In El Eid (Muslim Holiday), our custom consists that every family,

as far as its means allow, sacrifices a sheep. We prepare meals

with  this meat, Tagines , couscous, and grilled as well,

we leave part of  the meat to dry, that what we call "El Gedid".
The meat is marinaded in several spices and dried under the sun,

so that we can eat all year long.


- 3 pounds beef
- 4 Tbs salt
- 6 garlic cloves
- 3 Tbs coriander powder
- 1 Tbs cumin
- a pinch of saffron
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup vinegar



so that the spices are absorbed into the meat

(this helps the meat  from rotting).
Let marinade for at least one hour, hang the meat on a thread,

let dry under the sun all day long, to bring inside for the evening,

then the next day, hang it again under the sun until it is well dried
and its color becomes dark.

To keep El Gedid all year long, honnestly, I have no idea,

because  I never prepare it myself, I asked my mother

who said to me this :
You should not put it in the freezer, it is simply necessary

to cover  it with a white cloth and to put it in a plastic bag,

keep it in a drawer,

to take it out every two months and sun dry it.

There are many, many versions of Basboussa which you find 
in many Arabic countries. I absolutely love this version with
coconut, it's not only easy to make, it's also delicious.

To change a little bit the common cheesecakes,
I added pumpkin purée  which enriched this cake
and added to it a very pleasant flavor.

* 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
* 1 Tbs sugar
* 1/4 cup butter, melted

* 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin purée 
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 1/2 tsp ginger
* 1/2 nutmeg
* 1/4 tsp salt

* 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
* 2 Tbs sugar
* 1 tsp vanilla sugar
* 12-16 nuts or pecan halves
2010-04-21-pumpkin-cake7.jpg2010-04-21-pumpkin-cake4.jpg2010-04-21 pumpkin cake6
Combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar, stir in butter.
Press into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan, and chill.
For filling, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs,
beat just until blended in. Stir in the pumpkin, spices and salt.
Pour into crust. Place pan on a baking sheet,
bake at 350 F for 50 min.
Meanwhile, for topping, combine the sour cream, sugar
and vanilla sugar until smooth. Spread over filling, return
to the oven for 5 min, cool on rack for 10 min. Carefully
run a knife around edge of pan to loosen, cool 1 h longer.
Refrigerate overnight. Remove sides of pan. Garnish each
slice witha walnut (or pecan half). Store in the refrigerator.

preparing them with my daughter 
and especially to decorate them.

at the end of the artcile 
Petits gateaux de Halloween
The recipe is very simple and easy to prepare.

Halloween Cakes  
Petits gateaux de Halloween
As you can see on the picture on the top,
I was inspired by the Halloween towel which my daughter Jenna-Aicha has.

Petits gateaux de Halloween
If you don't have a mold of ghost cakes, 
use a normal cupcake mold.
Petits gateaux de Halloween
It is necessary to let completely cool
before beginning the decoration.

Petits gateaux de Halloween
Once you cover the cakes with the glazing,
It is necessary to let them harden a little before continuing the decoration.

Petits gateaux de Halloween
For the decoration, I used only what
I had in the cupboard. 

Petits gateaux de Halloween
After we finished, guess who was proud of herself? Jenna-Aicha indeed, she was so satisfied that
she told everybody about her art,
even her teacher at school .

Gâteaux aux amandes - Bliga- Gateaux Marocains 

Here are Moroccan cookies with

 almonds and orange-blossom water. 



Gâteaux aux amandes - Bliga- Gateaux Marocains


I used the same dough to prepare
Moroccan slippers "Bligha" and roses, 
These forms exist in Moroccan as well as Algerian pastry,
The dough looks a little bit like "Algerian basket ".
