    Dearest Reyna,

    Kol hakavod on a beautiful blog, website and book! I am so thrilled and impressed with all that you do, are doing and continue to do in the name of Judaism and kashrut. Most importantly through all of this, you are helping to teach others while being 100% true to yourself: your devotion, energy, passion, sense of humour, and your acute sense of style and elegance. This is an inspiration that is executed to perfection :)

    Lots of love and missing you guys everyday!

    Your book is fabulous! So far I have made many of the salads several times (in particular, the lox salad – AMAZING) as well as water challah. Can’t wait to try more! My husband’s family is from Syria and Egypt, but he likes Persian food too. I got the book when we had been married only a few months and it has been invaluable.

    Thank you for writing this cookbook!

    I am so happy you like the Blog! I get my rice in Costco (the big 10 pound bags) and the brand is Royal…I like it a lot. Tilda is also very good and very clean. Those are my favorite two brands. Tilda also makes brown Basmati rice which is absolutely delicious! Enjoy!

    Hi Reyna! I really enjoy your video’s and I was really excited to make the persian roulade but when I went on this website to figure out the exact measurements, I noticed that on your video you said half a cup of sugar and on this website you said 1 cup of sugar. I wasn’t really sure what to do and was wondering if you could help me. Thanks!

  17. Reyna Simnegar says:

    HI! 1 cup of sugar, sorry for the confusion.
