Delicious Pound Cake

SubhanAllah, Today I was craving something sweet and alhamdulilah decided to make pound cake! Simple. easy and yummy tasted like a oatmeal cookie but hey it was good! I also used wheat flour and not white.

To make this pound cake I used the following ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/4 Tsp Saltshopping list
  • 1 Tsp baking soda
  • 1 Cup butter, softened
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Tsp lemon extract
I replaced the vanilla and lemon with sugar...and because I did not have enough eggs I used flax seed as a substitute.. one teaspoon of flax seed and three teaspoon of water equals one egg, flax is always beneficial in foods and always makes a good egg substitute in my baking.

After mixing all the ingredients together and then adding the eggs (I had two eggs and made the rest egg substitute) I then put it in the oven at 325 and waited for 60 minutes (or less)

After that top it with your favorite topping, we had whipped cream mashaAllah and the family loved it
It was my first time making pound cake and it came out well!!

Just dhikr when you do it and put a lot of love into it.

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....

You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

Remember Who Your Husband Is

On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

So who is he?

Lets remember ..

He is a gift from Allah.

Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

He is the leader of our home.

Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
