Icecream cake

Please do, I've made it a few times since I posted the recipe and the best result I have had is by using a little less flour than required. It still becomes "dry" in the fridge, so I guess the best way to keep it for a few days is in an air tight box in the kitchen cupboard. My 2nd favourite way too eat it is with a scoop of icecream to it when it's just out of the oven......Hmmmh! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

RE: Bacon soup

Egyptian cuisine has a lot of flavorful recipes that evolved as a way to use leftovers. This hearty dish features rice, pasta, lentils… and a lot more. You can think of Koshari as the second cousin of Mujaddara but has much more flavors as it is topped with a spiced tomato sauce and a delicious cumin sauce.
While Falafel and ful are the traditional breakfast dishes in Egypt, Koshary is usually consumed in lunch and mostly dinner.
Spicy, delicious, saucy and frugal, the only downside in my opinion, it just needs lots of pans. Although the dish will take sometime to put together, each element is fairly simple to prepare.

Koshari recipe was the first to post in this space on the internet when it was named arabianmama in 2012.
Put lentils in a colander and wash with running cold water.
Place lentils in a pot and cover with water 2-3 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to minimum and simmer for 25-30 minutes until almost done. Drain.
In the same pot add oil, chopped onion and suate until fragrant.
Add semi-cooked lentils, cumin, salt and tomato sauce.
Cook for 15 minutes on medium or until tender but not mushy. Set aside.
Prepare short grain rice as directed on the package or in your rice cooker. Traditionally, short grain rice is used. Some people like using Basmati rice or even Jasmine rice, this is ok but not the traditional way to prepare this dish.
Making Koshari with vermicelli is not traditional but highly recommended. I have a motto that anything is better with vermicelli. So go get some from the store and make it, you’ll never regret it I promise.
Roast vermicelli in some oil, then gradually add water until it absorbs the water and becomes tender and not clumpy or mushy. This steps depends greatly on the kind of vermicelli you are getting.
Cook Pasta according to package directions, drain then mix in salt and pepper and oil.
You should have soaked chickpeas overnight or if you forgot you can soak for an hour in hot water and baking soda.
KOSHARI SAUCES: THIS PART IS WHAT IS GOING TO SET YOUR DISH APART
We need to prepare two types of sauces, tomato sauce which is a must and kammuneyah or cumin sauce
Assemble the dish by just adding and mixing everything together, or make them in a decorative way as shown above. Top with both sauces, cooked chickpeas and may be a sprinkle of cayenne powder??.

SOME NOTES ABOUT KOSHARY:
Some people feel that rice should not be so white in the koshari recipe so they do one of 1) cooking rice using the water from cooking lentils, 2) when lentils is halfway cooked they add it, without its water, to the rice pot and cook both together. Obviously I do neither because my kids do not like much lentils in their koshari and I like everyone to assemble his dish according to his liking.
Reserve about 1/4 cup of the onion oil , the one in which you’ve fried the onions, and add them to the cooked rice and mix. This gives the rice some shine plus an unbelievably great smell and taste.
One of my friends does something strange, she soaks some raisins in hot water then drain and serve it alongside the koshari. She is the only person in my life I’ve seen doing so, I tried it once, it is not bad. But I feel that raisins, vinegar and garlic do not quiet match here. So may be dried cranberries will do better if you want to try it.
Some people like adding onion instead of, or with, garlic in the tomato sauce, I only add garlic. Many people spice up the tomato sauce with cayenne pepper but I do not do that as I have little kiddos at home. Instead I add it on my plate.
You can use a can of Garbanzo beans instead of cooking the chickpeas yourself, I do not like using the cans but sometimes it is more convenient.
That’s it guys, one of the very best Egyptian vegetarian comfort dishes that you need to try at least once in your life. Amazing flavors and textures, it is a feast in your mouth.

Fish crumb mixture(Fish and Chips)

We froze some of fish for later, so maybe we make croquette and possibly photo posting so people understand how tasty it really was.

Normally the fish fry comes out super tasty. But I seen where it get burned turn very bad. Watch the food, get slight brown color turn it over until your satisfied it crispy enough drip it out and then repeat this cycle until all pieces are out.

If thick chunk fish, might want half slice so it cook evenly. Tell that BJ's brewery they gave people huge chunk fish made question who really in kitchen cooking it. It was burnt to extra char that said they left to fry unattended.

Frying happens rather quick...

wow I know now if fry donuts in oil it be super elastic and tasty.

My own variation Miso Soup

Normally we use Firm tofu, Yellow potatoes, carrots normal orange kind, but rarely we ever get collard. I like collard because less gas mileage for people, and you feel full and makes you feel that ate some tasty, good for steaming, stir fries, kind would replace spinach because cooks lot better.

Heck my goats love collard.

Roasted potatoes you have make earlier before everything else. My mom has her two bits about potatoes, she wants to start snacking you know on them I like hey wait minute. That why I always get sweet potatoes at store...so she has something snack on.

Could put onions but type that tastes good...Mochi tastes good in udon and many other variations...oh I tried to get my mom into buckwheat noodle with curry but she so not trying it too perverse I guess.

For taste of that it was good. Just for anyone seeking to so clash religious arcs do it. You make American people love you especially foodie people...spicy curry in buckwheat will make people go hey what now. comfort I clearly have to thai spicy bottle..it was so spicy...should get it for making cookies, I seven Japanese spice wasn't enough I wanted to make volcano hot spicy gingerbread cookie it never happened.applause

Juicing for health

Note the photo: is picture Kale/collard/Celery Plus weak Carrot + Pear combo I didn't want kale too strong...
If want to make sweet for people in your life I recommend adding honey to make them less hating you.
Kale and collard is combo I wanted to try not bad, celery is like not having to add nuts. Carrot is good but if you add five carrots or more it makes tasty juice plus some pears in there tastes really sweet naturally.

Other combo that works but makes too sweet is carrot + pineapple I wouldn't recommend it unless your eating something bitter like Grapefruit + Kale + Celery very strong overpowering flavors of bitter You may need Carrot + pineapple flavor...keep pulp for making frozen pops? especially if super grind it up or just freeze it and have special day when too hot to much.grind it down and become nice soft serve.

Collard equal to broccoli flavor without gas...

Kale is high nutritional and my dog loves it baked especially my mom.

Juicing can have lot other flavors as well. don't assume it can't be juiced, just assume what best way to get juice out it or flavor.
