I’m Rachel.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I’m happy you’re here. I am the food blogger behind “Mama Living Abroad.” In this space, I share flavorful Israeli and Jewish recipes that I love to make and have been approved by my family and friends. My blog is 100% Kosher.

Having a blog has been a dream of mine for many years. When the world came to a standstill in early 2020, I found an opportunity to share my love of food. I had little idea that blogging would take off as it did. I’m happy that so many people are engaging with me through the blog and social media. I’m excited to share my culinary journey and food photography with you. I am hoping to inspire you to try the recipes yourself

A Little More About Me…

Growing up in Israel and spending a lot of time in the family kitchen taught me about Jewish and Israeli food and culture. Every Friday night, we gathered at my grandparents’ house, sitting around the big table with good food, great conversation, and wonderful friends and family. However, despite my love for food, I didn’t cook much.

In 2013, I moved with my husband and two boys to the US. Living away from home with very young kids was not easy. As I was constantly being put out of my comfort zone in everyday life, making food from home gave me a lot of comfort. Sharing meals with friends and neighbors warmed my heart and eased the transition into a new country. You never realize how strongly tied you are to the culture of your home country until you move abroad. I devoured cookbooks, food magazines, and videos, learning a lot through trial and error. Many of the recipes are my own, while some are inspired by cooks I admire.

We eat with our eyes. Every photo you see on this blog is taken by me. I am excited to share my culinary journey and food photography with you. I am hoping to inspire you to try the recipes yourself.
