    apricot hazelnut tart

    i have never though mixing hazelnut with apricot will turn out this good till i read an article  ( link ) about how apricots has a nutty flavor, so i decided to try this tart recipe from Bake from Scratch, the result was really good, one thing i had to change, used less apricots and since i’m not a big fan of ice-cream so i didnt serve my tart with i,t just cooled with my evening coffee. as any tart recipe we start with processing dry ingredients but since there is hazelnut in this recipe , we start with processing it with sugar till it becomes smooth then the rest…

    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…

    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…

    Magrood

    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…
