Here are photos of my different trials making biscotti.
Really can’t decide which one is the yummiest, personally i loved the chocolate and ginger most.
Sometimes when the order is for a close friend I love to try something new for testing and feedback,today I did these super easy crispy thin almond cookies. So east to make though you must be careful baking them, next time i’ll swirl them when hot to give them a nicer shape.
Ingredients and method:
*Beat egg white till all white and stiff .
*Add vanilla.sugar ,oil and flour.
*Fold in almonds slowly, don’t over beat or mix.
* add a tablespoon of batter then flatten it with back of spoon into circles.
* In a 180 degrees heated oven bake cookies for 10 minutes or till golden.
* leave to cool , you can swirl them while hot but you have to be very careful not to break them.
orange marmalade a small gift for my friend.
Long hectic day, even lunch became at dinner time!
I made rice with cubed meat and lots of veggies like carrots,beans,peppers, mushrooms,onions and a small tomato. Very tasty.
On the side I made an avocado dip, mashed two ripe avocados added yogurt, lemon,tahini sauce and salt, topped with tomatoes and chili powder.
Today’s orders were a bunch of crinkles and some cookies, chocolate and ginger, nuts and raisins.
Hope you all had a nice weekend 😀
Dessert was a beautiful freshly baked chocolate cake with syrup on top, green ornament to match the company’s logo shape and color.
Hope they’ll like it.
Here’s the recipe of the other kind I made,molasses and ginger, taste is terrific by the way both sweet and sharp . I may add more ginger next time to sharpen the flavor.
Ingredients and method:
*3/4 cup butter.
*3/4 cup brown sugar.
* 1/4 cup molasses.
* 2 tsp baking powder
*2 1/4 cups flour.
*granulated or raw sugar for coating.
Made this refreshing juice this afternoon, a recipe I saw in one of Jamie Oliver’s tv shows, very cooling in this hot weather.
You simply mix together son=me grated fresh ginger,lemon juice and slices,mints and brown sugar then add some hot water to dissolve sugar then before serving add cold sparkling water.
Very nice one try it.
Remember the detox water I did few weeks ago? Well I’ve been doing it every day now and I really think and feel it’s very useful, gives more energy and freshness.
Yesterday my husband picked a big bunch of chamomile from the farm and I’ve been searching for a good healthy drink that has chamomile in it, search result was this refreshing detox tea, made from freshly grated ginger boiled a bit with hot water then you add some chamomile leaves and leave for few minutes. Pour into a glass with one teaspoon honey,slice of lemon and few fresh mint leaves.
I’m sure most of you know how calming and soothing chamomile is for the nervous and gastrointestinal systems plus it’s great effect on boosting metabolism and immunity. It’s a very good drink in cases of colds and flu and abdominal pains specially in babies
Lunch was green beans stew with rice.
Very busy Saturday as usual,too much was done today.
In an attempt to cut down food or at least try to start a diet I made a big jug of detox water,recipe was shown on Roya TV you simply add two slices of lemons,oranges, one strawberry and a bunch of fresh mint leaves, I also added some ginger slices and rose water. Leave to diffuse for two hours then start drinking from it all day. It’s excellent for cleansing your body from all toxins.
Lunch was pizza and a bowl of couscous salad, this one is simply done by adding hot water to 1/2 cup of Italian couscous till it’s light,tender and fluffy then add it to your regular salad, really yummy.
Lazy day off , had no idea what to cook till after 2 when boys suggested Chinese or chicken with veggies and noodles,which is great cause I have all ingredients and chicken breasts are the easiest to defrost and cook .
When done I suddenly decided to make some Rock Cookies to take with me to some dear friends we’re visiting, thank God I finished just on time,even made a nice packaging
As I said yesterday today’s lunch will be special to compensate for the lousy one, have this recipe ripped off from some magazine long time ago, really rich and juicy and of course it’ll be much tastier if you cook it in the tajin dish or pot Moroccans usually use.
Ingredients and method:
* chicken pieces with bones.
* 1 big chopped onion.
* 4-5 cloves garlic.
* 1 lemon peeled and slices.
* 1 tsp fresh ginger.

* 1 tsp dried thyme.

* Marinate chicken in salt,pepper,onions,garlic,thyme,saffron and ginger for 1 hour.
* heat the pan then add some olive oil, then add chicken pieces without marinate and saute till golden on all sides.
* add all marinade and leave to simmer for 10 minutes.
* add lemon slices and olives,some more slat and pepper if you like.
