These are my ”go to” way to use up sourdough discard! They are crisp and slightly tangy, perfect with some feta cheese, with soup or simply as a little pick me up snack when you are in the mood for something savoury and crunchy.
Did the quarantine and lockdown revive any of your old hobbies or inspire you to take up new ones?
For me, baking has been my therapy throughout those dark times. I am back to drawing and I am reading more than ever but the most comforting activity has been baking,
It all started with Pita bread and manakeesh when the lock down closed all the bakeries, then came zaatar rolls, and even sourdough after years of not having an active starter, it took a pandemic and a quarantine to get back into it lol (our baby starter is called Link because my son is playing Zelda Breath of the wild).
For today, I am sharing the breakfast recipe my kids demand the most! Zaatar rolls!
These dried figs and walnuts orange scented bars are one of my “aromatherapy recipes”!
You know, the recipes that fill the house with a cloud of aromas and spice and everything nice!
This is the fourth post in my series featuring Palestinian ingredients. I am sorry it is two days […]
Soft and fluffy rolls filled with a blend of zaatar and nutty olive oil. They are perfect for breakfast, lunchboxes or as a side kick for your favorite soup or salad

Pastries have their special place on the Ramadan iftar table. I personally don’t make them frequently in ramadan […]
Last month when I shared the final Daring kitchen challenge, I told you that I was planning on taking on the challenges that I missed or the ones that had happened before I joined the daring kitchen. Once a month, I will make one of the old challenge recipes and post it on the 27th of the month for old times sake (because the 27th was our assigned reveal date when the daring kitchen was active)
If you’d like to join me on this daring adventure, leave me a comment or email me and we can agree on next month’s challenge 🙂 You don’t have to be a blogger or have a blog. You just need to be daring and into trying something new 🙂
As you already know from the title, I chose to make lavash crackers (Sep 2008 challenge). I am addicted to lavash crackers especially the rosemary and sea salt ones and the cinnamon sugar and spice ones. I always buy them whenever I find them (usually at the farmer’s market and sometimes at IKEA). They are always super expensive, especially considering the fact that the ingredients that go into them are so cheap and readily available.
Whenever I buy lavash crackers, I promise myself to find a great recipe and start making these at home but I never seemed to find the time to do it, until this month! When I went through the extensive Daring kitchen archive to pick a recipe, I came across the lavash crackers challenge and knew that THIS IS THE ONE!
The December 2016 Daring kitchen challenge was to make Dutch Oliebollen (commonly called Dutch Donuts). Traditionally, these little sugar dusted apple and raisin studded spheres of bliss are eaten throughout the winter months in the Netherlands but particularly on new year’s eve.
I have missed so many daring kitchen challenges this year. I was determined not to miss this final challenge! But more importantly, a very dear friend of mine is from the Netherlands. When I saw the title of this challenge I just knew I had to make it, for her, so Margret if you are reading this, this post goes out to you.
Growing up,the only association between pumpkins and desserts for me was in the form of the traditional candied pumpkin that is usually served in the winter as a filling for a special kind of Palestinian bread called zalabia. You see, pumpkin in my book was associated with savory recipes like pumpkins and lentils in tomato sauce,and pumpkin frittata.It wasn’t until I started blogging that I was blown away by all the sweet possibilities!
When I first started blogging (and even to this day) I occasionally got the comment: Oh you can’t […]
