- I love the concept of mamzixiing a food's full potential and I have probably the spent the past two years trying to come up with better recipes and tastier ways to work with some of the staples I was used to throughout my childhood. Of course, in some strange quirk, I have a knack for baked goods and desserts and not much of a cook (I once destroyed instant ramen noodles), but I'm trying to get better! Looking forward to new episodes and I can definitely use the chicken stock recipe it's gluten-free!

- I was totally not equipped for ... nor did I have the actual coffee to make this wonderful beverage ... but succeeded with diligence! I used a small stainless steel pot instead of the ibrik or cezve ... and I ground my coffee finer with one of those little electric grinders. Then using your recipe ... with several reviews of many YouTube videos on timing and temperature ... experienced the most awesome drink ever!!! I absolutely love it!! I knew it would be good! I let it 'foam' three times for about 30 seconds or so. I enjoy it sweetened a little ... with either honey or brown sugar. It is delightful!! ... and every recipe I have tried from the Middle East has been a great experience on many levels!!! Thank you for providing this!!! :o)

- grew up with grape leaves, we had an arbor in our back yard. Making dolma was a childhood experience that lives on...mixing left over rice and meat, or even a chopped egg made for a wonderful finger food. We even used cabbage leaves, blanched for variety...hummus also part of the childnood lexicon. We would also mash lima beans with a little olive oil to make a spread for pita bread, all delicious and so easy
