Iftars to Look Forward to in Dubai

Ramadan Mubarak to all our readers! Ramadan is a month of reflection and gratitude and is best spent with loved ones. Sitting down together after the day to break one’s fast with family is the time we look forward to most.

Dubai is known to host some of the best iftars where there is a spread of cuisines of different kinds. While I am a person who prefers quality over quantity, I do happen to indulge in some buffets. However, sometimes you find average food and service for a price that is a tad too high.

And that’s where Hungryoungwoman comes in! This new list features the top five places you can settle in for Iftar in Dubai Continue reading “Iftars to Look Forward to in Dubai”

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.

Are you walking towards a sweet and short future?

It’s no surprise that restaurants with the crazy and overhyped most innovative desserts do better than others. Enter freakshakes, milk cakes, and all sweets that require you to pour chocolate fudge/caramel on them. I’m not against them at all and agree that I’ve had my fair share of molten chocolate cakes all my life (they’re really my weakness!)  Continue reading “Are you walking towards a sweet and short future?”

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”

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”
