Apple crisp

This is a delicious, straight forward dessert, which is a cross between a cake and an apple crumble. So quick yet so delicious!

Adas mtabal (green lentil breakfast)

For many, the sound of lentils at breakfast may be a little bit weird, but this is a nutricious Lebanese breakfast, which is guaranteed to keep you full for long. It is super delicious and quick to make. If you have already cooked a big batch of green lentils, you can place handfuls in containers/food bags and store them in the fridge/freezer, ready for use when needed. If you do this, making adas mtabal is super super quick.

Mdardra (green lentil rice with caramelised onions)

I really didn't know what to cook today, so asked my sisters for suggestions. One request was mdardra, a Lebanese dish made of rice, mixed with green lentils and topped with tasty caramelised onions. The ingredients are simple, yet the taste is spot on!!!

Beef stir fry

Out of all things to eat on the weekend, I really felt like noodles! Seeing as I have already made chicken noodles: http://www.nosaibasfood.com/search?q=noodles I decided to make beef noodles, or a beef stir fry...

Fruit pavlova

I have always wanted to make pavlova - so I decided to make portion sized pavlovas - which are less messy when it comes to serving. It really is so simple, and something you can make in advance ready to serve as a dessert whenever needed.

Mozzarella chicken escalope

I wanted to make something easy yet tasty for dinner, yet I did not have any breadcrumbs for the chicken escalope...so I made my own breadcrumbs by breaking apart two pieces of bread. So you can always be imaginative and creative, and end up with a delicious meal inshAllah :) (although using ready made breadcrumbs meant the final look wasn't as professional looking)

Aubergine curry

We had a few aubergines to use up - so I thought why not make an aubergine curry for dinner! My dad loved it, which means it must have been good alhamdulilah :D lol

Arctic roll

The weather is getting warmer, and my father asked me what's for dessert? lol. So I thought why not an arctic roll, something suitable for this weather, fast to make and absolutely delicious!!

Yakhnet al basal (Lebanese onion stew)

This is one of my favourite Lebanese dishes - in fact it is one of my favourite dishes in general! I reallllly felt like some, so I asked my mum how she makes it, and decided to give it a go. It is really easy, super delicious and tangy!
