Aziza's Recipes

I love to cook. Scratch that; I love to feed people. To know that someone can get enjoyment and nourishment from something that I prepared with my love, knowledge, skill and passion, brings me so much joy and satisfaction. I've been cooking since I was seven years old and with my large family, there was always people to feed. With my very strict and demanding father my capabilities were constantly tested and pushed to the limit. And since I didn't go to school, I had time to try new things.

At the request of one of my readers, I will share some of my recipes for everyone to try. But before we begin I want to let you in on a little secret. With every recipe one ingredient will not be listed, because I'm about to tell you what it is and you have to remember it (it is a secret right?).
Okay, here goes; the secret ingredient in all of my recipes; whether it's cake, cookies, pot pie or pancakes; no matter what, without a doubt, you can never forget the music! So get your radio, mp3 player, cell phone or laptop; put on your favorite tunes and get cooking!
Dancing while you wait for the water to boil or the oven to preheat is allowed ;-)
