I rarely have a taste for sweets, ditto husband. Exception being the time I tried to give up alcohol, then it came on with a vengeance. Learned from recovered alcoholic and smoker friends that that is very, very common.

I made some really good cinnamon buns last night. I am putting them on my blog tomorrow, but they were yummy!

Today I am making Basbosa with cream. It is a well known dessert in the middle east. It is easy to do and it only takes about 30 min.to prepare and 20 min. in the oven. My kids like to spread a sugar syrup over it. If it turns out well, I will tell you all.

Chocolate chips cookies. I've found a new recipe on a website and I'm going to try it today. If it tuned out well I'm going to post it.

I just realized that I have everything in the house to make a lime pie (can't call it a key lime pie) so in the morning I be baking my brains out. Oh, I can't wait.

I complete the mushroom challenge tonight, so my dessert was made for it. I made Candy Top Mushroom ice cream. It was fabulous!

Today I am making Om Ali. It is a well known mid-eastern dessert made from baked puff pastry, nuts, milk and cream with some sugar. It is usually served hot.

I'm not familiar with Om Ali, so I looked it up in Allrecipes, and found this :

"It's an Egyptian dessert... Legend has it that Om Ali was the first wife of the sultan Ezz El Din Aybek. When the sultan died, his second wife had a dispute with Om Ali, resulting in the second wife's death. To celebrate, Om Ali made this dessert and distributed it among the people of the land."

Food history and legends can be interesting!

Yes, it's very interesting. I heard the same history before.
