Shabnam Khan  Foodie🍴 Home cook πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ Food blogger -- not really πŸ€” CA(SA) πŸ“š Traveller ✈️

I baked this Persian Love cake for my mum's birthday today. Recipe from The Saffron Tales by Yasmin Khan (@yasminkhanstories). This cake is everything - soft, moist, full of flavours and the perfect cake for my mum who I love so much πŸ’•. It also has my favourite almonds, pistachios (which mum doesn't like sharing 😞), rose water and cardamom. The balance of flavours is phenomenal with each flavour sharing the stage equally. A truly special bake for the most special mum 😊. Happy birthday Mum πŸŽ‚. Thank you for everything that you do for us, everything that you have taught us, for making us the amazing people that we are today And most of all for doing the dishes every time I cook πŸ€—. Love you lots πŸ’• .

If there's anything you try this week, let it be this Chicken sukka - once again, idea taken from my stalking tendencies (@tasteoftaskadwa ) 😊We served this with masala fried potatoes and some chopped up avo and beetroot and hot, soft rotis. The perfect meal for this cold winters day πŸ‘ŒπŸΌThe aroma of all the spices whilst cooking was enough to make me drool πŸ™ˆ. I added some extra tomatoe purΓ©e and a tablespoon of tomatoe paste for some extra gravy. Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend πŸ’•

Aubergine cheesecake - recipe by @ottolenghi
I've discovered my love for @ottolenghi recipes from the Instagram page of one of my favourites @tasteoftaskadwa. This was another recipe I tried post my "stalking" of her feed a few days ago 😊Thank you for sharing this @tasteoftaskadwa. πŸ’• i have posted the link for the recipe in my bio for those who'd like to try. My slight amendments to the recipe - 100g extra feta cheese, some ground green chilli and a sprinkle of sumac before baking. Stay warm and cosy this weekend ❀️ .

Just a little chocolate cake in celebration of #worldchocolateday 🍫. I love the combination of chocolate and raspberries- the tartness of the raspberries with the taste of dreamy, silky ganache πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ. This is my family's tried and tested recipe and we still love this particularly cake even after all the "new" recipes we've tried. No matter what the question, chocolate is always the answer - well, except when it's a 3500 word assignment πŸ™„. One step at a time and it will get done 😊. Let's spread some love ❀️ Have a wonderful Friday and Jummah Mubarak πŸ’•.

This is what you get for supper when you've realised that your assignment is due earlier than you thought πŸ’­. Quick, easy and fuss-free coz tonight there's something a little bit more important on my mind πŸ€“
Chicken schintzels (from @woolworths_sa) cooked in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil. I topped these with some baked beans cooked with extra chilli, topped with some cheese, slices of peppers and some Italian herbs. Popped back in the oven for 5mins to met the cheese and voila - supper was ready πŸ˜‹. Yeah, I know this is a cheat of note. But hey, tummies are satisfied and that's the most important part 😊. Now back to the books πŸ“š .

My brain feels like these eggs right now - scrambled πŸ™ˆ I know it's a little late for a breakfast post but here's one anyways 😊 (and this could make a great light lunch too)
Scrambled eggs (thats eggs twice this week) on a bed of crisp lettuce, topped with fried chicken rashers, slices of avo And tomatoe In a crispy garlic roll from my local Spar. Deliciously satisfying πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ The serving board is from @yuppiechef .
