Hello, friends of AZ Cookbook!

I hope your spring is off to a good start. To me, spring is always about a change long overdue, the prospect of a new start that always fuels me up to take on exciting projects, dreams that cannot wait to come true, and about positivity and good vibes that I am always on the lookout for. In short, viva spring! I am all for it.

My spring let-the-change-begin mood has affected my blog as well. I’ve been working on some good things for my blog and soon you will hear more from me.

Let’s start with the first news. Here it comes! I am super excited to announce the launch of the:

All-New AZ Cookbook Shop

Welcome to my virtual store, friends! It’s officially live! Let’s get started with your shopping spree here:) Treat yourself to great kitchen utensils, ingredients, books, and more. I only recommend the items I use or like.  So, shop with confidence!

Why Shop on AZ Cookbook

First, because we all need utensils for our kitchen, gifts for ourselves and friends, books for our shelves, and ingredients for our pantries, so why not buy what has been hand-picked for us and passed the test? Second, when you shop on AZ Cookbook, you support me, so I can keep blogging and providing you with awesome content for free! So, it’s a win-win all the way, isn’t it?

    A couple of days ago, I found myself craving  sweet breads, and as a result,  frantically leafing through cookbooks in search of something tall, filled, tender, and perfect with a cup of tea.

The recipe, published in “Pomegranates & Saffron,” received raving reviews from class participants and I thought to share it on the blog, too.

    January 16, 2017 by

I will most likely make them into sweet preserves, in which chunks of squash are cooked with  sugar until golden and tender. They are so good! Serve them...
