June 2016: Food + Favourites!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's the last day of June!
Hope you've had a good month. It has been all about the Ramadan routine here - awake all night with sleep happening during the day. I love a summer Ramadan. Yes, the fasts are incredibly long but it's amazing what your body can adjust to. We've been enjoying plenty of delicious food at Iftar and been indulging in all our seasonal favourites - including strawberries and cream! Follow me in snapchat for plenty of updates - username is muslimgirlbakes.

The garden has been bursting with all the beautiful flowers and even the lawn managed to sort itself out much to my father's delight. Also this month, I was super happy to have been featured in this article. A big thank you and jazakallah khair to you all for your support. Here's to a blessed end to the month of Ramadan and then, Eid!
