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…
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…

I have always been amazed by how some people can make humms so smooth and creamy, till one day i saw a recipe online saying they add B.S while soaking the chickpeas! and true i tried it and it really made a difference!
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…
ever since i discovered this magically soft dough, i started playing with fillings, the dough is so soft and it welcomes any kind of filling you chose, just PERFECT! so away from all the meat we ( the Arabs ) love to use, i'm a big fan of feta cheese and i find it perfect with spinach, i think this is something Greek! but its just yumy in my tummy and so appetizing !!!!, specially the feta has that salty taste that makes me wanna eat more! these rolls are ideal for any occasions, i use them for brunch, side dish for lunch and they make perfect snack for picnics.
Peri Peri grilled chicken sandwiches
OK so to be honest i'm not a big fan of spicy food, so i make my peri peri sauce medium hot, its just i think when its too spicy or lets say too hot it kills the flavor, its more like a fire in my mouth and i taste NOTHING lol so anyways, i used the sauce to marinate the chicken, it became super tender, grilled it for like 3 minutes on each side and the taste was amazing, sour, hot and moist chicken. i have posted a recipe on my super easy flat bread, typical Arabic bread that i usually use as a quick solution for sandwiches or…
