The point is, I am SUPER LUCKY, super THANKFUL, and SUPER excited to introduce you all to Farah from


Farah is a WONDERFUL bloggy friend. I only met her recently, and she is just amazing. Every single one of her comments, and emails, is written, like she's known you forever. She is so friendly, and you can feel her warm heart all the way from Pakistan. One of my most favorite posts she did, was taking us on a tour of her beautiful country, and I was just in awe at the beauty. If you get a chance, PLEASE check out THIS POST on the BEAUTY OF PAKISTAN.She is also incredibly talented in many other things, and loves home design, and especially floral arrangements. I love her blog, and know you will too. 


Today she is sharing a mouth watering Lasagna recipe. YUMM!!

Creamy Spicy Chicken Lasagna

Today I wanted to share something different 
from craft or home decor.
Here in our culture there is a very popular saying, i.e
If you want to win a man's heart, 
try to get your way through his stomach.

What do you say,are you agreed???
May be or may not be.
But I think tasty and delicious food is the weakness 
of everyone and we all feel happy when people
praised about our cooking.
 This recipes is bit spicy but you can reduce the 
quantity of sauces to your taste.
We started from the White sauce

1 1/2 cup of milk, 3tbs white flour, 1 1/2 tbs butter, 
2tbs grated cheddar cheese,
1/2 tsp of salt, black pepper and dried oregano leaves each.
Melt the butter in the sauce pan over low heat,
stir the flour and fry a bit that gives an aroma.
Now remove from the heat and pour the
milk, may be you have little lumps in it, slowly
stir them and finally when all lumps are finished
bring it back to heat and start cooking.
Add all other ingredients and cook it until
it becomes thick.
Its ready.

I have two cups of chicken cubed,
just fried it for 5 minutes in 1tbs of cooking oil.

 Two cups of macronies, boiled with  half lemon,
drained and stir with half tbsp oil.

Its the mixture of onions and tomatoes
In 1 1/2 tbs oil soft the onion a bit 
add tomatoes, stir for 4 to 5 minutes, 
then add 4tbs of vinegar and 1tbs of brown sugar
with a pinch of salt.
Keep on low flame for next5 minutes.
Set aside.

Grated cheese i.e
cheddar and mozzarella

 They are carrots, capsicum and onion,
cut them in cubes and fry one by one separately and set
aside in a bowl.

Now the sauces and spices, in the plate 
I have crushed ginger and garlic,
Nandos hot peri peri sauce, mustard, 
and chilli and soya sauce.

Now in a deep skillet first I fried 2tbs garlic in tbs oil,
when it become golden brown and gives aroma
I added all vegetables and chicken in it, stir for 1 minute 
and then add all the sauces 
including salt and crushed red pepper. 
Fry it for another 3 to 4 minutes on a moderate flame.

 The size of my dish is 9 x 14 inch and depth is 2.5 inch.
I never boil the lasagna sheets used them as it is 
and it gives you much better result. 
First I layered the white sauce and then
covered it completed with the lasagna 
(I am sorry next picture was blurred so i dont post it here)  

After lasagna sheets I layered the vegetables and 
chicken mix on it.

Then again a layer of white sauce.
The moisture in white layer sauce and of the vegetables are 
enough to tender the lasagna sheets.
 Now its the turn for macronies to be spread, I boiled them 
because its difficult to soften them just like 
lasagna sheets, so better to boil them.
 Now I put a layer of  onion and tomatoes paste, 
if you have any white sauce remaining then 
spread it here on this stage,
I don't have and there is no need too.

And a final layer of vegetable mix.

At last a shower of grated cheeses i.e
cheddar and mozzarella. 
Just for colours add some rings of capsicum,
onion, tomatoes and 
sprinkle paprika and oregano powder.
This last step fill your kitchen with tempting aroma as your 
dish comes out from the oven
Bake it on 190C for next 15 to 20 minutes or 
until  cheeses is melted well.

Oh here it is....
Smells so tempting 


 Oh please take a fork and taste it...
hm mm delicious? 
I am sure it will be ...

Hope you like it and try to get your way to your 
loved ones heart through the stomach... 
I am waiting for your responses and please tell me
if you feel that I don't explain it clearly or 
anything which is not cleared to you, 
I would definitely reply you .
Thanks for stopping by and give me your precious time.
Love you all

Happy Cooking

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
