I have all of my best ideas while I’m exercising, which really stinks because I HATE exercising. This one came to me earlier this month following a dinner with our Afghani friends. I asked what some traditional breakfast foods are in Afghanistan, and they described something they translated as “sugar cheese” and promised to make it for us soon.
I didn’t think too much more about it, then climbed on the elliptical to torture myself in the name of endorphins and good health — and I was struck with a brilliant idea. What if we put together a recipe book of our own countries’ traditional breakfast foods?
I put the question out there on Instagram and Facebook, and I was overwhelmed by the response! While I was expecting to receive 20 or so recipes, you all responded with 72 recipes from 36 different places around the world!
I did my best to compile all of these breakfast recipes into one cohesive recipe book, and I am in love with the result. It is available here as a free download — no email subscription required. Download yours to use on your phone or tablet, print out recipes as needed, or send the whole thing out to be printed and bound into a real book. Most importantly, remember how this Breakfast Around the World Recipe Book came to be — simple family recipes sent from regular people just like you and me — and how sharing our food and traditions can help connect us no matter where we live.
