For my vegetarian friend!

Let me start by saying that when I started this blog, at the insistence of my youngest sister, Hina, I thought it would help me kill some time, explore my creative writing skills, have some fun! A part of me even thought it would be romantic to have this blog live on in posterity as…

Did someone say Mac n cheese?

We were in a particularly cheesy mood one day, my nephews and I, so we decided to make a classic cheesy dish, overloaded with cheesy goodness! I don’t understand WHY does everything taste so much better with cheese!!! Well, let’s pin that debate for a later time. Right now let me share with you how…

Missing my sister!

I’m feeling a little sad today as my youngest sister, Hina, left us in the UAE to go back home to our parents in Karachi, after a month long vacation filled with love and laughter, jokes and pranks, hugs and kisses… A month it seems went by in a flash! Although our parents called us…

Another Family Favorite!

This brings back so many memories of a happy, greedy childhood where we couldn’t stop ourselves from stuffing our faces with our mum’s delicious, delectable, mouth-watering,finger-licking, jaw-dropping….I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture…amazing chicken drumsticks recipe. I remember I used to ask my mother to make more drumsticks in each batch…

Egg-citing breakfast!

With my family staying over at my place, I wanted to take the opportunity to try out new and egg-citing egg recipes I had saved on Pinterest. And let me tell you it was so much fun! I’m not a huge fan of eggs in general but this changed my mind…at least for the day…

Apple crumble

I have a very sweet tooth and it couldn’t be more apparent from the fact that I have been on a roll with desserts these days! Only down side is that this cooking is not really for Mr. Mazhar because he doesn’t like desserts much. Eid, my sister’s visit from Karachi and my nephews’ vacations…

On a sweet roll! 

I have accumulated enough easy Nutella recipes on my Pinterest board that I thought it was now time to try my hand at something. So I found one very simple recipe and decided to give it a shot. It was easy enough but I had to fine tune the recipe a bit to suit our…

Something special!

This is a very special recipe with an even more interesting back-story! A few years ago while watching an episode of Masterchef Australia I saw chef George Calombaris teach the contestants a simple yet beautiful Greek sweet dish that from the looks of it I thought I could make it too. As it happened the…

I’m back!

Breaks are tricky things. You like being on them, it feels so relaxing and liberating, to not have to worry about a deadline or any particular schedule for that matter. But it makes coming back to a routine that much harder! At least that’s how I go down the lane from sporadic posts to complete…
