Hi! My name is Salimah. I’m the face behind This Mom’s Kitchen. I’m so glad you’ve decided to accompany me on my delicious food adventures!
I grew up in a land of rich aromatic spices and bold tantalizing flavours. From a young age I spent a lot of time in the kitchen eagerly watching my grandmothers and mom cook all my childhood favourites.
Stepping into my own kitchen was a different story though. At first, I could barely fry an egg without setting off the smoke alarm. But I’ve come a long way since then.
I was born and raised in Pakistan but spent some of my childhood years in Tanzania before immigrating to Canada. I was lucky to experience both unique culinary cultures and over the years, I’ve enjoyed cooking both Pakistani and East African cuisines.
I’m a Dental hygienist, a wife and mother to 3 amazing girls. I always encourage my kids to join me in the kitchen and learn…we have so much fun together.
Cooking should be fun and easy—without having to spend hours to get a meal on the table. Through this blog, I hope you’ll learn to make some of my favourite cultural foods as well as a wide variety of other dishes in a way that makes you feel less intimidated in the kitchen.
