A New Week in Meals

At a family gathering today, we met with several members of my extended family whom I haven’t seen since before or during the wedding. And naturally, everyone wanted to know how I was adjusting to the marriage and how I was doing with the cooking department. I’m getting tired really quickly of people acting all…

Custom Kitchen Delivery- Part 3

I realized I never really continued writing about the biggest home renovation project we went through. I started off by writing about how we came up with the design, taking into account some key elements, then I wrote about all the changes we had to meet to get there. But then, some bigger things got…

What’s Cooking Beirut? Not Much, Apparently

As someone who considers cooking and baking as ┬ásome of her hobbies, the annual cooking festival is an event I look forward to all year long. I love scouring the stands in search for new innovations and recipes, things that I can later replicate in my own kitchen. And I also look forward to discovering…

Always Tired

I have got to stop falling asleep on the couch. That’s it. As cute as it may seen the first fifty time, doing so every single night is actually starting to drain me of my energy. Isn’t that funny? What’s also funny is how easily we as humans can settle into routines and mine has…

In The Kitchen

As I was thinking about what to write for today’s post, I heard something on TV┬áthat resonated with me: the best ingredient you can put in your food is love. I couldn’t agree more. Food is important to all of us, but as a newly married woman, everyone wants to know how I’m doing with…

Inspiration in the Kitchen

It’s been a constant running joke that my future husband will probably starve and/or we’ll be turning to ordering in because I’ll either have no time to cook or I won’t be good at it. It’s honestly not one of the things I enjoy hearing about and yet it always comes up. I don’t know…

Enough With The Cooking Jokes, Already!

When it comes to marriage, is cooking and food all people seem to know and talk about? Is it what makes or breaks the union of two people? Because it seems to me, every time we find ourselves at a social gathering, people always have to bring up my cooking skills. Here are a sample…

Up For All The Chores

You’d think that having lived alone for a year would’ve gotten me used to doing all the housework. But the truth is it hasn’t really done much because being a graduate student is a lot different than being a working woman- and I have a lot more space to take care of now than I…

Unpacking

Happy Labor Day everyone! A day that commemorates all the efforts we put in all year long at our jobs, a day to celebrate the hard work we all do. And it was made even nicer by falling on a Friday, meaning a long weekend for the majority of us! Except it wasn’t exactly a…

Adventures in Muffin Making

It was a busy weekend, and yet somehow, I found myself in the kitchen on Saturday afternoon chopping up chocolate and filling in cupcake molds because I was craving muffins. With the help of my fantastic and comprehensive guide on pastry and baking, that giant pink book I had gotten for my birthday, I set…
