I loooove to cook, of course. Especially for my husband. I have 2 beautiful children, mashaAllah. And live currently in Saudi Arabia, and hope to die here one day. InshaAllah.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything and anything that tastes great. I grew up with lots of good taste on my tongue, alhamdulillah, due to my moms amazing cooking. I miss it by the way. But i love soups, fruit pastries, and anything that has chocolate in it. No wait, maybe i don't, there is a chili recipe in here that calls for chocolate??? I'm not so sure about that one. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Friday we have a special lunch. Of course a new recipe from this site.
My cooking triumphs
Mom: "I'm not so sure how this dish came out, I hope I didn't mess it up.
Dad: "Oh really? How do you think you messed it up?"
Mom: "Oh well, I think I might have forgotten something."
Dad: Tastes Mommies food. Makes a face. A positive one. Smiles.
Mom: "And, do you like it?"
Dad: "When have you ever made anything that I didn't like, for the past 30 years that i've been married to you?"
This conversation happens between my parents almost everyday. My father absolutely loves my moms cooking. And so do I.
My cooking tragedies
I've gotten burned more than I've messed dishes up.
