I cannot believe it! A whole year has passed since I started blogging. Time flies by so quickly when you’re having fun. When I first started writing, I wanted to share my recipes with my daughters in a convenient way since they would always ask me for help. Then, my eldest son came up with the idea of blogging so that I could post my recipes online one at a time, and eventually write enough to reach my goal of writing my own cook book 🙂

I wouldn’t have thought that blogging would introduce me to such a nice community of fine people as all of you are. You encouraged me a lot with your comments, awards and even the simple Likes. Thank you all for the kind words and positive attitude 🙂

To celebrate the occasion, I decided to bake this angel food cake and to decorate it with pistachios, fruits and chocolate sticks. I share this dedicate this recipe to all of you. Bake it yourself and have a slice on me 😉

  • 50 grams flour
  • 50 grams corn flour

Today I will not post any new recipe. I am going back home. I am going back to Beirut-Lebanon. I enjoyed my stay in Abu Dhabi. But, I am happily going back to my HOME SWEET HOME. I would like that you enjoy this video with our Famous and Elegant Majida El Roumi with a lovely song to Beirut. In the song she asks Beirut to rise from the rubble…..

We all need to rise sometimes. God bless you all.

See you soon…


With all my Love….
