Life is about balance and whenever I feel a bit off balance like I did this past week, I know I need a pick me up lunch that won’t make me regret every bite after I was done enjoying it. Sometimes hiding in my kitchen and whipping up something as light and healthy as this [...]
In my never ending search for a Mexican restaurant with great tasting Mexican food, I stumbled one cold winter night into Cantina Laredo, a US-Chain Mexican restaurant sporting the slogan “Gourmet Mexican Food” with menu prices to match that slogan. The restaurant was very busy, softly lit and buzzing with diner’s chatter and
Even though I am a Vegetarian and quite a picky eater, I’ve always wanted to try new cuisines, exotic if that’s the correct term. We are still hung up on Indian, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese with a good mix of Thai thrown in for diversity. I think we once had a
If you are a follower of my blog -and instagram account- you might recognize my adoration of Dallah’s local bakery (post). Everything they make: the coffee, the Elba, the Ghraiba, etc. is a favorite of mine and I keep going back for more and would serve their products for my guests at my own gatherings (post) (post). Last [...]

Last weekend I was in my kitchen thinking about lunch when my eyes fell on a box of lasagna sheets. Of course, why not? So I made my favorite vegetarian lasagna an d snapped a few shots with my iPhone that I thought I’d share on my blog. So, what went inside my lasagna?
On Saturday I woke up pretty late and while trying to decided what to have for breakfast I remembered a conversation we had with friends over dinner on Thursday night discussing Socrates Bakery. I’ve wanted to try it for so long having heard many good things about it so I picked up the phone and
When I was in London last month TV ads about the new biscuit moments by Kellogg’s kept popping up on TV so I looked around for it and I found it in
I had a dinner party yesterday and I’ve decided to make the salads myself. I was leafing through my cookbooks when I saw a recipe for a salad with popcorn as an ingredient. At first I was really? Then I thought why not? The salad recipe I found
My dear friend and fellow blogger Bent Eldeera contacted me the night I was due to fly out of Kuwait for my vacation letting me know that she had made me one of my favorite dessert dishes, the Elba. An Elba is like a
A few days ago I received a big fat new cookbook from Diet Care. Being from Diet Care meant it wasn’t any ordinary cookbook, it was a “Healthy Cooking” cookbooks with recipes that would satisfy your appetite without adding to
A few days ago I received two big brown bags chock full of baby blue boxes from a new bakery in town, The Pastry Shop.
A long time ago my husband expressed a wish that we try and make our own waraq 3enab bel zait -stuffed vine leaves- at home. I don’t know why given
One of the healthiest Gergai3an’s I’ve received this year is for sure from Diet Center. What’s inside? Healthy stuff indeed: three jars with portion size and calorie intake written on top. One Mixed nuts and fruits, one date fingers, and one choco balls. All three have a calorie intake of 150 calories only, perfect for [...]
The other day I received a box of breaded shrimps, Japanese style, from a home business called Tempura Kuwait. When I opened it it looked exactly like Ninja Kabamaro’s Quraidis Maqli! The box contains about 6 pieces of shrimps that are breaded with the Japanese bread crumbs, panko I think they are called? They also [...]
Yesterday morning I woke up with the strangest craving for home made mini pizzas! I don’t know where that came from but I remember my excitement in my childhood if we were baking pizzas at home, how I would try and snatch the freshly grated
Yesterday we hosted the first Ramadan ghabga in our new apartment and we had so much fun! There is nothing better than a cosey home gathering with good food, good company, and laughter. The best thing is that it didn’t take much effort at all, just place
Imagine someone whose taste buds you trust, you know when they say that someone tastes good, then it does indeed taste good. When they don’t like something, then it will turn out horrible? Imagine then that this someone decides to
Continuing here from Part I of the Dathra Book Launch 80′s Party (post), for drinks we had soft drinks, Se77a bottled water (may 9e77a), sunkist -which was very popular-.
For some reason wordpress is eating up my Party post. I’ve written it three times already!!! It could be because its too long so I’ll have to sadly break it down and re-post it I bet everyone with an instagram had already seen -and felt like being invited to- the Dathra Book party I had at [...]
One of my GCC blogger friends once told me about a “Batates Oman” sandwich they adore. Apparently you fill two pieces of toast with the chips, drizzle hot sauce and Kraft spreadable cheese, and eat them and the combination is so good. The thing is, I’ve never seen the Chips Oman before in my life and never [...]
I’m a person who cannot resist samboosa. Given that I can polish off a platter of samboosa without looking twice, I limit myself to having it during Futoor in Ramadan and having it only baked instead of fried. Therefore, I have this
