Julia lives in Chicago with her husband, 2 1/2 year old son Will and another baby boy on the way. In 2012 A Cedar Spoon (http://www.acedarspoon.com) was born out of Julia's passion to share healthy, local and seasonal recipes with family and friends. Cooking easy, wholesome, nutritional food for her family is a priority, especially as a busy, full time working Mom. She also has enjoyed sharing her favorite Lebanese family recipes with readers and tries to use Mediterranean flavors as much as possible.
Julia's Mom is a dietician and encouraged her to cook as a young child by involving her in even the simplest steps of a recipe and appreciating where her food comes from. This is something Julia does today with her son and shares tips with her readers on ways to get their kids cooking. Follow Julia on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
