“Miriam, you describe your intimate relationship with Jesus with such sweet tenderness and affection. Although God allowed for some very dark times in your life, it is clear that His arms were always outstretched waiting for you to come back to Him. Yours is a very
powerful testimony of how God is with us even amidst the storms of our lives.”

“Miriam, your book is the most inspirational and motivational book I have ever read! I couldn’t put it down and read it in ten days! It helped me so much as I have gone through much of what you have.

I discovered God again reading your faith journey, and I am so grateful to you for writing your story.”

Cooking Middle Eastern Style: A Recipe for You!

One of my biggest joys these days is spending time in the kitchen cooking Middle Eastern food that I grew to love from my time in Israel. I discovered a wonderful cookbook Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi, who is a London restauranter, at a local bookstore.

Every week I have been making three different recipes, shopping for ingredients like eggplant, tahini paste and saffron and za’atar spices.  I remember walking through the souk or marketplace of the Old City of Jerusalem, where they sold spices in large barrels where I haggled over the prices.  Oh how I wish I could be there now.

My favorite memory of food during my time there was  lunch made by an Arab Christian cook at a local congregation in East Jerusalem.  Every Sunday, I would take the bus, looking forward to a homemade meal, something that was rare for us missionaries.  The cook would make Maqluba, a savory dish with chicken, eggplant, tomatoes, cauliflower and rice.  He would cook it up in a big round pan and then, plop, dump it upside down unto a platter, and serve.  This was the traditional way of serving Maqluba and our mouths would water in anticipation.

On this rainy day in March, I am cooking Maqluba for the first time, hoping I don’t dump it all over the floor.  I wish I could invite you, my readers, to my home to taste it so you can celebrate this special dish.  Instead, I will share the recipe here with you for your own culinary efforts. Enjoy!

And stay tuned here on my blog for when I publish my book, Finding God in the Midst of My Mess, that includes my travels in Israel and my adventures in food!
