Chocolate Snowball Cookies – Chocolate Ghraybeh

A couple weeks ago, I shared my snowball cookie recipe which is derived from my ghraybeh cookie dough. I knew I had to make a chocolate version as well so I switched a few things around to make these decadent, melt-in-your-mouth cookies in chocolate! Simple ingredients and less than an hour is all you really…

Baklava Cinnamon Rolls

We all love a warm tray of freshly baked cinnamon rolls with warm glaze on top. Likewise, who doesn’t love a warm tray of baklava, freshly drizzled with attar (simple syrup). This recipe combines the two for an explosion of texture and flavor – the BEST of both worlds. The filo dough in traditional baklava…

Classic Bread Stuffing

Traditional bread stuffing is pretty essential for any holiday table, especially Thanksgiving. My aunt is usually the one who would make this for or holiday spread, so I’m sharing how she would make it. I love adding plenty of veggies to mine and just enough broth to not make it soggy, but of course you…

Snowball Cookies!

These cookies are so easy and so spectacular! The melty texture is so impressive and irresistible. I use the same base ratio for these as I do for my ghraybeh cookies which I have a recipe for, but there are a few major differences that make them into what they are. Give these a try…

Risotto is one of those things that can satisfy everyone. From vegan or vegetarian, seafood to meat, you can do just about anything with it. I’ve shared a mushroom truffle oil risotto here quite some time ago, but I wanted to share one of my favorite fall versions – a butternut squash risotto. It comes…

Simple Apple Cake (My Tete’s Recipe)

This is a cake that my Tete (grandmother) would make often because they always had a fruitful apple tree among many other plants and trees in her garden. This cake reminds me of her and my late Sido (grandfather) so I’m very happy to share it with you! This is different from a traditional American…

Mushroom Wild Rice Soup

                I’ve mentioned countless times that my daughter and I can both eat soups year round, which makes me EXTRA excited that its officially soup season this year! I love adding wild rice to soups for that nutty bite and texture that adds something really special to something already so delicious and comforting. You can…

Biscoff Cookie Butter Crinkle Cookies

                I am a chocolate lover through and through, but there are days when only cookie butter will cut it. My husband is the biscoff lover in our house and as I was testing this recipe, let’s just say he did not oppose to the trays and trays of cookies that were made over the…
