Postcard from Up North

On pavements and the bark of trees, I have found whole worlds. . ~ Mark Tobey

(Peak leaves, fallen, front steps. Moments like these, one wonders how we survived without such color til now, and how we’ll possibly get along when she is gone.)

    We don’t have anyone like you in Southern California who is talented and sharing her Lebanese background, I am glad I logged in to your website, your recipes are delicious and easy to make. I am always looking forward to what recipe you are gong to post. Thanks for the pealed chick peas article, yes, now I know the secret to creamy smooth Hummus. Keep up the good work.
