Some background: I am Maryam, born in Baku, Azerbaijan (look it up here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baku), currently living in New York, while the rest of my family is back in the state of Washington. I am a looong way from home, but that’s ok!
Since I am far away from my immediate family, I don’t get as many chances to eat traditional food from Azerbaijan. I also love cooking, writing AND I love sarcasm. SO, I decided to combine everything in this blog. How? you ask. Well, the main subject of this blog will be my cooking, sometimes food from Azerbaijan, but not alway. I will also talk about what works, what didn’t and why it didn’t (most likely human error by yours truly). I am a generally good cook (so I say), but I am no Ina Garten (gotta love her), hence there are some pretty funny “fails”. So bear with me, questions are welcome and comments are also (you can be mean, go ahead). Enjoy!
