@SamsungUSA and @bonappetitmag asked me a little while ago to share my secret to a luscious New York-Style Cheesecake. Of course, I stuck to the recipe I shared in HandMadeBaking because it's the only recipe you'll ever need (and there's no water bath involved). Go ahead and click the link in my profile to grab the recipe and check out the video we did together! sponsored mysamsungkitchen

Avocado, shaved radishes, perfectly fried egg, sprouts, and spices, on sourdough... Literally the most delicious, bougiest avocado toast ever. I see you, Amsterdam! 👀

A flower arrangement I spotted inside a random café, in the middle of the 14 Arrondissement, where the owner is known for his loudly printed shirts (he'd give Liberace a run for his money) and generosity. We came for pre-dinner glasses of wine and ended up with wine and a large homey bowl of roughly cut fried potato discs. A perfect pairing with the glasses of Côtes du Rhône, Rosé, and great conversation we all shared.

The first time I went to Paris was this past autumn with the lovely @izyhossack. It was for a little over a day and we were on a mission to tackle some of the best eats from Paris's bakeries and cafés. After pastry-ing ourselves out, we did pizza and wine for dinner (judge us not!), saw the Eiffel Tower for the quickest photo opportunity ever, and I stocked up on an ungodly amount of skincare and a bit of chocolate. Paris is one of those places that everyone seems to fall in love with, and I couldn't understand why when I finally got there. I understood the shopping, but nothing more. I started a new job recently (hence my lack of posting) and it gave me the opportunity to return to Paris a couple weeks ago. I went with the intention to replenish my skincare collection, to be quite honest, but Paris's charm hit me right in the face when I walked through the streets with my coworkers. The thing with Paris is this: it has charm— you just have to pay attention... Its hole-in-the-wall restaurants, the old buildings, the generously kind servers, and the extremely passionate people are what made me understand why it's so revered. To some, it's the city of love; to me, it's the city that's rough around the edges and filled with charm. And really good pastries. Of course.

One of the most dearest women in my life got married yesterday. When I become her age, I pray to have her level of strength, sass, and flawless skin. Love you, Mom 😘

It's been a long week (and I'm sure that's been the case for everyone). Photographed this delicious mulled wine for @getdrop a few weeks ago. Making it again tomorrow to help everyone chill out while we scramble to wrap last-minute gifts and get the house ready.

Aside from my basic human rights as an American, these are a few of my favorite bougie things... The gorgeous @danielwellington Classic Black watch and silver cuff (use "kamran" for 15% off. Link in profile), Bottega Veneta Parco Palladiano I scent, @manekibook notebook, and the Chanel La Solution 10 de Chanel moisturizer (A bit pricey, but really nice if you want a good treat for yourself... It's fragrance-free and great on my very sensitive skin).

I'm sorry, but I still can't get over the UK's flower game. Also @kchossack_pottery pointed it out to me, and I didn't really notice until she did, but why are flowers so much more inexpensive compared to the US?

This bowl of Puy lentils, burrata, basil, and sour dough croutons from @bill.granger's Notting Hill location doesn't look like much, but it's what dreams are made of. Pure and utter joy. Oh, and don't get me started on the courgette (zucchini) fritters served with a delicious Yemeni zhough (a spicy cilantro sauce) and a luscious bulgur and kale salad. The fritters weren't very photogenic, but I promise—everything about it was 🙌. I normally don't go for raw kale in salad, but it made an appearance in fine shreds and a nicely flavored dressing. ''Twas an exceptional meal, if you ask me!

That griddled cornbread was so unbelievably buttery. I'm getting weak in the knees from just talking about it! Also, can we talk about the Great British Bakeoff for a second? I'm so sad that that Mary, Sue, and Mel left. 😭

Comment from Kamran Siddiqi:


"Sir, do you have anything sharp in your bags?" We were stopped by security at the Paris Gare du Nord station because I was carrying a couple knives I bought from our trip to the E. Dehillerin kitchenware shop. The French security guard looked at me attentively as I said, "Oh my God, yes! I bought kitchen knives. They're wrapped in that bag and there's a receipt..." I pointed at the spot in the tote and he removed them carefully. The guard held the receipt and the packaged knives for a moment while he talked to his colleagues in French, and casually pointed at the monitor on the x-ray machine; heads shook. I knew I was going to lose them. It seems like the French security appreciated the honesty and the fact I had a baguette and chocolate bars in my tote, and a huge backpack filled with skincare products (I know, I have an obsession). They figured the most damage I'd do is feed people bread and chocolate and give them a new skincare routine. Anyway, by the grace of the universe, I got to keep the knives with a conversation about safety and a request to place them in a hard-to-reach spot inside my huge backpack. The knives are safe and sound now. 😅

Before running to catch our @eurostar back to London, we had to do at least one touristy thing at the last minute. I knew it'd be sacrilegious if I didn't see it in person.
