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.
If you guys follow me on Instagram you probably would have realised that I have been obsessively cooking with PUMPKINS. Pies, cookies, truffles,bedtime drinks, you name it I’ve done it this month!
This week was one of the most chaotic weeks of my LIFE. I had so many projects and so many recipes to deliver in such a SHORT timeframe. But i did it! Didn’t think i’d be able to complete all these tasks but i did!! And i’m SO PROUD of myself 😀
Won’t be able to share with you what i did until the end of the month!
On another note, my aunt has an awesome stuffed pumpkin recipe, and i’ve always been intimidated to try it out. So after i finished from all my project shoots I decided to stuff my little pumpkin 🙂
My first tart, ever!! I was at the grocery store where I buy all my vegetables and fruits and was really intrigued by the imported zucchinis. One was yellow and the other green. So, of course, being a hoarder, i decided to buy one of each.
Came back home and googled some recipes. Found this recipe for a delicious, and I really mean DELICIOUS, restaurant quality, tart.
When I think about comfort food, it’s never lasagna, or pizza, or a burger. These are my indulgence meals. Comfort food to me is home cooked Lebanese food, whether it be stews (Yakhnat) or stews in oil (Bi Zeit), i absolutely LOVE them and can live on them. They are super healthy and nutritious!
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.
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
What do you do when you have 10 artichokes in the fridge? You check up on them every morning just to make sure they haven’t gone moldy, and then you close the fridge hoping tomorrow they are still in the same condition because you have NO IDEA what to do with them.
Well, after extensive researching and asking everyone on Instagram what to do with them i found the following AWESOME, and super easy recipe!
