Current Favourites #1: Chocolate Mug Cake and More!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's a current favourites round-up from me. I love reading these kinds of posts (current faves include this and this) on a Sunday afternoon especially while enjoying a hot cup of coffee. So, I thought I would bring my own version of them back. This week, a smoothie obsession, those Portuguese custard tarts and a pasta bake craving. Plus 6 food ideas for your upcoming week!


I hit 17,000 followers on Instagram this week. Thanks for following along if you do!

The green smoothie with banana + baby spinach + apple juice + lime juice.
