We bake our own breads and they are much more tastier and healthier than the ones from the grocery stores or the local bakeries.
And I love the aroma of freshly baked breads.
My mother bakes all kinds of breads and one of them is Cinnamon Bread.
Cinnamon Bread is very tasty and it is tastier if we toast the bread and eat them with butter and cinnamon sugar.
It is beautiful too because it have swirls in the middle of the loaf.
Anyway, even though I love cinnamons and I enjoy eating Cinnamon Bread, I actually prefer the whole wheat bread that I made.
My mother taught me how to make the whole wheat bread named, The Grant Loaf because it is one of the easiest bread to make 🙂
Apart from Cinnamon Bread, my mother also made Cinnamon Buns for us to enjoy.

Chapati is an Indian bread.
It is a healthy food because we use atta flour to make the chapati.
My mother add some butter and salt to the flour so the chapati tastes delicious even on its own.
I love to eat chapati.
We can eat chapati for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
To make chapati, we need:
A big bowl of atta flour
Some plain water
A little bit of salt
You can add 2 table spoons of butter but do not use margarine because margarine has trans fat that is very bad for our health. (Please click here for my post on ‘Good Fats And Bad Fats’)
How to make Chapati:
First we mix the flour and butter (it is okay if you do not want to use butter 🙂
Add plain water to the flour to make a nice dough.
Last week my mother bought lots of sweet and juicy ripe strawberries.
She made our favourite strawberry yoghurt drink.
The drink was so tasty.
It is a very healthy drink because the strawberries are rich in vitamin C, fiber, antioxidant and lots of minerals.
Yoghurt has lots of good bacteria called probiotic, minerals and vitamins.
Honey is also a very healthy food.
So when we mix all of them together, they’ll become a very healthy and tasty drink 🙂
Below is the strawberry yoghurt drink recipe.
How to make the tasty drink:
Cut the strawberries and put the strawberries and yoghurt in a blender.
Add the sweet, golden honey.
Add some water or some milk or both.
Blend them until you’ll get a beautiful pink juice.
Serve the drink and enjoy it 🙂
By the way, mom says that you may add some sugar or a pinch of salt to the drink but too much sugar is bad for us.
I think that strawberry yoghurt drink looks as good as its taste.
It will be a nice drink during a hot day as it is in Kuala Lumpur now
I love to eat ful medames or fūl Müdemmis (فول مدمّس).
Ful medames is a very tasty and healthy dish made out of beans.
This dish is actually from Egypt but it is popular in Sudan and Saudi Arabia too.
It is made from fava beans.
We eat ful medames with onion, garlic, tomatoes, olive slices, tahini, lime, olive oil and Arabian flat bread and falafel.
How to cook ful medames:
Cook the fava beans with olive oil and garlic.
When the beans are cooked, mash the beans.
Then, serve the ful.
Add some olive oil before eating our ful.
I also like to eat falafel (فلافل) with ful, so my mother will cook falafel whenever she cooks ful.
