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 […]

Mini Corn Cakes

Mini Corn Cakes

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

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

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 […]

“Healthier” Almond Butter Chocolate Apricot Cookies

“Healthier” Almond Butter Chocolate Apricot Cookies

Recently I’ve been very interested in experimenting with different “healthier” ingredients.  For example, looking for opportunities to add almond butter, alternative flours and sweeteners such as honey instead of sugar.  These “healthier” almond butter chocolate apricot cookies are an example of how I’ve learned to […]

Turkish Cig Kofte

Turkish Cig Kofte

Well, I think it’s about time to post a Turkish recipe.  I just realized that we haven’t posted anything truly Turkish yet, how can that be!?  This Turkish cig kofte is a very common Turkish food and something that we always look forward to eating […]

Pepper Nachos

Pepper Nachos

These pepper nachos came about on a lazy Saturday afternoon while 1) trying to use up what was in the fridge and 2) desperately wanting to eat cheesy nachos but also trying to be “healthy.”  While gazing into the fridge, hoping I might find something […]

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Lately it seems like we’re in a constant cycle of traveling, having a great time and eating lots of great tasting (but not so healthy) foods, then, returning home and trying to make up for those excess meals and calories before traveling and doing it […]
