Fruit Garden -Dabouq.

Hello everybody.

Been wanting to go to this place for a while now specially after they posted last week that they have an offer on berries ( buy 5 get 2 for free).

Well today since I had some spare time before picking my son from his exam and to stop worrying about it I passed by the Fruit Garden shop located in Dabouq and how happy I was that I went.

Neat,clean, cheerful place with helpful staff and very good prices, they even told you should come take pictures on Friday cause all Asian fruits arrive Thursdays,will definitely go back.

They have many services like preparing and cutting your veggies, sanitized herbs and vegetables, juices and fruit baskets, my dream shop.

Can’t wait to do yummy things with those fresh berries, started by a detox water mix with some mints.

Lunch today is pizza,again comfort food cause of the exams.

Hawaiian Blessing.

Hello everybody.

Picnicking today, beautiful weather, company and place.

Went with my cousins to a farm near Amman, each one brought something, my share was a dessert so I made my specialty Hawaiian Blessing.

This dish is always a favorite and gone in minutes cause it’s not too sweet and full of fruits plus refreshing in hot weather.

Happy Birthday Sis ♡♥( Hawaiian Blessing)

Hello everybody.
Though thousands of miles away this year but still,a usual custom I made my baby sister a birthday cake,actually not a baby now for sure, but guess she’ll always be my baby sis no matter how old. Wish you happiness, health and joy in your new life my dear.

As for the cake, to be honest I baked one yesterday, new recipe for a strawberry cake but it was a failure, I was planning to take it to my Mom’s cause her cousins are coming and we’ll celebrate long distance.

Anyway as I said cake wasn’t good at all even the custard vanilla frosting tasted like starch . I always make the same mistake, try new recipe when guests are coming, big big mistake.

I ended up doing Nescafe Croquant cake again this morning, to be on the safe side. I also made a kind of fruit custard pie called Hawaiian Blessing, similar to the one I made on Valentine’s .
Made also spinach tabouleh and french pizza.

ingredients and method:
* plain biscuits.
* 1 can sweetened condensed milk.
* 1 cup milk.
* 3 big spoons starch.
* 1 tablespoon butter.
* 1 pack cream.
* 1 can pineapple.
* strawberries and kiwi.
* coconut.

* mix condensed milk, milk, half juice of pineapple, butter and starch very well then heat till boiled and thick, keep mixing while on stove so it won’t clot.
* remove from heat then fold in cream.
* layer biscuits in spring pan and sprinkle with pineapple juice.
* add half of mixture then add sliced strawberries.pineapples and coconut.
* add another layer of biscuits and repeat
* cool in fridge for several hours.
* toast some coconuts to decorate top and slice kiwi to sides.

You can use any kind of fruit you have, excellent dessert for hot summer days.:)

Watermelon Fiesta !!!

Hello everybody.

Nobody home for lunch today and I was busy all morning making Date Rolls for my friend, when when done I was in no mood to cook anything.

This morning I bought a lovely watermelon, been waiting for it’s season to make these lovely servings or decorations all done with watermelons,fruits and cheese, as usual shape wasn’t as perfect as photos you see in magazines or websites but not bad for a first time, I’m sure this needs lots of practice and special cutters and lots of Photoshop :).

I also made a lovely refreshing juice with them,thanks to my Facebook friend who recommended it, I mixed watermelons with Tang lemon and mint and two ripe bananas with lots of ice. Very cooling in this hot day :)

I’ll post my photos and the original ones, you compare and judge!!!
