This is LEGIT the best dessert you can make. It is easy, takes literally less than 30 min to prepare, tastes like the REAL DEAL fancy tiramisu, but in fact, it has a little cheat to it 😀
I love preparing this dessert for when we have guests because not only does it taste amazing, if you layer it into a cake it looks fabulous too!

Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and lets be real, we don’t really celebrate it in Lebanon, like at all. Which is sad because who would miss a chance at a homemade Turkey? Like, why wait till its Christmas?!
This year, since I oddly enough turned into Mrs.Clueless, someone that would rather spend 3/4 of her day in the kitchen than do anything else, I decided to throw a Friendsgiving dinner a week before the actual holiday so that I can share with you some of my favourite Thanksgiving recipes.
I have to admit, the idea was thrilling at first but as the day got closer and the turkey was between my hands i panicked. Not because i never had cooked a bird thats bigger than my pet dog, but because i had SO MANY other dishes to make that accompany the Turkey.
Thanks to the extensive researching, I managed to pull it off quite well! So proud of myself *happy dance*.
Below i will be listing the turkey recipe that I made. I took the steps from various online platforms and added my own touch, as well as my apple pie and salad recipe.
The rest of the recipes you can find online!
When planning a Thanksgiving dinner, do NOT miss out on including a pecan pie.
I’ve had many pecan pies before but i had never actually made one of my own. And since this year i’ve been doing a lot of “first timers”, why not!
After researching a few recipes online, and figuring out who sells corn syrup in Beirut, i finally decided to try out Sally’s Baking Addiction’s Recipe. It really is such a simple recipe and tastes just like the one I used to have.
The crust of this pie is another story. Made with butter and shortening, this crust is buttery, flakey, and has the exact texture you would imagine a pecan pie to have.
Thanksgiving is in exactly 2 weeks , and if you don’t celebrate it (like everyone in Lebanon, because its an American holiday), well, you should, because you are MISSING OUT ON GOOD FOOD.
I will be sharing with you a bunch of Thanksgiving dinner recipes in the next 2 weeks!
So, I had a bunch of Pecans, and I couldn’t find any corn syrup (not easily available in Beirut) to make my first Pecan pie. Off to the internet and there it was, a beautiful chocolate chip pecan cookie. It looked SO GOOD.
Check out the following recipe and prepare to eat one of the best cookies ever.
Sorry I haven’t been posting much here but I have been SO BUSY with Mrs.Clueless, which is an amazing thing of course!
Yesterday I woke up feeling a bit under the weather so I decided to stay at home. Of course, I can not sit and do nothing so I ventured into giving a lemon poppy seed cake a try!
I adapted the recipe from The Cake Blog and shifted it around a bit!
I’ve always loved a good banana bread with chocolate chips! This time I decided to make a healthy version to have for breakfast with my coffee 🙂
Thankfully i had some super ripe bananas in my kitchen, so i looked for a recipe online and tweaked it a bit!
Check it out!
Back from our summer vacation, and back to fully focusing on Mrs.Clueless!
I had gotten a recipe book (Comfort Food) before we left for our vacation and I didn’t have the chance to try anything from it! So yesterday night while we were watching Narcos Season 2, which by the way is SO GOOD, i decided to open up the book and make something for dinner.
This roast caught my attention because, well, i have a chicken in my freezer, and it seemed moderately hard.
After spending the last few days experimenting with fondant, colours, and ugly cakes, i had the urge to make something simple, rustic, and just plain DELICIOUS. I have these amazing peaches which give off an intense aroma every time the fridge is opened so i decided to make a peachy dessert!
Lebanon’s summer comes with excess heat and humidity, and the fact that i ate the equivalent of my weight in NYC means I can’t just cool off with ice cream all the time :/
So, i decided to make my own popsicles! I substituted the sugar with honey but for a yummier taste just go for the sugar!
FINALLY on my blog again! Sorry for disappearing for two weeks but i was moving houses.
I’m finally settled into my new house and i am LOVING it!
I’m sharing with you today after lots of requests, my three layered chocolate cake recipe!
