Funny enough, I didn’t know how to cook when I got married. I worked in marketing in the retail food industry back then, but that didn’t mean I could cook. Why should I cook when I was spoiled by a mother who was a great cook?

In those early days of my marriage, I would stop by my mom’s house on the way home from work and pick up food for dinner. I couldn’t imagine how I was ever going to get dinner on the table after a long day at work! 

In reality, I think I didn’t want to let go of my mom’s food. She was a wizard in the kitchen, making all the Lebanese classics we grew up eating, but also making them fresh and modern and so good.

I wanted to cook like that. So I started asking her to teach me how to cook one recipe at at time – over the phone. It was 2007, and there was no FaceTime, but we made it work. Feel Good Foodie is rooted in that experience.

Now, I get to be the wizard in the kitchen, helping you get dinner on the table every night. I know how hard it is! I also know that you can do it.

You simply need the tips and tricks and recipes my mother taught me – along with all the things I’ve learned in the intervening years.

Now I have two kids, a husband, and this growing business, but you’re still my priority. Like you, I’m cooking healthier now than I did even a few years back.

I feel like we’re all beginning to discover that wholesome, organic, natural, and clean are the secrets to feeding our families well.

Inspired by the Lebanese foods and dishes of my childhood, everything I make has a little bit of Mediterranean in it, a lot of fresh, and a good dose of flavor. It’s not ordinary, but it is easy. Mostly, it’s good – so good!
