I'm so glad you're here!

I'm Maureen Abood, and I’m so happy you are here to feast on delicious Lebanese recipes and enjoy tips on how to make them with success and ease.

You are part of a very special community of people who, like me, want to cook and eat our favorite Lebanese recipes--trying new ideas and keep Lebanese culinary traditions alive.

I grew up learning these recipes at home among many wonderful Lebanese cooks. You may have too! I loved to cook and teach so much that I left my job and went to culinary school, and then landed back in my family fold to continue to ask questions, hear stories, and learn.
