Basbousa – [Giveaway Closed]


I had different versions of this Arabian delight, some were too sweet other were too hard. The version I’m sharing with you today is quick to make and require no syrup.


I’d like to share an information with you here, if you’re not an Arab then you should know that beautiful woman in Arab countries are referred to as Basbousa,

to express how beautiful and sweet she looks.To me it makes so much sense, if you have Basbousa once, you’d want to have it again and again.

When baking this beauty, your kitchen will smell amazing, you’ll get everyone excited, I guarantee that.

Talking about the smell here, don’t you just hate it when everything in your fridge smell like onion or garlic, I mean even the dessert?

We all at times forget to tightly close that container, or all of a sudden something start to leak and ruin the taste and smell of everything in that fridge.

Now you don’t have to worry. Oransi Ionic Fridge air purifier cleans the air in your refrigerator, keeping it odorless all the time.

I was so excited when I received my Oransi Ionic Fridge air purifier. It is:

Silent. Effective in the removal of odors and bacteria to keep your refrigerator smelling fresh and your food fresher.
Conveniently fits anywhere in your refrigerator.
I have left a slice of onion in the fridge, just so I see if Oransi Ionic Fridge air purifier will really work, and it did. But it can work the same magic if you placed it in your closet or cupboard.
