Thank God It’s Friday: Quick, Easy, And Yummy… 

  

Sometimes all you need is a day with your oldest, dearest friend and your beautiful, loving aunt and her cheerful, easy-going daughter! Reminiscing about your wedding day five years ago, and talking about how fast life goes by and how beautiful it all is! So Thankful for these beautiful people with whom I share a very special bond. You know…. those people who are very close to your heart, and who have been there for you in every stage of this life! People whom you talk to about 4 or 5 times a day or maybe days and days go by without hearing from them, yet once you see them you pick up right from where you left! 

So yes… My day was just what I needed! Fresh, full of love ….. And food! Yup foooooood! Talking about food, today I will be sharing a dessert recipe, a delicious and super easy to make dessert! Here is what you will need: 

15g Butter 

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

4 Bananas (peeled and cut into 3 pieces)

100ml double cream 

In a pan, put the butter (over medium heat), once it starts melting add the sugar. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bananas, cook for another 1 minute. Then add the cream and stir! Voila…!! 

Try it and let me know… !!!

Thank God It’s Friday! What’s For Sohour?! 

  

Ramadan is here! A holy month for all Muslims around the world! It is also a busy month (you probably have noticed that I haven’t posted a thing since last Friday lol). We fast from sunrise to sunset, and we break our fast with our family, friends and loved ones, in a beautiful, warm and very peaceful atmosphere. 

Just before sunrise, we eat a meal called “Sohour” and that would be the last meal until the following sunset, when we will break our fast, so we need it to be filling without being “too much” and my “Sticky Chocolate Coconut Squares” are just what we need! With a cup of milk and you’re set to go! Here, I will share the recipe with you all! 
1/2 Cup raw chocolate powder 

3/4 Cup dried coconut shredded and unsweetened 

1/2 Cup cashews or almonds (or both) 

A pinch of sea-salt

1/2 Cup honey 
Put the chocolate, coconut, cashews, and sea-salt in a food processor and blend until crumbly. Add the honey and process until it clumps together, almost like a dough. Press the mixture into a baking dish then cut into squares and you are done! 

Bon Appetit

Thank God It’s Friday: Meet Theeee “BAGHRIR” !! 

  

  Hello Friday! 

My Fridays in Morocco are counted, and with each post of “Thank God It’s Friday” i write, i reluctantly say goodbye, to yet another week of unconditionnal love and family pleasures! And there aren’t many left! This leaves me a little heavyhearted. Knowing that i will soon have to start packing again, to leave the house that was once considered my home, is such a bummer! On a much happier note though, today’s recipe, is one of the many delicacies i enjoy when in Morocco! It is always made by my mom, and today she is sharing her recipe with all of us! 
Pancakes are well known wherever you go, and today we -my mom & I- will show you, how to make the Moroccan version of pancakes :)! It is called “BAGHRIR” and usually served with melted honey and butter! With some tea! And get ready to be floating on air, yum yum! 
You will need the following: 
500g semolina 

A pinch of Salt 
1 teaspoon sugar 
2 teaspoons of baking powder 
1 teaspoon of yeast mixed with half cup warm water.
4 cups of water
Put all in a blender, blend, let it rest for 5 minutes, and cook as you would cook pancakes! How easy is that!! 
I hope you enjoy our version of the pancakes! And see you soon!

Thank God It’s Friday : What’s For Dessert? 

  

Hello everyone! How was your Friday? 

Mine was the definition of a blessed Friday! A summery bright day, spent with my parents, my sister and her family! My Uncle and Aunt, my cousins and their families! It was pure delight and pleasure! 
Since i came to Morocco, I am willingly letting my self sink into this country’s wonderful flavours! And more specifically my mom’s succulent cuisine! It is the kind of food i dream about throughout the year, yet i am always too lazy/tired to make myself! I also have a sister whose hobby is baking! In other words: Me and everyone else in seventh heaven lol! Today she decided to share one of her favourite recipes with us! Marble Cake! (Yum Yum). So cake lovers may i have your attention please! 
You will need the following:
4 eggs

1 cup sugar 
1 cup oil
1 cup milk 
1 tablespoon baking powder
250g flour
1 lemon (we will only use its zest)
2 table spoons cocoa powder.
Mix the flour, the sugar and the baking powder together, add the eggs, oil, milk and the lemon zest. Mix all together, take a cup of this batter aside, mix it with the cocoa powder. Meanwhile butter the pan and poor the rest of the batter in it. Take the cup you put aside (with the batter and cocoa powder), and sprinkle the liquid into the pan, then bake in the oven, over 180 degrees, for 40 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out dry! 
Bon Appetit!!
