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…

Authentic Pakistani 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…

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…

Creamy Tomato Soup

Note to self: My inner Miami girl is coming out…It’s starting to become colder and colder up here in Georgia and I often find myself waking up with my teeth chattering. Growing up in Florida has spoiled me to summer and palm trees all year round. Not that I mind a reprieve from the heat…

Volcano Fried Rice

Note to Self: If you’re looking for a dish that’ll present the “wow” factor this is probably it. With a table side presentation where your guests will surely be impressed. I adapted this recipe from Seonkyoung Longest, I’ve been obsessed with her videos on YouYube and her weekly 15 minute cooking challenges. She’s super fun…

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…

Restaurant Style Salsa

Note to self: I don’t know if it’s just me but I can’t seem to work at home…ever. I have no discipline whatsoever when it comes to getting important stuff done, I have to physically get out of the house and go to the library or Panera or Starbucks to be productive. I’m not sure…

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…

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…
