Chocolate Coffee Pudding.

Hello everybody.

Saw this interesting recipe from Deema Hajjawi’s Instagram account thought I’d try it since I have fresh milk.

Taste is good like a chocolate mousse in a way,recipe is easy but I used fresh milk instead of powder.

Ingredients and method :
* 4 cups milk.
* 3-4 tablespoons starch.
* 1 cup chocolate chips.
* 2 packs creme caramel powder.
* 1 pack cream.
* 1 tablespoon Nescafe.
* Digestive biscuits.

# heat milk ( only 3 cups) till warm then add chocolate till it melts.
# dissolve the remaining cup of milk with the starch.
# add the cream caramel, cream and milk with starch to the milk chocolate mixture.
# add Nescafe.
# mix all well together over low heat till it’s thick.
# pour in small silicone cups or glass cups.
# cool in fridge for several hours.
# upon serving turn it on a digestive biscuit and serve decorated with chocolate syrup or nuts.

Stuffed Courgettes and Nescafe Croquant Cake.

Hello everybody.

Tonight we’re invited to a BBQ ,but I have to cook for the boys anyway,thought stuffed courgettes and pulp will be a good choice,they both love it !

I think this dish is a favorite in most Jordanian homes,you seldom find anyone who doesn’t like it, I usually stuff eggplants also but not today,I usually cook the pulp with it,everybody loves it, my youngest sometimes hides the remaining amount in the fridge for dinner or the next day.

I also made my traditional Nescafe croquant cake to take with me for our hostess at night.

Lentils ( mujadara)

Hello everybody.

Lots of events going on today,I went out to breakfast with my lovely friends to celebrate dear Wafa’s birthday, early this morning I baked another Nescafe Cake, I think this one will be my trademark from now on,with the same ornament and flowers. Everybody enjoyed it and was a delightful surprise.

Back home I got the nicest present from my lovely niece Layan,a box of mixed herbs from Istanbul, thank you dear :)

At lunch time plans changed a bit,I’ve  already cooked some lentils before I left ,thought I’ll make one of Mary’s recipes from her lovely book “On Healthy Cooking” but then discovered I don’t have all ingredients available,so ended up making mjadara with fried onions and some salad.

here are links for today’s recipes;
