Peanut Butter Cookies In Brownies.


Hello everybody.

We had a small lunch gathering today,my hubby made sheep pluck a meal not all favor so another dish was a must, made chicken fatteh was the option.


For dessert I searched for a new chocolate recipe cause I know it’s a favorite for my boys and niece. Came across this easy two in one kind of thing.
Peanut butter cookies dough scooped into brownie dough then baked all together, end result was really delicious. Actually not a bite left.

*1/2 cup sugar.
* 1 egg.
* 1 cup flour.
*1/4 cup creamy peanut butter.

* Make the cookie dough, beat oil with sugar then add all other ingredients till you get a firm ball.
* divide cookie dough to equally sized balls then dip them into the brownie batter.

Fried Veggies Salad.

Hello everybody.

My husband cooked today for a change, his favorites sheep pluck and fried tomatoes.

For those who doesn’t eat it ( only me)  I did a salad rich and fulfilling. Normal salad with cubed fried veggies like eggplants, courgettes, potatoes and cauliflowers with tahini sauce on top.

Stuffed Spleen.(طحالات محشيه)

Hello everybody.

Sad day for me and my friends cause we lost this morning a very dear and loving uncle,unique character, generous,caring,knowledgeable and who always welcomed us all with a big smile,kind heart and open house anytime since we were in school till his last days on this earth. May your soul rest in peace 3mmo Abu Mustafa and may God give his dear family patience,you’ll always be in our hearts.

Lunch today was not my specialty as I mentioned once before,actually my husband’s kind of food,sheep pluck cooked in olive oil and stuffed spleen.

Sorry I couldn’t take lots of photos of cooking steps.Spleens are first washed well,boiled a bit to be tender and all blood goes out then stuffed with garlic,coriander,pine nuts,salt and pepper .

Bake spleens after brushing with olive oil in a medium heated oven for 40_50 minutes.







Sheep Pluck (معلاق خاروف)

Hello everybody.

I know many didn’t understand my title,both English and Arabic.

Well sheep pluck means liver,kidneys,heart and lungs of sheep, personally I never tasted or cooked it ,it’s my hubby”s specialty ,many people consider it a fancy meal,mostly done in Eid Al-Adha where sheep parts are abundant and fresh or you can ask your butcher to keep them for you,we usually bring them cut and ready to cook.

Today I invited my sister in law and her husband,who usually dig in with my husband,it’s a favorite of both. Of course I made extra things to go along with it and for me to eat :)

I made french fries,aubergines and fatoush and my mother in -law made mloukhieh with minced meat. It was a lovely Saturday lunch,followed by the sweetest most delicious melon ever.


Ingredients and method:

* cut,cleaned pluck.

*2-3 big coarsely chopped onions.

* 1 hot pepper.

* salt,pepper and bay leaves.

* olive oil.

*saute onions and pepper in olive oil till tender then add meat parts.

* keep stirring till color is changes to brown,then lower heat and leave to simmer for 1 hour,keep stirring it every 10-15 min,


I know it might be a strange dish but everybody who eat it say it’s very good,a delicacy even :)
