Red Carrot Jam

Red carrot jam is a very old traditional Egyptian jam. I grew up on it. My Grandma used to make it and my mom used to make it. I would eagerly wait for the time of year where they would be available. Red Carrots are not so easily found these days. Red carrots are sold…

Therapy in Red Carrots

It’s almost the end of the crazy weekend. It’s early Friday morning and I’m tired and exhausted from the crazy week that just passed. I say a quick prayer of gratitude that nothing’s changed. Crazy is good, means life is normal and we are healthy enough to deal with it. So thanks to big man…

A fresh start 21 days later

For 21 days I’ve been meaning to write. It’s been the same story for the last couple of years. The intentions are there but life takes over. The days goes by and seems like there is not enough time for anything extra then the daily do’s. This year will be different. This year I will…

A New Chapter, take 1

Holy Moly Colorful Cake

I’m surrounded by cakes. Literally. I feel if anymore of them pop out of the oven I wont be able to move. And I am starving, and all I can think of is how good a pizza would taste right now, but thankfully I brought carrot sticks and my diet soda for lunch. Then in…

Moving, Weddings, Tylenol Cold and Political Corruption.
