My name is Louie, and my nick name is Hommus, because I love Hommus,its delicious. I guess having Hommus as a nick name is better than having Baba Ghannous (Arabic Dip) as a nick name. I am of Palestinian orgin and a happily married man for 33 years. I own a Business , (retail Clothing) but I love cooking, its my hobby. I like to cook Arabic Dishes and also recipes from all around the world. I learned my Arabic recipes from my mother . who is a super great cook. In fact my favorite cookbook is the recipes I learned from my Mother. Recently I started to use the slow cooker and I noticed the difference in the flavor.
