Simit



Add to Technorati Favorites
Simit is one of the foods that I miss from Turkey. Especially, the kind that is sold on the streets. I had been wanting to make it, but I knew it was time consuming so I never got around to making it. The other night, I decided to try a recipe from a blogger (Farida from AZ Cookbook) who publishes many Turkish recipes which really represent Turkish food. Although, it took me longer to make this recipe as I only worked on the dough when the twins were sleeping, so it rested longer than suggested (the dough was refrigerated overnight), it still turned out fantastic. I actually didn't believe it would taste like the simit in Turkey, but it really did. With a glass of Turkish tea, it was all I needed. It was so good that I couldn't resist the urge to take a picture and post it here. Thank you Farida!

Taking a break from blogging...



Add to Technorati Favorites
I feel that I owe my readers an explanation as to why I have been absent from posting recipes on my blog. My life has changed so much in recent months. Now, I have adorable and amazing twin boys who fill my life with more joy and keep me very busy. With a full time job and my sweet little angels, let alone to blog or cook, I barely have time to eat anymore. If I do cook, I cook the fastest meals possible and if we’re lucky we will eat before 9:00 p.m. Most of the time, we take turns to eat with my husband. I no longer have time to set up beautiful tables and enjoy a meal slowly. But, I am not complaining, it is all worth it.
 
For these reasons, I will put a hold on blogging for a while with the hope that in the future, (probably not the near future), I will come back and share more recipes. I still have so many Turkish recipes to share.  I want to thank all my readers who have been following my blog and hope that it will continue to serve as a resource for Turkish recipes.
