"Homemade...and Secretly Delicious" was founded by a small group of friends who had one thing in common: they all loved healthy food. Through their summer together at the Urban Environmental Lab (UEL) in East Side Providence, they were able to take part of the Community Environmental College (CEC), a youth program run by former graduates of Brown University that focused on discussing today's major environmental problems and food injustices. That's where this blog came in. The goal of "Homemade...and Secretly Delicious" is to offer an easy access to simple yet healthful recipes that anyone can enjoy in the comfort of their own home. The eight makers of "Homemade...and Secretly Delicious" are Sarah, Sima, Suhair, Siraj,and Tusneem Janoudi, Gabriella and Stephanie Olivences and Aysha. Coming from multiple backgrounds and cultures inspires our love for home cooking and healthy eating. We recognize how much flavor our cultures and communities bring to food, and we want to share that with you. As youth, we care about taking the small steps today in order to make a big difference tomorrow. So follow us today and start cooking your way to a better and healthier future!
