Brunch – Steak and Eggs on Garlic Naan

Some mornings, I wake up and I’m starving but I’m just tired of the regular breakfast foods. I love steak and eggs as much as the next guy, but sometimes I want something a little different. Those days, I sort of sit there and contemplate not eating breakfast because I can’t imagine what I want to eat. But sometimes I get lucky and I get inspired! So this morning, when I got home from taking Marbel to the park, I just...

10 Things You Need To Know to Not Burnout As An Entrepreneur

Hello Sunshines, Earlier this week, I attended a Lady Founder’s Entrepreneur Brunch hosted by the Ladypreneur League at WeWork, Buckhead. During this brunch, women from different backgrounds discussed their struggles as entrepreneurs and how to recover from feeling burnt out. Whether you’re a traveling chef, trying to promote your brand as a blogger, a fashion designer, or work a corporate job – we have all felt like we have lost that fire to keep going. When you wake up in the mornings...

Deliciously Crispy Oven Baked Hot Wings

Anybody who knows me, knows my love of hot wings. I usually order wings once a week (at least), but given that they’re deep fried I always feel just a little guilty eating them. I’ve tried to make baked wings quite a few times, but have failed miserably because: 1) couldn’t get them crisp or 2) they would get too dry. But, I persisted and thus I present to you a delicious hot wings recipe! Apparently the trick I was missing...

It truly makes my heart all happy! Today, I will be sharing the exciting new Music...

Simple Yet Perfect Spicy Philly Cheesesteak

Ramadan cravings have been in full effect for me, and my newest craving has been a Philly Cheesesteak. However, in trying to stay on the healthier side of things, I wanted to try and make my own Philly and fashion it after the best Philly I’ve ever had, from some no-name place in South Philadelphia. Personally, I’m not remotely a fan of Geno’s or Pat’s, so if you’re looking to replicate that, you may have to look elsewhere. I like my Philly...

Medjool Date

Medjool Date Truffles

I love Medjool dates. They’re delicious, sweet, hydrating, and packed full of nutrients. That’s why they’re so great to have when you’re fasting during Ramadan. And now, since Ramadan has started, I made myself a few days worth of medjool date truffles. For those of you who don’t know what Ramadan is, it’s one month every year where Muslims can’t eat, drink, smoke, chew gum, or really consume anything from sun rise to sun down every day. In NYC, that means...

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...

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...

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...
