Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Note to self: Tis the season of pumpkin spice errythang! I love this time of year, the cold weather, the leaves changing color, and when everyone becomes obsessed with pumpkin. Don’t get me wrong…I welcome it whole heartedly! In fact I wish it was a year round celebration…There’s something magical about it AND it’s the…

Vegetarian Korean Jjajangmyeon

Note to self: This is a recipe inspired by Moudi. We were on a YouTube binge watching cooking videos and came across this YouTuber called Seonkyoung longest. She’s super fun and has this segment where she goes live and in 15 minutes has to cook up something on the spot that a viewer requests. We…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Chunky Raita (Veggie yogurt chutney sauce)

Note to self: Raita in itself is super yummy but there’s something fun and fresh about adding veggies into the mix. Adding a combination of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers gives the raita a bite to it and it’s super yummy to eat with biryani and kabobs. Especially if you put it into a burger or wrap. If…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Raita (Yogurt cilantro chutney sauce)

Note to self: Sometimes, even more than the main course, the most important part of the meal is the sauces that accompany it. We’re a total saucy family…pun intended. 😉 But no, really…Even with curries and the like we prefer the sauce over actual meat. And don’t get me started if we ever go out…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Green Chutney

Note to self: Green chutney…lol I have no idea why we call it that…I don’t know if it’s only in our household or if it’s something that known throughout all Pakistani households. But it’s all I’ve ever known it by. My siblings and I have called it that since we were kids and it just…

Easy Baklava Tarts

Note to self: So the other day I finally got introduced into the Muslim community in GA. I’ve been here since the end of May and it’s been hard to make friends. Both me and my husband are introverts and shy guys so just going up to random people and starting a conversation isn’t really…

Mac & Cheese Biscuit Bombs

Note to self: I LOVE repurposing leftovers into something new. For some reason I’ve never liked leftovers…not that I wouldn’t eat them….but I just loved thinking of creative ways to make them into a new dish or appetizer instead. Some of my favorite ways to utilize leftovers is to use egg roll wrappers or puff…

Creamy Mac & Cheese

Note to self: Before I even start my note to self I just have one disclaimer…I have a secret…a terrible blasphemous secret that I don’t tell most people because they’ll think I’m crazy….I rarely eat mac & cheese in front of people because I HAVE to eat it with….ketchup. I know I know ::runs and…

Pineapple Ginger Mocktail

Note to self: This is hands down the most refreshing and simplest drink I’ve ever made! It’s a total holy grail status and I actually got this recipe from my friend Aisha during Ramadan. I loved it so much that I ended up going back to the store just to get more ingredients so I…

Lazeez Asian Cuisine Loki (Squash)

Note to self: I remember the first time I tried loki…it was unlike anything I ever tasted and even though it’s completely vegan you won’t even miss the meat. It’s one of the few recipes where, as much as I hate leftovers, I pray it’s still in the fridge the next day or even the…
