Moroccan Almond Cookies - Ghriyba

This my Grandma's Recipe!! Being away from home made me miss these cookies so bad that I called my Grandma and asked her foe the recipe. These are not usually made regularly at home in Morocco. They are considered high end pastry (it's quite expensive, since the main ingredient is almonds) and it is usually served in special occasions like a wedding or a party. Ghriyba (Ghoriba) is usually served the famous Moroccan Mint Tea. And it is, oh so good!!! Chewing from the inside, with a little crunch from the icing sugar and the flavors come together perfectly!! The taste of the almonds with the hint of vanilla mixing

Lentil Soup!!

Lentils (like beets) are another one of my favorite super foods!! I am a huge fan of lentils regardless of their health benefits and how rich they are in fiber and iron. Plus, with this technique that I have developed throughout the years, they are also one of the quickest and easiest side dish or even meal I can have. This recipe, doesn't call for preparation at all and the lentils are ready in about 20 minutes. All you have to do is pretty much patiently wait for them to cook!! Sounds pretty easy right? Also, all you need is lentils (of course), one chopped onion, a few garlic gloves, chopped parsley and salt. Drizzle with a little

My Pastry Cream Recipe / Crème pâtissière

Pastry Cream (French Crème pâtissière) is one of the most used creams in baking specially in pastry making.
It is rich, and in this video I show how to make the traditional or the basic pastry cream version. However, it can be flavored differently, with either lemon, chocolate, almond, etc. This cream is used in Pain Aux Raisins, Almond Cream Filled Croissants, Eclairs (Recipe coming soon), Apple tart, and many other recipes.

Pain Aux Raisins/ Snail Pastry

Pain Aux Raisins, Snail Pastry, Danish Roll, Escargot or however you prefer to call these incredible delicious baked goodies are actually pretty easy to make. In this recipe, I chose to make them with a puff pastry (like the one I used for Croissants or Petit Pain Au Chocolat) just because it is the traditional way of making them. It might be a little time consuming but not complicated at all to realize the puff pastry as I have shown in many of previous my videos. You can opt for the quicker way to just incorporate the butter with the flour and skip the folding steps, but I would result in a less flaky and

Béchamel Sauce/ White Sauce

This is a classic Béchamel sauce Recipe except that I give out the secret to a perfectly smooth sauce, lump free. No the secret is not to add the milk a little at a time. And nope, it's not to keep stirring.. Sorry you have been mislead for all this time... 

The Secret is to let the butter and flour get really hot and bubbly before adding the COLD milk!!

Spinach Lasagna

Lasagna is my favorite food of all time... 
Here is a healthier, lighter and to my taste more delicious version of it.

I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves and dive right into the recipe.

  • 6.5 oz Lasagna (about 8 CREAMETTE noodles)
  • 8 oz fresh spinach

Banana Muffins!!

Have you ever wondered banana muffin with walnutswhat to do with or should I say, how to get rid of, over-ripped bananas? This Banana Muffin recipe will make you look for over-ripped Banana at the store and if you can’t find them, you’ll buy bananas and anxiously wait for them to be brown enough to use for these delicious Muffins!! Or better yet, if you’re like me, a bit impatient, you will not bother waiting and just go for regular bananas (they make a less sweet Muffin, but just as good) to make these.
These Muffins go great with coffee, they make a great breakfast or snack. I make a batch and place it in an air tight container in the fridge, that way I have a

Ginger Garlic Salmon

This a really quick, healthy and delicious meal idea!! Aside from the health benefits of this dish, it is extremely easy to make and it takes 5 minutes to prepare. Apart from the marinating time, the salmon can be ready in 15 minutes, as it cooks pretty fast as well.

Garlic Ginger salmon 1
I am a butternut squash lover I could eat it all day everyday without even adding salt to it (I know, I’m weird), so I steamed some as a side. I also thought that wasting all those flavors from the salmon and the marinating sauce would be a sin, so I shredded up a couple zucchinis and the residue after removing the salmon. I sautéed them for a few minutes in all the goodness and voila! 
Of course you can have any side you’d like with this. Mashed potatoes, pilaf rice, broccoli, to name a few. I’d love to hear what kind of side dishes you’d serve this salmon, so let me know in a comment.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

2012-03-04_12-04-05_833These are so easy to make! Once you’ve tried this recipe you will never buy a premade flour tortilla again!!
I make these tortillas at least once a week and needless to say I have gotten really good at making them. The secret is to try and make them as thin as possible. That way they will need less time to cook and therefore they will remain soft and flexible.

  • 3 cups all purpose flour (or wheat flour)

Eggplant And Potato Gratin

This a super easy, fast and definitely a family favorite side dish. This gratin is loaded with vegetables and relatively low in fat. You can add ground beef to it, but I don’t think it’s necessary as I find it very rich and flavorful as it is.

For the gluten free version, simply substitute the flour with rice flour and a little bit of corn starch, Voila! Or for a lactose free version, simple use almond milk instead of regular. So this is a really delicious alternative to eating vegetables in a fancy way.

Also, the taste of the the browned eggplant with the caramelized onions and potatoes goes amazingly good together. Add to that a hint of nutmeg spiced béchamel/ white sauce and you have a perfect food heaven in your mouth!!
