Greetings! I am a Muslim wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend who loves to eat food. I was born and raised in New York City to parents who immigrated to United States from two different Francophone countries. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area when I married my wonderful husband. I have food allergies and I have been blessed with beautiful children who have severe food allergies. After having to regularly read labels for both halal ingredients and food allergens, I have given myself an honorary PhD degree in “reading ingredients”. I started this blog to show that it is possible to still love food, despite any food “restrictions” that you encounter.
