I am married to a great cook and always have a skilled pair of hands in the kitchen. I am adventurous and work hard not to get into ruts with my food...but tried and true recipes are a wife's best friend! I am a working woman and sometimes it's a challenge to make home-cooked food consistently. I rely heavily on pre-cut veggies and little shortcuts that save time and help me make a tasty dish. I make breads from scratch because I don't want to stray too far from the old ways..tradition is important to me.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, ethnic foods, breads, pot pies,and slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making food that I grew up with. My family is from Syria and the food while growing up is a fond memory. I hope to create the same homey comfort for my own children. Never forget where you came from!
My cooking triumphs
A dark chocolate/white chocolate cheesecake with berries and almonds for an aunt, amazing hummus that I bring to holiday parties, Mulligatawny Soup!
My cooking tragedies
I made a pumpkin-chicken chowder once, and tossed it! It was so gross! It tasted like baby food.
