Stop Overeating

3 Tips to Help Stop Overeating

I don’t like diets, they’re too restrictive and typically just leave you unhappy. And that’s why they fail. I personally find it much easier to concentrate on what you’re already eating, and work to stop overeating. Granted, even that isn’t easy. We all fall for it, especially when that one favorite food of ours is there. Now, before I get into the tips that I, or some of my friends, use to help avoid over-indulging, I want to make a...

Flavor God

Flavor God: Shrimp ‘n’ Gravy

Hello Bumble Bees, Happy Spring! So glad the weather is a lot warmer than it was a few weeks ago. Can you believe it’s still snowing in some states? I don’t think I’ve ever been so thankful for Georgia’s bipolar weather til now, because I’d hate to still be in a snowpocalypse. PHEW! Anyway, I am sorry I’ve been so blah lately. School kicked in full gear, so I am trying to keep my balance between not dropping out, and...

French Toast

Cinnamon French Toast Crunch

French Toast is one of those things that I really have a love hate relationship with. When other people are having it, I really want it, but I’m never inclined to order it on my own. However, there’s a specific french toast I’m in love with from a place called Blue Moon in Baltimore. They have this awesome version of french toast that’s made with Captain Crunch and I miss it terribly. Since Maryam was coming up to New York,...

Pita Pockets

Shredded Chicken Pita Pockets

When I was a little kid, I used to love pita bread. My mom would stuff it with leftovers and hand it to us, and we’d eat it up like it was brand new. But as I got older, I stopped loving the pita so much, and I’m not sure why. I recently jumped back into the world of pita (especially given my new found love of hummus) and I haven’t looked back. Those little pockets can hold pretty much...

Chicken Nachos

“Game Day” Shredded Chicken Nachos

I love nachos, I get them at every event they are sold. Chicken nachos are even better. Chicken nachos during the Superbowl are probably the best. Simple but flavorful nachos recipe you can put together in 10 minutes. The ingredients are simple enough, you pretty much just need your basics, and oven, and a group of people that love nachos. If you wanna make the shredded chicken at home, you’ll need a little over an hour to prepare, but you...

Shredded Chicken

Shredded Chicken

Shredded chicken is a simple to make ingredient that can be used in so many things. It takes a little bit of time to make, but I prefer it over canned shredded chicken any day. Why? Because I know what quality chicken I used, what ingredients I put in, and I can add some flavors and seasoning to it if I want as well. So, here you go! Shredded Chicken Prep Time: 2 minutes Cook Time: 60 minutes Total Time: 62 minutes Ingredients...

Fried Chicken

Oven “Fried” Chicken

I developed a love for fried chicken as a little girl. I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia. Being born in a very strict Arabic culture, I didn’t have lots of opportunities to go out, explore the city, and meet new people. Plus, my dad worked all the time – Thursdays were his only days off. I looked forward to those Thursdays. We would go to my favorite restaurant, this place named Al-Baik on Al Marifah in Mecca, we would...

Baked Old Bay French Fries

French fries, freedom fries, pommes frites, whatever you wanna call it, I love it. Probably one of my favorite foods on earth. Sometimes, when I’m trying to figure out where I want to eat, my decision is dependent solely on whether or not that place serves fries (and whether or not they’re good). Unfortunately though, fries aren’t all that great for you. So I decided to start making them at home, and adding a little MD flare to it (you...

Jalapeno Baked Chicken

Jalapeño Baked Chicken

Chicken breast is the staple of any healthy meat eaters diet. It’s lean, it’s cheap, and it’s easy to make. However, it’s also pretty flavorless and dries out easily. So every time I meal prep my chicken, I try my best to make sure it’s as flavorful as possible, but also tender and moist. I don’t always succeed, trust me, but when I do, I try my best to remember the recipe for future meal preps. And so I present...
