Chicken maqlooba (upside down rice)

Maqlooba is the arabic word for upside down :) The reason you will soon find out...
A lot of frying goes on in this recipe, so have to admit, isn't the healthiest of meals, but it sure is tasty!!

Blueberry and lemon muffins

Some things just attract your attention, they sound good, they look good...and ultimately, they taste good! That is the case with blueberry muffins, except this recipe has an added twist, something I really like, lemon!

Cranberry brioche

This recipe is not for the faint hearted, lol. Its not difficult in the sense you have to stand long hours making it, but it has some technical aspects that are not simple, and it also requires a lot of patience (you will see what I mean below). For this reason, I will introduce alongside the prep time and baking time what I believe is the skill level of the recipe, for your guidance.

Chicken kabsa

I have tried making kabsa before, so I kept and removed ingredients that worked/did not work. For example, a previous kabsa I have made required orange rind, which I did not like in the kabsa. Please let me know if this recipe is authentic enough, or if there are any changes I should make.

Apple turnovers

The sound of apples, cinnamon  and puff pastry is very appealing, so apple turnovers was definitely something I wanted to try out.
