Welcome to MyHalwad, a destination for Somali Themed Cuisine


Welcome to my kitchen!

Jikadeeda ku SooDhawada!

MyHalwad comes from a Somali dessert called halwad (xalwad or xalwo). Halwad is one of my favorite desserts ever! I was born and raised in Somalia, and I’m a wife and mother of 3 beautiful children, Alhamdulillah. 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!
