Strawberry cream cake

This is one of the softest cakes I have made, goes down a treat with mashAllah, especially with a cup of tea! Not difficult to make at all, try it to see what I mean.

Want something quick? Delicious? Tasty? Vegetarian? Moroccan style butternut squash rice is the one for you! :D (I should go into advertisement lol). We had a butternut squash hanging around, so I thought why not make something yummy out of it...

Batata wa baad (potato and egg breakfast)

This is a typical Lebanese breakfast, easy to make and delicious to enjoy. It is the kind of breakfast you can sit around as a family and enjoy it from the same plate - sunnah style! Boiling the eggs and potato in advance and leaving them in the fridge means your breakfast is virtually ready in the morning!

Prawn saag (prawn & spinach curry)

I was at work, yet thinking what should I cook when I get home (being the sad person I am :p). So I asked my Bengali colleague what is her favourite dish, so that I can cook it. She told me it is prawn saag - and told me how she makes it. It sounded straight forward and delicious, so I nipped into the supermarket on my way home, and it sure was worth it....

Mushroom & potato curry

My sister likes to go meat free on some days, so she requested a mushroom curry. I thought why not bulk it up a bit and make mushroom and potato curry instead. Simple, tasty and well...vegetarians.
