Ramadan 2017
Ramadan 2017

The most difficult part of being away from Family is when you have to start a new tradition of your own….

A New place…

A New life….

A New beginning…… 

This Ramadan is another “NEW” and will be very different for me…..

When Disney gets you!

When Disney gets you!
When Disney gets you!

Disney seems to really understand me….

I believe there’s a kid in everyone and sometime in our life we seem to loose that inner child.
Disney is Magical

I really wish that my girls always keep the kid in them as I believe in everything magical and I still find the wonder in all things Disney.

My father’s (May he rest in Peace) favorite ride at Disneyland was It’s a Small World. I still tear up every time I hear that song.

Even though we still haven’t done the Disney family trip yet I do believe that every Disney movie reminds me of my inner child.

Now with that said I feel like there’s so much more to every song from every Disney movie I’ve watched.

I have emotionally gotten attached to singing “Let it go” from the movie Frozen for every situation in life that was out of my hands and can’t change. I’m sure every one can relate to that on many levels.

Well I’ve evolved from having “Let it go” as my soundtrack to “You’re Welcome” from the movie Moana! 

Disney can always find a song from Disney that truly makes me feel better or express my emotion. It’s a fact Disney gets me!!

Take a break…..

Take a break…..

Mind Break

I’m not the best person to take a a step back and Relax… not in my On-the-go personality…..

Everyone knows how I always have so much on my plate at one time. I’m Miss Busy Bee AND I deeply suffer from

FOMO…..yes Fear Of Missing Out

Even though I’ve substantially decreased so many aspects of my “previous life” with the Move to Canada.

Less friends, no family, no work/job, no business, NOTHING….absolutley NOTHING!

Well guess what? I somehow took a step back and decided to embrace it.

My forced upon me life Break…..

Maybe now I’ll take up Yoga and Meditation Loool!

Coconut Balls Recipe…..

Coconut Balls Recipe…..
Coconut Balls Recipe…..

I had posted on my Instagram a late night picture of what I was going to make to tame my sweet craving….

Now i’m big on desserts and baking but at such a late hour i didn’t have the luxury of time and wanted to just have something sweet…. That takes less than 20 minutes to be devoured!

First Measure all the required ingredients…. You’ll need 

recipe-coconut balls ingredients

Next step is basically Mix ALL ingredients in a food processor until it begins to fold in on itself creating a dough like look.

Using a tablespoon or a mini ice cream scooper ( My personal choice!) Drop the balls of the dough onto parchment paper. ( you could just eat scoops out just like that if you want too!! )

Optional Garnish: To fancy up the balls you can sprinkle the balls with more lime zest.

Freeze the balls for at least 5 minutes if you’re in a hurry….ideally 10-15 minutes will make them completely firm

At this point you have two choices…. Eat the whole batch (totally doable!!! I know) or be a little more sensible and have a few and store the remaining in a ziploc or air tight container in the freezer…..

** You can totally substitute Lemon for the lime!
