Guacamole is probably the most requested recipe that I get ask for from my friends, been making it for years and shared it on my FB group years ago…for some reason I never made a post about it on the blog! It’s definitely blog worthy, so what took me so long to post it! Well the wait is over…here it is:)
Nothing brings back childhood memories like the taste of petulla! Excitingly waiting for my mom to finish making them so we can gobble them up!
These are traditional Albanian treats, passed down by generation….every family has their own recipes and how to make them….I may be biased here but I think my moms are the best;)
My Grandfather liked them sweet, with sugar or honey, my Grandmother likes them with feta. I like them both ways, but I add cinnamon to my sugar;)
These don’t last long in our house! They are so yummy, crunchy and sweet! Perfect for gifts as well, add some in candy bags (such as wiltons candy bags) , print out the recipe and add to the tie to close the bag with, place them in a gift bag or in a small Chinese take out box that they sell at Bulk barn makes for a pretty presentation. Add one bag of salty and a bag of sweet! Teachers, neighbors, friends will love it!
I came across this recipe years ago while visiting a friend of mine Hatice. She shared her mom’s recipe with me, the only problem was that the recipe was in Turkish measurements. It took about four times till I got it right, and converted it to American measurements. My daughter Dina always makes this, as its her favourite! She made this one that is in the photographs, so proud of her!:)
It’s really simple and easy to make, using simple ingredients.
I set the table for breakfast , some traditional and non tradition foods, and of course because its a celebration breakfast, you must have dessert!
I cleaned out the seeds and separated them from the flesh of the pumpkin, I clean them by giving them a rinse. I then let it soak for 10 mins in salted water. I then drain and dry with paper towel. I heat the oven to 375 and grease a cookie sheet, lay the seeds and sprinkle with kosher salt. bake in oven for approx 20 mins till seeds get dry and crisp.
Ever wonder what to do with your left over mash potatoes? I got the perfect thing for you! Tuna Patties!
