Creamy Feta Herb Spread

Creamy Feta Herb Spread

Creamy Feta Herb Spread Before we talk about my Creamy Feta Herb Spread recipe, I need to tell you a story that is funny today but not so much yesterday.  I made this yummy spread and decided to take it outside on my back porch for photographs and then snacking.  I needed to call my friend Ange, you should remember her from the Decadent Chocolate Cake post.   Well, her mom answered the phone so I was talking to her...

Savory Sesame Gruyère Pastries

Savory Sesame Gruyère Pastries

Savory Sesame Gruyère Pastries When I made my Savory Sesame Gruyère Pastries, I was transported to my summer days in Turkey.  Sipping hot tea by the seaside is one of the things I miss most about Turkey.  Turks love their hot tea like us Southerners love our Sweet Iced Tea.  In Turkey, you can just stop by a bakery and pick up both sweet and savory pastries to go with your tea.  They are delicious and inexpensive.  Since I don't...

4 Ingredient Cheese Ball

4 Ingredient Cheese Ball with Crackers

4 Ingredient Cheese Ball I guess you all know by now that I love cheese.  Like really, really, really, REALLY love cheese!  One of my favorite ways of enjoying cheese is by making my 4 Ingredient Cheese Ball and eating it with some Triscuit or Ritz Crackers.  This recipe is so easy and it only has 4 ingredients and takes literally minutes to prepare.  You could shape this into any shape you like such as a log.  My sister, cousin and...

Gluten Free Fried Veggie Trio with Spicy Feta Sauce

Gluten Free Fried Veggie Trio with Spicy Feta Sauce

Gluten Free Fried Veggie Trio with Spicy Feta Sauce Since writing my post,  Banana Nut Waffles (which were almost gluten-free), I have been thinking about other ways to use rice flour.  It really makes for a light and crispy coating.   My Gluten Free Fried Veggie Trio with Spicy Feta Sauce will have you licking your fingers.  I served this as a side to some yummy chicken I cooked in the slow cooker and it went great together.  This would be a...

Garlic Yogurt Sauce

Garlic Yogurt Sauce Garlic Yogurt Sauce is one of my family's favorite sauces.  Because it is so versatile, we use it like most people use Ranch Dressing.  It is so good on oven roast potatoes, french fries, kofte (Turkish meatballs) and sandwiches.  It was especially good on the Falafel sandwiches I made recently.  Honestly, I could almost drink this stuff.  Another variation on this sauce would be to add some seeded and chopped cucumbers.  You could make this a little thicker...

Tahini Sauce

Tahini Sauce Tahini Sauce is a great sauce for Falafel Sandwiches and Kofte.  The main ingredient in this sauce is tahini which is ground sesame paste.   It adds loads of flavor to dishes like hummus. In Turkey, they even use tahini to make something called Tahin-pekmez, which is tahini mixed with pekmez (molasses) that is served at breakfast on bread or sometimes as a dessert.  This sauce could also be used as a dressing for a chopped salad.  You...

Kısır

Kısır is a delicious and light salad that can also be served as a meze (Turkish appetizer).  You start out with fine bulgur wheat and add in chopped tomatoes, parsley, mint, green onions, peppers, pepper paste, lemon juice and/or pomegranate molasses, olive oil and salt. You can find the pomegranate molasses online at Bakkal International or at most Middle Eastern Grocery Stores.   This dish is perfect for a picnic because it can be served chilled or at room temperature....

Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Dip

  Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Dip Since the State of Alabama was shut down by our 6-9 inches of snow, there was a whole lot of nothing going on outside.  Boredom quickly set in so what else was left to do except snack.  Luckily,  I had bought some Ruffles and Cheese It Grooves the other day.  After sitting here watching my "show", Paramparca over the internet for a couple of hours, I decided to get off my behind and make...

Easy Skillet Rolls with Pepperoni Jalapeno Cheese Dip

This recipe for Easy Skillet Rolls with Pepperoni Jalapeno Cheese Dip is perfect for tomorrow's Super Bowl Sunday which is going on here in the USA.  People everywhere are flocking to the supermarkets and Wally World (aka Wal-mart) to stock up on snacks for the big game.  The good thing about this recipe is that I already had everything on hand in my fridge and pantry to make this pan of ooey-gooey deliciousness!  I had already planned to make a...

Honey Chipotle Wings with Gorgonzola Dipping Sauce

I made these Honey Chipotle Wings with Gorgonzola dipping sauce yesterday and served with my Apple, Apricot, Pecan Salad with Orange Vinaigrette and Gorgonzola crumbles.  As I promised, here is the recipe.  I made these for the first time a couple of weeks ago for the Georgia - Auburn game.  When I made them the first time, I baked them in the oven instead of frying them.  They are great either way.  They are not like most wings that are too...

Kereviz Salatası (Celery Root Salad)

  This past weekend my brother, my sister and I drove over to Atlanta to the Buford Highway Farmer's Market.  It was a dream come true for "foodies" like us.  My sister discovered it while on the internet and wanted us to go and check it out.  It is sad to say that we had to drive 2+ hours to find excellent quality produce and great international food items but it was well worth it.  They have any kind of...
