Your New Favorite Tabbouleh Salad Recipe (Vegan)
I love Middle-Eastern salads. I am a big advocate of eating tons of Middle-Eastern salads when you're on a diet. Not only are all the ingredients so colorful and fresh, but the lemon, mint, and olive oil so essential to these dishes create such a perfect combination of flavors that you don't even realize just how healthfully you're eating! Tabbouleh salad is perhaps my favorite one, and I remember growing up, tabbouleh was one of those few things (minus cold pizza) that tasted arguably even better a few hours later. Similar to a panzanella salad, the wheat absorbs all the delicious ingredients if it sits a little longer! Don't believe me? Let this taboulleh sit in your fridge for at least an hour before eating it, and you'll see that it was definitely worth the wait! ------------------------------------------------------------- Tabbouleh 1/2 cup fine burghul (cracked wheat) 2 large tomatoes, diced 1 bunch green onions, chopped 4 bunches parsley, chopped 1/2 bunch mint, chopped (or 2 tbsp. dried mint) 1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped 1/2 cup olive oil Juice of 3 lemons 1 tbsp. salt 1/2 tsp. pepper Wash Burghul. Drain and place in a large bowl. Add all chopped vegetables and mix well. Add olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Mix again, and serve over fresh green lettuce. ------------------------------------------------------------- You could eat this with a fork, but perhaps my favorite way is scooping it up with leaves of romaine lettuce, slightly similar to how you would eat a lettuce wrap. It's delicious!
The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
Pikachu Buns
I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate.

Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.
Katayef (Arabic Sweet Dessert Pancakes)
Recently, one of my cousins decided to have a 'baking day' where he made a big and beautiful plate of katayef, which not only got me all sorts of salivating but also inspired me to introduce katayef to the rest of you! I feel like many cultures have something similar to katayef, a dessert pancake filled with chopped nuts and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. In India, for example, certain varieties of gulab jamun are dumplings will with nuts. In the Ukraine, varenikis is a dessert similar to the apple dumpling, which swaps out apple with chopped nuts, sweet cheeses, and berries. And in South Korea, of course, there is the street food, hotteok, a pancake literally filled with warm sugar, spices, nuts, or sometimes seeds. Katayef is a pancake made with smeed, also known as 'farina' or 'fine semolina'. It is then filled with chopped nuts, spices, and sugar before being folded over and pinched closed to create dumpling shape. Among the Middle East's Muslim population, katayef is most often enjoyed during Ramadan season as a delicious way to break the fast. However, it is also enjoyed throughout the year as a staple dessert on special occasions. Here is the recipe for katayef in two variations - with walnuts or with sweet cheese (known as katayef assafiri). Not only is katayef fun to make, but it's also beautiful in every stage! Try it out the next time you want to surprise friends with a fun and delicious addition to the usual dessert spread. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Katayef (Stuffed Pancakes) To make Thin Attar: 2 cups sugar 1 1/2 cups of water 1 tbsp. lemon juice 1 tsp. orange blossom water (Mazaher), optional Mix sugar and water and bring to boil. Add lemon juice and boil for 7 more minutes. When cool, add orange blossom water (optional). Makes 2 1/2 cups of Thin Attar. To make Pancakes: (Note: To make the cheese-stuffed katayef, use half the amount of these listed ingredients.) 4 cups smeed (Farina) 8 cups water 1 cup flour 1 package yeast Dash of salt 1/4 tsp. baking soda 1 cup rendered (or clarified) butter 2 cups Thin Attar (see recipe above) To make Walnut Stuffing (Option 1): 6 cups walnuts, chopped 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 tbsp. rendered (or clarified) butter To make Cheese Stuffing (Option 2):** 1 1/2 lbs. sweet cheese (Syrian or Ricotta) 1/2 cup sugar 1 tbsp. mazaher (orange blossom water) 1. Mix all stuffing ingredients and set aside. 2. Mix smeed, flour, and salt. 3. Place warm water in an electric mixing bowl. While mixing on high speed, add the smeed mixture gradually to form a thin pancake mix. 4. Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of water and a dash of sugar. Add to the pancake mixture. Mix for 1 more minute. Set aside for 40 minutes, stirring every 7 minutes (so water won't separate from smeed to avoid a lumpy mixture). Add the baking soda and keep stirring. When the dough bubbles, it is ready to be baked. 5. Use an electric frying pan set at 450 degrees. 6. FOR NUT FILLING: Pour 1/4 cup dough and cook like a pancake, on one side only. Remove from fine when pores form on the surface of each cake. Place the pancakes on a smooth surfaced towel until they cool. 7. Fill each pancake with the stuffing mixture. Fold by pressing edges together to make a semicircle. Brush each on both sides with warm butter. 8. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees in a preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until light gold. 9. Remove from oven and dip in cold syrup (thin Attar). Makes about 35 pieces. 6. FOR CHEESE FILLING: Pour 2 tbsp. dough and cook like a smaller pancake circle, on one side only. Remove from fine when pores form on the surface of each cake. Place the pancakes on a smooth surfaced towel until they cool. 7. Stuff the pancakes with the cheese stuffing, closing one edge half-way to look like stuffed shells. 8. Do not dip in syrup. Pour 1 tbsp. of thin Attar on each. 9. Decorate with ground pistachios or one red preserved cherry for each shell, optional.

A Baba Ghannouj Recipe That Isn't Baba Ghannasty (Vegan)
Baba Ghannouj (also spelled 'gannoush' or 'ghanouj') is a tahini-based dip similar to hummus, swapping out creamy chickpeas for the smoky flavor of roasted eggplant. I'm a bit of a baba ghannouj snob, as ratio is really important in a dip like this. Too much tahini makes the consistency runny, while too much eggplant gives it a really seedy texture. ('Baba ghannasty' is actually what I used to call really seedy baba ghannouj growing up. No kid likes a lot of mushy eggplant!) Here is a traditional recipe for baba ghannouj. Pair it with some lightly toasted loaves of pita bread or sliced veggies for a healthy snack that's full of flavor! --------------------------------------------------------- Eggplant Dip (Baba Ghannouj) 1 large eggplant 1/2 cup tahineh 2 tbsp. olive oil 1 clove of garlic, minced Juice of 1 lemon Salt to taste Cut 1" slits in eggplant to prevent from splattering while baking. Bake eggplant at 500 degrees until tender (or boil in water 10 to 15 minutes). Split eggplant open and scoop the inside pulp together with the juice. Mix Tahineh, lemon juice, garlic, and salt to make Tahineh sauce. Add water, in needed, to make a thick sauce. Add mashed eggplant to Tahineh sauce. Place in salad bowl and pour oil on top. Garnish with parsley and tomato slices, if desired. --------------------------------------------------------- I hope you all enjoy making this at home! Try creating your own variations, or swapping out the eggplant with zucchini or acorn squash for a whole new flavor!

You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
