Shrimp Linguine

Shrimp Linguine

...We were aimlessly walking around until I came across an empty restaurant with a barely visible menu plastered outside. I squinted through the snow (yes it had started snowing at that point) and saw they had pizza and pasta, and that was enough for me. We walked in on that cold winter afternoon, and we never looked back. It became our little haven, our happy place, and boy do I miss going there ever since Covid hit. Everything on their menu is "chef's kiss" but my favorite is their shrimp linguine. I've been missing it so much that I decided to recreate it at home, and it turned out pretty darn amazing...

Cheesey Garlic Breadsticks

Cheesey Garlic Breadsticks

I can never order pizza and not order breadsticks. Provided it's pretty much the same thing, just without the sauce, that you ultimately end up dipping the breadsticks in, but they just taste so good! For me, it's the garlicky butter. But as you guys know, I love making pizza at home, and for those days, I always make some cheesy breadsticks to go with. Here is a super simple recipe, something you'll find yourself making as a side for so many things, Lasagne, Penne Alfredo, Tomato Basil Fettuccine and so many more dishes!

I've loved these little bundles of cheese for as long as I can remember. My mom used to make a huge pyrex dish of them, so it would last two days, and I would keep sneaking into the kitchen and scarf one down while no one was watching until I'd made a huge dent, after which I would run upstairs and pretend to sleep so I wouldn't be caught!

Creamy Mushroom Spinach Chicken

I love a good chicken steak. Sue me. I'm from Lahore, so steak doesn't always mean a lean cut of beef, medium rare. It could mean a deliciously charred piece of chicken, topped with Pakistan's favorite sauce, a flavor infused cream. That's what this is. In fact, this recipe rang so true as a Pakistani favorite that many of you made it within a couple days of me posting a detail lacking recipe on my instagram, so this one's for you guys! The full recipe in all it's glory...

Honey Butter Roasted Vegetables

Honey Butter Roasted Vegetables

I love the sweetness that's brought out by caramelizing the vegetables under high heat, and a little honey in my favorite marinade brings out even more flavor. The bitterness from the charred edges, the sweetness from the caramelized honey and the earthy undertones from the thyme just work wonders. I love the versatility of this recipe is what I truly love about it. There are times when I use a combination of 4-5 vegetables, and other times I just add potatoes and whatever vegetable that needs to be used up...
