Hi there! I’m Julia and I am so happy you stopped by this little corner of the world.
On A Cedar Spoon I share nutritious, easy recipes with the busy cook in mind, along with my Lebanese family recipes.
Cooking is in my blood. My fondest memories are of my family gathering in the kitchen over hummus and pita bread, sharing stories and enjoying each others company. Food has a way of bringing us together. My Grandma and Mom are two of the best cooks out there in my humble opinion. No one can make tabbouleh like my Grandma. My Mom is a dietitian and has instilled healthy eating in me from a young age (which explains my fruit and veggie
love obsession). My goal is to cook nutritious meals for my family, while still enjoying the sweet things in life. I don’t believe in eliminating the foods you love because of a diet, but eating everything in moderation.
Aside from creating recipes and blogging these two little guys keep me on my toes and very busy.
My husband Mike, is my main taste tester, which he does happily as long as it doesn’t contain mayonnaise, pickles or olives. My three year old is my other “taste tester” but more for the pint sized people. Many of the recipes I make are family friendly, with my son in mind and a few hidden veggies added in!
I hope you find some recipes here that inspire you to get creative in the kitchen.
