Authentic Pakistani Chicken Tikka

Note to self: Chicken tikka is a total classic when it comes to Pakistani BBQ food. It’s traditionally marinated over night in yogurt and spices and then grilled in a tandoor (clay oven). Since most of us don’t have a tandoor just laying around this recipe is adapted so it can be grilled or even…

Nigerian Jollof Rice and Southern Cajun Jambalaya Fusion

Note to self: The other day I was having major Moudi withdrawals because he had been working so much. He works at an army base at Fort Gordon and has the dreaded night shift. 😥 It’s kinda hard for me to get used to. Every time I think I’m getting the hang of it there…

Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

Note to self: I’ve been trying to think of different ways to make pasta recently. Moudi loves pasta so much…I think he would eat it everyday if he could but it’s been hard to come up with new recipes every time. Don’t get me wrong, he would be happy with a bowl of ramen noodles…

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….

Leftover Biryani Lettuce Cups

Note to self: This is a super healthy and fun way to eat leftovers…Just pop them into some lettuce cups, add a yummy sauce and that’s basically it. It should be a crime at how simple and fast this is. I was debating whether even to put up a video because legit it’s less than…

Leftover Biryani Chinese Fried Rice

Note to self: I ended up making waaay too much biryani for 2 people. At this rate I think we would be eating it breakfast, lunch and dinner for a week so I wanted to find creative ways to repurpose it so we wouldn’t be eating the same thing every day. I thought about how…
