Dragon Fruit Coconut Creamsicles

It’s that time of month again and I have been invited to join in the challenge by The Food Art Project on Instagram. The theme of the challenge is Popsicles. I had never made popsicles before or shot them and I definitely wanted to think of something that would be worth all the melting stress….

Mido Eats 7th Anniversary

I don’t necessarily believe in lucky numbers but “7” has always been associated with good things (including the seven deadly sins). It’s been seven years since I started my blog and today marks the 7th anniversary of Mido Eats and it’s time to reflect and count some blessings. Don’t worry, I will try to make…

Nespresso Cup Quesillo (Flan)

In an effort to celebrate the limited edition Nicaragua capsule; La Cumplida Refinada, I thought of using this unique Master Origins coffee by Nespresso to create a popular Latin American dessert. I think the most amazing thing about this recipe is that it yields just one serving! So if you are a single, health conscious,…

Shiso Pesto Udon

When I come up with fusion recipes, I like to think beyond adding just one foreign ingredient to a classic dish and calling it fusion cuisine. It needs to be a bit more than that. What other ingredients can be substituted? What do the different cultures of the fusion dish have to offer each other?…

IBD-friendly Salmon Nabe Recipe

I have recently been privileged to take part in the ‘Benheb El Hayaah‘ campaign, which aims to spread awareness about Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis can cause patients to visit the bathroom every half an hour, which prevents them from being able to enjoy life as we do. Today I thought…

Easter Blues

It’s Coptic Easter Sunday and while I never understood why there are two (or maybe even three) different Easter Sundays across various Christian denominations, let me just wish for you and your families to have a happy one. This year I came across an egg coloring recipe that uses natural food colors to dye eggs…

Kunafa French Toast

It is annual tradition for me to work on some Ramadan fusion recipe for you guys to try out. This one combines all the best of the seasons’ flavors with a Western twist. This year, I simply thought of wrapping French toast in Kunafa! French toast can often end up being a flacid, soggy and…

Octopus Black Pasta

Before you ask me for a recipe, it’s really just boiled octopus and boiled pasta.. mainly. Today I wanted to give you some behind the scenes insights from the shoot of this dish. It all started with an inspiration from a stunning photo by the amazing Balabotya on Instagram. After seeing her black pasta and…

It’s annual cliche season, so let’s not make it too boring. This Nespresso cake has a hidden berry center that is shaped like a heart. The only thing you really need to be mindful of, is to cut it the right way! First, the ingredients: For the coffee cake 1/2 shot of your favorite espresso…

J&G Steakhouse

I haven’t written about new restaurants in Egypt in a very long time… And it simply due to the fact that I haven’t found something impressive enough to inspire me. J&G at St. Regis Cairo Hotel has not only changed the lack of inspiration but it has also changed an integral part of my palate….

Panettone Persistence

After giving a 3-minute speech in a selfie video on social media about how nothing can stop you from achieving your goals in 2021, I seem to have inspired myself in the process. This year I wanted to bake and photograph a Panettone. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s an…

Christmas Nespresso Affogato

I think the most generous gift I received this year has to be the Nespresso Gran Lattissima machine! I wanted to bring you guys a recipe that really brings out the flavors of the limited edition Italian festivities capsules without overpowering their delicate aroma. One of my all-time favorites has got to be the Espresso…
