Cloud Eggs Recipe

May
18

After a few days of my husband bugging me to try a new “trendy” way of making eggs, I finally caved in and tried it. I was so pleasantly surprised. They’re really simple to make and pretty tasty. You can spruce them up by adding a side of breakfast potatoes, some toast, avocados, really anything you like. Or, keep it carb-free if you’re trying to shed a few pounds before summer.

Ingredients

2 eggs A pinch of salt

Pepper

Directions

Separate egg whites from egg yolks. Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form, add salt. On parchment paper, make 2 dollops of egg whites with a groove in the center. Bake at 475F for 3 mins. Add egg yolk to the center, then bake again for another 3 mins. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Baseball Cap Hijab Tutorial

Apr
25

Salam lovelies!

If you’re like me and want to try to avoid a hijab tan line on your forehead, then here’s an easy way to wear a hat to protect your face from the sun. I like the how casual a baseball cap can look, especially for soccer games or picnics, where you don’t want to draw too much attention, but still want to look put together and effortless. This is my favorite way of wearing a baseball cap. It’s easy and no fuss about how to tuck your hair in or where. Hope you enjoy and try it out for yourself! Let me know how it works.

Spring into Fashion

I rarely ever do this, but the a few days ago, I went shopping just to shop. I usually know what I’m looking, however, I just felt like getting inspired by something. Do you ever not know what you’re looking for, but when you see it you know it? That’s exactly how I felt about these pants.

High Tea Baby Shower

So while I’ve been away, I’ve helped plan a couple of parties. Mostly baby showers for close friends. The latest was a high tea themed baby shower. We had so much fun putting it together and it turned out amazing! We decided to do a long table with place settings for a true high tea feel.

Chicken Shish Tawook Recipe

May
22

I made this chicken shish tawook recipe last week as a quick easy dinner and it turned out amazing. It was so flavorful and satisfying.  I always look forward to the grilled veggies with the yellow rice. If you know you’re going to make this dish, you can go ahead and marinate the chicken in the morning. However, I had it marinating for only 2 hours and it still turned out great.

Fool-Proof Friday: Part 2

May
15

I made a post about formulating an outfit a few weeks ago. This is another formula that I typically go for when I’m looking for something a bit more sophisticated. At the same time, it can be dressy or casual. So the formula goes:

  1. Choose a top and bottom of your choice
  2. Pair it with a button-up shirt underneath
  3. Add a necklace

Ricotta Pancakes Recipe

May
12

Don’t be scared if you don’t like ricotta. This recipe is amazing and doesn’t taste like ricotta cheese at all.  My husband ordered a version of it at brunch one day and ever since I’ve been trying different recipes to duplicate it. I’ve combined and tweaked a few recipes and came up with the perfectly fluffy and moist pancakes. I make it almost every weekend. I serve it with whatever fruits I have on hand with either maple syrup or whipped cream.

Friday Nasiha: Be Good to your Parents

May
08

First and foremost, this advice applies to me before anyone else. That’s what’s speaking to me at the moment. Which is also pretty good timing, considering this weekend is Mother’s Day. Islam really emphasizes the importance of obeying your parents. It is extremely important to, not only obey, but also let them be pleased with you. I read a lot of hadiths and Quranic verses but this website summed it up pretty well. All of it is important, but these are a few that really stuck with me.
