I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Ashtalieh - Lebanese Cream Pudding

Over the holidays we were lucky enough to receive this wonderful Middle Eastern dessert from our neighbour.

I hope to make it myself soon.


1/2 cup whipping cream
1  1/2 cups milk
3 tbsps sugar
1 tsp rose or orange blossom water
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup ground pistachios
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pistachios
Maraschino cherries to garnish

Mix whipping cream and milk together then pour 1  1/2 cups of it into a saucepan. Add the sugar and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
Add cornstarch to the remaining cream/milk mixture. Whisk into the saucepan to thicken. Add the flavour of your choice along with the ground pistachios.
Pour into a serving dish or individual bowls. Top with coarsely chopped pistachios and maraschino cherries.
Refrigerate and serve cold.
