The Best Thing That Happened To Me In 2012 … So Far

And it comes in a jar.

It’s a butter … that is made out of …. Wait for it … waiiiit for it … COOKIES!!!!!

It’s Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter.

Heaven in a jar

Who thinks these things up? How crazy is that? Someone sat there and thought, hmmmm, I am going to take some cookies, ground them up and make them into butter because hey, life NEEDS spreadable cookies.

To the person who invented cookie butter, will you marry me?

It is sooo delicious it’s not even funny.


Urgent World Wide Search

I have lost something dear to me and I am announcing here on the internet in hopes that SOMEONE out there will find it.

I am so sad by this loss and honestly horrified at the idea of never finding it. Honestly I just want to cry right now.

When you have something that was with you since your teenage years and then suddenly you wake up one morning with no warning and it just …poof… disappears; it will mortify you.

Can you please help me by putting the word out there in hopes someone sees it?

I lost…



I lost …..


I lost my waist …. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

WTF waist? Where the eff did you go?  Seriously, this is NOT funny!

You think it’s sooooooooo funny that you just decided to just…DISAPPEAR!!!!!

Not cool and NOT FUNNY.

Is it the donuts that upset you? Those Tim Hortons Honey Crullers that I JUST discovered, seriously I have been in Canada for 10 years and I JUST discovered them, they are like a donut cloud that melts in your mouth. Is it because they are the most fattening donut Timmys has? IS IT? I will leave them if you promise to come back.

Or is it all those cotton candy I am having that they JUST STARTED selling at the store IN A BUCKET!!! Yes IN A BUCKET. Ahhhh, now that is just amazing.  IS IT? For you I will abandon them.

Or, or , please don’t say its the Chilli fries that I LOVE, please don’t let me leave them.. PLEAAAAAAAASE.  Are they? I will also leave them to win you back.

Waist, I miss you.

Do you know what happened since you left? I now sometimes have a little teeeeeeny tiny muffin top. WAAAAAAH.

Please come back (name that song).

Love you,

7aki’s muffin top.

PS:  They say the best part of the muffin is the top so if you decide not to come back then, psshhhhh, WHO NEEDS YOU.

PPS: Also, it seems my butt has transferred to my muffin top too, waaaaaaaaaaaaaah.


7amleh Guide for Imbeciles

Somebody on the blogosphere has blasphemed (via twitter) and asked me ” What is 7amleh? Do you mean la7meh?”

Where I promptly replied: @Imbecile no I mean 7amleh. Don’t tell me you have never had 7amleh!!!!! OMG someone has to feed Imbecile 7amleh.

And he asked me to : “Put the recipe on my blog


For those who don’t know what 7amleh is , it’s fire roasted raw chickpeas still in their shell. It has the most amazing nutty flavor.

7amleh is sold in the summer at every street corner in Amman, it’s usually sold by the bunch.

It's raw fire roasted chickpeas

It's raw fire roasted chickpeas

To eat 7amleh you have to unshell it and eat the chickpea inside.

The best thing about eating 7amleh is how your fingers turn black because you can’t and won’t stop eating them until you eat a whole bunch if not more.

Yummmooooo I NEEEEEEED some.

OH MY GOD!!!!!! I JUST HAD A REVELATION. My sister is coming to visit in 10 days and I am SOOOOOOOOOO gonna ask her to bring me some .

I just hope they don’t apprehend her at the airport if they do a luggage check. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Baby Food Tastes SOOOOOOOOO Good!

Honest to God baby food tastes soooooo good.

I have been steaming veggies for peanut and adding nothing to them, just steaming them and then blending them, with a hand blender, speaking of hand blenders: I want to hug , kiss, marry and worship whoever invented them.

Hand blender creator inventor, will you marry me? I really love you.

But I digress…

Real vegetables that were untouched by butter or oil or salt which were steamed, meaning all the goodness is still in them and they have not been boiled to hell, taste sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good.

I never thought I would say it but fresh bought vegetables that were steamed are better than butter, yes I said it, better than BUTTER.

I can’t believe I fed little 7aki when she was a baby the jarred shit! I mean I used to cringe when I opened the jars for her so NEVER AGAIN. I WILL NOT buy jarred food for peanut, I WILL NOT I SAID and I will keep saying it until I burst. I WILL NOT BUY JARRED FOOD FOR PEANUT. Even if I am up at midnight steaming food and freezing it I WILL NOT buy the jarred grossness so help me God ( Or higher being) .

Another thing I want to add, Avocados, will you marry me?

The Thing I Miss the Most about Living in Jordan

I never thought I would say this but there is one thing you can’t find here in Canada that you can find in Jordan and the Middle East.

Galaxy chocolate.

When baba 7aki went to Dubai it was the first thing I asked him to get me. I said:” I NEEEEEEED galaxy”

And baba 7aki delivered.

Behold the galaxy:

Yes, it says 24. 24 bars that is.

Yes, it says 24.

Little 7aki Mistifies Me!

Little 7aki LOVES to eat the following:

1) Shrimp. Yes, shrimp. She would eat pounds of it if I let her.


2) Spinach. Which some adults don’ t even want to smell.


3) Brie cheese. Like , helloooooooo, who LIKES Brie cheese? Most people hate it. ( I love it)


4) Ask her what’s your favorite vegtable and she will answer in a heart beat: Cauliflower



But tell her to taste a tomatoe and she will look at it as if it was the devil.


My Hello Kitty Obsession

Since I was a kid I LOVED hello kitty and still do!

I was in Toronto in Mid January and found a beautiful hello kitty necklace. Little 7aki saw it and said”Wow this is pretty is it for me?” I was like “Nooooooooooooooooooo. This is Mommy’s,  but you can borrow it .” Heheheh.

I wish I could take a picture and show you but me no have the camera. The camera is in Dubai. but it looks something like this but more blingy:


Another thing I am addicted to, kinder surprise, she is not allowed to play with my collection, YES I have a collection and it a  big collection and she’s not allowed to touch it. I tell her ” Get your own” HAHAHAHAHHAAHA.

Sigh. Will I ever grow up?
