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…

Hash brown Waffles

Note to self: This was something I’ve been wanting to try ever since I got my mini waffle maker…Hash brown waffles! I love hash browns so much. Moudi and I have this morning ritual whenever we go to pray Fajr at the mosque. We stop by McDonalds after and grab their warm crispy hash browns….

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Bhindi (Okra)

Note to self: I absolutely love okra, it’s one of my favorite vegetables right after beets. There’s just something about cooking okra that reminds me of childhood. I remember my mom using leftover okra and making grilled stuffed sandwiches with them. Now this recipe is one of my mom’s and I’ve been sworn into secrecy…
