All started with me catching a throat infection, which obviously then turned into a fever. As soon as I started getting better, our grandma got sick and my recovery went down the drain as I was so worried about her!
Like I said, crazy.
I am finally getting more than three hours of sleep a night after three days and I am sleeping like the dead.
With 2018 coming to an end, I decided to throw this year’s healthy mantra away to enjoy these decadent Sticky Toffee & Walnut Puddings!
To be completely honest, this isn’t the first time this year that I’ve enjoyed this particular dessert. A real close friend of mine had chosen this as one of the desserts at a recent wedding. That’s where I was hooked. It is, however, the first time I’m making these at home.
Living among different cultures and nationalities gives you insight into different traditions and a chance to try out new things.
Growing up in the Middle East meant that shawermas, manakeesh, baklava, basboosa and maamoul were among the few things popular in our home.

There’s no better way to embrace the strawberry season then to make Strawberry Cream Puffs.

I think I just need some stimulating company with some conversation that makes you ponder about..everything.
Life has been so crazy recently, filled with unexpected curve balls poppin’ up outta no where paired with the constant back and forth between the different cities has left me with not much of a routine. No routine means a lot of time wasted for me! Especially if I’ve got some good romance novels nearby!
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!
It’s finally pie season!

But finally, here is my recipe with full proof formulas for making the perfect pie dough! Continue reading “Easy as Pie- Pie Dough”→
