Beef Noodle Soup

Note to self: I love the cold…so much. It’s actually one of the things me and Moudi disagree on. He likes room temperature to warm while I’m there blasting the AC and having the fan on high yet still in my socks, blanket and all bundled up. I know it doesn’t make sense to him…

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…

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….

Nigerian Jollof Rice and Southern Cajun Jambalaya Fusion

Note to self: The other day I was having major Moudi withdrawals because he had been working so much. He works at an army base at Fort Gordon and has the dreaded night shift. 😥 It’s kinda hard for me to get used to. Every time I think I’m getting the hang of it there…

Zimbabwean Braai (Roasted BBQ beef skewers)

Note to self: If you’ve never heard of Braii don’t worry, I was oblivious as well until I was introduced to it by one of my best friends. Her mother in law makes THE best braai ever and since she married into a Zimbabwean family I knew I just had to delve into the wonders of…

Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

Note to self: I’ve been trying to think of different ways to make pasta recently. Moudi loves pasta so much…I think he would eat it everyday if he could but it’s been hard to come up with new recipes every time. Don’t get me wrong, he would be happy with a bowl of ramen noodles…

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…

Korean Bibimbap

Note to self: This recipe was inspired by Alina, one of my lovely snapchat followers! It was totally yummy and the spicy Korean sauce used to coat the beef was spicy and went well with all the other ingredients. I decided to repurpose the Mongolian beef from the previous recipe instead of using ground beef….

Mongolian Beef

Note to self: This recipe was inspired and requested by Seher! One of my snapchat followers! I love getting recommendations from you guys, it forces me to get out of my comfort zone and try something new and I get excited researching and trying to find the best recipe to use. I’ve never made Mongolian…

Chili and Jalapeño Buttermilk Cornbread

Note to self: There’s nothing better on a cold day than having a hot steaming bowl of chili topped with melted cheese and a dollop of sour cream with a side of soft warm cornbread. This chili was super meaty and hearty and oh so delicious. A definite must try! And the cornbread?! Super soft…
