Rosewater (or rose syrup) is made from the crushed petals of roses, and lends a lovely distinctive floral touch to custards, puddings, pancakes, scones, cookies, pastries, marzipan, ice cream, lassis, and pilaus, and even to sparkling wines or champagne! A little accent of roses goes a long way, so don't overdo!
Basically a Greek butterball cookie recipe. These, with Melomakarona, are found in every Greek home during the Christmas Holidays. I go through phases. One year, or for a couple of years, these are my favourites, then Melomakarona are, and I keep switching back and forth. They're both wonderful! These keep wonderfully, long after Christmas is over, if any are left.
from Chamomiletimes.com. The amazing thing about this sugar cookie is that it requires no chill time but is still easy to handle. Rose water is available in most stores catering to the middle eastern community.
This is the first dish I learnt as an adult and still it is my speciality... there's only one word to describe it... yum! When I'm cooking this for my husband and myself, I usually remove the legs whole, sprinkle them with spices and brown under grill, and then add the remaining chicken to the rice as per instructions.
Sifting through my recipe box files for Zaar World Tour 2005, I was surprised to discover that I’ve saved three different recipe articles on Moroccan Cuisine over the years. All from my old favourite; the Sainsbury’s magazine. This one has been lurking un-tested since July 2001. Time to give it an airing! Cooking time is resting time.
Scented yoghurt drink from India. Great served with curries. Very smooth and refreshing in a hot climate.
It has a very cooling effect on the mouth.
You can make mango lhassi by blending in mango pieces with the yogurt or try it with different fruits or spices.

Not so much a "recipe" but I make this at least once a week in the summer-if not more often. (I don't even bother peeling the melons or orange.) One of my favorite ways to serve fresh fruit! Recently discovered Temptation melon is really good in this recipe! If I have any raspberries, marionberries, blueberries, blackberries available, I'll throw in a handful of those, too!
These delicious lavender cookies are a real treat--perfect for tea-time, or for serving out on the veranda with a pitcher of ice-cold lemonade! From The Spice House. Note: Icing amount as written is very generous for these cookies, feel free to reduce to one half or one quarter the recipe, as you like.
