Baked Vanilla Doughnuts

December 15, 2016

Hola! I’ve been chaotically busy this month, so i kind of slacked on writing a new blog post…

So many exciting things have been happening with Mrs.Clueless and I am so very thankful for everyone’s constant love and support! Not only has my knowledge in the kitchen improved, but I get to meet amazing people everyday that share the same passion that i have.

So, to get to the point here. WHO DOES NOT LOVE DOUGHNUTS?

Well, me. I hate fried doughnuts, they always make me feel sick to my stomach. Also, I failed at making fried doughnuts once because i have no patience whatsoever. So i decided to venture into making baked ones.

I can’t describe how good they taste, and how light and fluffy they are!

Scroll down for the recipe!

My Thanksgiving Recipes

November 21, 2016

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!

Traditional Pecan Pie

November 13, 2016

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.

Beetroot Hummus and Zaatar Breadsticks//My Snapchat Takeover on The Feed Feed

June 14, 2016

I got the chance to takeover The Feed Feed‘s Snapchat yesterday and i have to say it was a BLAST! I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce some Lebanese culture into my takeover so i set up an outdoor kitchen in our family home in the Lebanese countryside and used lebanese pottery to put all my ingredients in, some arabic music in the background, and i made HUMMUS.

Well, i didn’t just make hummus, i made beetroot hummus and Zaatar bread sticks to go with it!

Will share with you the recipe for both Hummus and Breadsticks! Continue Reading
