Lemon Blueberry Skillet Cake

Today marks my first full week of being home with the baby on maternity leave alone and Selim's first week being back at work. I'm learning that neither is easy. Selim has to get up early, after having frequently interrupted sleep all night, go to work all day, and be separated from this little baby... Continue Reading →

Southern Baklava

Selim's father is one of our most loyal blog readers. He's been telling us for years that we should try a twist on the traditional baklava that we usually make. Our baklava recipe is a fairly traditional Turkish one and incorporates tips from him. But he's been suggesting that we try to make a Southern twist... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats

Shout out to all the moms out there who have their kids duped into thinking the Rice Krispie treats they make them are such labors of love. (I'm trying to be you one day!) Best joke ever - Rice Krispie treats certainly are delicious, but SO EASY to make! (Don't worry if you were fooled;... Continue Reading →

Cypriot Carnival Bourekia

Happy Mardi Gras (Carnival, Shrove Tuesday, etc)! Here in the US, we associate Mardi Gras with New Orleans' celebrations alone. But this week I reminded myself that not everyone celebrates with beads, King Cake, Cajun food, and exposed breasts. So I looked into worldwide traditions, with the hopes of picking a different dish to make... Continue Reading →

Apple Cinnamon Galette

It's well documented on this blog (and if you know me in real life...) that I don't like/am mildly terrified of baking. But every fall, like clockwork, I feel the need to bake something with apples in it. It's a personal rite of fall passage, along with my need to decorate with tiny gourds, take... Continue Reading →

Lemon-Lime Ricotta Cookies

This is our last batch of end-of-the-rotation thank you treats. Why? Because this week we are completing our LAST clinical rotation!! We graduate in almost exactly ONE MONTH, on May 11th! We're really looking forward to be gainfully employed adults again. But don't worry, we have one more delicious treat for this last month. These... Continue Reading →

Reese’s Pieces Bars

It's that time of the month again... end of the month treats! If it weren't for end of the month/end of a rotation treats, this blog would pretty much never have any dessert or baked goods on it. [Check out some of our previous end of the month treats, like... Strawberry Streusel Bars, Mint Chocolate Bars,... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Rugelach

We may have mentioned it once or twice, or a million times, but Selim definitely has the sweet tooth in this family. I could eat chips & dip for the rest of my life, but Selim could easily subsist on sweets, especially chocolate! We like to joke that he has a separate dessert stomach. It's... Continue Reading →

Dinner Rolls

At every family meal we have on my maternal side of the family, everyone gets really excited when they find out that my Aunt Bobbie has made the rolls or bread. She's famous in the family for delicious, fluffy, homemade rolls and bread. At this most recent Thanksgiving, when she was slicing bread to place... Continue Reading →

Sweet & Salty Snack Mix

It's that time of the month again where we make treats for the staff of the hospital before we move on to our next rotation next month. I think the fact that we like to make these treats for our teachers of the month may be solely responsible for ensuring that we actually make and... Continue Reading →
