The Joyful Moments Of Cooking. How Much I Love It

In my life, one of the most joyful and satisfaction I receive is when I cook, bake and enjoy my time in the kitchen with all my favourite kitchen appliances that make my cooking a lot more enjoyable and fun at the same time. I was 8 years old and I remember cooking rice for the very first time. It was the best feeling in the world when my mom taught me how to wash it and cook it. Now with my mom’s supervision she watched me as I cooked and she said, great job and it was my first time doing it. I got so excited. From then on, I started cooking a lot for my family and then as soon as I turned 14 years old, I did not need supervision anymore, and I could do everything on my own. I learned how to make lasagna, chicken soup, and other different types of food since I was 10 years old. When I turned 20 years old, I began to take over the kitchen and I would tell my mom to go relax, and I told her I got this. So now without my mom being in the kitchen, I do all sorts of dishes, I bake cakes, cupcakes, I make cookies, jello, home-made ice cream, fruit platters, salads, I marinate meats, I make meatballs, Ravioli, Armenian and Middle Eastern Dishes, I make my famous Chilli, different types of breakfast, dips, sauces, and everything, Among other delicious things that my family, and who comes over to my house, that always want seconds and even thirds sometimes. I sometimes think, I should have made extra, but I love it when there is no left overs.  I love making everything from scratch. I seldom go and buy ready-made easy stuff, I enjoy making it all on my own. The best way to make it and you know exactly what is going into your food without all the added calories and ready-made products. Sometimes you see ready-made pasta, and lasagna trays from the grocery store, I never even touch those. I make mine fresh. You never know how long those things have stayed like that. I’d rather do it myself and it is a lot more fun that way.

I remember a time when I invited my whole group of friends over for Armenian Style Ravioli Called (Mante, Manti, Mantuh, Mantee, However they spell it), and the whole extra-large pot finished amongst everyone and to this day, they want my Armenian Style Ravioli, but that day will come again when I will invite them over.  I remember a time when I cooked for over 20-25 people and all on my own. I had over 4 or 5 different dishes with salads, meats, and rice. It was a lot of fun although it was very hard to take it all on myself, but I made sure that the flavours were perfect and that everyone enjoyed it and they sure did. I love taking on big tasks on my own. Although it is great to receive help too, but I like taking on challenges and doing things on my own. especially when it comes to cooking. I don’t know, but I have become a perfectionist in the kitchen and I just love things to be cooked evenly, the sizes and I love the presentation. Even if it’s just for my family on a regular dinner night. I just love the presentation. I get the joys and satisfaction when doing so.

When I go grocery shopping, I also donate food to the less fortunate, and I put food in the food bank boxes that are put in front of grocery stores or in certain shelters, at my church they have food banks and I put a few non-perishable food items in the box. I love donating food to them. Knowing that a family out there who is less fortunate and needy is fed, that also makes me happy and that also makes me feel great that someone doesn’t have to go to bed hungry at night. It feels great to donate.

Food is my specialty and knowing that my family enjoys it and knowing that I made this with my love and care is what it important to me. I don’t cook because I have to everyday and I don’t cook for the sake of it, I actually love doing what I do and making sure my family is fed with the best possible nutrition.  Happy Cooking everyone!

Growing Out My Hair To Donate To Cancer Patients

In the last few years, I have learned about people growing their hair, and a lot of people have donated hair to causes such as the terrible disease called cancer and this year I decided to Grow out my hair and make it long to donate to those who are living with cancer. I want to make a difference in one persons life to have hair, as unfortunately cancer therapy takes away hair from patients. My hair grows quite quickly per month and this is something I want to do for society, to make a difference, to reach out to others who need something. Cancer is such a terrible disease, and my thoughts and prayers for those living with it, and I wish you all a speedy recovery and to get back to life and win the battle with this terrible disease, and my condolences to those who have lost people in their lives with this disease or any other one. It is not easy. I’ve lost a few people to cancer in my family, and some family friends and its something that I want to help people with, and donating my hair for Cancer is something I can give to someone who lost hair. I really feel the need to do this for someone. Like I said, its something very personal to me and even if it wasn’t so personal, I will help people no matter what.

I hope cancer cures can be found soon and people can be cured and go on with life, to grow back hair, to grow back into life, to do everything. So I made the decision and I will be helping people out. That is a goal of mine.

The Armenia Tree Project — Greening Armenia Since 1994

Just a few years ago, I discovered a vibrant and wonderful program called The Armenia Tree Project, and right away subscribed and became a member. The Armenia Tree Project is something that is very important for Armenia. Nearly 60,000 trees were planted in Armenia’s towns, villages, rural areas, family backyards, in front of churches and other historical monuments and historical structures that make it bloom more. The community tree planting has restored over 1.1 million trees in Armenia and Artsakh. To this day, they will continue to restore forests to make it vibrant and beautiful. Armenia is a beautiful country and it is mountainous. Armenia has beautiful winding roads that lead to a church there, and a church here, and every turn there is always something to see, whether its mountains, or historical monument, statue, and so much more. Armenia’s Agriculture, Forestation and environment is so beautiful and the Armenia tree project is doing their best to make sure Armenia is taken care of.

Armenia and Armenians have faced challenges of the past with the Armenian Genocide of April 24, 1915 committed by the Ottoman Turks of Turkey with killing 1.5 million Armenians and plus the 1988 Earthquake of December which killed about 25,000 people and did a lot of damage, and so the Armenia Tree Project helped restore a country who has been through it all. The main mission to this beautiful project is to make Armenia vibrant which it already has been and to protect the future of the environment, nature conservancy, and provide care and greatness to our beautiful Armenia.

Thank you to Jeff Masarjian for your incredible and beautiful spirit and to all those involved into this, thank you to the donations given by so many people, thank you for all the efforts made to make Armenia whole again.

The Children of Armenia in The Town Of Kapan – Need Your Help

Hello, I would like to talk to you about something that has hit close to my heart and close to home. A Friend of Mine who has moved to Armenia about 8 Months ago in the town of Kapan about 5 Hours away from The Capital City of Armenia, Yerevan and she is helping children in need of a better life and future ahead. It pains me to see Children suffering and not being able to have the necessities needed in life to survive. It just hits me close to home thinking about it. This little boy named Alex is one of the people that needs help to walk. His story is located on this link http://goquests.com/go/m/fundraiser/view/Help-Alex-Poghossyan-Walk . These Children need to go to Yerevan to seek treatment as transportation to Yerevan is $100 CAD Canadian and it is very costly to Parents who live in that region that only make about $250-300 a month and can barely make ends meet and as well as accommodation, food expenses, medical, hospital stays, all add up. This boy unlike others, he is in terrible condition and was sent to Yerevan by my Friend who too him to get IV Treatment in intensive care. Now if this is left untreated, he may become amputated. The Government needs to take care of their citizens more properly and give people the treatment they deserve, but unfortunately money conquers everything else and without money healthcare of an individual will not go so far and terrible things can happen and unfortunately some do not make it for another day in life.

My Friend Momo Khustup, does miracle work for these children to get the best care they need, and without generous donations, these children will have an uncertain future ahead and will be left with dealing with these debilitating diseases and disabilities. The time is now to help out. Any amount of donation will be helpful in any which way. Your donations will make a great impact on a child’s life and substantially help them out a great deal by doing so. It doesn’t matter if it is 10, 20, 30, even 100 dollars, any amount will make a world of a difference and you can help put a smile on a child’s face that is in need. Our children are our future and we need children to get healthy and be well to be kids, to have a great childhood, to be able to have a normal life. So donate today, give a child another chance at life and make a difference. You can make a difference. Thank you….
