Three Years + My Disasters + Your Photos.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Today marks three years since I started writing this blog.
Although, it feels like a hundred years have passed since that September afternoon in 2012 when I, on a whim, decided to make a blog. Can you believe my first post had no photos?! Don't worry, I updated the recipe with the usual step-by-step pictures.

A Lamb Chop Curry for Eid-al-Adha.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

An early Eid-al-Adha Mubarak to you all.

I was discussing Eid-al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice) with my nieces last week and one of them said she didn't really get it. Eid-al-Fitr is the celebration after fasting the entire month of Ramadan but what about Eid-al-Adha? I knew exactly what she meant.

It's bagels for a crowd!

But first, can we discuss the fact that it's Eid-ul-Adha next week? It's pretty exciting even though Eid-ul-Fitr feels like it was just yesterday.

We made it to Friday and I think you deserve a brownie.

And not just any brownie. But these gluten-free quadruple chocolate brownies. Ooh, and they come together in one bowl, bake in 35 minutes .... oh, who am I kidding? I'm sure I had you hooked at brownie.

How's Wednesday going?

More importantly, what's for dinner tonight? For us, leftovers. The best kind of dinner in my opinion. Especially when those leftovers include this.

Coconut + Cardamom Biscuits.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Cardamom fans, unite!

Seriously. These coconut cardamom biscuits are for those that enjoy Indian tea. You know, the tea where the water is boiled in a pan with whole spices, usually cardamom and cinnamon. Then, teabags are added and boiled. Finally, in goes the milk and the whole thing is cooked until frothy with a spicy, milky aroma that fills the kitchen. Plenty of sugar is stirred through and the tea is strained and served.

Sticky, Spicy Chicken with Pea + Cinnamon Rice.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Why, oh why, don't I use cinnamon in savoury dishes more often?

This is exactly what I was thinking when I began cooking the rice in this recipe. The scent of cinnamon, usually frying with onions, ginger and garlic, as in this pea + cinnamon rice, is delicious. So warming, comforting and perfect for September. Guys, I am so excited that it's September - autumn is my favourite.
