Eid Mubarak and a Giveaway!

I want to wish you all a Eid Mubarak! After a month of fasting, it is time to celebrate! May Allah (swt) accept our fasts and prayers! I hope you all have a blessed holiday with your family and friends!


I was contacted by the wonderful owners of Salaam Designs to use their Holiday cookie cutters! I was so excited! As an avid baker, I was on the look out for some Eid cookie cutters. I received their Holiday Cookie Cutter Set and decided to make a lemon flavored cut out cookie (recipe here:  Lemon Roll Out Cookies)

I also stacked three baked cookies (cutting out a circle in the middle piece prior to baking) and added sprinkles to the center! When you bite in its a fun surprise 🙂

Eid Suprise CookieThe set includes four cookie cutters: a mosque, crescent moon, star, and lantern! They are tin and washed well in the dish washer!

Fall Giveaway- Closed

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who have enetered 🙂 Please visit my Instagram page to see who the lucky winner is 🙂


Fall… The season of change, of movement, of color. There is an indescribable crispness in the air, a scent that lingers in your sweatshirt long after an midday stroll and a warmth that fills the heart when a  warm apple pie is pulled out of the oven. There is something magical about the leaves changing colors and falling to the earth.

Who would expect that in its state of preparing for the harsh winter, that the earth would be so beautiful.
