Izzah Khan

Welcome! I’m so glad you stumbled upon my blog. I’m Izza, the rookie who spends a lot of time hovering in the kitchen, playing with spices, herbs, and goofing off in front of the camera. It’s my little haven where I can wreak havoc because I know that what is going to come out of it is worth it. I love food–making it, photographing it, devouring it and then soon after, burning it off in the gym. Oh the guilt!

I’m a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur. I love spending time in coffee shops. The sweet, earthy aroma of coffee instantly uplifts my mood so it’s important for me to have my latte extra, extra hot and in a mug that is as big as my face. See, I hate to gulp down my coffee. I like to sip it slowly between the run-on sentences that tumble out of my mouth.

Extra, extra hot?” the barista always repeats.


With this blog, I hope to do two things: write more and write often, and talk about food, of course! I hope you stick around.

    1. Hi Younis, Thank you so much for trying out my recipes. I’ll be putting up a lot more Pakistani recipe videos on my YouTube channel. Is there something specific you want me to make? Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel! I would love the same support on my videos:)

  7. Hi Izza,

    1. Hi Zee, I am based in Los Angeles. I am open to collaborating on relevant projects. Please email me at rookiewithacookie@gmail.com 🙂

  8. Hi Izza:

    I googled Seekh Kabab and your recipe popped up. I made it last week and it was excellent, I like my kababs spicy so I put a little more green chilli and chili powder. The only problem is that in spite of turning the exhaust fan full blast and opening all windows and door of my kitchen the house was filled with the delicious aroma and smoke. Wonder what the neighbors had to say. Tomorrow I’m going to follow the same recipe but make cutlets and shallow fry them in a pan.

    1. Shallow frying them would be delicious and I do that when I don’t want to fuss around with skewers or the oven. Would make a delicious sandwich too with some pickled onions and raita. Thanks for trying this out.
