Lisa in Chicago
I have lived in the Chicagoland area all of my life, but my family is very diverse. My mother is from Cairo, Egypt and we are Armenian. I was raised by my grandmother who cooked all sorts of dishes that my friends never heard of, but I loved! We cook with rice a lot, and use allspice frequently.
