Simple Blueberry Bread Pudding

Are you bored of the usual bread pudding recipes on Google? The dessert is something I prepare when the bread at home is going stale. But this time, I decided to add a twist!

How about adding blueberries to the mix? Blueberries have made an appearance in pies, cheesecakes, muffins, cakes or turned into coulis, compotes, and jams. I was a bit skeptical at first but decided to give it a try.

I was sent a few fresh fruit packs from Del Monte and after the usual blueberries gracing my chocolate pancakes, I knew I NEEDED to make something different. Enter, this delicious Blueberry Bread Pudding that gives a nice combination of tangy, fruity, and sweet.

I, for one, am usually on the search for recipes during Ramadan. After fasting, sweet cravings are at bay and this one’s a great option if you don’t want something that will result in a sugar overload.

Cheddar Shepherd’s Pie

I love one pan/ pot dishes. Our home is a regular abode for friends and relatives every weekend so these dishes serve as a wonderful way to serve all. We’ve picked up a few recipes from the past years and stuck on to them, one of them being Shepherd’s Pie. Potatoes, minced meat, and veggies are thrown in a good tomato sauce and everyone’s happy. But what really makes us happier is cheese. Therefore, an addition of cheese was necessary. Continue reading “Cheddar Shepherd’s Pie”

Indian Style Chicken Marinade

I’ve been cooking a lot lately and recipe testing for the website which is ironic since I haven’t been posting much. Thing is, people usually think that it’s just a recipe to prepare but there are lots of chores that go behind the scenes. Shooting and styling the food, editing pictures, and only then uploading it to the website along with the recipe. The process takes hours or even a couple of days for each recipe.

Quick Vegan Noodle Bowl

I’ve been down with the flu and that has left me with no tastebuds for the time being. Eating is not really on my mind at this time, but to keep hunger away I do need to get into the kitchen to prepare a thing or two.

This time I found myself making a noodle bowl instead of the comforting soup that I normally opt for. This noodle bowl is super easy and leaves you feeling full as well. Like my usual recipes, this one is versatile too and you can add whatever you please. Continue reading “Quick Vegan Noodle Bowl”

Easy Breakfast Skillet

Winter in Dubai is my favorite time of the year. The weather is beautiful so it’s the best time to head outdoors. What I also like is that the hubby has holidays so that means some time off for me from the newborn!

Since holidays and lazy breakfasts are almost synonymous, I’ve come up with something that’s going to save your time while also bringing food to the table. Continue reading “Easy Breakfast Skillet”

Beet Froyo

After my recent post about Beetroot Milk, I decided to move on to a different dairy product. This time, yoghurt.

Summer is approaching and all you want to do is sip those cool sodas and have ice creams. But what if I have a better and guilt free option in mind? Something that looks greeaattt too? (Read: Pink in color) Continue reading “Beet Froyo”

Beetroot Milk

I’ve been obsessed with beetroot/beets lately. Just the colour of the odd brownish vegetable inside makes me go oohing and aahing!

And, they’re perfect for a salad, dessert or even juice! I came across a recipe recently that promised a glass every morning would keep you as “healthy as ever”. And lines like these…are things I usually fall for. Be it fad diets/ crash diets or metabolism boosting ways, Sarah is always there to test it. Continue reading “Beetroot Milk”
