Chili and Jalapeño Buttermilk Cornbread

Note to self: There’s nothing better on a cold day than having a hot steaming bowl of chili topped with melted cheese and a dollop of sour cream with a side of soft warm cornbread. This chili was super meaty and hearty and oh so delicious. A definite must try! And the cornbread?! Super soft…

Leftover Gyro Bowl Tacos and Burritos

Note to self: There was a sale at Publix the other day on these BOGO taco kits and it inspired this idea. Since I had leftover Halal Guys from the day before I thought it might be a good way to repurpose them. It’s really simple, easy and amazing. These are the taco shells I…

Gyro Rice Bowl

Note to self: The other day I was looking through my snaps and came across a bunch of people eating Halal Guys. It made me crave it sooo much! Their white sauce is a must and I usually get an extra packet to just drench the entire thing in it. This past year they opened…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Goat Korma (Goat Curry)

Note to self: Korma is a classic. Total traditional staple of Pakistani cuisine. It’s a tomato/onion based curry full of fragrant spices and hearty tender meat. I decided to make this bc our local halal grocery store had this wonderful leg of fresh goat that came in that day and it inspired this dish. Oh!…

French Dip Onion and Beef Noodle Soup

Note to self: This dish was inspired by our honeymoon trip to the Maldives…We had this open buffet every morning and there were breakfast stations from all around the world! If you were Indian and felt like eating hot parathas and choley they were there, if you were English and wanted to eat toast and…

French Dip Sandwiches

Note to self: This. Is. Amazeballs. Like seriously…If you have to try out a sandwich this is the one to make and try out! The brisket becomes so juicy and tender that it literally falls apart in the broth. I love adding onions to the broth to give it more body and depth and the…

Meatball Sub

Note to self: This was made the same day as the previous post…the spaghetti and meatballs. I had leftover meatballs and decided to make  meatball sub out of it. It was super yummy and very satisfying after a long day. I would totally recommend it, there’s so much flavor from the soy chorizo and the…

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Note to self: This recipe was inspired by pure laziness tbh. It was Thursday…and the reason I remember that is because we were fasting and we couldn’t wait to eat. Moudi used to be a regular faster…fasterer? I have no idea if that’s even a real word…but he used to consistently fast Monday/Thursday to fulfill…

Authentic Vietnamese Beef Pho

Note to self: This blog post is super late…we just came back from our LA trip and this was meant to be posted on Moudi’s birthday but was postponed until I came back. LA was so much fun! I’ve never been to the west coast and it was an unbelievable trip…we went with my family…

Authentic Nigerian Moin Moin/A la la (Steamed bean cake)

Note to self: The other day Zainab, Moudi and I went on a mission to find an African Market so we could get ingredients for Moin Moin. (Also known as A la la) According to google maps there was only one in the area and when we got there it said it was a hair…
