Interview by My Halal Kitchen

I never thought I would be saying this ever but I was interviewed by Yvonne Maffei of My Halal Kitchen in January.  It was a very exciting moment for me because I had been following her blog for over a year and loved everything about it!  So, when I was contacted to conduct a giveaway and interview, I naturally seized the moment.  It was a true honour and a great blessing.

Check it my interview here to read all about how I started my business and philosophy behind it.

Thank you for all your support!


Space Lapbook Guest Post

Lapbooks are a wonderful way to teach your child about a theme or unit of studies. It’s quite popular with in the world of homeschooling and can be tons of fun to make with your kids. However, it doesn’t need to be limited to just homeschooling. Anyone can make one. So, I wrote a guest post for HafsaCreates on Space Lapbooks – give it a try!  Below is a video I made (don’t mind all the awkward commentary…lol) to give you a look at what my munchkin and I created over the course of one month.  

Try it out at home.  For full instruction and links for all the printables, visit HafsaCreates. Get creative and explore any topic that interests your child. It makes a great project to work on over the weekends!

Let me know if you give this a go.  I’d love to hear about it!


Handmade Gift for a Princess!

Sewing has always been one of my passions.  I’m not the best but I do like getting creative and try new ideas.

When my niece was just 2 month, I sewed her these little soft shoes.  I had never made booties before but I figured I would try it out.  Not bad for the first time…

I also made this little pillowcase top along with a matching bib.  Sewing miniature clothes can be much easier to sew because of it’s small scale.

Try it out some day!


PS.  I’ll post the tutorials one day soon!

Fluffy Pancake Mix


I’m tired of using the boxed pancake mix. Not only is it expensive, it’s also full of ingredients I don’t want my family consuming. So, I finally created a recipe which was just to my liking. Even if you switch all your ingredients to organic (and free-run eggs), it’ll still be a fraction of the cost of any boxed mix.

You can even do what I do – quadruple the recipe for the dry ingredients and store in an air-tight container. Whenever you feel for pancakes, just pull out 2 cups of the dry mix and add the wet ingredients listed in the recipe. It’s so convenient.

Go on and give it a try.  You’ll never want to turn back!

Fluffy Pancake Recipe
2 cups        all-purpose flour
2 tsp           baking powder
1/2 tsp        sea salt
4 Tbsp        cane sugar
1 2/3 cup    milk
1/3 cup       vegetable oil
2                  eggs

  1. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.  Then mix all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  2. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together until well blended.  
  3. Preheat the frying pan or skillet.  Add a few drops of oil and cook your pancakes. 
  4. Makes about 10-12 large pancakes.  

Serve with pure maple syrup or homemade strawberry sauce!
