I think we can all safely assume that Arabic desserts are decadent. Most often then not, they are doused in simple syrup. Which obviously makes them so much more delicious. Cream Cheese Stuffed Rolls are a childhood favorite of mine and one of the easiest desserts out there to make!
First, my husband fell sick, got better, then I came down with a light fever & cold and so my dearest decided to fall sick again as well. Just to steal my thunder. He does it every time!
According to him, sharing is caring.
Um, no thanks hubs, just take care of me when I’m not feeling well. No need to join me.
Especially considering what big B-A-B-I-E-S men turn into when they are the tiniest bit under the weather. Am I right, or am I right?

All started with me catching a throat infection, which obviously then turned into a fever. As soon as I started getting better, our grandma got sick and my recovery went down the drain as I was so worried about her!

I am finally getting more than three hours of sleep a night after three days and I am sleeping like the dead.
With 2018 coming to an end, I decided to throw this year’s healthy mantra away to enjoy these decadent Sticky Toffee & Walnut Puddings!

Living among different cultures and nationalities gives you insight into different traditions and a chance to try out new things.
Growing up in the Middle East meant that shawermas, manakeesh, baklava, basboosa and maamoul were among the few things popular in our home.

There’s no better way to embrace the strawberry season then to make Strawberry Cream Puffs.
Choux pastry is by far one of my most favorite pastries and for something so delicate and fancy, it is actually pretty simple to make. And let’s not forget that when you bring it out to serve your guests, it always impresses!
I feel like I’m losing my voice. Not literally. Just what makes me, well, me.
Or maybe I’ve just let too many outside voices in. If that makes any sense.
I think I just need some stimulating company with some conversation that makes you ponder about..everything.
Life has been so crazy recently, filled with unexpected curve balls poppin’ up outta no where paired with the constant back and forth between the different cities has left me with not much of a routine. No routine means a lot of time wasted for me! Especially if I’ve got some good romance novels nearby!
