1299. Fresh Zaatar Haloomi Bread

Doubling as an afternoon bite or a hearty breakfast, this is a must-make recipe that freezes really well for when you are lucky to come across a batch of fresh zaatar. Another added bonus to this recipe is that you literally but all the ingredients together in a bowl and knead.

1298. Clay Pot Eggs

This is your weekend breakfast, sorted. The clay pot in this equation is actually optional, but it is an indicator as to the simple origins of this egg dish. A simple saute of tomato, green pepper, and onion is fried up. Eggs are cracked in and scrambled. The lot is then topped with glass jar spread cheese.

1297. Ferrero Rocher Trifle

The world can't seem to get enough of the hazelnut fix in all its forms. This is a trifle maximizing on all things hazelnut. There is a biscuit-roasted hazelnut crumb, a hazelnut paste mousse, followed by a chocolate hazelnut mousse, all dotted by crumbed ferrero rocher hazelnut chocolates.

1296. Tuna Baguette Sandwich

This is my favorite way to eat a tuna sandwich. It might not look like much, but some of the best things in life might not meet the artificial beauty scale of nowadays. It is quite simple, starting with a can of brined tuna, but the combination makes for a staple recipe.

1295. Marzipan Apple Pie

Adding marzipan to a classic apple pie is a nutty and floral twist not to be missed. The apple mixture is macerated in cinnamon and a bit of brown sugar, where upon its resulting juices are collected, cooked down, and re-immersed.

1294. Savoury Zaatar Cookie Rings

This is a traditional Palestinian savoury zaatar cookie, falling under the generic term "kaak". If you are lucky to have easy access to fresh zaatar, go ahead and use it here. Otherwise, the dried zaatar mix works just as well.

1293. White Chicken Lasagne

Everyone knows and loves the classic minced meat and tomato sauce lasagne. This while sauce chicken version incorporates mushroom for an equally delicious and loved take on the famous dish.

1292. Psyllium Seed Bread

I am usually adverse to recipes calling for unique or out-of-the-way ingredients that will likely be used once and then forgotten. An exception was made here, firstly because of the virtuousness and health benefits of psyllium husk, and secondly because this health bread is so good I plan to make it a staple made on repeat to always be available in the freezer, sliced and ready to go.

1291. Sugar Cream Pie

Another pie request from little humans, this time for a "milk pie". The fact that milk got swapped out from cream and sugar was close enough to the initial request, and generated no objections from young nor old.

1290. Swiss Mushroom Sliders

I am enjoying how simple and pleasurable warm sandwiches can be of late. Here is a Swiss mushroom variation combining a seasoned beef mince with mushroom and a delicious amount of melty cheese.

1289. Pistachio Petit Four Cakes

These should be renamed to Ultimate Pistachio Petit Four Cakes. It is so concentrated in pistachio flavor, yet has such a delicate crumb, that although one biteful should theoretically suffice, you will find yourself popping one after the other. The secret?
