I'm a happily married mother of two teenagers. I've always loved trying new foods and out of that grew my interest in cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always on the lookout for healthy mealtime choices for my teens and diabetic husband.
My cooking triumphs
I'm happy to admit that my Turkish cooking rivals anyone born here. I make fantastic stuffed eggplants, summer squashes and grape leaves as well as red lentil soup and a variety of mezeler (appetizers).
My cooking tragedies
Lessons I have learned: 1. Don't take the lid off while the blender is running 2. Don't forget to check that the top of the ketchup bottle is on tightly if you swing it around the room 3. Don't add a spoonful of flour to thicken if you don't want a 'chunky' sauce.
