Homemade Cinnamon Pudding- Goodbye Box Pudding!

SubhanAllah I had a craving for banana pudding today mashaAllah! I think it was because the children were opening the bananas and not fully eating them hmm, well we have been really striving to not do the box -processed foods and do a lot more of.. what we like to call foundational cooking, homemade meals and items 

We just knew somewhere in the world someone has made pudding before and alhamdulilah found an easy simple recipe! Sadly, we ate it all before I could take a picture so the picture here is not of my homemade pudding... you have to use your imagination!!

The recipe called for vanilla pudding but we did not have vanilla so we used cinnamon and sugar in the raw, not white sugar. It was good and the children loved it!

The recipe is:

1/3 cup sugar
3 tbs cornstarch if you do not have cornstarch then 3 tbs of flour replaces 1 tbs of cornstarch!
a little salt
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
cinnamon - optional

Combine the cornstarch salt and sugar on the stove and slowly add in the milk, boil until thick and then place in the fridge.

We added banana's on top subhanAllah what a treat!! Didn't think it would be so easy and the family approved.

We can add this to our list of box items we won't buy anymore alhamdulilah!

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…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

5 Ways To Love Yourself MORE

Yep, there I am, jumping on the trampoline in my sisters yard yesterday. As I told a friend, you can't help but smile on a trampoline. I couldn't jump and be angry, or feel sad at the same time. 
Alhamdulilah I felt like reaching for the sky, free, and alive. I haven't felt that way since my husband passed away last month (December 20th, 2016). Life has not been the same. Yesterday I decided to get some fresh air and I felt good. It was nice to step outside for a little bit.
My last post was written on loving your husband's more, which can also be applied to wives. Our time here isn't long, and in losing my husband, I am extra reminded to encourage wives to love their husbands more. That has always been part of my blog's goal, but God is telling me to remind women more, through my own experience.

But in loving your husbands more, do not forget yourself. You are important. Yes, some women need to be reminded that they are important. You have to take care of you…
