Long busy day since early morning guess Sumner events started already!
Was invited to a big family breakfast gathering at my uncle’s house and as usual I love to bring a special dessert or dish with me so today’s pick was something new, Oreo and Caramel Popsicle.
Though recipe is very easy and simple but it’s a bit messy process specially dipping in chocolate and arranging them in a nice arrangement.
Oreo ones consists of crushed Oreo (24 pieces) with two tablespoons of heavy cream all mixed well then formed into balls, freeze for two hours then dipped in chocolate.
Caramel ones consists of sweetened condensed milk cooked well till thick and caramelized mixed with plain or Lotus biscuits.
Taste was great but I’m not pleased with final look, next time I’ll decorate them differently,guess process needs more patience 😀
A weekend full of happy events, family lunches and parties,ended with the beautiful wedding of my beloved cousin.
Beautiful party full of love and joy, wish the bride and groom a happy life ahead
Today’s morning was also extra special, breakfast with my besties, can’t get enough of these warm gatherings,always full of laughter and old memories, I always thank God for having the best friends in the world.
Orders for today was date rolls and lunch was mellow and spaghetti with veggies.
Though I post this recipe of making a healthy dish of fava beans many times but it’s always requested.
Did one this morning and took with me to a lovely breakfast gathering at our dear friend’s house.
I use a can of cooked fava beans,heat it very well then add it to a mixture of chopped green or dry onions,chopped tomatoes,fresh mint and parsley leaves,juice of half a lemon,1 small spoon of cumin powder,dried mint,paprika,salt, a sprinkle of hot chili powder and olive oil.
Two lovely friends came to visit this morning and since I woke up so early today I decided to bake some ka3ek.
A small simple breakfast with minted tea,I always feel good about myself when I bake breads don’t know why, guess it’s the smell maybe.

* 2 tablespoons oil.
* 1 tablespoon instant yeast.
