Hello everybody.

We had a small lunch gathering today,my hubby made sheep pluck a meal not all favor so another dish was a must, made chicken fatteh was the option.


For dessert I searched for a new chocolate recipe cause I know it’s a favorite for my boys and niece. Came across this easy two in one kind of thing.
Peanut butter cookies dough scooped into brownie dough then baked all together, end result was really delicious. Actually not a bite left.

* 1/2 cup butter.
*1 cup sugar.
* 1 egg.
* 1/2 cup flour.
*1/3 cup coccoa.

*1/2 cup sugar.
* 1 egg.
* 1 cup flour.
*1/4 cup creamy peanut butter.

Hello everybody.
Tried a new recipe today, loved its name “Broockies ” meaning it’s a mix of both brownies and chocolate chip cookies.

Recipe needed some adjustments specially the chocolates chip dough, it was so soft and flattened when baked, good thing I did one as test first.

End result was really good after adding more flour, I may decrease butter amount next time.

Ingredients and method :
Brownies dough :

  • 10 tablespoons butter.
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar.
  • 2/3 cup sugar.
  • 1 egg and one egg yolk.
  • 1 tsp vanilla.
  • 1 1/4 cups flour.
  • 1/2 cup cocoa.
  • 1 tsp baking powder.
  • beat butter  and sugar till creamy then add other ingredients till you get a stiff dough.

Chocolate chip cookie dough.

  • 10 tablespoons butter.
  • 1 cup sugar.
  • 1 large egg plus one yolk.
  • 1 tsp vanilla.
  • 2 1/2 cups flour.
  • 1 tsp baking powder.
  • 1 cup chocolate chips.
  • Beat sugar and butter till creamy then add whisked eggs and other dry ingredients.
  • wpid-wp-1451837716161.jpg

Make a small ball of each dough then press them gently together to form a cookie shape then line on baking sheet or parchment paper.


Bake in  a medium heated oven for 8-10 minutes.

leave to cool then store in a well closed jar.

Hello everybody.

What a crazy busy full of events weekend, actually events started since Thursday where we had a Mansaf on the honor of our lovely cousin coming back home from Germany and on the occasion of my son’s 20’th birthday the next day, was followed by brownies and ice cream for dessert. Then dinner invitation at my auntie’s house .

Friday morning we all gathered for breakfast, usual Friday menu. Afternoon we went to Irbid for Caraway at my husband’s cousin to congratulate her for the new baby boy, then went to my cousin’s house for a big family gathering as a farewell for those leaving back after the vacation, we had Knafeh and a big cake on the occasions of both my dear twin cousin’s birthday and wife of one of them. It was a very nice party full of love <3

Today I helped my dear friend baking cookies for a party she’s holding,I made her chocolate chip  and oatmeal raisin cookies and cupcakes .

Lunch was my son’s favorite burgers with onions and mushrooms, above all this I made fig jam and as usual went grocery shopping !!

Am I right or not that this weekend was crazy??
