Okay, so by now you all know that Patchi has to be one of my most favorite chocolates in the whole wide world. Truly, it was love at first bite for me. Which is why I convince them to give away these beautiful bundles to you. I’m looking out for your chocolate interests, folks. Well, the folks at Patchi don’t ... Read More »
I stumbled upon Modern Muslim Home online a while ago and instantly realized how beautiful their work was–and that it should be sold in stores like Home Goods, Kohl’s and Target- you know, those stores we all shop at but might not choose some of the hanging decor with inspirational quotes simply because we’re looking for something more, well, Islamic ...

While fasting the other day, I overheard someone talking about a magnificent drink that was very tropical in nature and was actually something I had been meaning to make in a long while, stopping short at the inclusion of alcohol, of course. My taste buds were so keen to trying this drink that I searched my cabinets and found everything ... Read More »
My entire house has been under construction for several months now, and we’re living right in the midst of it. My kitchen is functional, but not exactly one that I’m accustomed to, partially because I keep thinking of all the ways I want it to be in the future, insha’allah, but also because I refuse to unpack every single kitchen ...

In fact, every house we visit during Eid, will have delectable sweets/desserts served to their guests. It is definitely a day to celebrate the long days of fasting in Ramadan and indulge that sweet tooth a bit, if ... Read More »
I don’t know about the next person, but I love jersey scarves. They are so soft and comfortable to wear that I even sometimes swap them as a wrap instead of a hijab (head covering). Nowadays, they’re popular, too- even in the summer, but only if you find the all natural and breathable kind like Nahda Designs carries. I love all the variety of fun summer ... Read More »
One of the very first Indian dishes I ever tried were samosas and their corresponding chutneys- one sweet sauce made with tamarind and the other with cilantro. Often times when you visit an Indian restaurant, it’s one of the appetizers; it’s also a common trio to be served within the Indo-Pakistani community at Iftar time, or at the breaking of ...

At the very first Halal Food Tour by Sameer’s Eats that took place in Irvine, CA I met some of the most amazing and humble people who I liked the instant I met them. The night before the tour, Sameer invited all of the volunteers and myself to dinner at MAS Islamic Chinese Restaurant in Anaheim. I had no idea ... Read More »
