I’m back with lots more to come

Hello my fellow travellers,

I’m finally back from my two-month long vacation in Sri Lanka. I soaked up the sun and ate different types of cuisine but now I’m ready to settle back in at home and start posting some healthy desserts, entrees, and more! So keep a look out on Travel Sized Bites for new posts. I will be posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Thanks for sticking around!



In Sri Lanka: A few days break before I am back to blogging

Hello my fellow travellers,

Guess where I am? A clue – This country is known as paradise Island.

And here’s a picture of the country’s flag: Image

If you haven’t been able to guess yet, I’m in Sri Lanka! I’m here on a short vacation but will continue blogging. I’m going to put up a range of recipes from the usual to Sri Lankan local cooking that I will learn from our local chef.

I’m also, obviously, going to try out different restaurants and will also put up pictures from our daily adventures. Keep checking back for updates. I will post every Monday and Thursdays, insha’Allah.

Thanks for following along.

Dine Halal, Work, and Cheesecake things

Hello my fellow travellers,

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

I have some exciting news…I am now working with a wonderful group called Dine Halal! They’re an awesome resource for finding out where your favorite halal restaurant sources their meat from. They also post reviews and recipes on their website and have a bi-monthly magazine that circulates in the GTA.

I wrote a review for them recently on one of my favorite restaurants: Zem One

Link for Dine Halal’s website:  http://dine-halal.com

Dine Halal is also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dinehalal.ca

Do check them out and share their website with your family and friends. I honestly didn’t know about a lot of restaurants until I scoured the Dine Halal facebook page and all the scrumptious pictures they posted.

Onto other matters of business.

I won’t be posting for a week or so because I’m finishing up university, insha’Allah, and I’m barely in the kitchen these days unless out of necessity (have to cook to survive :P) but I am not baking for fun (which I miss so much!)

Which brings me onto my last point. Cheesecake. I am a cheesecake LOVER. Die hard fan. I prefer it above most desserts. Its so light and fluffy and ever since I made Oreo Cheesecake (recipe up some day, iA) I don’t like buying the boxed stuff anymore. However, I make exceptions for La Rocca Cake. So anyways, I am planning to make a strawberry cheesecake to mark the end of exams and assignments and will put it up here first! I also made some chocolate cupcakes a few weeks back but need to find the pictures to upload the recipe but will soon.

Thanks everyone for your support so far!



P.S: Check out my Facebook page www.facebook.com/travelsizedbites which I update frequently (these days I’m on an anti-GMO campaign)

Speedy update

Hello my fellow travellers,

Sorry for the lack of recipe/review postings! I’m currently swamped with university work and last term assignments but I will update the blog in the upcoming week with a recipe and review.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

Hello world!

Welcome to my recipe/food review blog. I decided to start a blog for my recipes because I’ve had many requests from friends and family to share my dessert recipes. I figured instead of posting it as photo captions on Facebook, I might as well put it on the interwebs for other people to see as well.

I hope you enjoy.

Affiyet Olsun or Bon Appetite 🙂
