Sesame Bread

Recently, I went for Umrah with my family. It always is an amazing spiritual journey. Our first stop was Madina. While walking to the mosque from our hotel, we would see different kinds of shops, most of which are restaurants and baqalas (sort of small supermarkets or general stores). While the eateries mostly cater to … Continue reading Sesame Bread

Lamb Sausage Katmer with Labneh

I have recently fallen in love with a new cookbook Soframiz: Vibrant Middle Eastern Recipes from Sofra Bakery and Cafe. It is all about Middle Eastern food, and I am a huge fan. If I had to pick one cuisine, I would pick Middle Eastern cuisine any day. It is light, it isn't too spicy and … Continue reading Lamb Sausage Katmer with Labneh

I find it hard to make Italian recipes because of their use of various kinds of cheese.Most of them aren't easily available … Continue reading Tiramisu

I have been neglecting blogging with work. Now that I have completed almost five years at my workplace, I am one of the senior staff who are consulted in various decision making.

This year, again, I looked for an orange cake recipe, and … Continue reading Rich Orange Cake

Any menu lacking flatbread or roti is not fulfilling enough. Traditional roti made on a tawa does not pair well with Greek menu, hence … Continue reading Pita Bread

Greek Tomato Pie

Suddenly I am finding myself too busy to post my whole Mediterranean lunch series quickly. Mediterranean food is absolutely tasty, colorful and inviting. Most of these recipes call for the most basic spices, easily available in the market. They aren't too hot nor to bland. The salt is usually the star and flavor enhancer while … Continue reading Greek Tomato Pie

Peanut Butter Cookies

The other day I was going through my recipe collection, and I noticed I mostly note down cakes and the likes. I have so few savory dishes written down, that if I had the responsibility to feed my family on a daily basis, all they would eat would be cakes, brownies and cookies with an … Continue reading Peanut Butter Cookies
