For our anniversary I surprised my hubby with homemade manti….see I have always made them with wonton wraps… I was terribly intimated by making them from scratch…wonton wraps are just easier and take less time…but after making the dough , its not as bad as I thought! Sure its extra effort but well worth it…will be making manti like this from now on!:) Continue reading “Homemade Manti” »
Lemon Meringue Pie is my husbands favourite pie, it was the first pie I ever made! Today was our anniversary and I wanted to surprise my hubby with this pie! I only made lemon pie filling from scratch a few times and many years ago….I always relied on Shirrif filling.

Imam bayildi literally means ‘the Imam fainted’ there are few folklore stories that are about this. The story I grew up with was when this man the Imam, first tried this dish he fainted as it was so good!
This is my daughters favourite dish, my husband loves it too. This time it was extra special as all the veggies used in this dish came from my garden! Including my homemade-tomato-sauce (I used 1 bag for this recipe). You can fry the eggplant, or bake them which ever you prefer. Continue reading “Layered Imam Bayildi with Meat” »
These muffins are moist and delicious! The added Nutella makes them extra special. I make them with olive oil, Omega-3 organic milk, Omega-3 organic eggs, & walnuts. The potassium from the banana’s will give you energy, plus all that Omega will make you happy;) If you like you can add other nuts or flax seeds in the batter as well.
