Lazeez Asian Cuisine Butter Chicken

Note to self: One of the most popular dishes at the restaurant has to be butter chicken. I think it’s probably because it’s mild enough for everyone to eat yet still really flavorful. That and it has butter in the name…like come on…who doesn’t like butter. This is probably one of the easier Pakistani recipes…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Gulab Jamuns

Note to self: Gulab Jamuns are basically the signature dessert of Pakistan. Its like a warm, sweet little ball of deep fried goodness and soaked in syrup. I guess the best way to explain it for those of you who’ve never had before it is that it’s like a cross between a dense warm donut…

Easy Blueberry Danish

Note to self: So a while ago some of Moudi’s friends came over for the weekend and we hosted dinner and then brunch the next day. I forgot how much I missed hosting until this moment. It was the first time since being married we had people over to our apartment and I was so…

Fusilli Pasta with Fresh Basil Cream Sauce

Note to self: If you need a quick simple meal you don’t have to look any further! This is ready in under 20 minutes. Super fast, simple and flavorful. I love pesto, like LOVE it and mixing it in with a creamy sauce and tossing it in with some pasta and fresh tomatoes…yes please. I…

Healthy Quinoa Fried Rice

  Note to self: I’ve always wanted to eat healthy but I get turned off by most “healthy” food posts because to me they always look so bland and flavorless. If a recipe calls for only salt and pepper as it’s seasonings I swipe left hard (Is it swipe left or right on tinder? when…

Copycat White Castle Sliders for 2

Note to self: The other day Moudi and I were watching late night show repeats on YouTube and Jimmy Kimmel had Kal Penn on and that immediately made me think of the movie “Harold and Kumar go to white castle.” It’s brilliant marketing..for both White Castle and the movie…#MadProps….But anyways, that got me started on…

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…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Chicken Tikka Masala

Note to self: This is one of the easiest Pakistani recipes you can make! Trust me, it’s so delicious and simple AND it doesn’t even require a lot of ingredients! Lately, i’ve been trying to jot down and learn as many recipes as I can from my mom. But it seems that no matter how…

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…
