Six Years.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Today is my blog's 6th birthday!!
Six years ago on a whim, I decided to set up my food blog. I had no idea what I was doing. All I knew is that I baked and cooked a lot of great food in this house and wanted to share my recipes with the world.
 Fast forward to today and the site has grown beyond my wildest dreams. Thankfully, my love of sharing recipes has not decreased one bit. I have however over the years, learnt how to blog in the best way for myself.
 If you go back to the start of the site, you'll see that I literally posted new recipes every single day. It was great fun but really tiring. I'm so glad that I now have a balance in my blogging life. I've learnt over the years that planning is the key to posting regularly.
 I now shoot all my recipes a month in advance and only post twice a week. It keeps me and everyone around me sane and lets you have a chance to catch up with what is new here this week.
One thing that I am dying to start properly though are videos! I love sharing tutorials with you guys on my Instagram Stories but am definitely looking to upping my game and posting properly on YouTube. Do you watch recipe videos on YouTube? Which kind would you like to see from me? Fast ones or slower ones with more explanation.
 I want to finish by saying thank you to you. Thank you for taking my recipes into your kitchen and making them your own. I love hearing your success stories and anecdotes. Thank you for letting me be, in the smallest way, a part of your life.
 And as for all the sunflower photos, I just wanted to document them here. I'm still amazed that they grew from seeds alone. They're tall, strong and beautiful all at the same time. I've been reliably informed that these ones won't grow again next year so I thought I would capture them forever here. Leaving you now with a beautiful caption that I came across on this account this morning:


Keep me in your duas please!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

  4. My go to page for recipes. Love trying new recipes and coming back for old, tried and tested recipes. I used to love when you used to share your recipes on Snapchat in video form. Would love to see more on YouTube. Fast and slow I would watch regardless.

  5. Assalam u Alaikum. Hope you are well Insha Allah. Happy blog anniversary and insha Allah many many more years to come :)
    I follow your blog and read all your posts, I get really happy when I see a new post up :) I especially like the step by step pics that you put up in your posts.
    Would love to see your videos on YouTube, I love watching recipe videos on YouTube. A little detailed recipe video is better than the very fast ones.
    Have tried out some of your recipes and all turned out nice. Especially the lamb chop biryani, yummm! And your really soft naan recipe is a big hit at home, it's my go to recipe now for naan. Gives such soft pillowy naan, it's amazing!
    Thank you so much for the recipes and your posts, keep them coming and if you make your YouTube videos, I for one will surely be watching them :)
    Have a good day :)
