Kibbe Dramatic: Hijabi Edition!

Dramatics are diametrically opposed to Romantics. If you’re a Dramatic, be it pure or soft, you are characterized by angularity, sharpness, strong features, an evident skeleton, which, unlike Naturals, isn’t necessarily draped in abundant musculature. This isn’t to say you must be thin, what stands out is the length of the bones, especially the limbs, and the sharpness of the facial features, regardless of weight. … Continue reading Kibbe Dramatic: Hijabi Edition!

Walk inthe Shoes of a Refugee With Emy Battuta

View this post on Instagram From my poem, "Remember Me" When a child weeps on stubborn ears when the last step falls on a fissured earth when the bombs cost less and less and the people too remember me remind me that I do not walk alone.

The version I offer here is keto-friendly, if you’re interested in the traditional, not so keto version, … Continue reading Keto Spice Eid Cookies (Zimtsterne)

Eid Wreath

This year we made another Eid wreath, just because I’ve been thinking of making this for months, and was waiting for Ramadan to get going. The kids rolled up their sleeves and did their own version, which I think came out quite nice. So here you’ll find two different wreaths made simultaneously, with a slightly different emphasis. What you’ll need: a few empty egg cartons … Continue reading Eid Wreath

Tirol Cookies for Ramadan/Eid

I normally bake and prepare a combination of Libyan, North American, Middle Eastern, and at times European sweets.

You give an aura of athleticism, whether you’re tall or … Continue reading Kibbe Natural: Hijabi Edition
