Hello everybody.

How’s your weekend so far? cold cloudy weather , it’s like winter all over again :(

Well guess a chicken curry is just perfect in this weather, hot and spicy and a favorite for my eldest son.

As for an option for my hubby who doesn’t like curry at all I made some fried mloukhieh , meaning cooked with some onions ,garlic and minced meat with olive oil, salt and pepper. No broth at all and eaten with bread , don’t know why they call it Bourani Mloukhieh.




Mloukhieh Today 😀


Hello everybody.

Free today, no orders or things to prepare so I cooked at ease though babysitting my bundle of joy but he’s such an adorable boy, even ate some freekeh soup and chicken and loved it.


I made mloukhieh, both coarse and fine, grilled chicken and freekeh soup. So yummy with pickles and peppers on the side.

Old Fashioned Chicken and Potatoes.


Hello everybody.

Back to an old dish today, been a while since I made it.

Chicken with potatoes, of course with some onions and a bit of garlic. I even fried the potato cubes like old times.

Made some coarse mloukhieh on the side since I have chicken broth,yummy with fresh lemon juice and hot pepper.

Fried Courgette Flowers.

Hello everybody.

Lunch today was mloukhieh from yesterday, fresh from the farm and so yummy with garlic and lemons.

Alongside with it I made these cute fresh courgette flowers that u couldn’t resist not bring cause they were so intact, a waste to throw them away.

Stuffed with cheddar and Parmesan cheese, garlic and oregano then dipped in an egg,milk, flour batter with a pinch of salt and baking powder.

So crunchy and tasty, I even took some for the guy working at grocery store cause he can’t believe or imagine that these can be cooked.

طريقه وردات الكوسا:

تحشى الوردات بمزيج من الاجبان الصفراء مع ثوم واعشاب.

يحمى زيت القلي جيدا ثم تغمس كل قطعه بمزيج متجانس عباره عن كوب طحين, 2 بيض, , نصف ملعقه ملح ونصف باكينغ باودر ويضاف حليب بالتدريج حتى يصبح القوام سلس .

ثقلى بالزيت الغزير لمده 5 دقائق.

Artichoke with Dip and Mloukhieh.

Hello everybody.

What a long Saturday !

Went grocery shopping as usual,found these lovely fresh artichokes and bought a couple to try them, first time I buy them like this I usually get them frozen or canned. Even the man working at the grocery shop asked me:” what are going to do with these? ” told him I really have no idea.

Well after a quick search I combined many recipes together and came out with this easy conclusion, boiled the artichokes with lemon slices,clove of garlic and some bay leaves then made a dip which is a mix of yogurt,lemon juice,balsamic vinegar,mayonnaise and some salt. Really yummy and great as appetizer before dinner or if you have a gathering,it’s also a healthy substitute to chips or crackers.

Lunch was coarse mloukhieh (ملوخيه ورق) ,as a friend told me this morning make mloukhieh it’s the lazy lady’s choice , well I’m not lazy but needed the quickest choice I assure you.





Welcome Home Lunch.
