Ramadan and the Eid’s
Preparing for the major Islamic holidays of Ramadan and Eid can feel overwhelming – especially if you’re new to it like I was. On this page you’ll find all of my posts about each of the celebrations. From iftar recipes to my general feelings on fasting plus Eid al Adha celebrations and recipes – there’s a little bit of everything.
