Hello Chahira, I too am new here. When I seen you where from Egypt I thought I would ask your help. My daughter is engaged to a man from Egypt, who she met at college. I thought you might be able to help me with a few recipes to make him feel at home.

Hello and welcome to DC!
My wifes stepfather is from Egypt, not sure which city. He left in the 70's to go to Canada where he met my wifes mother and married her, then they moved here to the US. He is a Chemist and was following the jobs. I always joke we have an international family as I have German, French, and Native American on my side and she has Egyptian, Hungarian, and British on her side!
