German Chocolate Cake

  Well, it has been a while since I have been able to post any recipes.  I have had a lot going on and had some other projects that were keeping me busy.  Sorry!  Anyway, I have a very good friend who is like a father to me and he has not been feeling well the past couple of weeks.  I knew his birthday was coming up so when I asked him the other day exactly which day in March...

Turkish Style Yogurt Marinated Chicken Fried Southern Style

  Well everyone loved my Oven Roasted Chicken Thighs so much, that I decided to put a Southern spin on the recipe.  I marinated the chicken as you would for the Oven Roasted Chicken in the Turkish style yogurt and spice marinade.  I then removed the chicken thighs from the fridge, coated them in seasoned flour and FRIED them!  The thighs were so moist and the crust was just a little tangy and spicy from the marinade.  If you try my recipe, Turkish...

Pasta with Meatballs

  One of my favorite comfort foods is Pasta with Meatballs.  I made these recently and used two pounds of meat because we were having guest over.  When I started to clean up, I was going to put what I thought was "some" meatballs into a container in the fridge.  There was one lonely meatball.  I guess nobody wanted to take the last meatball :-).  They were really delicious.  Try my recipe, I think you will like it. Pasta with...

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  Cookies are a girls best friend.  When you are feeling down and out a cookie can always put a smile on your face.  Is it the taste of the cookie that puts that smile there or just the memories of baking cookies with loved ones?  For me it is both, and here is a recipe for some yummy Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies I made the other night.  We enjoyed them with an ice cold glass of milk.  You should...

Chilly Weather calls for what else but Chili!!!

    Well, the weather here is chilly again and that cold wind blowing around got me in the mood for Chili.  If I say so myself, this was probably some of the best I have ever made.  It really hit the spot with everyone.  So much so that there was not even a drop left!  Try it out, I think you will really like it.  Of course for all the "hot heads" (jk) out there, you can always add...

The only Carrot Cake recipe you will ever want or need!

  Of all the cakes I have ever made, Carrot Cake has always been my favorite.  It is easy to make, healthy  (it's full of carrots right?) and the results are always the same.  It is my nephew, Billy's favorite and I used to make it for him for his birthday.  Since he was not living near me the past couple of years, I stopped making it because it made me miss him.  Well, I got great news . ....

You can make good Lahmacun in America!

  One of my favorite Turkish foods is Lahmacun.  Lahmacun is traditionally made mixing ground lamb with onions, pepper paste and some spices.  You can use beef if you prefer.  When I lived in Turkey, all I had to do was walk out onto the street and could easily find a Lahmacun Salonu or even better pick up the phone and order some to be delivered to the house.  Since, there are no Lahmacun Salons in Alabama, I figured I...

Leftover Chicken, Chickpea & Brocolli Pilaf

  Who says leftovers have to be boring?  Some of my best recipes have come about by cleaning out my fridge.  Tonight is no different.  I made some amazing rice with Chickpeas, Chicken, Broccoli and Peppers.  Hope you will try it and of course you don't have to wait till you have leftovers to make it.  You could just as well cook the chickpeas, chicken and broccoli before you start the recipe.  It is about a 25 minute dish if...
