We had some wonderful Greek neighbors when my kids were little and she made stuffed grape leaves and many other wonderful dishes. I was only in my 20's and working and she was always trying to help me with my cooking or caring for the kids. My kids called them nana and papou. She came over sometimes and made them lemon toast and they both still love it. If we were having company, her dh would tell me to only cook the veggies and sides and he would cook the meat or chicken, etc. for me. He made the most wonderful Greek lemon chicken. I should have paid more attention to recipes then. She could get my son to sleep in a jiffy - said my shoulders were too skinny for a baby to rest on. She was very ample. Boy, she wouldn't think they were so skinny now.

There are some recipes I'd love to have from Jordan! There is a restaurant in Sunnyvale, CA named Dish Dash and I'd love to learn to make some of the things they serve, as they are too far to pop in for lunch!

Maybe when your mom has returned we can start a new thread on Jordanian cuiisne?!?

Thanks!

For starters. LOL I cook Moroccan, some Egyptian, Lebanese, a lot of Thai (I am the Thai Food Editor on Bellaonline.com), Vietnamese, Turkish, Indian (various styles) and so on.

I haven't even tried to cook Jordanian food but after eating at Dish Dash I am in love with the flavours.

let's hear from mama spanishsky!!!

a local greek diner puts them on their salads, the meatless kind, and they are fantastic. they have a perfumey quality to them that you sense in the back of your nose and throat when eaten, i can't really describe it. has anyone else experienced this?
