Now this post is dedicated to my new YouTube channel, The Aziz Kitchen. I have always been a great fan of cooking and baking so this idea has been lingering in the back of my mind for a long time. I’m not actually sure what kind of epiphany pushed me over the edge to finally do it, but I have summoned up the courage to finally do it. I’m hoping that it will be something fun and will keep me occupied until university starts again.
It has been a while since I have published my last post, but I thought that it is time I make this post. It has been on my to do list for a long time now. Now that the lockdown has been lifted, I have been thinking a lot about the future and what my plans are. Lockdown has been a big change for a lot of people and to be honest with you I am (kind of, but not really) glad that it happened.
It was my little brother’s birthday last week. He turned 15. His first quarantine birthday. I wasn’t really sure what to make for his birthday because there were just so many options. I knew I wanted to make a chocolate cake though because the last cake I had made for Eid had been a vanilla cake, so I wanted to mix things up. In the end I stuck with four starters which included chicken keema pasties, aloo pakoras, cheese and onion pasties and chicken pakoras.
As this is my first blogpost, I thought I would start by introducing myself and telling everyone who is reading this a little bit about who I am and why I decided to blog. So, obviously what’s the first thing that people want to know about you when they meet you? Your name, right? Well that is what I tend to ask when I first meet someone anyway. So, my name is Sadia Halimah Aziz, a 20-and-some year-old British Pakistani Muslim behind this blog.
