Sunday nights home for break are my absolute favorite.
Sundays are lazy, yet productive. You spend time getting ready for the week but also take moments just for yourself.
In my family, we have a recipe adventure every Sunday. Usually, my dad asks my brothers and me what we would like to eat. Then he spends the evening cooking up a storm. I am so lucky to have such incredible home cooked meals in my life — and even better company to share them with.
My dad cooks the meal, my mom helps clean up the kitchen and set up the table, my older brother makes the chai, my little brother helps my mother — and so, I take over dessert.
This past Sunday, I decided I wanted to experiment with my new waffle maker. I made brownies with a twist — I put them in a waffle maker, and we made waffle brownie sundaes. Decadent. Divine. Delicious. My parents aren’t crazy for overly sweet American treats like me, so I also baked a marbled pound cake loaf.
After we eat, we share dessert, and then move to the living room couch, where we spend time talking, laughing, living, and loving. Alhamdullilah for Sunday night dinners.

- This is my favorite waffle maker.
- I used a fudge brownie mix.
- I set my waffle maker to high — and then allowed the brownies to cook. When removing the waffle, I opened the waffle maker and allowed it to cool open-faced for about 3 minutes; this allowed the waffle to become more solid.
