10 Recipes for Halal Grub on Superbowl Sunday

Salsa

If there’s one thing I’ll take on Superbowl Sunday, it’s the fun of planning and executing the game-day menu. I’m not a fan of football, though. I don’t really know the rules of the game, despite being a cheerleader (which was a long time ago) and attending countless Friday night games during high school. Realistically, most of us girls were ... Read More »

I used to do a lot of traveling in the winter months- short escapes to warmer climates like anywhere in Florida or south of the border to Mexico.  Coming from the Midwest, I was indeed a  young snow bird of sorts. Sometimes I did it with the excuse of studying (i.e. taking intensive Spanish language courses in Merida, Yucatan Peninsula ... Read More »

Winter Salad with Cranberries & Nuts

Winter Salad with Cranberries | My Halal Kitchen

You might not think of salads as a winter time food, but actually this is one of my favorite times of year to enjoy them. Citrus is at its best in the winter, though it’s obviously not growing up here in the Midwest; it’s coming from wonderful groves in Florida, Arizona and California.  You can find fragrant meyer lemons, oranges ...
