About me

A skeptic, a dreamer, a firm believer in the power of sarcasm and an absolute lover of good food. Hi! I’m Yusra and on my 24th birthday I said to myself  “enough is enough…let’s start a Blog!”

And so, here we are! This blog is mostly about recipes that I have tried and would love to share with more people out there. You see, as with most people who like to cook, I like to feed people good food too. But since I cannot be with most of you lovely people out there, my recipes can. Originally a Pakistani, I was born and brought up in Abu Dhabi. Blessed with great friends who enjoy good food and a family whose idea of “fun” revolves around the thought of food. Not too long ago I got my Diploma in Culinary Arts from Dubai which was a wonderful experience that taught me a lot and blessed me with a couple of really good friendships. I would like to use this blog as a platform to “impart some of that wisdom and knowledge” =D

Anyway, enough about me. Hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I do writing it.
