Honored to be the featured Food Blogger in Ahlan Masala! magazine for the 5th week in a row πŸ™‚

I had the honor of being the featured blogger in this week’s Masala! magazine. Do look me up πŸ™‚

Hooray for yet another long weekend! What does an ideal weekend mean to you? This is exactly what Wkend Magazine by Khaleej Times asked me πŸ™‚ Do look up my little write-up. Happy Long Weekend peeps!

If you are following me on my social media handles, you’ve already heard the news: The Tezzy Files has been nominated yet again for the very prestigious category of ‘Best Blog’ by Ahlan Masala!

Much love,


In our household, we are pretty addicted to Master Chef Australia. Hubby and I take great pleasure in putting bets on contestant rankings, and I’ve always been in awe with the judging skills and straight-up informative feed back Chefs Gary, George and Matt seem to be able to give at the drop of a hat.

We are foodies. I blog about food, yet actually being a judge at a cooking contest perturbs me. And then I had the honor of being invited onto the judging panel of the annual Grandma’s Recipe Contest in Arabian Courtyard & Spa this month! Absolutely honored, I decided to give it a go and put on my Master Chef hat πŸ™‚

This is hilarious! A dear friend of mine just pointed out to me that I got featured in none other than The Huffington Post itself! Psyched! Yet I wasn’t expecting my #HuffingtonPostMomentOfFame to look quite like this!
