So thank YOU for following along <3.

Chocolate Layer Cake with Ras El Hanout Buttercream + Poached Pears

Chocolate Layer Cake with Ras El Hanout Buttercream + Poached Pears

It's been a while! A few things have happened since my last post.

  • I discovered that I could survive without my laptop and phone for 2 days. Next challenge: 3 days.
  • Other discovery: Westonbirt arboretum in the Cotswolds. This place is magnificent, it will make you fall in love with autumn all over again. I’ve seen the prettiest trees with bright golden and neon red leafs while I was there. 
  • The US elections! (!!!)
  • I had a brownie made out of cricket flour. I think it tasted nice but I couldn’t stop picturing tiny crickets everywhere while I was chewing it. I had about 4 spoons, not bad no? Maybe insect flour is just not my thing.

Krachel - Aniseed and Sesame Seed Sweet Buns

Krachel - Aniseed and Sesame Seed Sweet Buns

So??? Are your streets fully covered with beautiful golden leaves yet? I can’t wait!

I made these krachel a few weeks ago and all I’ve been trying to do lately is find the time to bake them again! Krachel are Moroccan aniseed and sesame seed sweet buns. They are prefect in the sense that they are not too sweet to be enjoyed with savoury things but fragrant and rich enough to be enjoyed on their own. I love my krachel warm with butter, salted butter ideally. But I also love them with cheese! Cheese + krachel is really a match made in heaven, believe me.

Buttermilk and Almond Basbousa with Orange and Cardamom Syrup

My basbousa is finally online! Let’s all celebrate by making basbousa?!

I am back to London where the weather is kind of “moody” which made me very nostalgic of my trips to Morocco and Ibiza. Summer is officially over for me! Being home also meant I had to deal with my least favourite back-from-holiday task: sorting out all the pictures. It took a while this time. I needed 3 folders! A regular one, a food one and a baby one!

FroYo Orange Blossom Lemonade Popsicles

FroYo Orange Blossom Lemonade Popsicles

I know I know, I’ve missed #popsicleweek2016!!! How did this happen? And also, where was I? I think I was still on “full-time” mama duty or something like that. By “full-time” I mean that phase when washing your hair requires days ahead of planning, babies get better after a while, they really do and it is so much fun and LOVE!

Pistachio and Hazelnut Briouate

Pistachio and Hazelnut Briouate

Do you know the feeling when you discover that you’ve just made your actual favourite-most delicious-cookie-in the entire world taste a zillion times better? That’s a very special feeling and it doesn’t happen everyday. That’s how I felt the first time I tasted my pistachio and hazelnut briouates. It made me feel like dancing and jumping around. Seriously.

Sfenj - Moroccan Donuts

Sfenj - Moroccan Donuts

Happy national donut day North America! Until last year, I didn’t know there was such a thing as national donut day. I had to start blogging and become a devoted instagrammer to find out about national donut day’s existence. Then I realised donut comes from dough-nut, and I didn’t how to feel about that. Because when you think about it, many donuts should be called but ring donuts but that’s another story!

If you leave in the States you can get actual free donuts today in many shops and stores. How cool is that? But the best thing about today is that many foodies such as chefs and bloggers will share their favourite/customized donut recipe!  And, that is even cooler!
