About this Cook
I have many hobbies, but I mostly enjoy cooking, baking, and collecting recipies. That would also include a lot of experimenting! I am married and a mother of one (and pregnant with the second). I have to say that the most precious moments for me are when I am making food with my daughter. It makes her feel so special.
My favorite things to cook
Well....ummm.....anything that is sweet! And with chocolate too:)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family comes from the Middle East, but we do not just limited ourselves to Arabic food. We enjoy making foods from around the world. In fact, I still have a lot to learn about my family cooking traditions. Cooking the food is a bit more on the difficult side for me. That is probably because when I try to learn, my mother and aunts use "a little bit of this and a little bit of that." What can I say, that's how these village women work.
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy making all kinds of food. But I have been most successful with cookies and other desserts.
My cooking tragedies
Dont we all go through it!? It takes a lot of under cooked chicken and a ton dry cakes to be a good chef. And still, there is always room for error.

Pumpkin Cake III
Wow!!! What a wonderful cake! I followed the other reviewers' advise. I used 1/ 2 cup of applesauce and 3/4 cup of oil to cut out some of the fat. I used only 1 tsp of cinnamon and added 1 tsp of pumpkin spice for a bit more flavor. Ahh perfection!!!

Chewy Sugar Cookies
These cookies are wonderful and very tasty. Please take my advise however. First, try to use butter instead of margarine. The second is that these cookies need about 1/2 cup extra of flour. That will give you a total of 3 1/4 cups of flour. The first time I made them, they came out flat. I was very surprised that more people didn't comment on this issue, but I promise that my advise will give you the best cookie. :)

Ghirardelli Coconut Almond Torte with Chocolate Chips
Very delicious! It is rich, dense, and moist. The coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips gave great flavor and a variety of texture. The fresh whipped cream and strawberries were outstanding too!
