about me

Hi and welcome to My Kitchen Kohl.

Kitchen BakingI’m a home cook and recipe developer from Brisbane, Down Under. My love for cooking and photography are the essence of this blog, and along with my Middle Eastern heritage, I’ll be posting some exotic cooking on the blog. I chose the name “My Kitchen Kohl” to reflect this, and also – just as kohl beautifies the eye – to illustrate how the dishes that come out of my kitchen are the result of a beautiful time in the kitchen.

I started recipe developing from my love of substitutions – because not everyone’s pantries are the same! I almost can’t ever follow a recipe word for word (yet I love to make my own) and I love quick fixes for little problems that happen, so that a little delicacy and be created out of every disaster!

Please join me on my blogging journey and pitch in with your ideas and feedback. 🙂

      Salaams Jehanne!
      Thank you very much for popping by. When I get the time to scratch my head, I’ll be sure to pop in and take a closer look at your blog. I’ve just seen a snippet now, and my, your pics are stunning masha Allah.
      Will definitely be back for a dig!
      Thank you for your nice comment, may I ask though, is your name pronounced as just “je-han”? I’m assuming so 🙂
      Beautiful name I must say!
      Stay in touch. 🙂

    I’ve just found your blog from the link on Mad Dog’s and it looks great. I love your subtitle….being a lazy cook who loves good food! I’ll be following you and your Syrian recipes from here on the western side of the Mediterranean.

    I am so happy I found your Blog fati. I love cooking Syrian food, and believe it to be healthier than many other Middle Eastern cuisines. Please post some special recipes with a Damascene touch.
