Living in a Syrian-American (part Italian-American) family and eating it all up!
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods, from scratch, with real butter and good quality chocolate chips. NO MIXES.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Syrian-izing Thanksgiving and American-izing Ramadhan and Eid. :)
My cooking triumphs
Fasoliyyeh bi z-zayt is everyone's favorite at potlucks. Everyone also raves over my date bread and pretty much anything else I bake.
My cooking tragedies
Burning the strawberry preserves was the most tragic thing that has ever happened in my kitchen. :(
