    Salam, Hi icon_biggrin.gif

    I didn't realise you had a introduction "sticky", posted new post saying hi already, oops!

    Ok I'm in Uk, London and married to an Algerian, sure I've used the site before for recipes, however was compelled to join after stumbling on Um Safia's recipes icon_biggrin.gif thank you Um Safia!

    Been experimenting more with algerian recipes over ramadan, no in-laws close by to steal recipes from and last year when met the mother in law, she was cooking 20 things at the same time and giving me the instructions for EVERYTHING in one go, so through my notebook away for the rest of the visit!

    Hey there,
    I've been on Recipezaar for a couple of months, and am trying and reading lots of recipes.
    I'm a kiwi, and my husband is Lebanese/Armenian. We got married October 2007. We live in Riyadh, KSA. I've been working as a nurse in KSA over 6 years, and my husband in advertising for the last 8 years.
    Recipezaar is great, because I haven't been that confident or adventurous in the kitchen, there are lots of recipes here with easy-to-follow instructions and others' suggestions.
    My favourite foods are: fattoush with dipsa roman (pomgranate molasses), tabbouleh, lahmajin (Armenian-style), lentil soup, good hearty/healthy vege soups.
    Salamtik!


    Welcome Zaatarbella!

    Your fave foods sound delicious yummy.gif So you have any time to post some of your recipes? icon_wink.gif

    Happy cooking,

    Rezika.

    Hi from Israel,

    I love eating and preparing all kinds of middle east food -- the most fun and healthy to make and to eat.

    LOVE this site; it's a wealth of recipes, and very helpful reviews/tips/nutritional info.

    All the best to all people of all types in this region!

    Hi there Hank,

    Yes, Middle Eastern food is certainly one of the best around, it's so diverse that you'll never get bored cooking it icon_lol.gif

    Asalaamu Alaikum,

    My name is Nichole, I converted to Islam about 2.5 years ago and met my husband soon after. Since he's from Jordan I have spent the last couple of years learning the traditional Sham dishes like Moulekhia, Atayf, Mashi, Bamia, etc & his beloved Mansaf of course.

    I stumbled upon this forum while I was raiding Um Safia's (sp)recipes.
    icon_wink.gif

    Anyways, I hope you all had a wonderful Eid Insha'Allah.

    -------------------

    Also, welcome (although I am new myself lol) to Hank.

    Nichole


    Salam & welcome Nichole!

    Glad you're having fun looking through my recipes ~ hope you've got plenty of free time as I'm planning on adding a LOAD more soon icon_wink.gif

    Please do post your wonderful Jordanian recipes as we're very short on them here at 'Zaar. icon_cool.gif

    Ma salama,

    Happy New Year Everyone wave.gif

    I am sorry I have neglected this wonderful forum - will do better this year I promise.

    While I am here can anyone give me any ideas to make the most of Sumak? I have tried to add it to carrot salad, rice etc but it seems to get a wee bit lost.

    Hello Everyone,

    I've used RecipeZaar for a while to find recipes, but never took time to join in discussions. Live in TX, love Tex-Mex, healthy eating, vegetarian dishes, and cooking w/o wheat, preserved foods, sugar and bad fats. Was at Farmer's Market in Austin last weekend and found a Taboulleh pizza with a "Fila"?? crust that was delicious. Lady who made it said it was made of chickpea flour and was Armenian. My geography studies were many "moons" ago - but pretty sure it is in the Mid-East so perhaps Iam in the right place to find a recipe for that crust. I love Mid-East recipes because there are so many vegetarian recipes available to choose from. Look forward to learning from all of you.

    Welcome to the NA*ME Forum, Fredomm!

    I will have a look for the recipe for you. If I can't find one in my books or on line, I know for a fact that there are a few Armenians here on Zaar that could probably help icon_wink.gif

    I'll see what I can do...

    Hi Lindsey wave.gif

    maybe you could add a little extra just to get a bit more taste? I made Farrouj meshwi with sumac the other week & I upped the sumac just a touch & it was great. My 'summag' salad is also quite 'sumac-y' lol.

    I'll have another think for you!

    Salam Alaikoum,
    My name is Meriem and I am from Mississippi. I found this site by searching for recipes and everytime I found success when I came to Zaar. I have tried several recipes from here that turned out wonderful, so I thought I would join. icon_biggrin.gif I reverted to Islam almost 4 yrs ago, Alhamdullah and I am married to a wonderful man who is Algerian. Hachemi is the sweetest, most loving man I ever met and I try really hard to cook his favorite Algerian dishes. It is funny that he has become a big steak and pototo kind of guy since he has been in the US. icon_lol.gif He is amazed when he comes home and I have a new Algerian dish prepared for him. He will tell his mom in Algeria what I have cooked and she will tell him that she is proud of me.
    Thank you for this wonderful site and I look forward to trying many recipes and Inshaallah, I will post a few myself.

    Hi! My name is Leah. I stumbled on this forum about a month ago and have been just watching, that is until now. A couple years ago I started cooking Middle Eastern food, just the basics like humous, koshari, and pita bread. I really love it and want to try out more of it, it looks so delicious. I also have been learning colloquial Arabic and am thoroughly enjoying it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Hey Leah wave.gif

    Welcome.....the forum is slow at the moment but I'm glad you can be here! Which Arabic dialects are you currently learning?

    Have fun & happy cooking!
