11 Signs That you Grew Up in Middle Eastern Home….

Part of my mission with this Feast in the Middle East project is to increase cultural understanding. There were certainly some unique cultural experiences that I had in my upbringing as a first generation Arab American that some people might find a little kooky.  Conversely, if you grew up in a Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian, Jordanian, Armenian, Greek, or even Italian household, some of these experiences might resonate with you, and make you think “Oooh I am not the only one!”  So, I hope if you had these experiences as well growing up you will feel validated!  If my video below sounds completely foreign to you, hopefully you have gained a deeper understanding of Middle Eastern culture. If you have experiences to add to this list, please leave them in the comments below! I will be uploading a new healthy dessert recipe next week, but in the meantime, hope you enjoy this video:
