UmmHamza is an English Muslim woman in her late 20s and is married to an Algerian. You will find plenty of North African, British and American recipes on her Blog. And oh yeah, she is crazily in love with lemons which is very evident in her collection of recipes and pins. I am so very humbled to be featured on her space while she is with her in-laws in Algeria spending quality time.
