ElZaA stands for..

I've often been asked what ElZaA stands for ..

Well since I started this Blog for the sake of my children, I named it after them too..

So the El stands for Elli, which is the nickname I have for Alina... and Za is for Zara and A for Abdullah..

I hope that one of these days they will benefit from this attempt of mine.. and of course, the fact that I wish to help others get to goals a bit easier.. especially since I remember how hard it was for me to get there...

Here's hoping this attempt succeeds :)

I believe cooking has got a lot to do with love. Love of good food, of family, of togetherness. One either enters the kitchen with the attitude of 'I want to', or doesnt bother at all. 'I must' is an unfriendly thought at such times.

Apart from that, I  would love to hear from you. Please do me the favour and let me know what you think - about this blog, my recipes or even life and living in general.

Enjoy your stay on ElZaA... thanks for stopping by :) 

Much Love!
