A little about me...

Following the tag my friends started, here is a little about me. I'm Palestinian who was born and raised in Amman, Jordan. I have been married for 8.5 years, and I have two beautiful girls (7 and 4 years old). I moved to US with my husband few days after the wedding. My husband and the girls are the best thing happened to me ever.

Right now, I'm working on my PhD in Industrial Engineering. I'm supposed to finish soon, YEAH, I hope soon :) During my spare time, I like to do shopping, try new recipes, redecorate my house, and to hang out with friends.

OK, what else? I like dark chocolate, Mocha, bright colors, and colorful hijabs. I also love shopping, and shopping for makeup, clothes, shoes, and handbags is my favorite :)

I guess that's it. I hope this post helped to get you know more about me.

Take care.



Hello everyone,

I'm back! I couldn't post last week because I was really busy. I'm trying to keep up with my blog but sometimes I really can't. I got too many things going on.

Anyway, I'm back today with an easy recipe. Very easy and delicious! Couple of weeks ago I posted the Barazek recipe, and as you all know (or at least some of you), Barazek always come with
Ghraybeh. They are both butter-based cookies, very light, and really good.


2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
pistachios (you will need 1 pistachio for each cookie)


  • Beat butter and sugar with a mixer. You can just mix them with your hand since the butter is soft. Add flour gradually and work out to form smooth dough.
  • Put the dough in the fridge for 15 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Form small sized balls from the dough and place them on a baking sheet (leaving space between them).

  • Press one pistachio in the middle of each ball forming a small cookie. Be careful, you don't need to press them too much. You can also make any shape you want, like S-shape, ... .

  • Bake in the preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. You don't want them to turn gold, you want them to keep their white color.
