Gold on top of pistachio

Dubai is a place of luxury

You get the most expensive dessert in the world and it’s got gold on it. I dono how it tastes nor do I fancy eating gold but I believe that a bit of edible gold and silver leaf brings glamour into a dish.

Here is my boston cream pie with a luxury touch. Β That gold on top of the pistachio gives it a bit of elegance, luxury and class.


My first ever Strawberry rose  😊

Cherry On Top

Eggless Cake


1/2 cup whole meal flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup sunflower oil
1/3 cup water
2 pinches baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda in a deep bowl and mix
2. Make 3 wells in the dry mixture
3. Pour the vanilla, oil and water into the 3 wells
4. Mix the entire ingredients using a fork
5. Divide batter into 7 baking cups line with baking parchment or cases
6. Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees in a pre heated oven.
Cool completely before serving

You can add bit of flavour by topping the cake batter with some orange zest or a spoon of dulche de leche or a few tablespoons of cocoa so that you can have a chocolate flavour.
I added a few chocolate chips too to make it a variety.

When you cook your the master

So your with your ingredients

I can believe that I have started baking eggless and butterless oh it means dairy free πŸ™‚

Quinoa Meals and Ideas

the first time I saw or herd of quinoa grains or quinoa buriyani I was thinking alot.
so I decided to ask the quinoa
here is my interview with quinoa

at carrefour
Me: hi quinoa, how do you taste?
Q: hi foodie, try me and find for yourself. i hate boosting.

So i grab a mixed quinoa pack and made some buriyani inspired the buriyani pot dubai image on instagram.
The buriyani was okay and maybe it needed more cooking time but the quinoa was quiet chewy and i dint miss rice πŸ™‚

Later on i decided to do some invention tests and started off making quinoa pizza, salad and quiches (images not available as they went in fast and were experiments)

So here is my latest intention tests and successful recipes.
There is no big magic but gladly the pie turned out of the ramekins which made me happy and call it a real pie.
So i dont need flour to make a pie anymore.

Now the quinoa stand on my pantry making a second batch entry weeping and counting its days πŸ™‚

Let me say this ingredient needs to be cooked exactly like rice and if we dont check frkm time to time you might get an overcooked quinoa and end up makong a porridge.

Some images below were created especially for a competition but am glad i did and now i realized that being incentive helps a recipe writer to buil her own recipes and that why i am the recipe writer πŸ™‚

Havs a great day and keep doing some invention tests in your pantry. After all watching masterchef and worrying if this might work or not is pointless.

Tip, tip
To make a pizza use the quinoa in the same way but to give it some firmness add some low calory cheese to bind it together πŸ™‚
