Thai Beef Curry Stew

Thai Beef Chicken | My Halal Kitchen

This recipe comes from Derya Singhsumalee, a former teacher colleague of mine who is such a fun and interesting person.  She is very well-traveled, is of Turkish ethnicity and married to a man from a Thai Muslim family. In the school lunch room we used to talk quite a bit about cultural diversity and, of course, food. She was very familiar ... Read More »

Quick and Easy Chicken Wings

Quick & Easy Chicken Wings

My love of eating chicken wings began in college when I really got a taste of how wonderful they were- mild, hot and spicy and always with some sort of creamy dip and a side of fries. It’s the college kid ting to do, right?  Well, the saucy wings weren’t the first kind I was exposed to, but the first kind ... Read More »

Chicken Pita Rolls with Hummus & Tabbouleh

Chicken Pita Rolls | My Halal Kitchen

I had no idea what a hit these pita rolls would be. They seemed so easy to make and with such a familiar taste to them, I didn’t even think they would be very interesting to other people. When I instagrammed making these several months ago, so many people were intrigued and wanted the recipe. I totally understand why now- ... Read More »

It’s a wonder I haven’t posted this recipe earlier. I’ve been making it for many years and it’s considered on of our favorite healthy go-to soups, but I wasn’t sure how many others would be interested to know how make it.  After numerous requests, I had my answer.

It’s so hard to believe the month of Ramadan is nearly over, which is a bit sad for us because we love it so much. It’s such a time of being scheduled and focused and distraction-free. However bittersweet the end is, there is also a great reward in the three-day long celebration of ‘Eid ul Fitr, where we can enjoy ... Read More »

Halal To Your Door {and a BBQ Box Giveaway}

Cooking Taaza Steaks on the Indoor Cast Iron Grill

It’s one thing to have halal meats available at my local grocer, all nicely packaged and ready for me to take home to cook as needed; it’s a whole other pleasure to have it delivered right to my door- literally.  And that’s exactly what I’ve been experiencing with Taaza2u, a Chicagoland halal meat (and other grocery items) delivery service of ...

Buffalo Wings

Buffalo Wings | My Halal Kitchen

One of my favorite summertime recipes is for Buffalo Wings. The first time I ever had them was way back in college- it was the late night food of choice with friends- we didn’t have a care in the world about eating spicy food at that hour, or any food at all for that matter. It was quick, easy, inexpensive, ... Read More »
