Grilled Corn

Summer has come to Egypt. And what a perfect stroll in the night with busy streets full of cars and people specially on thursday and friday nights. While strolling with the family we bumped into this woman vendor who was grilling corn along the way and I asked for 5 .Incidentally, did you know that corn is packed with health benefits ? Despite the lack of green, it really is a healthy veggie.  Here are just one reason to enjoy those tasty niblets:

Corn is a great source of fiber

One cup of corn provides 18.4% of the daily recommend intake of fiber.  Fiber has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels and to help reduce the risk of colon cancer. Fiber is also useful in helping to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics.  Besides that, fiber keeps the digestive system regular.
So I hope you’ll fire up the grill and keep your body happy with this wonderfully tasty dish.  It’s freshness  and health benefits are sure to make you holler… This is SO yummilicious!

 In Native American Usage , the word for corn means " our life " or " our mother " or
" she who sustain us " .:)

Macaroni Bechamel with ground beef

Macaroni Bechamel with ground beef
Here i added one egg on the surface of the bechamel to give some crispy taste on :)


1 box penne pasta
1 lb ground beef
1 onion (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
2 cups blended tomato (i pulse it 2 times only)
1 egg (beaten)
1 dash parmesan cheese (optional)

8 cups milk (cold)(I use 4 milk/4 water)
6 tbsps butter/oil
6 tbsps flour
1 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1 beaten eggs + 1 for the surface
black pepper


Prepare pasta according to directions on the box. 2 Saute the onion in a little oil over med high heat until soft. Add garlic and saute another 2 minutes. Add the ground beef and brown. Drain off the fat. Stir in the tomato and simmer over low heat about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool. Set aside.


In a large saucepan over med-high heat, melt the butter or oil. Once melted whisk in the flour until smooth. Keep whisking for 2 minute. Now whisk in the milk slowly until all the milk has been added. Keep whisking making sure there are no lumps in it. Add the salt and black peppers to your taste. Whisk pretty continuously until the milk is almost boiling, but not quite. Now whisk in the nutmeg (if you want it). The sauce should now be fairly thick. Quickly whisk in the beaten eggs. Remove from heat.


Mix half the bachamel mixture into the pasta. Put half the pasta covered with the sauce into a 9x13 baking pan. Now layer the entire meat mixture over the pasta. You can top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese if you like. Now add the rest of the Pasta to form the top layer. Finally, pour and spread the remaining bachamel sauce over the top of the last layer adding one or two beaten egg on the surface. Bake it in the oven at 400 degrees for 45-60 min or until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!

Cut out the stems, remove the seeds, and mix sweet and tart apples for the best fresh juice taste. Juicing the peel will greatly increase the antioxidant of the juice. The peels and skins of fruits and vegetables are where you will find the majority of antioxidants. This is their protection against oxidative damage as a result of sun exposure. Flavonoids are the type of antioxidant found most abundantly in apples and their peel.

Kiwi fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, helping to keep our immune system strong and our skin firm. Vitamin C is needed to create collagen, the elasticated sticky substance that binds our skin cells together and keps the skin looking young.

Vitamin A is the nutrient most associated with eye health (and carrots) and is actually one of the most important nutrients for eyes.

Vitamin C and E don’t have as high a profile as vitamin A for eye health, but they also play an important role in the well being of our eyes. Like blackberries, apples and Kiwi.

1 red apple
1 green apple
1 kiwi
2 small pears
1 cup fresh pineapple, cubed, skin removed
1 carrot
couple of blackberries
! Cantaloupe (remove skin)

My juicer cannot used hard skin fruits :)
Peel, juice, add some ice cubes enjoy !
