Beard & Brunch – ChalkPoint Kitchen NYC

Welcome to the 2nd installment of our Beard & Brunch series. This time, Maryam and I had the opportunity to collaborate with Chalk Point Kitchen in NYC to sample their brand new Spring 2017 menu. Chalk Point is an awesome restaurant with a farm-to-table approach, with a changing menu based on seasonally available foods, sourced locally. When Maryam first spoke to the restaurant, she thought it would be hard to convince me to want to go, but not at all....

Beard & Brunch – Three Seat Espresso

Hello Latte Lovers! Recently, Nabeel & I collaborated with an Australian Barber & Coffee shop called Three Seat Espresso & Barber. Since I’ve moved up to New York, we have been on the hunt to try unique restaurants and coffee shops. We look for three things when trying out new places:  the quality of food, ambiance and staff. And when we came across ThreeSeatEspresso‘s instagram profile, they seemed to have exactly what we were looking for. We have been wanting...

Breakfast Diary: Not Your Average Grilled Cheese

Hello beautiful people! I’ve officially moved to Brooklyn, New York as a married woman. And being married comes with the perks of cooking delicious food for our family of 2!

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...

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...

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?

Shredded Chicken Prep Time: 2 minutes Cook Time: 60 minutes Total Time: 62 minutes Ingredients...
