    cheddar flat bread

    being a libyan means i have to have bread every single day, its the usual normal thing to have breads as part of each lunch and dinner, for me i dont care what type of bread it is as long as it goes perfectly with the meal, i will always welcome those lovely YUM carbs :). as the everyday struggle starts of what to make for lunch i was really craving some cheesy bread but more like the ftera style, i didnt want it to feel like a real bread but more like something light and flaky, so i was like ok why not mixing both ? and by that…

    2018 favorites

    When 2018 started I was closing my company Mezian because of few reasons and I had no idea what am I going to do next, I have decided its about time to start blogging, I was not sure how will this work but I believed I will find the way after I start, so I just started ( thanks GooGle for answering all my Qs ) and I must say it is NOT as easy and simple as it looks like, there is a lot of work behind each post, recipe creating/testing/styling/ photographing and even after writing there is post editing, not to mention all the marketing work ( which…

    Basil Garlic Focaccia

    lately i started using a starter for this recipe coz i noticed the result is way much better, one of the things i noticed is dough rises faster and better, it becomes real fluffy and full of air. even though focaccia is one of the easiest simplest breads out there to make yet for me i think it needs kneading skills, i do use my stand mixer with the kneading hook but still i knead it by hand for like 5 minutes to allow the gluten to develop, and like any other type of breads the more you knead the better this dough has 3 resting periods, one of them…

    Labneh Cheese

    beside all types of fancy breakfasts, my favorite would be a typical Arabic one, a huge plate of tomatoes, olives, cheese and tea with mint along with freshly baked bread, HEAVEN! i have always been amazed by how they make labneh, those small white cheese balls look so elegant and fancy, so i started making it at home using Libya’s local excellent olive oil to add extra flavor, then i play with what so ever i have in hand to coat those little balls and make them more special. i do enjoy playing with flavors when it comes to labneh cheese , this time i picked smocked tunisian peppers i…
