Now I have never been a gourmet cook, but I have always been a gourmet eater! In the Spring
of 2002 I began gathering recipes from my sister-friends from around the world. Their seventy-
eight recipes including a few of my own are offered in this cookbook for your dining pleasure.
I selected five main categories for placing the recipes in a sorta logical grouping. Placement
in each category was at random. I haven't any preference for one recipe over another as I love
each of them! The addition of some fun and laughter while cooking comes in the form of eleven
original fun-food short-short stories and poems and 6 comic illustrations created by talented
illustrator, Shirley Anjum. These were placed at random in the cookbook, but with a purpose.
They are the cookbook's "little jewels" among the treasure trove of recipes.
Halal Food, Fun and Laughter combines a winning "recipe" for a healthy lifestyle: good halal
food, some fun and laughter and last but most importantly, remembrances of Allah, by inclusion
of some wonderful food specific Qur'an and Hadith to help create a happier and healthier recipe
for your life.
