DALLAS, Tx- June 2017, DJARABI KITABS PUBLISHING is honored to release former 2014’s eBook version of Halal Comfort Food: The New Muslim’s Guide to Going Halal by M.K. Johnston in print. Masha’Allah.
“…following a halal diet seems pretty simple when you look at the guidelines in the Quran. But due to the way foods are processed in modern times, those few simple guidelines can become much more complex when put into practice. To further complicate things, there are a multitude of differing opinions on what is and isn’t halal, depending on what school of thought you belong to. Being a revert to Islam, and not having been raised in a particular school of thought and taught to think and act Islamically, one can feel pretty torn hearing and reading so many different opinions on what is and is not the correct way to eat/dress/think/pray/etc!” says M.K.Johnston.
About 116 pages, in Halal Comfort Food: The New Muslim’s Guide to Going Halal, you will find a wide variety of halal recipes, including old favorites from American cuisine with halal make-overs, plus some “new” favorites to add to your repertoire from the Muslim world.
Some of the recipes you will find include:
*Halal Breakfast Sausage
*Lasagna with Halal Italian Sausage
*Baked Mac & Cheese
*Biscuits & Gravy
*Red Beans & Rice
*Halal Marshmallow Treats
*Chocolate Chip Cookies
*and much, much more!

About M.K. Johnston:
M.K. Johnston is an American-born revert to Islam. She has a B.A. in Studies in Women and Gender from the University of Virginia. Although her career path has led her in many directions: from working as a prison guard, to counseling survivors of domestic abuse, to working with special needs children, to becoming a seller on eBay; M.K. has always had a deep and abiding love for two things: cooking and writing. After spending most of her spare time on one or the other interest, she eventually realized that she should combine her two loves and simply write about cooking. M.K. is the author of Halal Comfort Food: The New Muslim’s Guide to Going Halal, and is currently testing out new recipes for her next cookbook. M.K. lives in Virginia with her husband and two children, who are generally pretty happy to test out her culinary creations for her, and never seem to mind giving their honest opinions about them.
