Nothing says summer like barbecue! Today I'm sharing a recipe for Sour Cream Biscuits that would work wonderfully as a side to some grilled dishes. When having a barbecue, we always like to have some type of bread to go along with the meal.

We are almost at the end of Ramadan. Just a couple more days till Eid! May Allah accept all of our fasts and duas!
To celebrate Eid, Henna from My Ninja Naan, Sarah from Flour & Spice along with myself are hosting Eid Eats! It's a virtual potluck where we all share dishes we like to make for Eid.

Recently I told you about all the goodies I received from Blossom & Bean and I also shared the delicious S'mores we made using the Blossom & Bean Halal S'mores Kit. Today I am sharing what we made with the Campfire Mini Fruit Halal Marshmallows. I found the Campfire Marshmallows to be the best Halal marshmallows that I have tried. The texture and taste are both very good and they worked wonderfully in these Fruity Double Marshmallow Rice Krispies Treats.

Mina Halal has recently launched their deli line which features Chicken Wieners, Chicken Bologna and Breakfast Grill Chicken Strips. The breakfast grill chicken strips were the one item we all were excited to try. In my mind I was thinking chicken bacon!

I recently posted about all the goodies I received from Blossom & Bean. One of those items was the Blossom & Bean Halal S'mores Kit. I was looking forward to trying this since I've never had S'mores before. The box comes with a bag of Campfire Halal Marshmallows, Graham Crackers and Lindt Chocolates. There were no instructions in the kit so I did some searching and initially I had baked them on 400°F for 2-3 minutes. This method was not very good. The cracker ended up burning. After some discussions with my sister-in-law who loves all things candy, I put them under the broiler until the marshmallow browned. These were much better. I used 2 pieces of chocolate but there is room to put more!

If you've been following me on Facebook or Instagram, you would know that we've been eating a lot of candy courtesy of Blossom & Bean. I was recently chosen to be one of Blossom & Bean's Brand Ambassadors! Blossom & Bean is Canada's first Halal candy shop and was started during Ramadan of 2013 by Lindsay Contractor. Blossom & Bean was initially started with their handmade gourmet marshmallows and expanded onto gummies.
