What’s for Dinner? The Book Edition

Getting a copy of my published recipe cook “What’s for Dinner? was an amazing feeling.

Ayaz and Faraz had been telling me for several years to publish it, and I actually had most of the work done and saved from a few years ago. So when I decided to go for it, the process was relatively quick and easy for me.

If you follow me on pretty much any social media, you will see that first and foremost I always describe myself as Arham’s Mama. It is who I am and it is what makes me most proud and happiest. This book is no different. It’s for him. I want Arham to know I’ll always be his number one fan in anything he wants to do [as long as it’s in good faith].

Have you picked up your copy of ‘What’s for Dinner?. I’d love to hear feedback.

What’s for Dinner: Flavorful Punch

A couple of weeks ago, I meant to make my strawberry and mango combination drink, but I accidentally mixed the pina colada and mango mixers without giving it a second thought. I didn’t even realize it until I mixed all the ingredients together and thought to myself that the color looked… a little off.

To fix it, I added in the strawberry mixer too and this combination turned out great as well.

Besides the three drink mixers, I used sprite and ice as usual.

What’s for Dinner: Strawberry-Mango Fizz

A family favorite fizzy beverage is a strawberry and pina colada combination that we have done often. For our family party at the end of August, however, I wanted to make something different.
This time, I did a mango and strawberry combination. To sprite, add a splash each of mango and strawberry margarita mixers. Add ice. Mix well.When I made the party size version [for the one at the end of August] in the dispenser, before mixing all the ingredients together, the combination of the strawberry and mango mixers looked like a sunset… so I decided to call it the “Sunset Fizz”.

What’s for Dinner: Strawberry and Pina Colada Punch

Today’s date? 11.12.13! Yes, things like that amuse me! But that’s besides the point…I have SO many recipes to post, I don’t even know what to type up first. Not to mention that this month is very hectic.

This one is definitely another one of my “I can’t believe I haven’t already posted this on the blog already recipes”. It’s something I’ve been making for several years and everyone always loves it.


Anyhow, I find that fun [non-alcoholic] beverages are one of the hardest things to come up with sometimes for parties. A family favorite fizzy beverage is this strawberry and pina colada combination that we do [very] often in our family. Too often.What I do is: to sprite, add a splash each of pina colada and strawberry margarita mixers. Add ice. Mix well.Quick, easy, refreshing and delicious… and a crowd pleaser for sure!

What’s for Dinner: Mango Smoothies

Fresh mangoes.
Yogurt.
A little sugar (if needed).
Blend it all together at once.
Could it be any easier?
Someone asked me the quantities of each, and knowing me: I just throw in things until it looks/tastes right [except when baking… you can’t do that in {most} baking… trust me!].
I’d guess that it was around 3 cups of yogurt, 2 and a half mangoes (I kept eating some… so definitely was not three whole mangoes), and about 3-4 tablespoons of sugar? Personally, I wouldn’t have added any sugar but the rest of my family wanted it sweeter (and it will also depend on how ripe your mangoes are).
