    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. Nablus, Palestine is most known for its Knafeh Na’meh. Some of the best in the world can be found in the streets of Nablus. I am not even…

Of course, I was so excited to learn! While watching my mom prepare…

I am known to like desserts that are mildly sweet; I prefer it that way and if you are like me and don’t have a major sweet tooth but want to enjoy a treat with a cup of tea or coffee then this tahini date loaf is for you. The cinnamon and nutmeg offer a…

It’s decadent but not too sweet; it’s full of apple flavor & gluten-free thanks to Hearthy Foods Apple Flour. We all know the best part of an upside-down cake is that gooey bottom.
