Fruits in Season: Mulberries or ” Toot” Three-Ways

I don’t really know why, but there’s something comforting about going to the market only to find fruits and vegetables that are newly in season. It must be because I’m a person who embraces change and who’s always ready to move on to the next step, refusing to sink into the same routine for too long. Little changes are thus welcomed, an example being cooking or baking with fresh fruits and vegetables.

One fruit in season this month is the Mulberry fruit or “Toot”. Mulberries are full of benefits. Packed with all kinds of vitamins and iron, they give your body energy and good health. They have the power to prevent a number of diseases and health problems, so next time you’re in the supermarket, don’t think twice and get that pack of mulberries. If you happen to live or work in Ashrafieh, you can also buy your mulberries from a man who gets them everyday from Tyre and sells them in front of Supermarket Ashrafieh.

Here are 3 ways to have mulberries:

1) As they are, or with yogurt as an afternoon snack.

2) In your morning or afternoon smoothie. You can find a delicious Mulberry Smoothie recipe here.

Any other ways to have mulberries? I’d love to hear!

The Ingredient That Will Make Your Cheese and Wine Complete

If you’re a fan of entertaining, you must spend a big part of your winter planning cheese and wine parties. You have a checklist with the different wines you want to get, the different cheeses you want to try out and that bread from the best bakery in town (you can check out the best wine and food pairings here). You think you have everything but when your guests arrive you realize something is missing: good music that suits this warm and welcoming party!

A big part of entertaining is the atmosphere and general mood you set to your living and dining rooms. Along with many other elements like candles, lighting and overall décor, nice music is a must when you’re looking to create a fun and engaging atmosphere in which everyone is happy and at ease. The season of Cheese and Wine parties has officially started and I thought it was time for me to compile this Cheese and Wine playlist for those wonderfully warm evenings. I’ve put in a little bit of everything to please all tastes. You can also listen to this while you’re setting up the food.
