First I have thought this cookies wouldn't baked nicely because there were too many problems while I was making it. First I forgot to add flour!! Can you believe I didn't add flour into a cookie :)) Yea I did... After I noticed it's liquid and added flour back and shape them again; while I was baking it first I forgot to open the oven :)) Anyhow it ended great... :)) I got this recipe from Turkish Cookbook.

I know it s been long time far from you but my dad had another operation; doctors said even it is a miracle that he is alive. We thank God for that. We stayed long time at hospital; thanks to my all friends and relatives who support us during bad times. I saw real friendship and also fake friends. Anyway now the most important thing is my dad is at home and he is able to eat anything so I made bulghur balls
for today evening which my family love too much. It is easy to make and very tasty.

Last Friday, I joined a very nice cooking event. First time I cooked out of my kitchen and with other people. It was such fun. The people who didn't cook brought some desserts or drinks. I prepared the table on the terrace, the weather was lovely, so everything was perfect...

This dish originally cooked with ground meat and called "lahmacun", this is the version with cheese, in turkish cheese mean "peynir" so we call this "peymacun" :)
The size is normally bigger, I wanted to make it smaller, it's a nice appetizer, mine is a bit crispy, the way I liked it, if you don't like crispy, you can add a bit water in the cheese mixture or maybe chopped tomato, with tomato juice it'd be softer.
This is today's breakfast meal, I love it, easy to cook and delicious. This is the most popular egg dish in Turkey.

The Sherbet is very important in our culture, at the past we were not serving the raw water to our guests, they were adding some lemon or mint or something. Everything was a chance to make sherbet.
This one is one of that I love, and good chance to drink before summer goes away.
I like the sour taste of cornelian cherry.
A delicious salad which takes the name from a mountain in Turkey.
It is great accompany especially for kebab and meat dishes.

It is another nice recipe from Bodrum. I have been there recently, it is very nice coast city which is famous with White houses without roof. Nice weather, nice beach, night life, everything is there.
Cokertme is the name of a village in Bodrum and this kebab is specially there.
In some places I ate with fillet meat, and some others with Kofte (burger), I like burger more so I cooked that way.

Eid Mubarek to all. The Holy Ramadan ended yesterday and today is the first day of Bayram(Eid). Whole month we fasted, stayed away from bad things :) now time to celebrate it. Everybody is out to visit relatives & friends, the children knocking our door for chocolate :) Due to my dad's sickness we will spend the holiday at home, but we have too many guests so I made something to serve for them.
I am not a dessert & baklava person, so fruit cake is the best for me which is light and sweet :)

I know it is been a long time since I wrote but I had some reasonable excuses.
My dad suffered a big operation, stayed many weeks at the hospital. While we were thinking he was recovering, there were some complications, thank GOD he is better now, at home.
Hard times also good to understand your real friends, some of friends made me disappointed, some other made me surprised and felt they are more closer to me than I thought before.
Anyway this is life, all the bad and good things are for us. The most important thing is we are healthy now and I'm back with a nice recipe. :)
I tried this at a restaurant by a friend recommendation, and I didn't feel regret at all!!! It is amazing, delicious, called Bodrum mantı, as far as I learnt, it is cooked in Bodrum, which is a port city in the southwestern Aegean Region of Turkey.

I know, I know, again it's been long time that I haven't wrote, but the blogspot was restricted in Turkey and I was in a diet, by the way, I lost 4 kg :)) If I have kept cooking, I wouldn't be able to lose weight, I need to lose still 4 kg more but I cant do long months diet.
Today is Sunday, I am at home, lazy and I was watching a TV channel which is showing traditional turkish foods, I saw it there and wanted to try, I presumed it would be amazing, and yes! it is great, easy to do and tasty. Çiğ mean raw, the original çiğ köfte is made by raw meat, it's not cooked, the meat cook with kneading by a lot of hot pepper, long hours it need to be kneaded with hot. This is alternative veggie, more healthy and same tasty recipe from Antakya, a city in Turkey, near Syria border.

I know it is been long time but I was so moody and didn't feel to cook or do anything else, but I am back to life. :)
There are too many recipes in my inbox and please forgive me that I don't think I will be able to read all, they are more than 5000. :)
I had this dessert in Dubai and loved it, easy to make, tasty and light dessert which I like.
By the way, Om Ali means "mum of Ali" :)
