Home-made Custard Danishes

I bought a roll of puff pastry with absolutely no clue what I would use it for; all I knew was that my tastebuds longed for something buttery and sweet. My Just Roll pastry dough sat in the fridge for a number of days before I decided to do a little googling to establish what...

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Fluffy White Chocolate Ganache frosting

Hello strangers!Long time no see. There won’t be much more see for another while after this either XD. A little something my sister told me just made me remember I had other personal obligations apart from my studies such as this blog. It’s been two whole years (going on 3 soon) that my blog has...

I dont always bake for a large congregation, but when i do-it’s normally eid day and i want the treats i bake to be perfect and enjoyed by everyone to it’s optimum. Unfortunately, YET AGAIN, the cupcakes i baked this eid did’nt quite fit my ideal of perfection and lacked in that  moistness i was...
Eid Treats: Custard Cookies

Eid Treats: Custard Cookies

I’m normally used to driving myself to exhaustion with food preparations and house cleaning the day before eid, but not this time. There were alot of things i wanted to try, so i thought- make a little something every day and store it till it is ready to be set on the table on the...
Homemade Pizza

Homemade Pizza

It’s crazy when i think about how easy it can be to replicate the pizza you get from your fast-food joint, or pretty much create an even BETTER pizza, at home. Provided you have the right utensils (a proper pizza pan!) and the right sauce of course. The SAUCE will either make or break a...

This blog post was due to be up weeks ago but i got caught up with preparing for my travels to Dubai! So, this recipe was inspired by my love for that distinct  red velvet cake taste. Not too sweet but just about right! As you may or may not know, red velvet cake typically...

Home-made Chocolate Waffle Dessert

Home-made Chocolate Waffle Dessert

Sorry guys, this isn’t exactly a recipe post. More like…a dessert construction post? Everything is ready made or just requires some dicing, melting or toasting. Soo, me and my siblings were supposed to go out for waffles and “bonding” time this weekend, but in the end- we decided to just resort to making it at...
Homemade Ferrero Rocher-style Sweets

Homemade Ferrero Rocher-style Sweets

This was not initially a planned post BUT since they seemed to receive so much attention- I figured, why not? These Ferraro rocher style sweets are only chocolate on the exterior but have a buttery shortbread center. The shortbread was actually my attempt at a Ma’amoul sweet with a hazelnut chocolate center (they’re Arabic semolina...
