One of the things I immensely miss about Pakistan is a traditional Pakistani desi wedding. I am sure most of expatriate women can relate to this feeling. Dholki, mayon-mehndi, scrumptious desi cuisine, all fun shaadi related customs and above all getting ready for the events in traditional eastern wear are some vital elements.

One of the productive things to do during this “stay home – stay safe” period is definitely catching up with reading routine.

Blueberry & lemon is a win-win combination when it comes to desserts. A match that compliments and goes perfect with each other. Lemon citrus flavor refines the somewhat bland blueberry taste. This is my first time trying a 𝐛𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐤𝐞 and I must say it is dense, smooth & creamy.
