Reader feedback and appreciation has been a phenomenal plus that is almost overwhelming.
Dr. B, a PhD living in Canada is a scientist by day and culinary adventuress by night.
The fact that she makes time to try and make new things is inspiring.
Dr. B was kind enough to take the time to send me photos of the recipes she has made from MCW.
If you've got picture you want to share, send them over to maryamcw(at)yahoo(dot)com.
Here are some photos of recipes she has re-created from MCW.

Here is the truth right from the beginning: this dessert looks better than it tastes.
That's not to say it isn't good. It is, but just not as good as you would imagine by looking at it.
It looks like it's a classy and elegant dessert for grown-ups.
In reality, it's a sugar bomb favored by kids.

I am hesitant in applying the word healthy to a recipe, because more often than not, the correlation is usually a negative one. Healthy food is sometimes and wrongfully assumed as boring and tasteless.
Not so, and the proof is in the pudding... or in this case, in the ice cream.

Even within the Arab nations, there is some confusion as to what a kebab is and what a kofta is. Kofta, not used by all, is always a minced meat sort of patty, be it longitudinal or circular. Kebabs however are sometimes used interchangeably with kofta, but really they denote skewered chunks of meat.

Okay, this is my version of the famous British dessert named Eton Mess. Except that I don't find it particularly appealing to eat something labeled as a mess, so I Arab-ized the dessert and also replaced the term mess with dessert.
