Hey! It's the end of the month and I'm totally broke again! Trying to save money sucks, but at least I can have some party food anyway! This time I've made Pizza Sticks, or if you are in Turkey, you can call them Pizza Borek. This little invention of mine is made using very very convenient store bought everything! So it's cheap, it's easy and it's fast, just my thing!
Good Points about these pies : 1) They are super cute , 2) They taste super nice 3) They are rather cheap and 4) They are super easy to make! So let's get started on our Christmas Cheesy Green Peas and Tomato Pies.
So this week I wanted to share with you an experiment I did last Sunday while trying to figure out what I wanted to cook as much as I wanted to eat. I didn't want sweets but also I didn't want a massive dish that I wouldn't be able to eat because I can't seem to be able to cook for less than 4 people that are extremely hungry. I wanted something salty that I could snack on, and that would last for around 3 days without going bad. So I remembered Brazilian Cheese Bread...
I'm back and I bring breakfast with me. If you never traveled to Turkey you are missing their amazing BREAKFAST. I can easily and surely say that, for me, this is the best Turkish culinary treat.
This time I baked tuna, red pepper and cheese mini quiches and they were SUPER DELICIOUS!
So I found myself in a bit of a planning/cooking madness last week and that turned into a weekend of baking to test frosting and cupcake recipes and all that jazz. Result: 36 cupcakes on the table!
Everyone has those days that you want to eat cozy home made food but you really don't want to be chopping and stirring for an hour. So this is what I do : Creamy Mushroom Pasta. I must say it's not the healthiest recipe of all time, but when you have your lazy mode on, who cares?
So the cold has set in and that makes it ok to drink more wine and eat more cheese. Sorry that's the truth. For this same reason I ended up cooking this cheese appetizer twice this past week. Yes I have a thing with calories too, deal with it. It's the best thing ever, really. You can make it in around 30 minutes, no hassle and really not that much dirty dishes. You can pick on it while sitting in your couch with your friends and be warm and happy. Goes well with red wine, off course.
Winter has come and my nose decides it's the official time to be runny and disgusting! Omg super cool ! Ok I'll stop with the sarcasm. I'm sick for like a week now and it's super boring. And what's not boring you ask? Is that it gives me an excuse to cook up some soup!
It was one of those days that I really wanted some salty and tasty guilty pleasure style of a treat and I had nothing on the fridge, as usual. I also had people coming over, didn't want to spend a butt load of money or had that much time to cook for that matter. So I came up with this recipe.
