So I moved to Chicago around 6-7 month ago and I got a sweet job teaching immigrants and refugee’s (Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, etc) U.S. History and Civics at Arab American Family Services*. I swear my students are the best cooks and they are the most loving bunch… if you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been blogging much it’s because of this! Its something new every week! I am stuffed and probably have gained over 10 pounds! Love it and love my students!!! p.s. I am in love with Maqluba, Mansaf, and Baklava (so many new dishes I am learning about Alhamdullilah) now to learn these recipes and share them with y’all.
*Arab American Family Services is a non-political, non-religious organization that focuses on building respect and understanding between Arab-Americans and the mainstream-American culture.
