Sunset in a glass…

This pretty and refreshing cocktail is inspired by beautiful and unique Kaş sunsets hence the name… Sunset…

One forgotten blogger

How can I even call myself a blogger; I did not post for over a year… Well I posted a recipe yesterday just to check my settings and don’t have the heart to delete it to be franc… Kept very busy cooking and eating but when ever I was in front of my screen it…

METAMORPHOSIS! OR LOOSING THE BATTLE, FOOD VS DECO…

Don’t you think it is really odd that one reminds me the other… And I immediately thought of this… My favorite chair in the showroom. It is so comfortable it makes me feel safe and secure anytime I sit down with a cup of coffee chocolate whip… Coffee and chocolate whip 50 gr bitter chocolate…

WINTER IS COMING! MMMM IT SMELLS LIKE STEW!

Writing this was in…

GUILTY OF NEGLECT!!! Or “something to celebrate”…

Feeling absolutely terrible… Let my blog suffer from a horrible and lengthy neglect. Unforgivingly involved with my boyfriend’s showroom. Yes I am still cooking. Yeah and I am still travelling but nothing like normal nothing like my normal… Just continuously busy with renovation-construction party planning for “Grand” openings employing people, firing people selling furniture complementing…

TV DINNERS (better late than never I suppose..)

FRESH! FRESHER…

Anything fresher than this is still growing I think… The combination of walnut and pomegranate is amazing by the way… You must give it a try. Oh and few drops of pomegranate molasses would help to lift all the flavours… My super intelligent, over active and much beloved! dogs chewed every single lavender bush in my garden,…

ANOTHER HAPPY HOUR

MELON COMFORT 1 and half cups freshly squeezed Spanspeck or any sweet melon juice 1 shot brandy 1 shot Southern comfort juice of half a lime or quarter of a lemon ice Shake everything well and drain into chilled balloon glasses.
