Ramadan Kareem!

Ramadan is one of the Holy Months in the Hijri (Lunar) Calendar in Islam. During this time Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, and we mark the end with the celebration of Eid Al-Fitr (Literally means to break fast). During this time we will be releasing a few recipes that are healthy and delicious, which are perfect to have for Iftar (breaking the fast). Traditionally, one should break their fast on a Date, and then continue to have their prepared meal. We will post everything from Mezza to Dessert, all traditionally eaten during this month. Growing up our Ramadan experience consisted of decorating the house with beautiful decorations, and as we grew older it meant spending a little more time preparing meals each day. You’d think it would be difficult to fast and prepare a feast, but it isn’t as bad as it sounds. Each day our menu included a soup, salad and side of samosas, baked pies or something special that our mom would cook up. This year we can’t wait to share those recipes with our readers!

Any requests can be left in the comments, or on Facebook 🙂

Ramadan Kareem everyone!
