Day 12 - Mante with Yogurt Soup

Even though I grew up in Kuwait my mother would very often cook some delicious traditional Armenian dishes. One dish, that I favored the most was Mante. It's a sort of flour ball with diced meat in it and it tastes great with yogurt. Now that I live with two cultures I make sure to bring out the best of both sides. However, yesterday's dinner was mante.

Ramadan Day 10 + 11 - Rice with Green Beans & Veggie Pancakes

Ramadan is going fast and we're already at day 10 and 11. For these two days we ate rice with green beans and dill with a side dish of veggie pancakes. 




Ramadan Day 8+9 - Shish Taouk & Hummus

For day 8 and 9 I decided to spoil my family. My husband and daughter love shish taouk, therefore it wasn't too hard to decide what to cook these days. During Ramadan I don't like to cook too much, so you'll notice that we sometimes eat the same thing for two days in a row.

Ramadan Day 6+7 - Tashrib & Sweet Bites

Last Ramadan I promised I would post every single day, however, that promise was not kept since a lot of things got in the way. To keep this promise,  I've decided to continue from last year. Starting with what we had to eat for day 6 and 7. 

During these two days we decided to have tashrib, which is a tomato sauce with chicken and bread. The bread I'm using is homemade and you can find the recipe here. For dessert I made sweet bites, which is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert also known as legamat or awamat. It's mostly served during Ramadan.

Nutella & Banana Pastries

Over the weekend I was browsing through Pinterest and stumbled upon some pastries with nutella and bananas. They looked really delicious, so I decided to give it a go and I must say, they're just as good as they look!

Date Cake With Caramel Sauce

Coming from a Middle Eastern culture dates are really important (and delicious.) It's used in many dishes, but it's also good as a simple snack. 

About a year ago I discovered a date cake recipe - and it's delicious! The cake is really moist and the caramel sauce together with the dates make it a perfect combo.

Ramadan Day 4 - Grilled Shrimps & Chickpea Salad (Fattah)

It's been a while since I've made grilled shrimps and it certainly is a favorite here at home, therefore I found it most appropriate to make them today - with a side chickpea salad.
