Easy Blueberry Danish

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…

Hash brown Waffles

Note to self: This was something I’ve been wanting to try ever since I got my mini waffle maker…Hash brown waffles! I love hash browns so much. Moudi and I have this morning ritual whenever we go to pray Fajr at the mosque. We stop by McDonalds after and grab their warm crispy hash browns….

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Buttermilk Waffles

Note to self: Masa, or Waina is a rice cake that’s from the northern part of Nigeria and is traditionally eaten by the Hausa tribe. It’s made from rice that’s soaked overnight and then blended and proofed with yeast and sugar and salt.  It’s my first time making it and trying it and while it…

Asiago Cheese Bagels

Note to self: Who doesn’t love a good bagel?! That crunchy toasty outside and chewy delicious fluffy inside…I remember back in my high school days the $1 bagels were to die for and would be the “it” thing everyone would have to have in the mornings. Nowadays I have a tendency to crave the Panera…
