I am a married mother of two young boys. My husband is a native Marrakechi, and we live between Alexandria, VA and Marrakech Morocco. I just started back in an MA program and so my cooking time will probably be cut down signifigantly! Before meeting him I had rarely cooked Middle Eastern/North African food but now even his family says I have it down!
I have a recipe blog at http://marocmamarecipes.blogspot.com
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Moroccan food is a big niche of mine, but I am also very good with Italian food as I grew up making and more importantly eating it. I am starting to experiment with traditional French and Spanish styles now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade pasta and gnocchi with my grandma. I will always remember this.
My cooking triumphs
Finally having my cooking be indistinguishable from my sister in laws Moroccan style!!
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few, but none that really come off the top of my head.
