    A nice change. A different baklava without nuts! Unlike other baklavas, this is best within 2-3 days of making, after which it may get a bit soggy. You probably won’t use all the butter, but it’s always good to have extra rather than not enough. *Samne is an Arabic type of clarified butter similar to the Indian version ghee.

    First for a story, The Mossi of Burkina Faso in Africa will not let their children eat eggs for fear they will become thieves! The idea is not that, he who steals an egg will steal an ox, but because he who steals an egg is stealing a chicken. Poultry lives at large in the villages of Africa, laying eggs anywhere. More seriously, the spirits will be offended, for all the poultry the Mossi eat has first to be sacrificed to the local tutelary spirits. Don't worry that is just one of the many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Ethiopia’s spicy national dish, Doro Wat contains hard-boiled eggs. English influence on South Africa certainly brings them onto the table. Oto (Yams & Eggs) of Ghana is eaten for breakfast on festival mornings. And when it comes to boiling eggs, the biggest problem is that people can easily over-cook them, leading to a dark green color around the yolk, and a somewhat sulfuric taste. This is a method for cooking hard-boiled eggs so that they don't turn out that way.

    Recipe #448365

    This is delicious rice! I adore the barberries in this. This is excellent served with Recipe#427545 or you can add some cooked chicken as you layer the rice. "There are a couple of different ways to make Zereshk Polow. Some folks layer the rice with zereshk (barberries) and steam them together while others simply make a chelow and add the zereshk on top. Personally, I am a fan of the first method as I think that the polow as a whole tastes better. With this said the zereshk changes color in the steaming process and goes from a gorgeous bright ruby red color to a dull brownish color. So at some point I came up with an idea where I hold on to a little bit of the zereshk and sprinkle it on top of the rice when it’s time to serve it." Modified from a recipe found on

    Africa has a long history of banana cultivation. Phytolith discoveries in Cameroon dating to the first millennium BCE triggered an as yet unresolved debate about the date of first cultivation in Africa. There is linguistic evidence that bananas were known in Madagascar around that time. The earliest prior evidence indicates that cultivation dates to no earlier than late 6th century AD. It is likely, however, that bananas were brought at least to Madagascar if not to the East African coast during the phase of Malagasy colonization of the island from South East Asia c400CE. Here we have a simple, healthy drink made with just 1 banana. Idea from The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas N. Graham, a cool raw food book.

    Recipe #443988

    Delicious with rice dishes, particularly spicier ones of Indian style. But my family likes this with Middle Eastern rice dishes as we don't eat very spicy and DH loves a sauce with rice. You may add a squeeze of pomegranate juice from the husks of the seeded pomegranate depending how you remove seeds or add a little pomegranate molasses instead, found in Middle Eastern shops. A note to self, change it up a bit by adding fresh finely chopped mint when using sweet white onion sometimes. Modified from a recipe by Nigella Lawson on
