Appetizers are really my favorite thing to make. It demands so much attention to details and meticulous arrangements of assorted ingredients to come up with decorative little morsels. It gives me so much joy to actually design food and in a way dress it up to sit on my dishes like super seductive models ready to be photographed. I have been playing around with the new found ingredient “ kataifi “, it is a style of filo pastry that resemble spaghetti. Commonly found in Greek and Mediterranean desserts. This time I have done two dishes with one ingredient. Scallops wrapped in Kataifi and Kaitaifi prawns with honey chili dipping sauce.

Ripple Cake


One of my most sweetest and cutest friend (Nabila) decided to drop by from New Jersey this week. So I thought of making a sweet little something for her. It’s the most easiest dessert ever, it requires very few ingredients and takes about 10 minutes to prepare. The best part is that you can do it the night before. You can choose to do it in a bowl as I have done and pipped the left over cream over the top. Or you can make it in to a log as the recipe below read. I got this recipe from a very near and dear person to my heart… Kakon Api. Thank you so much! This is one of mine and Rishi’s favourite desserts. Ingredients: Whipping cream, Sugar, Vanilla extract, Chocolate biscuits (Cocoa powder, strawberries or raspberries are optional)

I always look for easy breakfast recipes, something that I wouldn’t have to work too hard for after waking up. And if I can do it the night before.. even better :D. This didn’t really take much time to prepare at all. Just let it marinate in the egg mixture overnight, take it out of the freezer and bake it till it smells all savory and delicious. Ingredients: Bread rolls, Eggs, Milk, butter, Cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, Dry mustard, Salt, Cayenne pepper and Chives.

I have never tasted nutella up until a few weeks ago. I know its absurd .. I grew up in the states yet totally oblivious to something so familiar to every children out here. Such a shame .. but better late than never. So recently I have been on a nutella kick. I have discovered a new way of making French toast with a new found gem in my kitchen cabinet. Another simple yet satisfying dessert. You can even use cream cheese as a filling. ” Nutella French Toast” Ingredients: Eggs, milk, bread, sugar, cinnamon ground, strawberries, banana, butter and nutella.

A special Eid indeed .. for the fist time in my life I was cooking in the same kitchen as my mother. Though we weren’t up and running exactly on Eid day. We still managed to come through and celebrate and share our love of cooking. .
