How niter kibbeh and griddle cakes became my family's comfort foods
A simple meal made for loved ones in the comfort of home
And the one ingredient that makes it truly special
When the scent of this bread fills the kitchen, you'll know it's nearly Easter
A easy lunch, a mighty dinner, an appetizer—your choice!
Keep a pan in your freezer for nearly-instant dinners
An Egyptian dish that's made by instinct, eaten with messy exuberance
A deeply spice lamb stew that's traveled far.
Right from the Mughal Empire.
Navigating mixed race identity in the U.S. by way of red bean paste
Fit for a royal dining table—and a grandmother's kitchen
Plus, an herby pilaf you can make no matter where in the world you are
Plus the secret ingredient that makes it special
Sturdy base, marshmallow mounds, and a hot fudge-esque frosting
And then I committed to making it myself.
A little pot of rice with big, transformational power
A fortifying soup for rainy days, nights at home (like tonight?), and bellies warm
And it's also the national dish of Uzbekistan
In a life devoted to others, this cake was undeniably hers
A simple, nourishing dish for grieving, coping, and purifying
Grandma's sweet legacy
