Bruschetta with Tomatoes, Garlic and Cheese

Finger foods aren’t just for parties. When it’s really hot outside, I don’t like to get too complicated in the kitchen. When it’s cold outside, I like comfort food. Bread and cheese fit in both of these categories, so here comes my recipe for simple Bruschetta, or Italian toasts. They can be made on the grill … Read more

Homemade Chappati

I’ve been really blessed to meet so many amazing people since I started this blog. People are happy to share their cooking ideas and recipes all the time and more often than ever does the topic of conversation with complete strangers, new and old friends and my family turn to healthy food, ethnic cuisine and just getting back to basics when it comes to bringing everyone around the table for a meal to remember.

I was invited to the home of a Pakistani family who lives in the Chicago suburbs so that I could learn and share with you how to make homemade roti, or bread, also known as chappati.  Chappati is an unleavened flat bread that is dry cooked over flame and not stuffed or layered with ghee (clarified butter) like the another popular Indian-style flat bread called paratha.

How to Make Homemade Bread Crumbs

I love recipes that recycle and re-use foods that are beyond comfortable consumption but  just need to be broken down a bit in order to be perfectly good again. I think that’s the case with blessed bread and all the blessings that come with extending food to serve more purpose than throwing it away as soon as we think we’ve run out of options for it.

Sweet Bread Rolls

You might not have heard much from me lately, but rest assured I’m in the kitchen cooking up lots of recipes to share with all of you. I’m home– in Ohio, helping family get through some pretty difficult times. Amidst it all, the baking and cooking, testing and developing healthy and halal dishes I think you’ll love is motivating me to be in a place where I’m happiest and that is most therapeutic to me and my family.

This recipe for sweet bread rolls not only warms up the kitchen with the smell of freshly baked dough, but these little bunches go well with just about any dinner you put on the table.  We’ve had them with soups & stews, used them to dunk in pasta sauces and alongside roasted meats. They freeze wonderfully so make these ahead of time, especially if you’re expecting guests soon. That would be one less menu item to prepare on the day your guests arrive.

This is how I’m staying warm in the midst of snowstorms that keep alternating between Chicago and Cleveland- two cities I’d been planning to be traveling back and forth from at this time, but as we all know, Allah (God) is the best of all Planners…

Enjoy the recipe–and stay warm with those you love.
