Chocolate Red Wine Cupcakes with Turkish Cherry Frosting

Chocolate Red Wine Cupcakes with Turkish Cherry Frosting

Baking, and let’s be honest, eating baked goods, is truly something I love to do. Whether it’s a potluck lunch at work or dinner at a friend’s house, I’m always more than thrilled to volunteer to bring dessert.  So, when our friends invited us to stay with them […]

Baklava Cups

Baklava Cups

During our trip to Turkey, one of the treats we enjoyed the most was baklava.  It can be found in any Turkish bakery and is offered as a dessert option at almost any restaurant.  We’re no strangers to baklava in America, pretty much everyone is […]

Apple Ginger Cake

Apple Ginger Cake

‘Tis the season for baked goods galore.  I’ve noticed the recipes I’ve been wanting to post are less about “healthy” treats and smoothie bowls and much more about cakes and brownies.  I hope that is ok with you all!  I’m excited to share this Apple […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies

You know who the best types of friends are?  Friends who bake for you are the best types of friends!  We’re lucky to have one friend in particular who bakes croissants for us, yes, croissants!  Her fresh croissants are so warm and buttery and perfect, […]

Veggie Loaded Beef Stew

Veggie Loaded Beef Stew

It took awhile, but it’s finally starting to feel like Fall in the DC area.  Part of the reason I love this area is because of how long it stays warm, but I guess we can only fight mother nature for so long.  Now we […]

What is it about the cooler weather that has me instantly craving carbs!?  I mean, to be honest, I always crave carbs, but there is something about a cool Fall day that just makes me want to eat something bready with everything.  Maybe it’s the […]

Gozleme (Turkish Phyllo Pancakes)

Gozleme (Turkish Phyllo Pancakes)

It’s been about two weeks since we’ve returned from our trip to Turkey, and boy am I missing the food!  I miss the morning breakfast spreads of olives, tomatoes and fresh bread.  I miss the lunches and dinners full of spicy lamb meals, and of […]

Apple Cider Donuts

Apple Cider Donuts

Yes, it’s Fall.  Everyone is excited about pumpkin flavored everything, cozy sweaters and apple picking.  I feel like it’s against some unwritten blogger rule to say this, but I’m not a big fan of Fall.  I much prefer warm weather, long days and Summer dresses.  When […]

Trip to Turkey

Trip to Turkey

Mehmet and I just returned from our wonderful trip to Turkey.  While I had planned/hoped to have plenty of blog posts ready and scheduled to publish while we were gone, unfortunately that was not the case.  And I figured of course I would have a […]

Veggie Wontons with Sriracha Honey Sauce

Veggie Wontons with Sriracha Honey Sauce

Ah, so we leave for a long trip to Turkey tomorrow to visit Mehmet’s family.  I had such grand intentions of writing a bunch of posts and scheduling them to publish while we’re away.  I really wanted this blog to stay up to date while […]

Chocolate Almond Butter Truffles

Chocolate Almond Butter Truffles

Lately I’ve been posting quite often about how we’re trying eat healthier in between our many Summer trips.  This has become more and more of a regular trend for us lately.  Last weekend we were in Asheville, NC for a wedding.  We enjoyed more than our fair […]
