A leaf from mother-in-law’s cookbook!

I believe that every person, man or woman, has a taste in their cooking style that is unique to them! Entirely their own. I believe this because two people can follow the same recipe to the T and still have a slightly different taste in each of their creations. I’m cooking my mother’s recipes and…

Making my table pretty!

I shared with you my love for pretty table clothes and the different ways I style my table to keep things interesting. Here is a sneak peak into my small but growing collection of pretty tissue papers or napkins. I don’t know about different parts of the world but here in the UAE this is…

My Abu (father) and my youngest sister are die-hard fans of these concoctions. My sister has been asking me to write a blog for these recipes for a long time now. With…
