What have i been doing

well thats the question ... what have i been doing or up to ..... well over the last month and a half my life has changed ... i have become more grounded and know where i ant to go with it .... even my dh has found a new lease of life that has affected all of us ..... sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day of our lives that we forget whats the most important and that is allah  and the reason we are here .... so this past month we have step it up and making sure that all in our house prays on time ... makes dikhr all the time ... we have even reduced the amount of tv watched ... masha`allah since we have been doing this  things are looking different  ... we feel lighter in our ways

quran is played more and i have even gone back to reading and studying too ... which is great ... i`m loving this new lease on life and alhamdul`ilah allah has given us this chance too

as you will have seen i havent posted much for a while and this begin the reason ... i havent  tried anything new but what i have done is a little more crocheting to keep me going and to keep my little one warm this winter .... they are just simple cardis and a blanket but i love how they turned out .... the original pattern  i have posted before and also a video of the tutorial  i found it on   just look through the pages and you will find it .... the original  pattern is for a 0 to 3 month old so i had to do some thinking and see where i could make it bigger to fit my 2 year old ... if your interested i will give you the places just let me know


  1. Assalamo alaikum,

    MashaAllah that's great about your changes, may Allah keep us all steadfast, ameen.

    I love the cardi's mashaAllah, and the hats are lovely, do you have an online tutorial for those?

  2. for the cardis yes their is an online tutorial here as for the hat i got them from ravel but the cardis in the tutorial is for a 0/3 month old and their such a simple pattern that i dont use the totorials since i made my frist cardi from their and thats over a year ago

    also ameen to you dua sis

  3. Masha'Allah, isn't it wonderful how even the smallest changes that bring us closer to Allah have such a profound effect. May you and your family continue to grow in faith and feel the benefits of it in your everyday lives. Ameen.

    The crochet is also fab, masha'Allah!

Guest post From Halal Home Cooking ....Pancakes with a twist

As-Salaamu Alaykum I'm Umm Hamza from  Halal Home Cooking  today I'm sharing a recipe for a breakfast staple with a twist. Pancakes are my children's favourite breakfast food. They will gladly eat cereal with milk, creamy porridge and jam/jelly doughnuts but unlike those aforementioned staples that only get half to three quarters eaten because A. they turn soggy B. get's cold and sticky or c. no jam left, pancakes will  always  be eaten, no excuses. Once you've honed your basic pancake recipe you are free to experiment with flavour combinations and that's exactly how these chai spiced chocolate and tahini pancakes came about ma sha Allah Source : I found this chai spiced latte powder whilst searching 'halal' during my on-line grocery shopping. I'm always hoping when hitting that search button new products will pop up and this time it d

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup

Pizza Roll

Asalamu Alikum For months my oven hasn't worked and all of a sudden it was working again so the first thing i made was pizza roll ... while doing this i was teaching my daughter my 13 year old how to do this as my 15 year old already knows how to this is basically the samr as the homemade pizza i make only the sauce is a little different ... all i do is use tomato puree and add spices of my choice and then i thin it out to make it easier to spread it is roll out like normal pizza here is my recipe for that you can add any topping and then just take the side and roll the dough till it's like a log ... then cut into rounds and place on tray ... i will add cheese on top as well as the cheese that is inside and then bake for about 15 to 20 mins
