If you love scones, this recipe is for you. It’s pretty much a giant chocolate chip cookie with the texture of a scone. And, unlike your typical coffeehouse scone, they will keep very well for days on the counter. Or freeze them if you must and enjoy them for weeks on end.   Chocolate Chip […]

Sugar Donuts

November 7th, 2014 | Bread, Breakfast, Desserts, Pastry, Vegetarian | Christi | No Comments

There are so many different kinds of fancy-pants donuts now… Cronuts, blueberry, bacon donuts! And in every color and flavor imaginable. This is not that kind of donut. This is the nostalgic, simple, raised-with-yeast donuts that are covered with a light coating of sugar. Heavenly. Things to watch out for while making these. I would […]

Zucchini Muffins

November 2nd, 2014 | Breakfast, Desserts, Featured, Pastry, Quickbread, Vegetarian | Christi | 1 Comment

We all know sweets are an indulgence, and definitely not health food. Sometimes, though, they can be straddling the line. Well, maybe that’s giving these muffins a little too much credit, but hey, they’re tasty. Shredded zucchini makes an appearance throughout the muffin without overpowering them.

French Almond Yogurt Cake

This almond yogurt cake is super moist, with a nutty crumb from the ground almonds. I’m a huge fan of using yogurt in cakes to keep them from drying out. This cake will keep perfectly for a week or so in the fridge. If it makes it that far. Forks up! French Almond Yogurt Cake […]

Feta and Parsley Rolled Pastry (Cigarette Borek)

January 10th, 2014 | Breakfast, Mediterranean, Turkish, Vegetarian | Christi | No Comments

Sigara boregi is a Turkish cigarette- shaped pastry made with feta cheese and phyllo dough. This savory pastry is perfect with coffee, but can be eaten as an appetizer or side dish. I like to eat them for breakfast. These are seriously addicting. If you can find fresh or packaged Yufka, that’s the way to […]

Eggs Benedict is not a small feat, especially when it’s just so much easier to toast up some Poptarts in the morning. For that ┬áspecial occasion or a nice Sunday brunch, it is an impressive dish. Make it the poached eggs ahead of time, keep it in cold water, and warm it up slightly in […]

Cinnamon Crumb Coffeecake

Sometimes I like to talk. Alot. I have to hold myself back from yapping the other person to death. Of course, there are other times where I love to embrace the silence. A nice book, an evening walk, or maybe even a weekend brunch filled with brown sugar and cinnamon- in the form of these […]

Turkish Yeast Bread

Weekends mean brunch. A good Turkish brunch always involves bread. And also cheese, sometimes three kinds. This bread combines a rich yeast bread with melty mozzarella topping. Now that I think about it, these would be stellar with a nice stew for dinner. Turkish Yeast Bread 2 cups milk 250 g margarine 1 tsp sugar […]

Acma (Rich Turkish Rolls)

May 10th, 2011 | Bread, Breakfast, Turkish, Vegetarian | Christi | 1 Comment

As much as Asian countries’ cuisine is based on rice products, food culture in Turkey is largely based on bread. So much so that without bread, according to my dear hubby, a family meal cannot commence. Rather than eat bread-less, a member of the family will be sent immediately to procure some. In fact, most […]
