  • Honey Glazed Shrimps and Asian coleslaw on a plate.
    Today I am really excited to introduce my blogger friend, Reem.  She is the cook-baker-photographer-author behind this beautiful blog Simply Reem.  I vividly remember my first thoughts when I first visited her blog: “Wow, I want to see the inside of this person’s home.  It must be beautiful.”

    From her beautiful photography of food and food styling, I dreamed about what her real life must be like in Southern California.  In her gorgeous photos, she often uses my favorite colors for props and backdrops – shades of cyan such as turquoise and aquamarine… I assume her house is surrounded by all these beautiful colors.

    A couple of weeks ago she told me she wanted to write a post on her blog which is dedicated for me because I helped her with her blog in the past (it was such a small thing that I wouldn’t even call help).  She said she would cook something that I like and write a recipe for the blog.  I felt very touched by her kind thought and at the same time I felt honored. 

    So I invited her today to share her recipes with my readers.  Blogging takes a lot of effort and time, but in return, I get to meet really cool friends like Reem.  I’m really blessed to have met her, and she’s a really genuinely nice friend.  Because of blogging, I have met wonderful fellow bloggers and you, my dear readers.  I just want to take a moment to thank you for coming to read my post today.

    And now without further ado, please welcome Reem from Simply Reem with her 3 delicious recipes!  Thank you Reem for the wonderful post and being a great friend.

    And to finish our meal, I want to share a beautiful recipe of “Yogurt and Semolina Syrup Cake with Rose Water” from the wonderful cookbook Falling Cloudberries by Tessa Kiros. This cake is not an ordinary cake but a rich dense cake with amazing flavor and fragrance of roses. It literary melts in your mouth. If you don’t want rose water, you can use lime/lemon juice in its place or just plain vanilla extract. This recipe is really very versatile and easy.

    I hope you will try these recipes and enjoy them.

    Dressing for coleslaw:
    [Yogurt and Semolina Syrup Cake with Rose Water]
    • 9 Tbsp unsalted butter (softened)
    • 1 cup sugar (superfine sugar)
    • 1 cup plain yogurt
    • 1 Tbsp rose water
    • 3 large eggs (separated)
    • ½ tsp lime zest
    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 cup fine semolina
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • ½ cup ground almond
    Rose water syrup:
    • 1 cup sugar (superfine sugar)
    • 1 tsp rose water
    • 1 cup water
    Instructions
    [Instructions for Honey Glazed Shrimps]
    1. Mix all the ingredients except shrimps and scallions to make the marinade.
    2. Wash and thoroughly pat dry the shrimps. Marinate the shrimps in the prepared marinade for at least 30 minutes, for the flavor to develop properly. You can marinate this overnight if you want.
    3. When ready to cook, heat a non-stick pan and add 1 tsp of oil. Once the oil is well heated add the shrimps and stir-fry for 4-6 minutes. Keep stirring/tossing the shrimps while frying.
    4. Finally add the chopped scallions, give a last quick toss.
    5. Serve hot with lime wedges on side.
    6. If you want you can also grill these shrimps, just add them on skewers along with scallions, grill on each side for 2-3 minutes. Enjoy.
    [Instructions for Asian Coleslaw]
    1. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing except the sesame seeds, cover and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
    2. On a dry heated pan slightly toast the sesame seeds until they just start to change the color; about a minute or 2. Keep stirring the seeds to avoid them from burning. Once done remove the seeds from the pan immediately and keep aside.
    3. Prepare the vegetables.
    4. When ready to make, toss the vegetable into the dressing. Toss well. Sprinkle the toasted seeds on the salad and give a final quick toss. Serve immediately.
    [Instructions for Yogurt and Semolina Syrup Cake with Rose Water]
    1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9-inch square cake pan (I used 2 medium size loaf pan).
    2. Cream the butter and the sugar together. Whisk in the yogurt, rose water, egg yolks and lime zest. Stir in the flour, semolina and baking powder and mix well to incorporate. Mix the ground almonds.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are white, fluffy and just making soft peaks. Carefully fold these into the mixture so that they are well incorporated.
    4. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until the cake is deep golden brown and cooked through. Let cool while making the syrup.
    5. To make the syrup, put the sugar, rose water and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and boil for about 5 minutes. Pour the hot syrup over the cake and let it cool completely (2-3 hours).
    6. To serve, cut the cake in small pieces and serve with a not too sweet ice cream. { I enjoy this cake just by itself!!! }
