A Simple, Refreshing, Anytime (Madzoon, aka Yogurt) Dessert

Have you had a chance to make our recipe for homemade yogurt? or Sita Jebelian’s microwave oven method for making yogurt? No? It
doesn’t matter. You can still enjoy this simple, refreshing recipe using a
good-quality, store-bought variety.

This dessert is satisfying anytime, day or night,
throughout the year.

  • Came across your site looking for a meatball recipe my mother in law used to make(lots of cumin and garlic). I married into an Armenian family many yrs ago and learned a lot of your traditional recipes. They are to this day my favorites. I'm sharing your web site with my daughter, she will enjoy it as much as I do.
