    Oven Baked Drumsticks

    Hey everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful day. How many of us have a preference when it comes to chicken? Dark or light meat? Baked or fried? Mine has always been juicy oven baked chicken breast but I decided to try something different the other day. So for dinner over the weekend, I decided to switch things up by baking some delicious drumsticks instead of the routine chicken breast. Boy, these were full of flavor and extremely juicy! I seasoned them with both Asian and Middle Eastern flavors; the result was fantastic. The sumac and onions add that Arabic touch while the coconut aminos and minced garlic adds some…

Lately, I have been craving to have some good shawarma which seems hard to find around here. I know I needed to take business into my own hands and…

    Tuna Salad

    Growing up, I never liked tuna yet alone tuna salad. The smell would just throw me off and I couldn’t even think about putting it in my mouth. A bit dramatic, I know. Fast forward to junior year of high school, I began to like it! We were on a fishing school trip and one of my friend’s brought home made tuna sandwiches for several of us. I didn’t want to be rude and I was extra hungry that day; maybe from all the fish I caught. Did you sense the sarcasm? I caught a tree instead of the fish. But anyways, I tasted that tuna sandwich and I was…
