A very easy family favorite Juice , specially in Ramdan at breakfast time
3-4 medium sized carrots (nearly 400 gm )
2-3 Table spoon Sugar (more or less according to taste)
1 Liter of freshly squeezed Orange juice ( you can use the ready made freshly squeezed ones in supermarkets)
a juice from 1 lemon
Peel the carrots and cut them into cubes
place them in a saucepan & cover them with water , add the Sugar & let them simmer in medium heat for 15 minutes (or more according to carrot sizes ) till they are softer ( I personally like it hard & I even under cook it)
with a hand mixer puree the carrots & leave to cool.

I really don’t know what can I call it exactly ! It’s chickpeas swimming in a delicious spiced soup. You enjoy eating the chickpeas as much as you enjoy drinking its soup. It’s one of the few official winter drinks that are sold in every corner in Egypt specially Cafes , clubs , street carts & of course in every house !
It’s so easy to make , you can add your favourite spices to it , and enjoy your personal taste .
It’s made of dried chickpeas that you have to soak overnight in water ,so as to make it easier in digestion & to take less cooking time. I personally use the precooked chickpeas sold in cans & the outcome is always the same ! using the ready made chickpeas in cans makes it ready in nearly 15 minutes. Just boil in water with tomatoes, onion, garlic, spices and it’s done !
This recipe was featured in my beautiful freind Nisreen's website .
Here’s the very easy recipe that kids too love .

This is a typical Egyptian dish ,made of rice meatballs soaked in delicious Tomatoe Sauce . Rice meatballs with Egyptian rice is one of my favourite dishes , it's so tasty and easy to make , you can eat it with rice or bread , or combine it with potatoes and eat it as a full meal.
It's made of minced beef meat and ground rice . You can either use the blender or kitchen machine to grind rice into a powdered form , or simply use rice flour . Earlier ,there wasn't any rice flour in the market ,so we had to grind rice at home and it was a bit hard because sometimes you can't have the powdered form that you are looking for , now with the presence of rice flour , doing this recipe became easier.

Halawet el jibn is the arabic name for cheese dessert , as it's made mainly of Mozzarella plus semolina & water . It's really easy & all guests will love it. It's an oriental dessert , Originally made in Syria , there isn't much written about its history anywhere unfortunately , I only know that it's an oriental dessert that we used to eat more during the holy month of Ramadan , I guess because we all search for a sweet thing to eat after fasting for many hours. I've been searching for a nice recipe since a long time & my friend gave me her recipe that I modified a bit to get this very nice & delicious recipe , I did it for some German guests who wanted to try something oriental & they loved it ! Hope you all try it & I'm sure you'll all love it :)

Amerikaner is a very popular cake like cookies , or you can call them cookie like small cakes ! The exact translation is "American" ! It's very popular in kids' birthdays here in Germany , every child loves them , I used to hear from the kids "I ate Amerikaner today" & I've always thought what was the "american" they ate ! they used to describe it & I never knew weather that was a cake or a cookie! I asked a German friend & she explained what was it for me & she even showed them to me ,they are every where in Bakery shops & they are sold frozen in Supermarkets ! since than I started searching for recipes & making them for kids with different toppings. Original Cookies are American & are called Black & White cookies , because they are always half black & half white . Here in Germany they are very popular in Birthdays covered with Sugar glaze ( icing ) & smarties chocolate ! you can even make faces over the suagr glaze using melted chocolate , or colored sugar glaze . you can also cover only with chocolate instead of sugar icing !
Here I did mine for my daughter who loves pink , so I covered it with Sugar glaze (icing ) & splinkeled some pink & white sugar sprinkles . It's delicious & very soft like small Cakes bit in the size of a cookie.The recipe is so easy , hope you all try it & like it .
