Gruyère Asparagus Tart

Gruyere Asparagus Tart

  Gruyère Asparagus Tart Have you ever tried to make homemade puff pastry?  While it is not difficult to make, it is time-consuming because you have to chill the dough between each rolling.  When I made it, I used a Martha Stewart recipe which can be found here.  I adapted Martha's recipe for Asparagus Gruyère Tart when I made my Gruyère Asparagus Tart recipe. Fresh From the Garden Asparagus I made this tart for our Easter dinner this year and it was...

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...

Fajita Sliders

Fajita Sliders

Fajita Sliders Hosting a football party or tailgating this weekend?  Do I have the recipe for you?  My Fajita Sliders recipe will take your get together to the next level.  These sliders are the ultimate finger food.  Who knew you could pack this much flavor in such a small package! Expecting a big crowd?  I suggest you double the recipe! Of course if you want to go all out, make a batch of my Honey Chipotle Wings with Gorgonzola Dipping Sauce.  Personally, I think...

Eggplant Lasagna

Eggplant Lasagna

Eggplant Lasagna When I am in the mood for comfort food, I can't think of anything more satisfying than Eggplant Lasagna.  Cutting into layers of  tender pasta, gooey melted cheese, eggplant, tomato sauce, more cheese. . . Ummmm. Making my own mouth water. 🙂  The thing about a good Lasagna is letting it sit for a few minutes after removing it from the oven so it can firm up.  Who can ever wait though?  When I make Lasagna, we are...

Chickpea Orzo Salad

Chickpea Orzo Salad

Chickpea Orzo Salad Something about salad just makes me think summer.  This Chickpea Orzo Salad is no exception.  It literally screams summer.  The crunchy cucumbers and sweet grape tomatoes make this salad really refreshing.  This salad would be a great light lunch or side to grilled meats.  And if you are looking for a dish to take along to any summer cook-outs you may be going to this summer, you definitely need to make this and take it along.  Your vegetarian...

Creamy Manchego Rose Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta

Creamy Manchego Rose Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta I love pasta.  Not just a little, but, really, really, really love pasta.  I could eat it everyday.  With meat, without meat, tomato sauce, cream sauce or both sauce (rose)! Creamy Manchego Rose Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta which combines both tomato and cream to make this gorgeous rose sauce is one of my favorites.  Whenever I ask my daughter what she would like for dinner, she almost always says "Ooh, Mom, can...

Penne Pasta with Makdous, Tomato and Feta

  My friend Rania recently showed me how she makes Makdous, which is eggplant cured in olive oil and that is the inspiration for my newest pasta recipe, Penne Pasta with Makdous, Tomato and Feta .  Making Makdous is a pretty tedious process and I will make a post on that later.  I will quickly tell you how it is made.  We started by preparing the eggplant.  This is just removing the stems. We then boiled the eggplant briefly.  Next, we salted...

Shrimp and Mushroom Angel Hair Pasta Alfredo

I owe the creation of my Shrimp and Mushroom Angel Hair Pasta Alfredo Recipe to my daughter, Stella.  We were talking the other day and she said she was really wanting some creamy pasta with shrimp.  I was going with my sister to Birmingham for her doctor's appointment so I thought I would go by Restaurant Depot and pick up some shrimp.  Unfortunately, the only wild caught shrimp they had out was a 5 pound bag of frozen shrimp that...

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...

Sigara Böreği 'Cigarette Börek'

  Last week when I went to Atlanta with my daughter to the AWA (Anime Week Atlanta) Convention, I spent some of my time checking out the wonderful Turkish Bakkal in Sandy Springs.  In Turkey, a bakkal is a little neighborhood store where you can buy many household essentials.  This one was just a few miles up the interstate from where we were staying and extremely easy to find.  The service was excellent and if you live in this area,...

Ispanaklı Su Böreği or Water Borek with Spinach

    Borek is so versatile and there are so many ways to make it.  Fried, oven baked, and water are just a few types of borek.  White cheese, spinach, ground beef, leeks, potato and zucchini are just a few ingredients that can be used.  Today I would like to share with you my Ispanaklı Su Böreği recipe.  Su Böreği or Water Borek is one of the most commonly made borek's and it is a wonderful Turkish comfort food.  It...
