A Pocketful of Notes is a place to share thoughts and ideas.


I can not define myself.  There are so many things that define me therefore I will pluck a few words and that should suffice.

I am a graduate of Cal State Long Beach.  I am a writer.  I am Mariam.

I am so vast…join me as I scribble some notes and post them along the web.

pass on the note…

For everything else, you may still send a note!

  12. Thanks for liking my post! BTW I was scrolling thru your recipes and noticed that you had a few middle eastern/greek recipes. You wouldn’t have to have a great tasting tzatiki sauce recipe would you? 🙂
