Manakeesh bil Za’atar (Za’atar Flatbread/Manoushe)

I realise it’s been a minute since I last posted so I’m bringing you my second most favorite Middle Eastern treat to make up for it: Manakeesh bil Za’atar or Flatbread with Za’atar! It’s also called Man’oushe.

Flatbread with Za'atar is soft & golden, the tantalising scent of za'atar herby & seductive. It's flavorful, fresh & gives you that perfect zing of herbs paired with olive oil.

Red Pepper Pesto Tagliatelle with Mushrooms

Happy World Pasta Day! I’ve got a beautiful, flavor packed pasta that’s got my Roasted Red Pepper Pesto singing delightful notes of its sweet smokiness paired with fresh cherry tomatoes, chilli garlic mushrooms and fresh basil just waiting to transport your taste buds into pasta filled heaven. But before we get onto that, I’ve got a question..

Today was one of those walking leisurely hand-in-hand kinda days, ending with a good hour spent at a bookstore, so I’d say the best way to end it would be with some delicious pasta and a romantic setting.

Since I’m going to have to forego making this flavorful pasta for hubs and me since we’re still out of town, I’m going to ask you to put it together for us.

Make it, enjoy it and have a couple bites for us!

Blueberry Almond Pie

Hello my fabulous foodies! Today’s recipe is a dreamy Blueberry Almond Pie but before we get into that..

Don’t you just love surprises?

I know I do! I might love guessing them as much as being completely taken by surprise, which makes it really difficult for my husband to actually surprise me. Not that I feel entirely too bad about it ’cause that just gives him a challenge to be more creative! (Just kidding!) 

He has, however, gotten really good at them- caught me by surprise twice this year- which really is something!

I am at the moment sitting far, far from home because of his second surprise and totally loving it!

Which brings me to the beautiful blueberry pie recipe I wanna share with you guys- it perfectly suits the crisp weather and beautiful Swiss city I’m falling in love with!

A sweet berrylicious treat wrapped up in a flaky pastry that's even better than anything you could pick up at a bakery since you've made it from scratch at home!

Easy as Pie- Pie Dough

It’s finally pie season! I have been waiting for this for months and the funniest thing is, I’ve been ready with a recipe for a while now, but between not being in one place and not having access to any seasonal fruit, it’s been hard! But finally, here is my recipe with full proof formulas for making the perfect pie dough! Continue reading “Easy as Pie- Pie Dough”

Spiced Chocolate Milkshake

It’s hot and the air is heavy with rain that won’t fall. When I pulled back the curtains a couple mornings ago, I was super excited as the sky was gloomy and it looked just about ready to pour. We all anticipated it, but it didn’t rain that day. It was just hot and heavy and my long list of blog prep just flew outta my head and I was not able to grasp a single thing that day and wasted it away flipping through recipes and saying, ‘Oh, I could make this, or this, or this!’

Suffice to say I didn’t make either this, this or this and instead settled on accepting the fact that the day was lost. There’s nothing I hate more then a day wasted. Seriously. Whether I’m the one who’s lost track of time or someone has messed up already set plans, a wasted day just rubs me the wrong way. (That kinda rhymes doesn’t it?)

Saffron & White Truffle Tagliatelle

Hey, everyone!

Little Miracle’s turns one today!

You can’t see me but I’m doing a crazy dance all day. Or just jumping around, cheering- same thing!

One year of food fun and I’ve got to thank you all for it!

So thank you, for the support, the feedback, the questions and the inspiration from my followers.

For every unfollow and every indifferent browse right past my feed, thank you especially, you push me to do better everyday.

And how could I forget to thank my two brothers who taste and polish off everything as long as it contains no fruit? I’d have tons of leftovers and be hundreds of pounds heavier if not for you guys!

Honey Coconut Granola with Sliced Almonds

Hey, all!

This is Little Miracles’ 50th post! And in keeping with this year’s healthy resolution, this granola is perfectly apt to celebrate!

How was your weekend?

It barely felt like a weekend for me. It’s hard to relax when you’ve pushed yourself to an edge back to back through a busy week. I pretty much crashed every night to wake up exhausted the next morning. Finally got me some good sleep last night!

My week was long, exhausting and at the same time extremely short. Contradicting, I know, but it was the second wedding of the month and it was huge. About 8 events over the span of 5 days and since hubby and I were representing both the bride (my cousin) and groom’s (best friend’s brother) side, we were absolutely and thoroughly exhausted yesterday when it all came to an end!

I’d love nothing more then to spend a couple days by the beach, with very little phone service and the least amount of people required to detox. As much fun as weddings are, made even better with seeing friends everyday, you really need to get away and detox sometimes. Just so you can hear yourself think.
