Breakfast recipe: Arugula cheese rolls

Breakfast idea, elvish style: Spread half a teaspoon of Circassian cheese on an arugula leaf, and add a diced avocado. Drizzle virgin olive oil, sprinkle some lemon and salt, and add some black sesame seeds.

Roll and eat.

Enjoy.

Once Upon a Lovely December

Although I’m really not a wintery person, December is always nice because it’s full of feasts. This December was extra special though :)


Kitchenette’s AWESOME calendar


This December, I wore this beautiful embroidered Palestinian dress that my grandmother made for my aunt in the 60s, when my aunt was 14. I love the simplicity of it, and the white fabric. I dropped by to show it to my aunt and grandma before my dinner. I was bequeathed this dress when I was 14 myself (’99), and they forgot all about it. They were so ecstatic!


So excited for 2015, aren’t we?

Control Freak

I think of this blog as therapy, sometimes. It’s as if I can just type in a problematic word, and the unicorns of AndFarAway will magically solve even my most deep-rooted issues.

Today’s issue, my dearest unicorns, is being control freak. Happiness is either having complete control or abdicating completely. There is no happy medium, and that is not very smart.

Now control, I’ve typed you up, go away.

On November

Sheez. It’s the final stretch of 2014 already.

I’ve always wanted to try the famous Circassian dish chebsobasta. Alas, it is traditionally made with chicken, and since I don’t eat chicken, I’ve never had it. Until my friend Sharif’s mom made me shibsobasta without chicken. Goodness me it’s SO DELICIOUS!

November was for reading. Trying to close my target of 50 books a year.
