Orange saffron infused scones

Note to self: I absolutely love the orange scones from Panera and decided to create my own version at home. Mid way I was inspired and added some saffron and I kind of wished I added a bit more because it wasn’t as prominent but it was great warm. The other thing I would change…

Mini bite sized kunafe

Note to self: Oh boy, do I love kunafe. It’s one of my favorite middle eastern desserts and this recipe is by far the easiest, foolproof, and yummiest I’ve tried. I was inspired by Cook with Dena for this amazing kunafe recipe and adapted it slightly. While she makes hers either in a large pan,…

Chicken Pot Pie

Note to self: Now you guys, if you want the ULTIMATE Chicken Pot pie recipe you don’t have to look any further. I’ve made this dozens of times and it’s a fool proof method of making the creamy hearty center and the flaky buttery pie crust. The only thing you have to keep in mind…

Mixed Berry Muffins

Note to self: These muffins are so pretty to look at but they taste even better! Now Moudi isn’t really a dessert kind of person so when he even said they were delicious it really means they came out good! He ended up eating almost half of them lol which is a win in my…

Note to self: This was inspired by Sania, she had posted about making strawberry shortcakes and told me about the amazing Bon Appetit recipe on their website.

Sfeeha (Lebanese Meat Pies)

Note to self: The first time I had this was off the highway at a Syrian grocery store whilst on a road trip to Tampa. And it was AMAZING! The older couple who ran the store were so sweet and accommodating and gave us a few of these meat pies along with some cheese boats….

Mushroom Risotto

Note to self: So I’ve never had risotto before but I’ve always wanted to try the rich, buttery, creamy goodness and omg I’m so glad I finally did. It’s super delicious and totally worth it. I researched a few recipes to try and find something that would be easy to make but also tastes amazing…

Caramelized onion and Brie tart

Note to self: This tart is just beautiful but I highly suggest adding a fresh arugula salad on top to cut down the richness of the all the cheeses and caramelized onions and pears. It would work wonderfully for an appetizer or you can even cut it into bite sized pieces and add a toothpick…
