So I know that I’ve been getting emails and messages from a lot of my fans saying “hey Dede, where are you?”  “no new posts”…and I have a good explanation for it I swear…I’m pregnant!!!  Yes yes yes, that’s why I haven’t posted any new video recipes lately, I just don’t like to be filmed with a nice big pregnancy belly…BUT I do have 3 unreleased videos that I will get edited soon and post.  And I have been ill lately with some major headaches and pregnancy pains.  BUT I do have a lot of awesome pictures and recipes to post, and I hope to get back on track this WEEK, so stay tuned and I appreciate all of your support! Let me start off by talking about this amazing Knafe that I had during my trip to Dearborn over the Thanksgiving holiday.  One thing that I can’t find when I’m in Cali is some GOOD Lebanese Knafe, it’s like they kept all the good food in Dearborn!  And yes I can make it myself, but sometimes, especially when I’m pregnant, I just want to pick some up and go home and eat it!!!  So of course I had to have some when I was in Dearborn (and yes I even brought a box back with me, I froze it so that it lasts the long airplane ride home). In my opinion the best knafe in Dearborn is from Liban sweets, they actually specialize in making the knafe, it’s their main dessert that they sell. The packaging for the knafe is also beautiful, it is a box with 2 compartments, one for the tray of knafe and one is for the sesame bread, I am very impressed with their packaging!
