Guest Post: Oreo Vanilla Pudding with Salted Caramel

A couple of days back I was going through my newsfeed and came across the blog ‘UrduMom’. The word ‘Urdu’ in the title caught my interest and I immediately started reading her posts on recipes, travels, parenting & more. I messaged her on her Facebook page admiring her writing and how she is sharing her experiences of teaching Urdu to her children so it benefits Pakistani expats around the world. Turns out the person behind the site is Tamania, who…

Strawberry Coconut Milkshake

The secret ingredient to this rich, creamy and absolutely refreshing strawberry coconut milkshake is frozen strawberries! I am absolutely loving strawberry season in Karachi. I know that we can make loads of fancy desserts with this beautiful red fruit, my absolute favorite has to be milkshakes. Creamy, refreshing and taking literally minutes to prepare they are just SO good! Plus ever since I learnt how to freeze strawberries, making milkshakes has become even simpler. All you need to do is…

Shahi Tukray

Shahi Tukray is a traditional Pakistani dessert made with fried bread slices soaked in cardamom & saffron infused milk. A Desi version of a bread & butter pudding.  One of my favorite traditional Pakistani desserts has to be Shahi Tukray – deep-fried slices of bread soaked in a creamy cardamom and saffron scented milk mixture. Left to soak in the fridge for a couple of hours and the end result is truly divine! Similar to an American bread & butter…

Caramel Chocolate Brownies

These caramel chocolate brownies are requested by everyone – fudgy, chocolaty and deliciously moist! So addictive that you need to have another piece! If I had to pick a dessert that I made the most at home, it would probably be chocolate brownies. Or wait the one bowl chocolate cake is a close second but these brownies are just love! I discovered this particular recipe on the King Arthur Flour website a couple of years ago – the brownies are…

Granola Pudding Parfait

This granola pudding parfait is a sinfully delicious version on the breakfast classic. Toasted granola on the bottom followed by vanilla pudding, banana’s and dulche de leche. Here’s my next recipe post in my Nora got Sweet Tooth granola series. The last recipe was healthy & crunchy chicken tenders. This one is a complete opposite! Definitely not for the calorie conscious. To be honest, I thought that coming up with a dessert recipe for granola would be easy. Turns out…

Cheese Balls with Butter Puff Crackers

“These assorted cheese balls look pretty and are a cinch to make. Serve with Peek Freans Butter Puff crackers and impress the guests at your next party” I love the concept of appetizers – finger foods usually served before a meal or between mealtimes. Sometimes called hors d’oeuvres, antipasti, or starters they can range from the simple to the complex depending on the amount of time you have and the occasion one is making them for. Tiny little bites to…

Banana Bread

I have tried out quite a few recipes of banana bread over the years but this particular recipe has to be the best I have tried. It’s by Curtis Stone who who is one of my favorite celebrity chefs courtesy MasterChef Australia (need to watch the latest season). A friend had requested me to make it for her, and she loved it so much that she promptly ordered three more.Turns out it was the only thing that her sister (who…
