About Me

I am Canadian/Lebanese/Syrian. Yes, a melting pot. I was born in Montreal and moved to Cairo Egypt were I spent 19 years with my father's family (who are from Syrian Lebanese origin). I then moved back to Montreal to finish my studies in marketing and advertising. I am a mother to two beautiful daughters.

Love colors, harmony, nature and life. I owned my first camera at the age of 7. Photography is a passion and through the lens, I see a different world. I am in constant search of the perfect setting, lighting and mood. I am inspired by people, life, travel and food photography.
Visit my Flickr Portfolio to lean more.

I have worked in Marketing and advertisement and graphic design for more than 15 years. Now I am a freelancer and work on projects in branding, promotion, social media creation, graphic design, photography and blogging.

I started cooking at the age of 9 and with the years became a home gourmet cook acclaimed by family and friends.
So now I have transformed my passion into reality with my blog www.aromasoftime.com where I share my recipes with all food lovers. I test recipes several times to make sure they really do work. Many are recipes of my own creation or recipes passed down to my family and friends. My grandmother was a big inspiration in my life and I will be cooking many recipes from her recipe book. I hope that one day this blog will be a memoir for my two daughters to turn to every time they want to cook one of my recipes and remember me

I am also a globe trotter. I have lived in : Cairo/Egypt; Montreal/ Canada and in the Dominican Republic.
Countries I visited: Tunisia, Rhodos (Greece), Turkey, Switzerland, Paris (France), Madrid (Spain), New York, Boston and Chicago (USA), Dominican Rebublic, Colombia.

I speak: French, English, Arabic, German and understand: Italian and Spanish. So please don't be shy to leave me your comments and questions. I will do my best to answer you back and share my know-how with you.

  1. very nice blog! Do you happen to know who made the turquoise cake with pink flowers from the Montreal cake show that you posted a pic of ?


    1. Thank you Natalie. They were not all indicated. There were so many cakes. So I only took the ones that impressed me the most. I am sure though that if you send the picture of the turquoise cake to http://cakeshowmontreal.com in the question section, they might know who made it as it was a competition and the number of the cake is show in the picture. ;)
