The month of Ramadan is around the corner, which means everyone should have a qatayef recipe on hand for iftar. During Ramadan, Muslims around the world fast between sunrise and sunset.

One of the ingredients I miss the most from Syria is the famous Aleppo pepper.

It’s the goldilocks of peppers. You can usually find dried […]
