Garlic Naan

Garlic Naan

For me, no Indian restaurant meal is ever complete without warm, butter garlic naan. I love mine piping hot with lots of garlic and enough butter to fill the Pacific Ocean! This amazing recipe is from Host the Toast! She has made this recipe so perfect I could never improve it. I have now made this recipe a gazillion times and have all the measurements memorized. We used to be frozen naan loyalists but this little bit of effort in planning goes a long way! This recipe is super kid friendly, I even managed to get my little cousin in...

Air-fried Zaàtar Crisps

Air-fried Zaàtar Crisps

These crisps can be enjoyed with anything – be it hummus, salsa, sour cream or even vegan yogurt! Oh, and even as they are! I got an air-fryer in March, and it’s been a blessing. And once I began to share my air-fryer recipes online, I know 7 people in my close family/friend circle who’ve bought it too 😂😂. This recipe is super easy – literally someone like my dad who doesn’t enter the kitchen can whip these up! Ingredients 2 No.s Grocery bought Arabic bread (I used Modern Bakery’s- check the ingredients though because sometimes some brands’ contain milk)...

3 healthy summer appetizers to try (no oven or stove needed!)

You know how people — myself included — say the side dishes at Thanksgiving are the best part of the meal? Well that’s how I feel about snacks and appetizers at summer get-togethers, pool parties and barbecues! There always seems to be at least one showstopper item on the table that makes everyone say, “ohmigod, you have to try this!” And not to sound sappy but… I miss those mingling moments. Although COVID has (quite literally) crashed the party, I declare it v acceptable to pour yourself a refreshing drink and feast on some summer snacks and apps to melt your barbecue blues...

Quick, Healthy, and Kid Friendly Snacks

Quick, Healthy, and Kid Friendly Snacks

“I’m hungry” “Can I have a snack” “When are we eating?” These are the regular rotation of questions I hear as a mom and wife. I have a 10-year-old boy and he is always hungry. I must admit I have some jealousy that he can eat all the time and not gain any weight. Wouldn’t it be awesome to eat 2 breakfasts and ice cream every single night without any consequences? We can thank the genes his ectomorph father gave him for this ability. While he is completely happy to eat junk food all the time, the health and nutrition...
