My name is: Basma Al-Musallam.
Born in: November 13, 1985.
Interests: Graphic Design (My Major), Marketing (what I’m good at), photography and ofcourse cooking :)
all my good childhood memories were revolving around the kitchen, my art projects and our book shelves. I remember my mother and sisters sitting around the kitchen table chatting and helping my mother while she’s creating a new sensational dish.. I think I was 3 years old, holding the tip of the table and standing on my toes and barely able to look at what they’re doing :)
later on, my mother bought me a small wooden step so I can see (and secretly take back my pacifier from the wooden drawer at night ;) but that’s another story! ). at the age of 8, I made my very first sponge cake.. needless to say, it was a disaster and I’ve never baked sponge cakes ever again :), but I went to the kitchen the next day and made my first success.
the feeling was indescribable. My journey began there, at that day when I baked my first basbosa :D..
I’m not a cook, I’m a foodie.. I combine ingredients in my mind and rush to the grocery store to see if they work together. but before that, I call my eldest sister and we day dream together :D
have you ever wanted to do something, but never got the time to do it? well I have tons of those things so I decided to give myself the permission to pursue whatever makes me happy. cooking is the first step towards total happiness :)
13 Cups is a way of living. if 100% is what others give, I give the things I love 400% of my effort and time. 13Cups resembles my 400% attitude.
I wish you enjoy your stay!
