Tahini Roll – the divine combination of tahini and dough

Did you know that if you mix tahini and molasses, you get a fluid and deadly sweet & gorgeous dessert? You can just dip your bread in it and bamm! You would probably get less sweet if you actually inject sugar in your veins… And my mother used to just spoon this whole thing, without making the sweet taste even a bit milder with the help of bread.. I’m hoping she stopped doing that (since she is 72 years old with a weight problem…). Ok but that was not the thing I was going to talk about!

Shortbread Cookies – Turkish version

A friend of mine sent me a text message two weeks ago: Hi dear, one of my students (she gives private Turkish courses) discovered your blog and baked “simit”. She said that she loved the blog and that the recipes were so easy to understand. I told her that I would tell you immediately, to make you happy. And yes, I WAS happy!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chips

This autumn is definitely the one that I got to learn so many new uses of pumpkin. I somehow cannot remember much, but I guess the only thing I knew about it before was the traditional Turkish pumpkin dessert, that’s all (by the way, it is one of my favourite desserts in the whole world!).
