A couple of days ago I received a cute box from @SugarRushBakeryQ8 (instagram) that had Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Push Pops. When i saw the push pops I immediately remembered the good old days when we used to enjoy eating the colourful ice cream inside these push pops. i loved the idea of making Red Velvet cake inside push pops. It’s fun to look at and eat from. Bet the kids would enjoy their time eating from it.
Now let’s talk about the flavour. I’m a huge fan of red velvet, I always order red velvet especially for customised cakes, everything is red velvet. So imagine my excitement when I found out that the Push Pops had red velvet inside them *yeeeppppeee*
The cake was kinda light, delicious and creamy. The quantity is good enough for one person, suitable for kids and birthdays. Also it will be nice to have it in your gatherings and remind your friends of their childhood :D
Thank you Khoulod for the delicious package and wish you all the best :*
Last week, my sister and I went to Iftar at Dean & Dealuca at The Avenues-2nd phase. Mashallah the place was getting crowded by the time we reached the place around 6:30pm. Around 6:45pm it became full and a long line started to build up.
We were seated and offered some dates. Then we started checking their iftar menu which we liked very much. We ordered Muhamara and Humus, Mansaf, Kubba Sajiyah and Askar dish. Everything was very delicious and yummy especially the muhammara and kubba sajiyah yum yum.
The service was somehow slow, because it was very crowded but they brought our order very fast and it was fresh not cold or anything like that. The quantity of food was very decent and the prices were reasonable.
Thank you Dean & Deluca for the lovely Iftar :)
Last Monday, we gathered at Jumana’s house, you all know her as The SideTalk. I haven’t been to her house before but this lady is so kind and nice, I’ve know her ever since we were pregnant with our babies and we’ve kept in touch. She’s one of the few people that I feel comfortable with so we all gathered at her cozy place wearing somehow fancy Darra’as (not THAT fancy). The gang members were Danderma, Jacqui, and PinkGirl. It’s always fun gathering with these girls.
Jumana’s house was so whitish and full of coziness and comfort. I felt so happy entering her house and sitting on her huge sofas and facing a huge bouquet of mini pink roses. The lady was so busy going and coming back from the kitchen preparing the table. We decided not to eat a lot on Fitoor so we can have fun together eating delicious food, yes we can have lots n lots of fun eating food lol :P
She made a delicious Syrian Taboulah, it was so yummy :P we ate Caesar pizza, hummus, fatayer and a lot of desserts. Aaahhh the desserts were awesome, heavenly awesome especially the Turkish Muhalabiya which I posted about on my instagram account (check it out if you want more information @crazyyetwise).
At the end of our mini ghabqa, Jumana had a lil surprise for us all. Her baby”s Gerge’an. How cute is baby Yuyu? ha? Soo damn cute :D Thank you Jumana for having us in your beautiful house. We loved everything :*
Last week, my husband and I went to Palms Restaurant to have Iftar there. We always go out and try places for iftar in Ramadan but this year we’re not feeling like it, maybe because of the weather or something but we managed to go to Palms.
The place full of Ramadan theme, the decoration was really beautiful, it felt so Ramadany. We were seated in our table which had some appetisers as you can see in the pictures; tabular, fattoush, hummus, bamia and mutabal , Leban and some dates. We also ordered Jellab and Vimto. They had 2 kinds of soups, Lentil and Vegetables soups, we tried both of them and they were really good.When we started eating the appetisers, the buffet was very crowded, so we waited until people went back to their places. We chose from a variety of dishes, the food was really delicious. We loved the whole atmosphere.
At the end, an Egyptian man was going around tables offering Erq Sous drink which i don’t like at all but my husband does and he said it was amazing. I loved the way he was dressed and pouring the drink, as if we were in Egyypt.
Thank you Palms Restaurant for the lovely iftar.
I cam across an account that produces fresh nut milks as a home business. I believe the owner is Indian (not sure though) but she does great job. The flavours she has are really tempting, I wanted to try the unique ones so I ordered Pistachio nut milk with vanilla bean and Cashew nut milk with mixed spices and rose water. The owner was sweet enough and sent me Almond nut milk to try. It took her 2 days to make and my order was delivered on time.
The bottles were organised and all details and information were listed on them along with the expiry date. Note that all milks are sweetened by dates, if you want them sweetened, if you don’t want them sweetened, you can ask her not. My favourite was the Cashew one, oh my god, it was really delicious and refreshing, cold and very soothing especially for sohoor. I loved her products.
You can try her nut milks by ordering from her. Check the instagram account @purplesunflowersq8
Finally, my beautiful fat macbook pro is alive with a new heart :D It’s been more than 2 weeks. He was dead for no reason, I tried to revive him, but nothing worked until I called fixaid (tried them before for my iPhone) and they’ve informed me that they have to take the pc with them to the workshop. The idea of your pc away from your sight is kinda scary, so i waited for another idea or way to fix my computer but there was nothing. I called them again and they’ve fixed the problem in 4 days. The hard disk was dead and they had to replace it with a new one (512GB upgraded).
Of course everything was gone, but the most important things were backed up on an external hard drive. I’ve lost my blog watermark :( all the programmes I used to work on were all gone (need to install them again). And I’ve lost Juju’s 18months pictures :( *Sniff* and my school work *aaaaaahhhh* which I didn’t back but i can get it from my colleagues when the academic year starts again.
Now, I’m back to writing and this time, i’ll be talking about our mini Ghabqa which was hosted by our dear Danderma aver les amis Jacqui and PinkGirlq8. I love these girls, they’re the closest to my heart and I can say whatever I want in front of them not worrying what will come out of my mouth at all. I can act freely and easily. I can wear whatever i want in front of them, and that exactly what happened in our mini Ghabqa which we called غبقة حضرتنا quoting the name from Saray Abdeen TV show which we are addicted to.
In Kuwaiti Ghabqas (Ramadan gathering after Iftar) you have to wear a very elegant Darra’a and wear jewellery and make up. We didn’t want that in our Ghabqa, we wore house Darra’a and sat on the floor facing the table full of yumminess and watching TV.
It was a very nice and cozy Ghabqa where we had lots of fun together. I love you girls :*
Yesterday I received a delicious light chocolate tart from Little Treats (@littletreatsq8). I honestly love their stuff, whatever they do is delicious and yummy. I ordered from them sugar cookies for Juju’s 1yr birthday and they were amazing.
This chocolate tart was also delicious, light, moist and yummy, it melts in your mouth in seconds and it’s the perfect dessert for after fotoor to give your body the sugar and energy it needs.
You can order it from their Omina Malla branch or by calling them, check their number in their instagram account @littletreatsq8
Thank you my dear Nouf :*
Ramadan gifts are one of the things we await because they’re filled with lots of delicious goodies. One of these gifts i’ve received from the people of Dean and Deluca. The basket was really huge and heavy and wrapped with D&D blue ribbon. I was so excited opening it and exploring the things inside that basket.
You can win my heart with Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar, these two are precious to my heart, just add sun dried tomatoes and you have a sexy meal. There were also coffee and green tea *yum*, delicious chocolate bars with rose and pistachio, and filled dates and baklava :D yuuummmmyy
You can find all these things at D&D, their Baklava is very delicious and light. And you can enjoy Fotoor or Sohoor in their Avenues branch.
The perfect Ramadan gift basket:D Thank you guys
Every year, we celebrate garish (pre Ramadan feast) at my grandparent’s house, with our family members and friends. The gathering begins around 7pm and continues tip midnight getting in the mood for Ramadan timing. My aunt takes care of the decorations and activities, my grandma takes care of the food, she has a great cook, and we other family members bring desserts with us.
We wear darra’a because it’s Ramadan theme and we get to talk and chit chat with everybody we haven’t seen for a while. We also play some Ramadan Kuwaiti songs and dance a bit, my beautiful Juju loved the whole atmosphere, she didn’t stop dancing. We had lots of fun :D
The food was amazing, my grandma’s cook did an amazing job, we also brought a lady that does Rgag bread in front of our eyes with a variety of stuffing. DELICIOUS.
Juju and I matched clothes :D
Lots of funny gifts for our guest :D
The rgag bread lady
and I won :D
I’ve always heard of this place and have been wanting to try it but didn’t get the chance. In the last week, before closing schools, we decided (teachers) to go out and have breakfast together. We decided to try Breakfast Club Fintas branch because it was closer. The place was very very small and crowded, but we managed to secure 2 tables for 4 persons. The service, quality, quantity, and prices were perfect but one thing we didn’t like,,,all plates were broken from the edge, we asked them to change our plates but they kept bringing us broken plates, it seemed that almost all of the plates were broken which was kinda disappointing. I wish they’d pay more attention to such thing because their food is really amazing.
The whole breakfast turned out as a surprise from my colleagues for my 31st birthday :D I was speechless, it was a very nice surprise. I love you guys :*
Verdict: Delicious, loved the raspberries.
Verdict: It was good, the mango sauce added a lovely flavour to the whole thing
Halloumi Club Sandwich
Verdict: Not a fan of Halloumi but this one was ok.
English Muffin Egg Benedict
Verdict: A must try,,,HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Verdict: OMG, this one was the winner, a dish I never expected to be THAT delicious, highly recommended.
I’ve actually never heard of it before but my sister has and she knows it’s delicious. Last week I’ve received this dessert platter from @Nestle_Coffee1 instagram account. I was skeptical of trying this platter because it’s sweet and salty at the same time but i’m into trying new things, why not?
It was really good and delicious, yet very very heavy, 2 fingers are more than enough. This dish is delicious for your Ramadan gathering specially after Iftar, you’ll need all the extra sugar :P
Thank you Nestle_Coffee
I came upon this instagram account called @FreshMozzarella that sells fresh mozzarella cheese all the way from Italy. You order, wait a week, and then pick up your order the very next day after its arrival. The cheeses looked tempting and I’ve been seduced to try some of them, so I ordered the Stracciatella, Burrata, and Burratina cheese. My order came around KD 13/-. Somehow too much for only 3 kinds of cheeses but who cares, they’re coming all the way from Italy and I’m in the mood to have some :D
I’ve been informed via whatsupp that my order is ready for pick up, went immediately to the address and picked up my order. I received it at night so I didn’t get the chance to try any of them until the next morning when I had one Burratina for breakfast …. OMG :D It was delicious…I added my own sauce (Olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar, Honey and Fresh Rosemary), some tomatoes, lettuce, and toasted toast fingers in the oven. Yum Yum,,,,one of the most delicious breakfast I’ve ever had at home.
I kept experimenting with other cheeses. The stracciatella was really good when added with fried eggplants over toasted toasts, that was really good. The Burrata was very big unlike the Burratini (small version).
They are fresh, healthy, delicious, and can be eaten in any way you like,,,very easy to create a recipe for them.
