam.

Hello everybody.

Since it’s quince season, jam is a must I guess.Though many people make it  big chunks in syrup but I prefer this way cause it’s easier to spread.
Ingredients and method :

* 1 kg quince fruit cored then grated.

* 5 cups sugar.

* 2 cups water.

* juice and peel of one lemon.

* 1 stick cinnamon.

* 4 pieces cloves.

* wash core and grate quince.

*add sugar, water and lemon juice and peel.

*mix well then add cinnamon and cloves.

* heat till it boils then lower heat and leave to simmer for an hour and half or till quince turns dark and syrup thickens.

NOTE: a quicker way to do it is to cook it in pressure cooker for 20-30 minutes max.

* remove cinnamon stick and fill jam in clean jars.

Muhalbieh with Orange Sauce. 

Hello everybody. 

Did this milk pudding or muhalbieh today for my mother in-law’s gathering. 

So yummy and elegant plus easy of course, milk pudding is same as muhalbieh with caramel recipe but instead I used the orange sauce which contains orange juice, sugar and starch boiled till it thick.
