French Laof

Asalam wa alikum

So as you know i`m not really one for baking ... but when a good recipe comes my way i must tell you about it

I have had this recipe for a while and never got around to trying it so as i was making my muffin bread i thought let me try this one ... Its a french loaf and so simple and easy

2 cups of water (warm)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp of yeast instant
2 tbsp of salt ... i felt it was a bit too much so i reduced it to 1
2 tbsp of oil (veg)

5 cups of flour

mix well and knead dough then allow to rise

punch back the dough then place on a tray

allow to rise again and place in a hot oven

it takes about 20 mins or so and masha`allah what a lovely bread

we toasted it and had butter and jam for breakfeast

enjoy and let me know how it works out


  1. I have a hard time believing that you aren't a good baker when you can work with yeast! MashAllah :)

  2. awww jazak`allah khair .... but believe me i`m not .... i just give it a good bit of the old elbow grease lol

  3. Asalamu alaikum,

    Thank you for sharing a wonderful post. I have a special message for you posted today, hope you like.

    Take Care.

    1. awww masha`allah sis and jazak`allah khair for your comment and masha`allah on your post it`s so sweet

  4. I am new to developing web sites and I was wondering if having
    your blog title related to your content really that important?
    I see your title, "Blogger: Passing Through This Life " does appear to be spot on with what your website is about yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around
    site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. when i first choose to name my blog passing through this life ... it was exactly what i wanted..... as a muslim we believe that we are just passing through this life so with that and my daily life i thought what a good name

      i had a look at your blog and it`s all about candles and the name brand is canyon so i think the way you place the name of your blog is fine .... for me i thing i would have gone with Canyon (lights up your life)or you could say instead of life put home

      i hope i was of some help ... and thank you for dropping by my blog

  5. This looks yummy ma sha Allah! Bookmarked for when I'm feeling the baking-vibe in sha Allah!

  10. Newest Follower, Hope you had a great Eid.

  11. awww jazak`allah khair sis ... yes indeed we did ... jazk`allah khair... insha`allah you did too

  12. Assalam aleikum! I read your (entire) blog today. I thougt about what you wrote on Ramadan. We did the same thing this year. We usually keep it simple but this year we thougt even more about not cooking to much, and NO cakes everyday. On thing that has made a huge difference is how we do our prayers. Me and husband live in Sweden with two children, 10 and 12. Me and the children where born her. Since the beginning of the year we encouraged the children to pray at least once a day. They had some difficulties because of the language. But in spring we are praying all prayers jama (together) if we are at home together. It has strengten our iman and our family and we naturally talk more about islam (how to live a good life islamically)/ Wa salam Um Jaad

    1. wa alikum asalam umm jaad

      wow the whole blog ... jazak`allah khair sis for taking the time in doing so ... i hope you enjoyed it

      yes indeed we too concentrated on salat too .... it great to teach the kids form a young age and insha`allah sis your kids will be the biggest reward for you in the next life because of this teaching

  13. I am so hungry and this looks absolutely delicious, masha'allah!

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup

my first post

So after reading so many different blogs and having friends with their blogs I thought I would give this a try , I will just write about my life in general what I do with my kids  , i`m not sure if it will be any  interesting , but hopefully you will enjoy it
