Corn on a Charcoal Grill

corn-on-charcoal

If you’re planning a barbecue gathering for the weekend add “Corn on the Cob” to your menu list. 

It’s simple, easy and delicious.

Place them naked on the charcoal grill and flip on each side until all sides are cooked well. 

Don’t overcook, so you can feel the juices squeezing out. 

I love to serve them with a dressing of lemon, oil, salt and fresh chopped coriander. Just delicious :) 

Let me know how it goes. 

Figs Jam (Mrabbah Al-teen)

An easy and quick homemade jam to make this season!
It famous in Lebanon with roasted sesame seeds. It makes a wonderful treat with bicuits or arabic bread and butter :) Sometimes served topped with walnuts.

Take Your Summer BBQ to the Next Level with These Great Apps

You’re probably more grateful for your phone in the short moments that you find yourself idle, like when you’re riding public transportation, waiting for the bus, or, well, standing in front of the grill while waiting for your barbeque to finish. But did you know that your phone could actually help you throw the perfect summer BBQ?

It shouldn’t really come as a surprise. Around this time last year, Google announced that they finally hit 1 million apps in the Play Store, and Apple soon followed suit. Gaming Realms, who won Best Boutique Bingo Site for their mobile gaming website Iceland Bingo in 2013, also estimates that by 2015, the mobile market will be worth upwards of $4 billion. There are apps for everything out there, and even the most experienced pit master will find a useful app that can help them turn out beautifully grilled or barbequed steaks every time.

1. Weber’s On the Grill App

People often have their own specialties on the grill, but you can have too much of a good thing. If you often end up making the same thing at your barbeques, then the On the Grill app just might help you. With over 250 recipes for full meals and even rubs, sauces and marinades, an ingredient check-list, and a timer, the On the Grill app has just about everything.

2. The Pit Pal BBQ App

Dubbed by the USA Today as “one of the 10 best apps for Dad”, Pit Pal BBQ has everything anyone working with a grill could ever need. By tracking different variables from each cook, the app lets experienced grillers adjust these variables in order to come up with the best results. The best part? It’s also compatible with the BBQ Guru CyberQ Wifi and Stoker WiFi, so you can monitor your temperatures and smoke levels on your phone too!

3. iGrill

Although not an app per se, the iGrill is perhaps the key to handless grilling. Just insert the probe into the steak you’re grilling, allow the device to connect to your iPhone, and let your phone tell you when you steak is done. You’re then free to enjoy the rest of your party, talk to your guests, and maybe enjoy a few beers! The app is also available on Android devices!

It’s Apricot Season

It’s apricot season! So let’s get moving with the jams :)

Many of us think that jams preparation at home is quite an exhuasting job. Actually it’s quite simple and fun. We have posted previously the detailed steps along with pictures for you to visualize the steps.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

A 1 year stock of ice cream!

I participated in Taanayel Les Fermes Facebook Sweepstake last month and guess what!?

I won a bag full of flavored ice cream. The entire office tasted them and still I can eat ice cream the whole year :)

Have a look…
