M.K. has always had a deep and abiding love for food--both eating it, and cooking it. As a child, the kitchen was her favorite room in the house, and she loved to spend her time dreaming up new recipes, mostly involving Velveeta.
Raised in the South, where pork is considered a major food group, M.K. realized that she would have to make a lot of changes once she reverted to Islam and adopted a halal diet. But far from limiting her choices, M.K. found that cooking halal opened up a whole new world of culinary adventures.
The kitchen is still M.K.'s favorite room in the house. Now she likes to spend her time coming up with halal makeovers for all of her old favorite dishes (her pork-free smothered "pork" chop recipe is amazing), and exploring halal cuisine from around the world.
And when she gets the chance, she writes it all down.
