Hi, my name is Cayla. I am a native Californian living in Iraqi Kurdistan. My husband and I moved here in the spring of 2011 to work with a non-profit organization, Preemptive Love Coalition.
I created this blog originally to show the other ex-pats in our city that despite our limited access to the ingredients we are used to, there are still so many home-style and delicious things we can make.
Since moving here my diet has changed from the ‘healthy’ standard American diet to a more traditional, whole food diet. I feel better than ever and will continue sharing great recipes I find or come up with here on this blog.
Glad you came and hope you find something you will try tonight.
