I’m Laila and I love to cook.

This is the simplest way I can introduce myself. But to be more specific I am originally Palestinian, born and lived for 30 years in Sharjah, UAE. Currently living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You can find moreΒ about me with every posted recipe I prepare.

I have been passionate about cooking since I was a child. I love to experiment with new recipes or make ones that has been passed down for generations in my family. Β I will be posting both types of recipes in this blog and will appreciate any feedback on recipes tried.

Please don’t hesitate to pass a comment if you have any difficulty following up or making any recipe that I post.

I hope you enjoy trying these recipes as much as I enjoy posting it.

Happy cooking! and as we say in Arabic “Sahha Wi Afia”

    Thanks Laila for the comment. I finished the blog yesterday, and it’s good to see you found it. That recipe comes from my Great Grandmother who brought it over from Croatia. Soon, I’m going to get with my Father and shoot videos every week or so about different heritage recipes that we use.

    Were looking forward to trying our a few of your own , perhaps the ‘Safiha’.
