Pumpkins always remind me of my childhood memories in the States when we used to "hardly" Curve Pumpkins with friends for Halloween, It's been so hard for a 10 year old girl, I thought now it would definetly be easier but surprisingly I found it still hard :( maybe this is due to a bad knife or a hard pumpkin, but anyway, the taste of this pumpkin-cream Casserole is worth the effort :))

This is a delicious Turkish dessert that was brought to Egypt & middle east during the Ottoman Empire. We usually do it & eat it a lot in Egypt during the holy month of Ramadan (our fasting month), but it is sold through the whole year in all dessert shops. I love it & this is my mother's easy & delicious recipe.

Ingredients: (for 4-6 persons)

Here's the story to this amazing soup :) I had 500 gm fresh Spinach in my fridge for over a week & I finally I decided to do something with it before it's ruined . I & my kids are unfortunately not spinach lovers, I only like eating raw crispy Spinach in Salads. Anyway I decided doing soup, this was inspired from my Lentil soup recipe & it was so tasty & creamy & I & the kids went crazy about it. here is the easy recipe.
