Homemade Tacos

Celebrating this taco Tuesday the right way! Went all out preparing and cooking FOUR DIFFERENT tacos today! This was part of a challenge that I had to post, so was quite tight on timings and had to work with specific ingredients, some of which I would’ve liked to maybe change.. will talk about that later…

Sausage Pepper Jack Breakfast SUBS!

This is another time a meal starts with bread for me! I bought this amazing brioche bread from Sunny Market and it all went from there. Spread some butter with dry thyme, and stuffed it with a pepper jack & sausage omelette. Another great thing about this recipe is that all you need is one…

Deep Fried Everything – Homemade

You know how we sometimes just want to eat the fries on the side of a big dinner table or part of a 5 course meal? Well, today I’m dedicating this entire post to all the sides we take for granted, by making some of my favorites for dinner today! And the only rule is,…

SLOPPY O’s – Homemade

Just made these yummy sloppy joe’s (or Sloppy O’s as I decided to call them). A classic diner treat, which never disappoints! This is a super easy recipe, that can work for brunch or a road trip, and doesn’t really take much time to make. Start off with adding ground beef with finely chopped onions…

Breakfast moussaka

You may or may not know this, but I’m a HUGE fan of eggplant-based dishes! Whether it’s as simple as a baba ghanoush dip, or a classic Egyptian household dish like MOUSSAKA (مسقعة)! I always thought eggplants can work with or add to any dish, and this recipe definitely proves that! I’m bringing it to…

Fried Chicken Sandwich

Do you ever have one of those days when you start thinking of something so insignificant and small, that leads to one thing and you end up with something way bigger? Have I lost you yet? 🙂 Good. Well for me, that little thing was as small as an ingredient, smoked paprika! I’ve kind of…

Mango FIESTA

I recently got these AMAZING mangoes from Shahin’s Farm. They were so good I just had to get a little creative with the way I’ll eat them. I usually cut the peels into cubes or slice them into strips, this time I thought I’d a bit more. Now these recipes are SUPER easy, and don’t…

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I recently got some chicken breasts from a new meat & poultry store as part of their campaign to promote their products. I thought I’d go with something oven-baked, as that’s how I usually like to eat chicken, as it has all its juices and perfectly retains the flavors added to it. I also had…

Homemade CHIPS & DIPS!

So I recently spent almost an entire week at the beach, which was the perfect way to end the summer. And as fun as that was, I really missed being a couch potato binge-watching shows on Netlfix  in the comfort of my own room 🙂 Now what’s binge-watching without some SNACKS?! I treated myself to…

Egg in a basket – Burger edition 🍔

This breakfast dish started with me wanting to make classic eggs in a basket/hole then thought why not add a burger to the mix, one thing lead to another and here we are now 🙂 This is still ‘technically’ considered an egg in a basket, only the basket is a double burger with bacon &…
