About May I have that recipe



Close your eyes for a second. Imagine a gigantic blender in front of you. Add a piece of Spain, a chunk of Lebanon, a splash of Israel and a hint of America. Turn it on. Blend until smooth and voila! What do you get? Identity crisis? Not quite… (ok, maybe a little bit). But mostly, you get us. Confused? Keep reading and you’ll understand.

We are two Sephardic sisters, Vicky and Ruth, returning to our roots to harvest our Mediterranean background. Inspired by the foods of our childhood, our cooking is bold and full of flavor.

Many of our recipes are infused with items you might not have considered previously: …. lemon (always fresh!), sumac, zaatar, pomegranate molasses, orange blossom and rose water, that will enhance your cooking, allow you to experience new flavors, and get a taste of the Mediterranean without ever leaving your kitchen.

Now, thanks to our new blog,http://mayihavethatrecipe.com/, you’ll gain a more expanded cooking repertoire and serve a wider palette of bold flavors bursting with flavor and color.

Our real specialty is performing recipe makeovers; we start with a recipe that appeals to us, and then we change it to make it kosher, vegetarian, or vegan. Then we change it to make it healthier. We continue developing the recipe until it is perfect and then post it for you to use. We will often transform and adapt a recipe utilizing innovative products such as chia seeds, almond milk, coconut oil, almond flour.
