Announcing the Arrival of ‘Tiny Spoon’

Tiny Spoon

I wanted to share with you that our ‘Tiny Spoon’, our little darling baby, came into the world this August! That is what my ‘non-food related project’ was, and the reason why I have not been able to cook, write or blog as of recent.

I wanted to thank all of you for your readership, encouragement and support. I will be back in The Spice Spoon kitchen, inshallah later this year. And no, I won’t be blogging about baby food 🙂

I hope all of you had a lovely summer.
