Christine and I have been ‘sharing’ recipes for a number of years via email. Most recently she sent me a link to her recipe for 'Armenian Rice Pilaf with Raisins and Almonds' which appeared in The New York Times.

Both her mother's and her recipes appear in a recent edition of the ‘Fresno Bee Flavors Magazine’ (November, 2014). It's a great collection of recipes mostly featuring California products. If you take the time to read through it, and I recommend you do, you'll see all sorts of delicious recipes including some from other Armenian ladies from the Fresno area.
Christine's love for her family and Armenian heritage is inspiring.
