My name is Mariam Ezzeddine, a food blogger, a wife, a mom, recipe and video creator, food photographer, blog writer, and an influencer. Though you know me as a food blogger, I never had a food background before. I graduated with a Criminal Justice degree to work in the federal government field. But then discovered that my passion is food.
I am married to an amazing husband and have two wonderful boys, who fill my life with so much joy. We live in the Dallas, Forth Worth area in Texas. We love traveling to different countries to experience the food and culture. But one of our favorite places to go is Lebanon, where our families are from, so we can spend time with them since they all live so far away.
A little bit of my background: I was born and raised in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where I grew up until the age of 14. My family and I migrated to the U.S in 1999 due to the civil war in Sierra Leone and have been living here since then. My parents are originally from Lebanon, which is located in the Middle East, and that’s where I get all my experience and knowledge to create the best Lebanese recipes for you.
How It All Started
When I got married, I moved far away from my family, and didn’t know one thing about cooking. My mom was no longer close to cook for me. I taught myself to cook out of motivation, and most my recipes come from experiences in the kitchen, my mom, my grandmother, friends and extended family. And there are always the social media trends that inspire me to come up with similar recipes.
Thus, Cookin’ with Mima was born! I started with my Instagram journey in 2014, sharing simple recipes made at home, as a hobby. Then after a few years, with many people wanting more of my recipes, I decided to start a blog and provide readers with full recipes and photos to help guide them and make it easier for them to cook. One recipe after another, we are here today, a blog with all you wonderful people.
As the blog ages, my recipe collection will continue to grow. I will perfect and share every single recipe I create for my family with you and hope you enjoy all of them as much as we do, so they will become you family’s favorite as well.
I would love to always hear from you, so do not hesitate to Contact Me at any time!
