Welcome to The Old Country Blog.
When I started blogging in 2012 as a student at Louisiana State University, it was a way to record the traditional Lebanese, New Orleans and German recipes my grandma taught me — along with global food roots and traditions.
But this little blog grew to document all of life's celebrations and reflected my own changing life as I graduated, moved to Washington DC and then to Pittsburgh and worked as a writer.
You should also know this picture is totally staged. When I write on that couch in real-life, I never wear shoes. Or lipstick. Or non-elastic pants. But, I do spend a lot of time on the couch writing. You may have read me online at Hello Giggles, National Geographic or Pop City, a Pittsburgh online alt-weekly where I am the development editor.
I hope you stay awhile for recipes, travel stories, wedding planning, crafts and cute pictures of my dog Rasco.
