I have been trying to write this post for 2 weeks! The recipe is ready, pictures are ready but I am honestly at a loss for words. I love writing the little stories, thoughts that you read before my recipes in most of my posts, they are my way of sharing a little bit of my world with all of you but with a nasty flu that has been going on for 10 days, the inauguration the other day among other things, I have been staring at my screen for days feeling uninspired.

You might have heard that Jordan among other countries in the area have been hit with a major snow storm. The storm was nicknamed Alexa, the first storm ever to get a name and I have to say that the storm earned it! It snowed none stop for three days, the temperatures dropped to 16 C below zero in certain areas and some places got as much as 180 cm of snow !

The weather forecast promises a winter that is the coldest in 70 years and December delivers! After 3 days of none stop rain and snow, all you crave is comfort food.Something warm, that transports you back to your mum’s kitchen. You are a kid again, at your family’s dinner table, hungry, cold and a little gloomy but  the hot steam coming off the plate that mum set before you with a smile makes you feel better just by looking at it.

Stuffed cabbage rolls is one of those recipes. Something my mum used to make on cold winter days. The cabbage leaves are neatly rolled and then cooked to perfection. They are so tender that they nearly melt into your mouth, the slow cooking brings out a subtle sweetness in them that pairs beautifully with the fresh tang of lemon juice and the faint garlic note from the garlic cloves nestled between them.
