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,…

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…

Strawberry Shortcakes

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.

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Gulab Jamuns

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…

Bakery style cake

Note to self: Do you ever have one of those days where all you want is a slice of cake? I feel like that’s the story of my life. I have such a sweet tooth that I get these random cravings in the middle of the night hence how this recipe came about. It wasn’t…

Easy Baklava Tarts

Note to self: So the other day I finally got introduced into the Muslim community in GA. I’ve been here since the end of May and it’s been hard to make friends. Both me and my husband are introverts and shy guys so just going up to random people and starting a conversation isn’t really…

3 Ingredient Cookies

Note to self: Do you have those moments where you’re craving dessert so bad you’re willing to go out in the middle of the night just to satisfy that sweet tooth? I had one of those last night and while I was debating going on a midnight Krispy Kreme run I decided to make these…
