Baking: Banana Chocolate Tarts

For Christmas one of my presents was the “Double Delicious” cookbook by Jessica Seinfeld (Jerry Seinfeld’s wife). Last year I purchased “Deceptively Delicious” and completed nearly all of her recipes!

I am beyond embarassed, and slightly having a good laugh at myself… This just goes to show you I am indeed no “Foodie”! Remember last week I baked Snickerdoodle Cookies, and made some Gingerbread Dough? Both of those recipes called for cream of tartar. Can you guess which one I used? I thought it was […] Read more…

Fun in the Bath With Glow Sticks!

I had this old box of glow sticks that my mom brought over ages ago from Canada. I am sure you can find them at any party shop in Dubai! I used about 8 of them and put them in the tub, turned off the lights, and surprised my mermaid baby! Did she ever have […] Read more…

LO goes to playschool from 8-12pm (three times per week), I want to be sure she has enough energy and nutrients to keep her going during those hours!

What’s for lunch today?

Homemade french fries (in the shape of hearts no less) and some grilled salmon! *To grill the salmon, I used a tiny bit of olive oil and seasonings. Cut up and speared them with little toothpicks for fun toddler eating! *For the hearts I sliced up one medium sized potato and then individually punched each piece out with […] Read more…

Turkey Sandwich

A few days ago I purchased a package of turkey breasts (I hate calling them breasts) for roughly 27 AED at Spinneys. They were going to expire tomorrow, so I gathered up some energy and decided to fry them up! From two “breasts” I was able to cut them in to 10 thinner slices (thanks […] Read more…

Breakfast is served!

These fun little molds make eating eggs CUTE! I wish I could tell you where to buy them in Dubai, but I found these in Austria at a local supermarket. Perhaps the Japanese dollar store “Daiso” would carry something similar? They are so easy to use, just hard boil your egg as usual, and as […] Read more…

Blueberries

I am usually pretty reluctant on purchasing blueberries in Dubai because I can not justify spending 25 AED and upwards for something I know is so cheap back home. But check these out from Union-Coop (At Etihad Mall) for 12 AED! Read more…

Breakfast of champions!

I always offer my little one a variety of things to nibble on in the morning (not saying she eats it all, she is like a bird!). Bananas, dates (from the frozen section in Bateel), kiwi, and french toast. She then get’s one syringe (told you she eats like a bird!) of her vitamins. I […] Read more…
