French Toast Waffles

French Toast Waffles

As you may know from my previous posts, French toast is a childhood favourite of mine. My mom would even make it for me for dinner, that is how much I loved it! It is simple to make using regular bread, and eggs. This French toast waffle is even better than the original…is that possible? Yes it is, and you must try it out yourself!  Continue reading “French Toast Waffles” »

Funfetti Waffles

Funfetti Waffles

We love waffles, probably as much as we love pancakes. I have tried many different recipes since I first got my waffle maker. Some were disappointing and others were great!  The first waffle recipe that I really liked was from Lynnette mooreorlesscooking, it was crispy and delicious.  I noticed though no matter the recipe, eventually waffles do get a little soggy if left out and not eaten right away. What I started to do is after cooking them all, I add them back to the waffle maker and allow them to crisp up before serving, on days where everyone isn’t coming in the kitchen and grabbing their waffle!  Continue reading “Funfetti Waffles” »

Sriracha Yogurt Marinated Chicken

Sriracha Yogurt Marinated Chicken

Marinating chicken or meat with yogurt tenderizes and makes your meat or chicken moist, been doing it for years, what I haven’t done till now was add sriracha. Oh boy have I been missing out! I am a little late on joining the sriracha train, but I am here now and am loving it! I add it to mayo, stir fry, marinades, it’s full of flavour and adds a little heat.  Continue reading “Sriracha Yogurt Marinated Chicken” »

Two of my favourite childhood sweets in one, Turkish delight marshmallows! My grandfather Haxhi was a lokum expert, he would make a huge pan of them, they were soft, gooey and delicious.

Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake

A few weeks ago I made this cake, on a night when I was to bring dessert to a friends house, of all things to happen I forgot to add sugar! I was thinking why isn’t this cake rising, and then it hit me! After it cooled, I tasted it and thought now what? I did manage to save it, I had some icing and I broke the cake up and made them into cake balls! They turned out fantastic, I would have much rather it turned out right the first time, but it was a good save! Continue reading “Lemon Cake” »

Broccoli and Spinach Pizza

Broccoli and Spinach Pizza

This a delicious, different kind of pizza filled with veggies and cheese. They have something similar to this at the middle eastern bakery in town, they are called spinach pies or hand pies in some bakeries they make them with broccoli. I have a recipe for that as well on the blog. I like to make it like this, reminds me of lakror Albanian style pizza.

My daughter Dina loves this as do I, hope you try it and like as much as we do!  Continue reading “Broccoli and Spinach Pizza” »

One of my favourite cakes to make when guests come over is coffee cake, it fills the house with a lovely scent of cinnamon. Every time someone visits they tell me how cozy my house is, I wonder if it’s the house or the aroma coming from the kitchen.  Continue reading “Apple Crumb Coffee Cake” »
