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…

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…

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…

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…
