My son and I
About this Cook
Cooking is something I've always loved to do. I like trying new recipes and developing my own. I love to share what I know about cooking. I cook just about everything, from American to Middle Eastern to Asian. I also love baking. My inspiration comes from my background. I am Palestinian American. My hubby is Bulgarian and Turkish. I am around all kinds of different flavors. I love to mix them all up to create different crazy stuff!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook ethnic dishes. These include Arabian, Indian, Turkish, Mexican, Chinese and many more. I also love American food. I like baking as well. My favorite desserts to bake are American. Cookies, cakes, and brownies are my specialties.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me basic Palestinian cooking. I incorporate her teachings to my everyday cooking, and develop new methods.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone loves my hummus and baba ghanoush.
My cooking tragedies
We've all burned something, added too many spices, or forgot the salt. I have many cooking tragedies as do most people. My favorite one was when I tried to make protein bars. They were expensive to make, and tasted horrible! Blah!

Aw-some Coleslaw
Simple, easy and delicious! I put everything in my food processor because I hate chopping. I like it chopped finely because I don't have to chew as much:) I used a little less sugar but it was still nice and sweet. Far superior to KFC coleslaw.

Carrot Cake III
This has become a family favorite! I only use 2 cups of sugar in the cream cheese frosting and it's perfect for me. My 4 year old son asks me to make this everyday!

Asian Orange Chicken
This orange chicken was delicious and had lots of flavor. Next time I will add less sugar. Too sweet for me, but my husband thought it was perfect.
