Welcome to my kitchen!

I’m thrilled to have you here! I’m Laila, a multitasking dynamo—a mother, wife, foodie, kitchen maestro, tea aficionado, marketing guru, and the creative force behind Petit Apron. My greatest joys revolve around gathering loved ones at a delicious table, sharing laughter, and indulging in decadent desserts at tea parties. When not in the kitchen, I love exploring new cuisines while traveling, taking refreshing swims in the ocean, and embracing culinary adventures.

Growing up in Morocco, I was mesmerized by my parents’ passion for cooking and love for hosting memorable gatherings. Hospitality was their true delight, igniting my fervor for culinary exploration and baking addiction.

Over a decade ago, I ventured to the U.S. for graduate school. I found my soulmate and chose Texas as my beloved second home. Welcoming the arrival of my precious baby girl, I stepped away from my career to dedicate more time to my family. During this period, I discovered the secret ingredient in every recipe—a sprinkle of love and boundless passion! Fueled by this passion, I created this online haven to share my cherished recipes and whimsical creations.

Petit Apron Was Born!

Petit Apron was born out of my desire to honor the richness of Moroccan cuisine, embrace the wholesome Mediterranean meals, and savor the simplicity of International dishes. In the spirit of balanced eating, I’ve also included a delightful selection of mouthwatering dessert recipes!

Finally, I’ve dedicated a special segment called Cook & Learn to provide educational blogs. This section is a treasure trove of cooking techniques and diverse culinary traditions! Additionally, you can discover the ingredients and tools that bring magic to my kitchen and find answers to FAQs! For an immersive experience, catch my Q&A live chat video, where I delve into Moroccan food, spices, and recipes.

Fueling my crazy passion for cooking, I joyfully develop simple recipes that showcase my cultural heritage. As you dive into the culinary wonders of Petit Apron, prepare to be inspired to try something new and embark on delightful gastronomic adventures.
