I love using ingredients that are left from previous recipes and not needing to buy anything else from the shop. Somehow it makes me feel more, sort of, “accomplished”.
When I first started baking, I actually asked this question to myself as: “Why THE HELL do we use salt in a dessert recipe??!”
I am an avid tea drinker but I am not really a fan of green tea. Yet one day, I was again lost in the world of recipes on the internet, getting excited with many things to try, and then I saw this ingredient: green tea powder, which you can use to make cakes, cookies, pastries… That was it – I had to try green tea powder!
I was born in Sinop, in Northern Turkey, in Black Sea Region. That is the region where hazelnut cultivation is the highest amount in Turkey. And Turkey has the largest hazelnut production in the world. Maybe because of this, maybe just by chance, my favourite nut was always hazelnut… That was until I met pecan….!
I am not really a jam person. I think I was, at some point when I was a child. I liked eating my mother’s delicious strawberry jam. But that was it. I guess the way I like eating jam the most in the recent years is with sausage. Yes, you read it correct, I like dipping sausage into jam, so sue me!
