The Ultimate Labneh Sandwich

The Ultimate Labneh Sandwich
"How to make a Labneh sandwich?". "How to eat Labne?". "What is Labni?". These are few of the google search results that I get on my blog everyday. The majority of my audience is not from the Middle East, so they read or hear about Labneh, but they just don't know how to eat it. I previously told you that I make my own organic 2% fat yogurt (read about it here), then I use the yogurt to make organic Labneh (read about it here), and I also use the by product whey to make Organic Cheese (Read about it here).  However, I want to cover an uber important issue, how to make the ultimate Labneh sandwich. The variations are endless, but this is how I like to make my sandwich and I am going to tell you the ultimate secret behind rolling a good old Middle Eastern Sandwich.

Edible Love Letters: Valentine's Day Decorated Sugar Cookies

Valentine's day these days is all about flowers, gifts and candy but what about the art of putting your feelings into words! I decided to make these adorable and romantic edible love letters for Alya's Preschool Valentine's Party. I thought it could be very cute to make these cookies for a bunch of preschoolers who are just learning how to read, let alone write!

Valentine's Day Handmade Popup Card

Hello? Anybody there? I don't blame you if gave up on me. My last post was on November 2013! Valentines's Day is next week! I am sorry for this hiatus, but I really had little opportunities to blog. I wish I can tell you that I was somewhere in Africa helping building water wells and where there is no internet access, but this is not the case. I was on a very long vacation. Actually it is more like a series of vacations. Well, now that we sorted out this, let us move to critical issues: Valentine's Day!

I am not big on Valentine's Day, never been actually. I don't need to be reminded to love and be loved, on a specific day, set by greeting card companies, florists and chocolate makers. However, I noticed that here in the states, the trend in schools is that Valentine's Day is a day of friendship and love.
