As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beautiful Sisters!

Being a Muslim has opened my eyes to A WHOLE NEW WORLD outside of the American Devils’ society – behaviours, customs, clothing, cultures, geography, topography, demographics, and FOODS. 😉

I live by The Book HOW TO EAT TO LIVE so, my diet pretty much consists of the same “simple foods.” Which makes so much sense! Our Beloved Messenger (PBUH) wisely taught us that trying to keep up with the devils in all of their new foods and new types of preparing foods, will just get you a new “grave”.

Eating the same simple foods is the best for our health. If you try new foods, or just go down the aisle shopping, you may pick up a food that has pork in it, if you forget to read the label. By eating the same foods, you only have to read the label once and you will not have to worry about it any more. I bear witness. I have been burned many times, trying out new foods. The devil puts pork in foods you would never imagine. I found pork in sunflower seeds! :/ IKR?

Basically, according to HOW TO EAT TO LIVE, our diets should consist of beans, bread, milk, fruits and vegetables. You would be amazed at how many different dishes you can prepare using just these foods. I have included a few recipes on this blog. Of course, there are other foods we can eat like eggs and cheese. But not too many more. I try not to eat anything of which this book does not approve. There are too many questionable foods out there and you know the devil was made to kill us. We have to be very careful. “FOOD IS WHAT KEEPS YOU HERE AND FOOD IS WHAT TAKES YOU AWAY FROM HERE.” Don’t take chances. You cannot replace your stomach. And once it’s no longer able to perform its function of digesting food for you, that’s it.

So anyway, I joined this Muslim Foods Group on Facebook and they posted a picture which showed a dish I had never heard of called “Semifreddo”. It looked pretty good, so I Googled it just to find out what it was. Instead of just translating it to find out what it means, I looked up recipes and I came across one for a “HONEY Semifreddo.” Now, anyone who know me or has been keeping up with my blog, knows that I LOVE HONEY. And MILK & HONEY is the choice beverage of HEAVEN!

I have tried many different variations of preparing Milk & Honey, but this is a new one. I think it’s kind of like a custard, but I’ve never made a custard. I think I had it a long time ago and didn’t really care for it and I’m not too interested in trying it again. However, I think this is comparable to a custard, but it is “semifreddo” which translates to “semi-cold” so I think I might enjoy it. AND it’s Milk & Honey!? I’ve got to try it.

Judging by the ingredients and directions, it sounds good and healthy enough for my blog even without me trying it out. So, I’m going to post the recipe and you can try it and see if you like it. I’m not eating until Tuesday, so In sha Allah, I’ll make it then.

HONEY SEMIFREDDO

HONEY SEMIFREDDO

INGREDIENTS

  •  1 large egg
  • 4 large egg yolks
  •  cup best-quality honey (plus 3 tablespoons for serving)
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream

DIRECTIONS

  1. Line a loaf tin or plastic container with plastic wrap.
  2. Beat the egg and egg yolks with the honey in a bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, until the mixture is pale and thick. You can use a wire balloon whisk for this, but it will certainly be quicker with a hand-held electric whisk.
  3. Whip the heavy cream until thick, and then gently fold in the egg and honey mixture. (I added a 1/2 t of vanilla and a little cinnamon and nutmeg) Pour into the prepared loaf tin, and cover carefully with clingfilm before putting it in the freezer for about 2-3 hours.
  4. When it is ready to serve, turn out the semifreddo on to a suitably sized plate and drizzle with honey. It thaws quickly so don’t wait. Get yo’ grub on! 😉

*I didn’t drizzle mine with honey, but I did put a half-cup of honey instead of one-third and I think it over-saturated a bit and the honey collected on the bottom so when I turned it out of the bowl it ended up on top and gave it a really decorated look. 😉

Also Sisters, this is REALLY, REALLY EXTREMELY GOOD. My son tasted it first and I asked him what it tasted like. Well, one of the last flavors of ice cream I ever bought from the store (before I started making my own 😉 ) was this “For A Limited Time Only Honey-Vanilla Haagen Dazs” ice cream that was soooooooooooooo good. I used to tear it up. #thisisbetter 🙂
