Crepe Suzette

I finally got the time to get together with the ladies this morning. It was a wonderful gathering and just great catching up with the girls :) The best thing about these get togethers is that you get to see the inner greatness in all of these wonderful women who would stop at nothing to support their families, loved ones and children. You get to hear the great things that they silently do each and every day to provide the best in their homes without the slightest bit of expectation for…

Healthy can be good too! When it comes to adopting healthy life styles, breakfast is the first step. We all know how important breakfast is. We have been exhaustingly hearing this message.

Blueberry Pancakes

Blueberries are sensational! Add them to pancakes and what can be better? In the streets of Juffeir in Bahrain there is a little diner/pub called Ric's Country Kitchen. When I was living there, I used to wait for Fridays to break off work and kick start the weekend with their to-die-for breakfast. The place would be buzzing with people, and at times you really had to wait in line. But all worth the wait! Treat your family to an occasional Ric's Country Kitchen at home! The menu is a straight…

Serves 8 | Medium to hard I have been invited by Kari Heron from 'Chef and Steward' to join her "Fresh Mystery Basket" challenge in which I am supposed to use fresh produce in making a spontaneous, new and challenging eats. How exciting is that?! In an attempt to be spontaneous, I have gone to shop without a plan in mind, and started with fresh herbs.

Delicious Plain Pancakes with Whipped Cream Cheese, Kiwi Salsa & Kiwi Bonbons

Dima Sharif

About a month ago, Chef and Steward had announced a Fresh Basket Challenge in which participants had to go grocery shopping without a list or a recipe in mind, and go according to what they find in the supermarket.

The first day I went for savoury: Mediterranean Focaccia Bread with Fresh Halloumi, and for…
