Middle Eastern meat balls with eggplants and cilantro sauce : Welcoming the new year

I love being a housewife, I really do. I think I always had this in my mind when I was growing up. I wanted to have a life similar to the one my mom had. I always secretly wanted to go to the U.S like she did when she accompanied my father as he was getting his bachelor 29 years ago. I wanted to have the opportunity to learn English and get exposed to the western wold like she did. I wanted to have a family, kids, a nice home and a nice kitchen.



I realised that I wanted to be a housewife and not a working mother more than ever as I attended college 10 years ago. It was very hard to go to classes, project meetings, doing homework and writing reports and then come back home to attend to a husband and a baby girl, do the dishes, do laundry and clean up the house. And it didn't help that I am an introvert person. I needed my time alone to recharge after a long day at college which unfortunately I couldn't do.

How to prepare and use saffron for cooking Plus a giveaway

As promised her's a quick guide on how to use and take care of your delicate and expensive spice.








Buying:

Before you bring it home make sure to always buy the best quality saffron you can afford. Buy it in threads not powder to ensure quality and that you are not cheated upon. Iranian and Spanish saffron are the most well known for their quality.

Back from vacation, lessons learnt and future plans


Greetings my dear readers. It’s been a while since I last posted here and I am glad I’m back.

The last time I posted was just before we left on a three week trip to Iran. A trip that’s probably the greatest disappointment in my life but one with great life-long lessons.



I’ll be honest; I tend to over plan things sometimes. I am a big dreamer and sometimes I plan for things that I have no control over.




I have left Kuwait with the great expectation that I’ll be back with all those stunning pictures of all the exotic places that I'll be visiting and  that I can show on the blog. Of all the  delicious and authentic food that I'll be enjoying which  I can  share pictures of later on my Instagram feed.
