Hello and welcome!
I have been interested in cooking (and eating) since I was a little tot. My passion grew when I realized, I could create things my family and friends would enjoy. To me, there is no better way to tell someone you love them, then to create a delicious meal for them.
At age 5, I was standing on a step stool, waiting for my mom to pass the spatula so that I could mix the banana bread batter. At the age of 12, I was watching Emeril Live instead of MTV (or whatever it is that pre-teens watched in the early 2000’s). For my 16th birthday, I asked for something unexpected (no, not a car). I got the best gift ever; my very first Kitchen Aid stand mixer! My passion for cooking took a bit of a hiatus while in graduate school. But now my kitchen is back in full swing!
If there is one thing I have learned, it is that food truly does bring people together. I mean, we do all have to eat; why not eat something delicious surrounded by the people you love most!
Not everyone has the ability to eat delicious things with their families. Millions do not have enough to eat, each day. I strive to bring awareness to this horrible reality that many face in our own country.
On my site you will find the yummy treats, the savory bites and everything else that is created in my kitchen. I am Muslim, so no bacon here!
I hope to write and publish my own cookbook to share the extra special recipes from my childhood. To me, I can only honor these recipes in a printed, hardcover, bright and beautiful book 🙂
