Authentic Pakistani Seikh kabobs and Chapli kabobs

Note to self: The one thing that everyone asks my mom about her kabobs is how she gets them super soft and succulent. From customers at the restaurant to hotel wedding managers for catering orders everyone dies to know how they’re made. And until today it was a very well guarded secret that she allowed…

Holy Grail Mashed Potatoes

Note to self: These were seriously one of the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever tasted. I don’t know what it is about them, whether it’s the fact that they’re boiled in milk and cream or whether its the surprise pops of whole grain mustard when you take a bite. Either way, this recipe is a…

Asian Hoisin Burgers

Note to self: I love burgers SO much! Trying new burger recipes are so much fun, especially when the ingredients are out of the ordinary and the flavor profile is super interesting. I found this recipe on carlsbadcravings.com and was immediately drawn to it. Moudi loves Asian flavors and I love burgers so this seemed like the…

French Onion Soup

Note to self: Can we just take a moment to savor this picture? How yummy does that look? This was one of the heartiest flavorful-est soups I’ve made and it came out super delicious! I’ve never had french onion soup before but have always wanted to try it. Most have beef broth and wine incorporated…

Tteokguk (Korean Rice Cake Soup)

Note to self: With the upcoming New Year I decided to make Tteokguk, a Korean rice cake soup that’s traditionally eaten on Seollal, the Korean new year. It lands on the first day of the Lunar calendar and it usually coincides with the Chinese new year. I never tried it or heard of it until Moudi introduced…

Asian Garlic Noodles

Note to self: Oh boy oh boy oh boy…these noodles are the holy grail of noodles! Moudi and I loved them so much and legit finished this in one sitting. Moudi couldn’t stop eating it and after he did the dishes he went back in for a second round…it was THAT good! The best part…

Zimbabwean Braai (Roasted BBQ beef skewers)

Note to self: If you’ve never heard of Braii don’t worry, I was oblivious as well until I was introduced to it by one of my best friends. Her mother in law makes THE best braai ever and since she married into a Zimbabwean family I knew I just had to delve into the wonders of…

Chick Fil A Copycat

Note to self: This recipe was inspired by Zoya! Well more so requested which is pretty much the same thing lol, and totally awesome!

Kung Pao Chicken and Noodles

Note to self: Oh man was this good. My mouth is salivating right now for some of these noodles. Side note: every time I type out noodles for some reason it comes out as boodles. I tried to fix it but if you happen to see a boodle anywhere know that I meant noodle lol….

Authentic Pakistani Chunky Raita (Veggie yogurt chutney sauce)

Note to self: Raita in itself is super yummy but there’s something fun and fresh about adding veggies into the mix. Adding a combination of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers gives the raita a bite to it and it’s super yummy to eat with biryani and kabobs. Especially if you put it into a burger or wrap. If…

Authentic Pakistani Raita (Yogurt cilantro chutney sauce)

Note to self: Sometimes, even more than the main course, the most important part of the meal is the sauces that accompany it. We’re a total saucy family…pun intended. 😉 But no, really…Even with curries and the like we prefer the sauce over actual meat. And don’t get me started if we ever go out…

Authentic Pakistani Chicken Biryani (Chicken and Rice)

Note to self: Biryani is the holy grail of Pakistani cuisine. No one makes it better than yo mamma and there have been feuds over whose biryani ranks supreme. I know for most people biryani is a special occasion kind of meal… isn’t made often because of all the effort it takes but the best…
