ALEXANDRIA "The place where I live"!!!


Actually I can not be a tourist guide even I can not tell you a lot about Alexandria , the city where I live , so I copied and pasted" what a shame" some information about this lovely city.
Alexandria is The second largest city in Egypt, Alexandria, known as "The Pearl of the Mediterranean", has an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern ; its ambiance and cultural heritage distance it from the rest of the country although it is actually only 225 km. from Cairo. Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria became the capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt, its status as a beacon of culture symbolized by Pharaohs, the legendary lighthouse that was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The setting for the stormy relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony, Alexandria was also the center of learning in the ancient world. But ancient Alexandria declined, and when Napoleon landed, he found a sparsely populated fishing village.From the 19Th century Alexandria took a new role, as a focus for Egypt's commercial and maritime expansion. This Alexandria has been immortalized by writers such as E-M- Forster and Cavafy. Generations of immigrants from Greece, Italy and the Levant settled here and made the city synonymous with commerce, cosmopolitanism and bohemian culture.
Alexandria is a city to explore at random. It's as important to enjoy the atmosphere as it is to see the sights.


-Here you are some pics from Alexandria:-










Cakes' festival!!!

Hello dear friends...I missed you so much, but my only excuse is that " I was ill" , now , I am o.k.
My classmates asked me to do something sweet for them , every time we attend our computer class, they keep watching my cakes , they need now to taste!!!
So I made for them two cakes , actually , the batter is the same,but adding some touches and changing in moulds shapes made them totally different, here you are my main recipe:- 1 cup butter"room temp."
-1 3/4 cup of sugar.
-4 good eggs.
-3 cups cake's flour.
-1 baking powder sachet.
-1 cup of milk.
-vanilla or some orange zest.
Beat the butter very well add sugar and beat till light and fluffy, add the eggs one by one then add your vanilla essence, beat well after each addition.
Add the sifted flour+baking powder alternately with the milk, mix well but do not over mix.
It is ready now for the moulds, or you can change a little bit by taking half of the batter and adding to it 2 TBLS cacao powder +2 TBLS milk, and pour the two kind of batter alternately in the moulds , you can use food colour and flavors, it is up to your imagination, let's have a look on the pics.

My kids sandwiches bread!!!!

I enjoy baking bread for my kids to take with them at school, Every weekend , I try to bake good quantity so we don't have to need buying bread from the market, sometimes , I can't provide the whole quantity sometimes because of the time, sometimes I am ill, but I try to do my best. They prefer our home made bread.

Tomorrow , I have to go on and make some bread also , I have to test Mr.peter Reinhart 's bagels, so pray for me.
