Easy as Pie Apple Tart

Easy as Pie Apple Tart

Easy as Pie Apple Tart Since I had a half pound sheet of dough left from making my Gruyère Asparagus Tart, I decided to make my Easy as Pie Apple Tart.  The hardest thing about making this dessert is cutting the apples into super thin slices. Oh, and to stop eating it.  That is the really hard part. Looks Like You Were in the Kitchen All Day What I love most about this tart is that it looks so beautiful, your family...

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...

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies Fall is one of my favorite times to bake.  And since the Apple Pie I made the other day was a flop, I was in the mood for something sweet with a hint of cinnamon.  After baking two trays of these Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies, I was going to eat a couple to make sure they were tasty.  Obviously, they were delicious because a couple turned into six.   They literally melt in your mouth....

Ramadan Pidesi

Ramadan Pidesi

Ramadan Pidesi Ramadan Pidesi is a soft flat pide bread that is served for iftar (evening meal breaking the fast) and sahur (pre-dawn meal) during the month of fasting which is known as Ramadan.  I loved going to the bakery and seeing them coming out of the wood fired ovens and being stacked ready for purchase.  I still get chills thinking about when I worked at Onur Air in Turkey and on the train/dolums/bus ride home from work it would...

Kol Böreği

Beef Kol Boregi

Kol Böreği Kol Böreği is one of my favorite types of börek.  It is a Turkish dish with many variations.  There are many regional specialties as well.  The fillings can be meat, cheese, leeks, potatoes, zucchini, and eggplant to name a few.   Laz böreği is made in the Rize region and it is made with an Ottoman-style milk pudding then sprinkled with powdered sugar. One of my other favorites is Talaş Böreği.  It is cubed lamb or beef with carrots, peas,...

Manti Inspired Fresh Made Spaghetti and Meatballs

  Manti Inspired Fresh Made Spaghetti and Meatballs   First and foremost, let me say this is not Manti!!!! Manti is a delicious Turkish dish that is best made when you have plenty of helping hands around.  It could be done alone but part of the fun of making Manti is spending the time stuffing the dough with the meat mixture while you chit-chat with your family and/or friends!  The best Manti in Turkey is from the Kayseri region.  My former...

Chicken ‘n Potato Dumplings

Chicken 'n Potato Dumplings When it comes to comfort food, there are not many dishes that can compete with Chicken n' Dumplins (that's Southern for Chicken and Dumplings).  I think my recipe for Chicken 'n Potato Dumplings gives the original a run for it's money if I do say so myself.  Fluffy POTATO dumplings floating in broth with big chunks of chicken and carrots is enough to make you want to slap your momma.  You guessed it . . .  another Southern term...

Jalapeno Cheddar Scones

Jalapeno Cheddar Scones

I know it is not quite fall yet but my daughter had asked me to make a batch of chili so of course I obliged her wishes.  I really wasn't in the mood for cornbread and was trying to think of something to jazz things up a little bit.  I think these Jalapeno Cheddar Scones did the trick.  They were so light and flaky and the perfect accompaniment to my Chili.  They looked great too.  These scones are so easy...

Cranberry, Apple and Walnut Scones

Cranberry, Apple and Walnut Scones

Some of my best recipes come about when I am trying to use up tidbits in my pantry and these Cranberry, Apple and Walnut Scones are no exception.  I had a small amount of cranberries in my pantry that I needed to use up.  I also had some apples and oranges that were not getting eaten up quickly enough.  These items were the inspiration for my scones.  My cousin/sister Donna loves scones so I had already told her I was...

Quick and Easy Puffy Pita Bread

A while back, I  bought a rotisserie   attachment for my charcoal grill from Wally World for only six bucks!  I have been chomping at the bits to try it out.  Of course the first thing that came to mind is to make doner.  Doner is a Turkish dish that is meat on a spit that is cooked vertically.  I will have to make a few adjustments because the rotisserie is horizontal, but I am sure it will turn out just fine.  Anyway to try...

Oat and Sunflower Seed Yeast Loaf

I have a confession to make. . . I created my Oat and Sunflower Seed Yeast Loaf recipe to use up some sunflower seeds that I had in a jar in my spice cabinet.  Is that crazy or what?  I know the majority of my post lately have been recipes for bread but every time I reached into my spice cabinet, that little jar of sunflower seeds were taunting me, "Use us, use us!"  So this morning was as good...
