Welcome to MyHalwad, a destination for Somali Themed Cuisine


Welcome to my Halwad kitchen!

Jikadeeda ku SooDhawada!

MyHalwad comes from a Somali dessert called xalwad or xalwo (Halwad), depending on what part of Somalia you are from. Halwad is one of my favorite desserts ever! I was born and raised in Somalia, and I’m a mother of 3 wonderful children, & a wife, Alhamdulillah. I’m a self-taught cook/baker, and cooking is my passion. I love to make traditional Somali food and create new ones with influences from all across the globe. In other words, Somali Fusion Cuisine, yum!                                                 

I hope you enjoy my recipes!

Thank you for stopping by!
