Welcome to my mothers’ kitchens!
My name is Magida. I have been cooking for as long as I can remember; starting from my own mom’s kitchen in the Far East (Philippines) and extending it to the kitchen of my mom-in-law in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia). While spending time in my own humble kitchen, I continue to notice the similarities and differences in the pantries and cooking of my two moms. I find them interesting and challenging, so I celebrate those.
My love for food is expressed in the phrase “I would try anything once.” From my mothers’ kitchens, I also exuberantly enjoy different foodies in my international travel, and yes, I try google-ing and cooking them when I return home.
You will find some Far Eastern and Middle Eastern recipes in this blog – understandably from my mothers’kitchens; a few international recipes, and “in-betweens” — which are new recipes that I come up with in my attempt to experiment.
I would not try to impress you with hard-to-find ingredients, nor would I confuse you with hard-to-understand instructions. I believe in simplifying things, including cooking. Well, some recipes take time to cook, that’s different. Whichever the case maybe, I am sure you will enjoy them, as much as I do!
Welcome again to my mothers’ kitchens — where my own kitchen was born.
