Date Nut Balls Rolled in Coconut or Pistachio

Date Nut Balls Rolled in Coconut or Pistachio | My Halal Kitchen

I have loved dates for a very long time. I do think they’re one of the world’s best food, and completely more versatile than they’re often understood to be. They’re not just for desserts, as in the recipe I’m about to show you, but they’re wonderful in salads, great to cook with when dried (I love when they’re part of a ... Read More »

Beef Samosa Puff Pastries

Beef Samosa Puff Pastries | My Halal Kitchen

If you’ve never tasted keema, or that wonderfully spiced Indian-style ground beef, you’re totally missing out on some great flavor. Surely every family makes it a little different- even I have a few different versions, but for samosas I like to recreate a certain flavor. The first time I ever had it was at a suhoor in which I was ... Read More »

Strawberry, Pineapple, Mango and Spinach Smoothie: A Healthy Suhoor or Iftar Recipe

Green Smoothie | My Halal Kitchen

I’m not really sure where I got the inspiration for this ‘green smoothie’ recipe, but I think it was the multitude of magazines and sites online talking about detoxing. I am not big on fad diets or any kind of dieting at all, really- just overall healthy eating as a lifestyle and something that is committed to through a definite change ... Read More »

Classic Tiramisu- Without the Alcohol

Tiramisu in glass dish

Tiramisu, the quintessential Sicilian dessert, and the ultimate party food.  Although I’m (half) Sicilian, I didn’t grow up with this dessert at family dinner tables. I’m not exactly sure why no one ever made it, but it took for me to travel to Italy and taste the real deal for the first time to be hooked, over and over again.  Needless ... Read More »

Non-Alcoholic Piña Colada Drink

pina colada in pink cups

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 »
