Milk Pudding with Almonds ( مهلبيه باللوز).

Hello everybody.

My mother in -law invited some of her friends for an early dinner today, main dish will be Eggplant Maqloubeh as requested and I made roasted chicken which will be posted tomorrow.

My part is to make a kind of dessert , was a bit in a dilemma of what to do then the idea just came right to me when my best friend asked me to do a rice or milk pudding for her dear father’s birthday today so I made a big quantity for her and us.

After searching for a new different recipe I decided to do this one from Nestle website,really good and almonds gave it a lovely crunchy taste.


Ingredients and method:

* 1 can sweetened condensed milk.

* 1 liter water.

* 2 big spoons rice flour.( رز مطحون)

* 2 big spoons corn flour.

* 3/4 cup finely crushed almonds.

* 1 tsp cardamon.

* 1 tablespoon rose water.

* 1 tsp crushed gum mastic ( mistika مستكه)

* 4 tablespoons powdered milk.

* some crushed pistachios and cherries for decoration.


* Mix all ingredients except rose water and gum very well with a hand mixer till all are combined.

* Over a high heat keep mixing till it’s bubbly and thick.

* add gum and rose water.

* pour in serving dish or small cups.

* when cooled decorate with pistachios.

* cool in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

NOTE: if mixture wasn’t thick enough when boiled you can dissolve another tablespoon of corn flour and add it to ensure good consistency.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Hello everybody.

Lovely sunny day,hope all weekend stays like this,started with a lovely breakfast outside in the sun, new olives are done they’re absolutely delicious.

I was invited to a gathering noon time and just before I left I decided to bake some cookies to take with me,after searching  in my books for something quick I didn’t do before I found this super easy one,  I used Quality Street chocolates, simply crushed a bunch in the food processor instead of normal chocolate chips,this box has been on the coffee table since Adha Eid so I’d better use it rather than eat it alone,don’t you all love these chocolates? never bored of them!

Ingredients and method:

* 1/2 cup butter ( reduce it a bit if using heavy chocolates)

* 1/2 cup peanut butter.

* 3/4 cup brown sugar.

* 1 egg.

* 2 tablespoons milk.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 1/2 small spoon baking soda.

* 1/2 tsp baking powder.

* 1 3/4 cups flour.

* 3/4 cup chocolate chips or crushed ones of any kind.


* Mix butters and sugar well till creamy then add egg,vanilla,milk.

* add flour,baking soda and powder then last thing add the chocolates.

*Shape into balls then flatten them a bit,usually I use a coffee cup bottom.

* bake in a medium heated oven for 10-13 minutes or till bottoms are golden.

* cool then keep in cookie jar or tightly closed tin.

These will sure put a big smile on a child’s face specially with a hot chocolate in a cold day :)
