Nicole Maftoum is a Lebanese dietitian and she’s preparing healthy and home-made Labneh-based Buches de Noel this year. It’s a pretty cool idea and I’ve been told by a friend that it’s delicious. The only bûche I like is the bûche aux marrons but this one looks like it’s worth a try.
If you’d like to order one, Check out Nicole’s website [Here].
That’s probably the only time of year where I enjoy working long hours.

Most of you probably didn’t know that but we have a Lebanese Traffic Management Center which consists of 30 employees who work in shifts (teams of 10) 24 hours a day.

To make things even better, the Lebanese Traffic Management Center has a twitter account (@TMCLebanon) which is updated with screenshots and useful info sometimes several times within an hour.
Sayfo is saying this new resort is located on the Zouk coast line but I don’t see the Zouk Powerplants anywhere in the first picture.

This is a couple of months old but I just found it online on [lacantdrive.com].
Check out what the website said about the driver. It’s hilarious!
OK, hold the phone, someone’s been messing with my falafel pita. I took this photo while crawling in sluggish traffic this Tuesday afternoon. Seriously, how fast could you possibly be going on Victory Blvd. (going east, just west of Coldwater Canyon) that you would careen your SUV into this Lebanese restaurant? Maybe the driver got the gas and brake pedals confused. Maybe the driver was texting or was too engrossed in a phone conversation and lost focus on what he/she was doing. Your guess is as good as mine. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t like someone’s hummus, I just write a bad review on Yelp.
