Homejabi DIY Sliding Pantry

  Note to self: The kitchen is a room in my house that’s the most used but always runs out of space. What can I say, my passion is cooking and I have a TON of stuff, the majority of which are my spices and pantry staples. You can see how I organize my spices…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Butter Chicken

Note to self: One of the most popular dishes at the restaurant has to be butter chicken. I think it’s probably because it’s mild enough for everyone to eat yet still really flavorful. That and it has butter in the name…like come on…who doesn’t like butter. This is probably one of the easier Pakistani recipes…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Gulab Jamuns

Note to self: Gulab Jamuns are basically the signature dessert of Pakistan. Its like a warm, sweet little ball of deep fried goodness and soaked in syrup. I guess the best way to explain it for those of you who’ve never had before it is that it’s like a cross between a dense warm donut…

Easy Blueberry Danish

Note to self: So a while ago some of Moudi’s friends came over for the weekend and we hosted dinner and then brunch the next day. I forgot how much I missed hosting until this moment. It was the first time since being married we had people over to our apartment and I was so…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Chicken Tikka

Note to self: Chicken tikka is a total classic when it comes to Pakistani BBQ food. It’s traditionally marinated over night in yogurt and spices and then grilled in a tandoor (clay oven). Since most of us don’t have a tandoor just laying around this recipe is adapted so it can be grilled or even…

Fusilli Pasta with Fresh Basil Cream Sauce

Note to self: If you need a quick simple meal you don’t have to look any further! This is ready in under 20 minutes. Super fast, simple and flavorful. I love pesto, like LOVE it and mixing it in with a creamy sauce and tossing it in with some pasta and fresh tomatoes…yes please. I…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Haleem (Beef and Lentil Stew)

Note to self: You guys…I mean come on…how delicious does that look?! This is by far one of my favorite recipes ever. There’s something comforting about a hearty bowl of haleem. If you’ve never had it…girl (or boy lol)…you’re missing out!  Growing up my mom would only make this for Eid ul Fitr (a Muslim…

Healthy Quinoa Fried Rice

  Note to self: I’ve always wanted to eat healthy but I get turned off by most “healthy” food posts because to me they always look so bland and flavorless. If a recipe calls for only salt and pepper as it’s seasonings I swipe left hard (Is it swipe left or right on tinder? when…

Copycat White Castle Sliders for 2

Note to self: The other day Moudi and I were watching late night show repeats on YouTube and Jimmy Kimmel had Kal Penn on and that immediately made me think of the movie “Harold and Kumar go to white castle.” It’s brilliant marketing..for both White Castle and the movie…#MadProps….But anyways, that got me started on…

Super Moist Banana Bread

Note to self: This recipe was inspired by Hend. She absolutely LOVES banana bread…and when I say loves, like die hard obsessed with it. When we were talking over the phone she was telling me how sad she was that it always came out dry and crumbly. I made it my mission to experiment and…
