1. Salam alaikum amanda, I’m going to try the Chocolate Eclairs today but is their a substitute for the vanilla bean paste?

    Ramadan Kareem!

  2. Hello Amanda! I am Abdul Azis, a Muslim-Filipino! =)
    My father is Muslim and my mother converted. What skills does it take to be on MasterChef? Ever since I was a child I dreamt of being in the same place as you were in MasterChef. What are the basic knowledge I will need in order for me to achieve my dream In Sha Allah?

    Happy Ramadhan! =)

    1. Hi Abdul Azis! Asalamu alikum! To be a contestant on Masterchef I would say you need a passion for food, a strong personal twist on food and courage to audition! You can do it! Best of luck πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks for answering! I am expected to go to college in the US, I am Grade 8 now, so 3 more years to go! I hope I can audition and hopefully I get to be one lucky person. Thanks for the advice, and I love your Popsicles! (Even though I haven’t included Blueberries since it’s not available in the Philippines)

        Salaam! =)

  3. Hello Amanda! I just saw you on the Today Show and felt compelled to reach out to you. What you’re doing is wonderful. As a Methodist from Northwest Pennsylvania I am fascinated by your outreach program. I would love to include you as my Muslim neighbor, but with a twist-haha! I am offering my services in your kitchen for your next meal. I’m not a chef, but know my way around the kitchen! I’m a sixth grade teacher and a photographer, but love to cook. Could I help you? (Please check me out so you know I’m sincere and safe!) As I said, I feel compelled to reach out. Best wishes and looking forward to hearing from you. Barb Hemdal

    1. Hello Barbara! Thank you so much for reaching out and for your support. I really appreciate it. I would love to come to Pennsylvania and have a dinner there! πŸ˜€ best to you and yours πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Amanda,

    As one of the biggest fans of masterchef, i was rewatching season 6, and just came across the cake episode. As a huge fan of yours it was hard to see you go, i wanted to see if there was an update on how you were doing currently in the culinary world! It’s awesome to see you are still cooking. I one day hope to be on Masterchef.
