    Orange Jam

    i grew up in a house full of home made jams, my mother used to make  jams of each season fruit, and to be honest i never liked Orange jam, i used to find it too bitter, lately i started to really enjoy it, only when i realized that bitterness can be controlled to adjust anyone's taste by the amount of orange peels you add to the jam. my recipe requires mixing 2 types of oranges which will lead to a very balanced taste, its not too sweet nor bitter plus it has a citrusy flavor. i took a picture the 2 types of oranges i used just to make…

    Dernawy Hasaa Mix

    when it comes to Libya, the kitchen is divided by east and west side, and its surprisingly different on so many levels, each side is influced by a different type of culture, Egyptian and Turkish for the east and Tunisian and Jewish for the west, mostly they have same types of dishes, serves same meals but they cook slightly different with some east and west special dishes. since i’m a mix of both sides ( eastern father and western mother ) i do both sides cooking, and i admit i have my own favorites from both! soups are 100% different, in the east side ( Darna city specifically ) they…
