Oven-Baked BBQ Chicken

I wasn’t sure how I was going to post this recipe during the summer since everyone wants a good BBQ recipe that actually uses a grill, but here I was preparing an oven-baked BBQ chicken recipe because that’s what I do most of the time. I know how to grill, but I don’t like to … Read more

Watermelon & Feta Salad

I have been waiting to make this salad since the winter time. Watermelon is my favorite fruit, mainly because it hydrates the body as you eat it, perfect to eat during non-fasting hours in Ramadan, so during this time I eat it as much as possible and in as many ways as possible.

Classic Tiramisu- Without the Alcohol

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 … Read more

Non-Alcoholic Piña Colada Drink

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 … Read more
