    Apple Cinnamon Cake

    Right when the weather starts to cool down, cinnamon jumps into my head and of course since its autumn i have to use Apples, i just cant resist those shiny green apples at the market, i have to buy them and bake with them i just HAVE to !. this is an ideal cake for chill days, goes perfectly with a cup of warm coffee, moist and rich with cinnamon, the perfect combination you need to enjoy the flavor of a strong coffee.     this cake has a very thick batter not like other cakes, that will turn into super moist later after it bakes, i think because of…

    Salted Caramel Thumbnail Cookies

    salted caramel, i have been seeing it in so many bloggers recipes, cakes, tarts, cookies and you name it but i have to admit this is the first recipe for me to use it, the combination between the sugar in caramel and salt flakes is surprisingly delicious, like seriously the salt is doing that kick for all the flavors to pop, its sweet and salty at the same time with vanilla flavor, just soo worth it. so basically it’s thumbnail cookie style, and as usual best way to get all cookies same size is by using ice-cream scooper, specially that i decided to make these cookies a bit bigger than…

    Lemon Tart

    its took me a while to start making my tart crust perfectly from the first time, i remember i used get pissed off and just add an egg to hold everything up but that for sure will lead to not so crunchy crust, so the key was KEEP PRACTICING Lubna you will get there lol. this recipe was adopted from one of the food blogs i follow then i had to change a little in it,so its between a tart crust and a shortbread,  one major thing you have to put in mind while making a pie or a tart, use cold ingredients, if its too sticky DO NOT add…

    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…

    Ftera

    I’m not really sure if this recipe is 100% Libyan but its a tradition to make for the first day of Eid, its the typical breakfast after 30 days of fasting usually people like with honey along with their tea or coffee but for me i just love it with cheese and i may add honey but the cream cheese has to be there lol all you need to make this recipe a successes is a very good quality flour, high in gluten flour will allow the dough stretch to a very thin layer which is the secret to have it light like thin papers. this is how the dough…
