Blueberry coconut cake is the topic of the day. I made this cake about two weeks ago and we loved it. Not that surprising.

Not healthy by any means (unless coconut milk and fruit count as healthy) but it is mildly sweet and makes the best accompaniment to coffee.
Do you eat cake for breakfast?

I can’t tell you how long I’ve waited to make this cake. It has been on my bake list for months now and laziness has kept me from creating it. It’s been perfect for us the few days leading into our trip – it served as dessert and doubled as breakfast. *hangs head in shame*…
Happy Thursday everyone! I’ve always wanted to do a Fire Department shot (because sometimes they have the coolest buildings) and just have never been brave enough. Thank A for this one. He encouraged me to cross the street, stand in front for a few shots and voila, here we are. I was hoping they wouldn’t…
Yesterday was my birthday. It was a super relaxing, albeit normal day, where I went about my work trying to forget that I’m yet another year older and somehow time seems to be flying by. The evening was spent binge watching shows, eating leftovers and splurging on cupcakes that a friend of mine made when he…

One of my favorite Middle Eastern dishes to make is this spinach and meatballs combination. It’s ridiculously easy to throw together; it’s healthy; and it is delicious. Recently, I made it for two different dinners we were hosting, where it immediately became a hit. If you want to get your hands wet with Arabic cooking but…
