Manakeesh bil Za’atar (Za’atar Flatbread/Manoushe)

I realise it’s been a minute since I last posted so I’m bringing you my second most favorite Middle Eastern treat to make up for it: Manakeesh bil Za’atar or Flatbread with Za’atar! It’s also called Man’oushe.

Flatbread with Za'atar is soft & golden, the tantalising scent of za'atar herby & seductive. It's flavorful, fresh & gives you that perfect zing of herbs paired with olive oil.

Red Pepper Pesto Tagliatelle with Mushrooms

Happy World Pasta Day! I’ve got a beautiful, flavor packed pasta that’s got my Roasted Red Pepper Pesto singing delightful notes of its sweet smokiness paired with fresh cherry tomatoes, chilli garlic mushrooms and fresh basil just waiting to transport your taste buds into pasta filled heaven. But before we get onto that, I’ve got a question..

Today was one of those walking leisurely hand-in-hand kinda days, ending with a good hour spent at a bookstore, so I’d say the best way to end it would be with some delicious pasta and a romantic setting.

Since I’m going to have to forego making this flavorful pasta for hubs and me since we’re still out of town, I’m going to ask you to put it together for us.

Make it, enjoy it and have a couple bites for us!

Saffron & White Truffle Tagliatelle

Hey, everyone!

Little Miracle’s turns one today!

You can’t see me but I’m doing a crazy dance all day. Or just jumping around, cheering- same thing!

One year of food fun and I’ve got to thank you all for it!

So thank you, for the support, the feedback, the questions and the inspiration from my followers.

For every unfollow and every indifferent browse right past my feed, thank you especially, you push me to do better everyday.

And how could I forget to thank my two brothers who taste and polish off everything as long as it contains no fruit? I’d have tons of leftovers and be hundreds of pounds heavier if not for you guys!

Fresh Strawberry & Chicken Salad

Hey, you guys! 

The past ten days have been an absolute blur! When I think back all I can remember are flashes of moments that include card & board games on repeat and cooking with my two little nieces every afternoon. 

It’s wonderful to cook with kids, but  you really gotta remember to always keep a lot of free time ahead, especially if you’ve got a meticulous little angel, like my youngest niece, who’s full of a million and one questions. I just love working with children though- their outlook and ideas are so refreshing & entertaining!  Continue reading “Fresh Strawberry & Chicken Salad”

Cajun Chicken Quesadillas

Hey guys!

How’s it going?

I am absolutely knackered.

I tend to say ‘I am pooped‘- comically, of course, but the rest of the family finds it just hilarious and insists that it’s not a thing.

I googled it once to prove them wrong- which I did. It is a thing.

Right?

Anyway, I am absolutely, positively knackered.

That might be my new exhausted word for a while.

Knackered.

Chicken Wontons

Hello, my peeps!

Another day, another recipe!

I am going to deviate from the health path that I’ve been racing down on with these fun, delicious wontons.

I was so incredibly stoked when I came across wonton wrappers when I was visiting my Mum recently. I grabbed a package, super excited to try something out- especially since while we are staying at our place in the town, Chinese food is a rarity. I grabbed the package, stuck it in Mom’s freezer while I stayed a couple days, then forgot about it when I headed back home.

These wonton wrappers and I have had quite an adventure together!

I’m more of a dim-sum girl. However, hubby loves, loves, loves his Chinese food and he absolutely loves his crispy chicken wontons. Granted these weren’t a copy of what he usually orders in when we’re in the city, they were still deemed delicious.
