Some background: I am Maryam, born in Baku, Azerbaijan (look it up here:, currently living in Connecticut with my husband, while the rest of my family is back in the state of Washington. I am a looong way from home, but that’s ok!

I read somewhere that one of the things you absolutely “must” do in your twenties is start a blog. I was anti blog ever since the notion came around. However, I love writing. And I love cooking. And I love sarcasm. SO, I decided to combine the three. How? you ask. Well, the main subject of this blog will be my cooking, what works, what didn’t  why it didn’t (most likely human error by yours truly).
I am also newly married, moved all the way to the East Coast from the beautiful Seattle, so lots of awkwardness and hilariousness ensues on daily basis. My husband does and says pretty funny things. I am no better. I am a generally good cook (so I say), but I am no Julia Child (thank God for that!), 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!
