1256. {Air Fryer} Baked Feta


This is a delicious appetizer to share or can even be a light meal on its own if you are an appetizer affectionado. Soft, scoopable feta cheese with blistered flavorsome cherry tomatoes and a couple more surprises get soaked up with some crust bread to form a symphony in the mouth.

1255. {Air Fryer} Vineleaves


The money here lays in the sauce for these stuffed vineleaves. As I was making it, I started to doubt the flavor profile, seeing how basic and simple the stuffing ingredients are. And then, va-voom, the sauce was made and I knew even before it was cooked that we've got a stunner.

1254. {Air Fryer} Whole Roast Chicken and Vegetables


I looove my air fryer. Because I love it so much, I think I will routinely publish recipes geared towards it. Who's in?

If I had one complaint about the air fryer is that I need two of them. Case and point, this wonderful, wonderful recipe which takes 10 minutes to put together before delivering it to the trusty air fryer to finish off. I need one for the chicken and one for the vegetables to have them ready for the same meal. Otherwise, what a great investment for succulent, moist, and crispy exterior food.

1253. {Air Fryer} Aubergine Mushroom Clay Pot Beef Stew


Minimalists, look away. Not only is this a superfluous air fryer recipe, but a clay pot is required too. The clay pot was just too cute to not get. Not only aesthetically so, but also because it's got this old charm of bygone days when life was simpler and more wholesome. Turns out they are exceedingly healthy to cook in. Unlike teflon ware which leeches hormone-altering chemicals in our food, clay pot enrich our food with minerals that enhance our health.

1250. Royal Icing Cookies


This is a recipe about the icing, but I have included a simple sturdy cookie recipe ideal to use the icing on. The thing that's special about this royal icing is that it is ideal to paint decorations on a cookie. It needs a couple of hours to set, and barring experience, it usually yields great results.

1249. Ghazleeya (Arab Cotton Candy Dessert)


This was another instant hit which I know will be made over and over. Arab cotton candy differs in texture from the carnival cotton candy we all know and hate/love. The strands are somewhat thicker, overall texture slightly more dense, and it has an elasticity unique to it. But all this is literally just the topping. Under this highly attractive surface lays a delicious Arabian-flavored milk pudding that marries so well with the topping you'd think it was created for the sole purpose of being together.

1248. Jareesh Milk Soup


This jareesh milk soup is just as good in the nursery as it is on the iftar table. Besides salt, literally the only ingredients are milk and jareesh. The results is much greater than the sum of its parts; so fragrant, delicious, and comforting.

1247. Fruity Oats


Can we talk about iftar and leave out souhour? No, it just wouldn't be right, seeing how the hadiths point to it being such a blessed meal. So while the iftar is officially what breaks our fast in Ramadan, it is the souhour that gets the breakfast-style eats. Case and point: these fruity oats.
