    Almond Cake

    I was visiting my family in New Jersey several months ago when my aunt served me a slice of almond cake. Now, I love my aunt’s cooking and baking; and she had never served me this dessert before! So, I was intrigued to try and let me tell you; it is delicious! This almond cake recipe is actually addicting and I don’t even like cake! If I do eat cake, it has to be light, moist, and not overly sweet which this cake recipe hits all those notes. I did tweak the recipe by cutting down the sweetness but this is purely inspired by my aunt’s cake. Potential of this…

    Biscoff Cheesecake Recipe

    Let me start off by saying that this no bake cheesecake is out of this world good. I mean, people love cookie butter for a really good reason. It is some delicious stuff!

That is when I slightly tweaked my original recipe to make this biscoff cheesecake recipe which is also a no bake cheesecake. WIN WIN!…

It is that time of year where holiday baking is in full effect. One of my absolute favorite desserts to bake are cookies! They are easy, pretty, and always so delicious. You can’t go wrong!

    Knafeh Na’ameh

    The ultimate Middle Eastern dessert is knafeh. There is no debate about it. Almost every region in the Middle East has its own variation of it. Knafeh has become so much more universal now where you can find it in frozen aisles of supermarkets but nothing is better than homemade. The quality is unmatched. How can I describe this dessert to you? Knafeh Na’ameh is delicately crunchy yet smooth with a layer of gooey sweet cheese and a drizzle of simple syrup.
