I'm baaaaaack!!! Sorry friends for being MIA. My heart just wasn't into blogging this past year and I wanted to focus on other things in life. One of those things was getting back to reading. Before I had kids, I was always reading a book and I've really missed it. I've read some great ones like The Pearl That Broke It's Shell and some not so great ones. Right now I'm reading Charlotte's Web. My son is in Grade 1 and his teacher is currently reading it to the class. I've never read it so I thought it would be a good time and then my son and I can have our own book club 😉

Ramadan Mubarak! Sorry for being MIA but this month has been super busy and blogging has taken a back seat. Today I'm back and blogging over at my good friend Henna's blog, My Ninja Naan. I'm sharing this super easy One Pan Mexican Quinoa recipe. I think it's a perfect balance to all the heavy iftars we have in our South Asian culture. Also being one pan makes things even more easy.

Flour and Spice, Henna from My Ninja Naan, along with myself will be hosting Eid Eats 2016. This is our third year hosting Eid Eats! In case you missed it last year, it's a link party where we all make a dish that we would serve on Eid. You can find all the details at the end of this post!

With growing boys comes never ending appetites. Sometimes it can be a challenge finding a variety of items they enjoy that are filling and quick to put together when they feel the sudden hunger pains. I was happy to discover Mortimer's Pies-On-The-Go. We've been having them for the past week and they have really been a life saver. They were a quick lunch after a soccer class, an after school snack and lunch when I was just too tired to put something together. The pies can be ready in one minute from a deep freeze. They come in a microwavable box making things even more easy! I recommend planning a bit ahead and baking them in the oven. It takes about 30 minutes but it is well worth the wait. The pastry gets nice and flaky and there is much more even heating. Although there have been times where the day was so busy that I opted to microwave them to fill hungry tummies ASAP and they were gobbled up in no time!
