It's Ramadan in Cairo! And the dried fruit & nut scene is at its finest, even with the pandemic. As a result, one must put all those dried fruit and nuts to use, beyond the good-old kunafas and baklavas! Hence - this date, fig, and almond loaf; a fusion creation that's...

***SUCCULENT ROASTED CHICKEN KEBAB ALERT!***  The best thing about this recipe is that it's mostly made items you’ll find in the fridge, and spices in your pantry. And the steps are also very simple -- marinade, skewer, roll it around under the broiler, and kaboom! You...

I've always been a sucker to sweet-chili-anything. There's always a bottle or two hanging around my pantry, but recently, after coming across about a quarter-kilo of adorable little chili peppers,  I didn't want them to go to waste -- what better way to utilize them th...

WHO. DOESN’T. LOVE. POTATOES? I dare you to say no :D. Seriously — everyone loves fries! And even though we ALSO know that their golden-deep-fried-goodness is in fact seriously unhealthy, many of us nevertheless can dive deep into a batch of fresh crispy fries, alongsi...

A marinade can truly make or break a chicken dinner -- and that's why this one is so so good! Rule of thumb when it comes to this recipe -- leave it marinading for at least 24 hours, up to 48 hours. Second; it's totally fine to dumb the chicken and its marinade into a...

Who DOESN'T love a loaf of warm crusty artisan bread?... Not me! I have an addiction to good bread, and for someone that enjoys baking more than anything else, bread tops everything. Artisan bread though is a bit tricky... the hours behind making the sourdough, finding...

It’s comfort food if it involves pasta. Its comfort food if it means dirtying as little dishes as possible (because we all hate cleaning up!). It’s comfort food if it's warm and flavourful, and leaves you feeling content in the end, like everything is right in the worl...

I love to mess around with classics.... blasphemous, I know -- but the kitchen is my laboratory and the dishes are more or less my experiments. So when I wonder what would happen if a classic cinnamon roll was transformed into a savory phenomenon rather than the classi...

Sweet, sassy, molassy -- that's all I can really say about these little bites of joy. Im a major cookie fan, and it's my 'thing' to see how I can upgrade and alter the general cookie into more than just something you can dunk into your coffee or tea.  Having said that,...

Pesto is green. And naturally so -- because after all, the protagonist in pesto's universal story is basil -- succulent, fragrant, leafy green basil. And sometimes, cilantro, parsley, or dill is used to create an ‘alternate’ kind of pesto that’s ultimately still very g...

My first post back is an ode to my mum. Back when we lived in Melbourne, my mum’s favorite indulgence was - after a stroll through center city - to enjoy a fresh coffee scroll. Traditionally Australian, these scrolls are generally unheard of beyond Down Under. Think ci...

You've heard of sweet and sour chicken... but have you tried sweet and sour beef? It's not really a popular concept, even though I'm certain it exists somewhere! My first instinct is to always reach for the chicken -- but when this recipe came about, it was because i'd...

Nothing’s better than utilizing a stash of herbs — especially if it involves butter! Herbal butters add punches of flavor to any dish you use them with, without going into intricate culinary details and or extra expenses. The beauty of them is that they can be made at...

Did I ever tell you that I’m a sucker for sugar? Desserts of all kind, butter scotches, caramels, candies, cakes, cookies…. all the bad stuff, I love. With a passion. And while I’m also a BIG fan of chocolate, I’m an even BIGGER fan of salted caramel. Like I can litera...

“The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water, is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight," said M.F.K. Fisher. How beautifully true is that? Bread is art, history, culture, love, passion, and life, meshed all into one. The ve...
