Another Qalb El Louz or is it?

Well today is tuesday and my top tip is....always go with your gut instinct when adapting a recipe not his!

I must say it's the best looking Qalb El Louz i've made yet but it wasn't Qalb El Louz as dh knows and loves it!

It all started when my dh (dear husband) mentioned the qalb el louz here was tasty, the right texture but too thick! mmmm i was upset but kind of understand why he had said that because i used a smaller baking dish as my old 'special' qalb el louz tin i kind of scrapped earlier this year, it now sits at the bottom of my oven as a steamer for whenever i bake bread i fill it with water, needless to say it's not in the best of states and i was in no mood for scrubbing it whilst fasting. I ended up using my silicone bakeware which is soooo easy to clean but results were too thick!

Sooo while my other specialised baking tray was winging it's way in the post, dh couldn't wait a day or two and i had to make Qalb El Louz again, only this time he said use this tray pulling out of the kitchen cupboard my one and only HUGE non stick roasting tin....yeh errm this isn't going to work i said it will be too thin but the man gets what the man wants lol needless to say my qalb el louz pictured above, not only was super thin but it was well and truly roasted, tasting nice alot like algerian tamina which is delicious in it's own right, but not what I was aiming for.

I wonder next time inshAllah i can finally get it right, me wants to wait while next Ramadan to find out but i wonder is dh going to let me off the hook for a whole year, me thinks not!

Yesterday we had another confession, he is not so keen on cupcakes lol we were watching cupcake wars at the time, "not yours" he said (digging his way out of the hole) "but in general they are not all that" What do you think?

My husband is not really a sweet person what so ever. He will have a slice of chocolate cake or apple pie but that tends to be it. If I make cupcakes I make a small batch (3-6) just for Talal and I and sometimes I feel that even that's to much so its not often I make them. I try to not make many sweets at all bc I know they will not get ate and I just do enough for 1 or 2 if I do.

My husband is so into sweet! He doesn't care is if it's burnt, dry or undone as long as it is very sweet. Chocolate, cupcakes, baklava you name it he would go for anything! The only disadvantage is that he likes it very very sweet which I consider unhealthy...and He's not into apple pies because in His opinion they are sour any time I make apple pies I have to add extra frcutose! and if I say extra for my husband that really means extra! :D I'm completely different I like sweets when I'm in the mood of sweet :)

My husband is not big on sweets. But he loves his Moroccan sweets as it reminds him of home and its the only proper thing to have with Moroccan tea.
So when we have sweets in the house or chocolate i usually eat it by myself. Its funny sometimes his mood changes and he will eat all the cakes, and cookies i make. Subhanallah.
