“Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.” -Guy Fieri

honey and citron logo transI’m just a twenty-something year old Seattleite who loves to eat, cook, and be with my little family (I have 3 beautiful, intelligent, and creative little partners in crime) and my Honey who is amazing in his support for me and everything he does for us. I’ve got a passion for baking. I like the science and artistry of it and the fact that, you know, it’s science and art you can eat. I’ve been cooking as long as I can remember. When I was little I used to tell my mom I wanted to own a drive-through bakery.


I’m a first generation Arab-American. My father’s family came to America during the Lebanese Civil War in the 70’s so you bet your sweet and sticky cinnamon buns I have some killer Middle-Eastern family recipes to make, snap, and post. And based on the amount of Hummus I see leaving the grocery stores, I’m thinking that’ll be just fine with everyone.

So… Why the name Honey and Citron? I have friends, family, and old patients of mine who suffered from different digestive disorders, diseases, and cancers. I became more familiar with clean eating where I was replacing refined sugars for natural sweeteners like honey. The citron part? Maybe I’m just an all around zesty person…or maybe it’s because I love citrus fruits.

My goal here is to provide a no frills space where I can share some amazing food ideas, great recipes (including digestive safe options), and reviews of all the swanky places I eat and recipes I try. I love reading blogs, but when you’re a busy mom of three, you don’t always have time to write blogs at length. Here, I post a quick recipe note for whomever feels like reading it then get on to the recipe. Shout out to those of you who write those amazing cooking blogs with explanations and your journey through the recipes (I wish I was able to)!
