My Interview About Family Family Flavors Magazine.

Hello again.

Yesterday morning I was interviewed in Roya TV during the morning show Dunya Ya Dunya to talk about my monthly posts in Family Flavors magazine.

Can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I started my monthly menu planner and recipes pages and my column in healthy and happy segment.

A very nice informative interview with two lovely TV anchors.

Chicken with Chili Coriander Garlic Sauce.


Hello everybody.

This morning I realized that I haven’t cooked in a week now, loved the break but guess it’s time to make a good fulfilling dish today.

Happens that I have some cute baby chicken I bought from Centro Stores that I think would be perfect with the sauce I saw Chef Deema Hijjawi make yesterday in the morning show, she did it with chicken breasts though.

Ingredients of sauce:


  • 1 big chopped onion.
  • 3 cloves garlic.
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander.
  • 1 tsp of cumin,coriander,chili,salt,pepper and all spice.
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste.
  • 1 cup yogurt.
  • some olive oil.
  • Blend all these in food processor then rub all over and inside chicken.
  • bake for 1 1/2 hour in low heat uncovered then roast till golden.
  • Serve with roasted potatoes or rice.

Roya TV Interview.

BIG day yesterday,I think I’ll mark it as a turning point or new start for something different,not sure what it’ll be but I was really happy and very emotional from the huge amount of loving and cheering comments specially from my family and friends, my dearest friends took me out to celebrate my, as everybody assured me, first TV interview.

I was interviewed on Donya Ya donya morning show/ Roya TV ,talked about my blog, how it started and grew and about my future plans. Had to admit I was very nervous at first but it all went smoothly and the beautiful anchor was very nice and natural.

Thank you again to all family members,friends,followers and members of group banancooking for your support.

Well all this doesn’t mean I didn’t cook,my son just arrived from Berlin after a month absence and of course cooked his most favorite dish stuffed courgettes,made some stuffed vine leaves and string beans in olive oil .
