Lovely Meatballs In Buns. 


Hello everybody.

Tried this new recipe I’ve seen in So Yummy page.


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.



Put all in the oven for 15-20 minutes and that’s it.
Easy, delicious and presentable.

Last Days Of Ramadan.

Hello everybody.

I have to admit, I’m super lazy in my posts this Ramadan but I do post daily on banancooking page everyday.

Last days are usually less active iftar time cause everybody starts preparing for Eid. Date rolls orders already in process plus I’m making the super yummy pistachio rose water cookies and rock cookies with nuts and spices.

Today’s iftar was a kind of breakfast than dinner, cheese platter and kishek.




Last samboosek in Ramadan.



Not a Ramadan related thing but it was a super cake, Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Cake.



Mini qatayef with cream and Nutella.



Another eggplant salad.



Burgers and fries.

Avocado Cheese Burgers.

Hello everybody.

First day of external exams today, a special comfort meal is needed,nothing beats a good burger and fries don’t you think?

Tried my new Lodge cast iron grill,though I did as directed meaning I sprayed it with special oil ( Canola Oil Spray) then heated it well in the oven, all this so as it won’t stick but burgers got stuck a bit. Guess it needs more time or more oil.

Burger topping was mashed avocado with spring onions and garlic, really yummy and rich. I just love avocados.

Burger in a Bun and Ka3ek.






Hello everybody.

Made this awesome dough today,recipe was posted last week on my page done on Roya TV during cooking segment.

Most important thing is to use exact ingredients to get the required Ka3ek taste,we usually buy this kind of bread from bakeries specially the one located downtown called Nasser El-Deen,well these today tasted almost the same and I’ll certainly do them again.

I filled half the dough with half cooked burgers,cheese, tomatoes and ketchup. Ready to be eaten right away, kids just love these.

Dough ingredients :
* 6 and extra half cups flour.
* 2 tablespoons oil.
* 1 tablespoon instant yeast.
* 2 tablespoons sugar.
* 2 1/2 cups lukewarm water.
* 2 teaspoons salt.
* 1/2 cup milk.
* some sesame seeds.
* some semolina to sprinkle under the Ka3ek.

* Mix water,yeast and sugar and leave ten minutes till bubbles are formed.
* Mix flour,salt and oil then add yeast and water and knead well.
* leave in a warm place till it rises ( 1-2 hours)
* knead again then form it to loaf shape or place a metal ring inside to make a circle in the middle.
* Brush with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds in top.
* leave to rise again then bake in a well heated oven for 15 minutes.

As for the buns just spread it add burgers, tomatoes, cheese and ketchup then close all and bake.
