14 Years of Good Eating

Dear Atiya (and other loving endearments I can’t post publicly),

Today you are 14! You have already outgrown a very split-second “awkward” phase into a graceful, thoughtful and helpful young lady.You are always willing to try new tastes, even if apprehensive. You graciously eat whatever experiment I put in front of you. I cannot imagine enjoying cooking as much as I do without you and your sister. I anxiously wait to hear your low giggle and see your sister’s nod when you taste something you like. What a tasty adventure we’re on! Can’t wait to see where our taste buds take us next year. Love you.

This year your favorite foods included:

Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Tagine


Lamb Chops grilled or breaded and fried

Fried Eggs and toast

Ramen noodles stir-fried with eggs

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Khichuri and Egg curry

Fried Shrimp

Baked Potatoes and Chili

Berry Cobbler and Ice-cream

Blondies and Brownies

Fried Tofu


Sweet Yogurt

Lamb Curry and Cous Cous

Ground Chicken Kabobs with herbs

Dried Mango slices

Mango Ice-cream and smoothie

Nutella Crepes

Corn pancakes with blueberry sauce

Cauliflower fried rice

Fried Okra

Stuffed Cabbage

and more…

You don’t like salad, oatmeal or white bread/rolls. This year braces has made chewing challenging and slow for you. You have been most patient.

When you are ready to cook for yourself and others, I hope you can find all your favorite recipes here on this blog.

May you always eat well and giggle my baby,



Your Hungryphil Mom
