    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…

    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…

    the KING! that is what i call this dessert, among all libyan sweets or desserts for me this is the best or let me say my all time favorite, Semolina, date with honey! its just magic for me especially that i’m a coffee addict so Magrood makes it extra luxury. there are sooo many ways to make Magrood but i must say the typical traditional way has no measurements, yes they keep adding this and that till they get to a dough that hold up in their hands in a certain way which is too difficult for me so i had to fix the measurements and come up with a…

    Libyan Ghraiba

    i think this type of sweets or desserts is well known in most Arab countries, most of them make Ghraiba but its different from country to another, ingredients and techniques are the reason behind this deference. its well known as an easy to make dessert yet so tricky to get it perfectly done, as for the Libyan Ghriaba is has to be a bit hard when you take a bite, melts in your mouth and the more it cracks while baking the better it is and your ghraiba is considered a success. for me i had to go through many recipes, yes yes the ingredients are way too simple but…

    Lancashire Cookies

    this is the kind of recipes that never lets you down, easy with simple ingredients and the result is delicate and elegant! i usually make these cookies for tea parties or even for my kids to play with, like they choose their favorite jam to stick the two cookies and cover them with sugar sprinkles then eat what they have made, its kindda mess but some how super fun :))) for the past 3 years i added it to my Eid sweets menu as it can be baked ahead of time and just finish the jam gluing part in the Eid morning.   Let them cool completely before you glue…

    date cake with meringue buttercream

    since its Ramadan, i have alot of Dates in my fridge, and to be honest i am getting bored of the typical ramadan desserts with alot of sugar syrup, Qishta and so on, so i was trying to come up with something new using dates but at the same time not the typical desserts. i have tried a recipe i found online for Sticky Date cake from this website ( clean eating ), it was nice and moist ( had to change few things in it ) then it hit me to make a change to it using maybe toffee!  and because i’m not a big fan of whipping cream…

    i am simply one of sooo many of you who used to go to the supermarket and buy those ready Cream Caramel we find near the yogurt section in the fridge, simply coz i have always thought making it is so complicated and NOT worth the effort!, till i decided to try it. before i come up with this recipe which i consider as a basic recipe for the Flan, i tried 6 other recipes and non of them was perfect, either too much liquid that it doesn’t hold up the shape or too solid, 2 of them got crumbly for GOD knows why !!!! so the conclusion out of…

    Gammar Edden Panna Cotta

    we all know its not Ramadan without Mhalabia as part of the desserts menu,we make it everyday then we get bored of it or at least this is what happens to me! i have Gammar edden drink in my fridge coz my mother-in-law consider it as a MUST on any Ramadan table lol so i was just thinking of making something similar to Mhalabia but not Mhalabia, Panna Cotta was the best choice then i thought of Gammar Edden as an Arabic touch to it and a ramadany flavor! its creamy and rich just like any typical Panna Cotta,  the flavor of the Gammar Edden made it completely different, something…
