Cauliflower Fritters- "MSHAT"

Cauliflower is available year around, but is especially plentiful in spring and fall. This veggie is a member of the cabbage family and the name cauliflower means "cabbage flower".


Raw and cooked cauliflower is a good source of protein, Magnesium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, and foliate. Cauliflower contains important substances that may reduce your risk of some types of cancer.


Cauliflower fritters, MSHAT, are just another way to enjoy this delicious, flavor delicate veggie, and maybe a good way to feed your children veggies if they are not so fond of them. After all, everybody just loves fried food, although is not so good for us.

Brain and heart food- FISH DISH

Eating fish twice a week is highly recommended because fish are a great source of protein, vitamins, and nutrients. Fish are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which provide protection from heart disease and are great brain food. So eat fish and get stronger, wiser, and helthier ^_- !

NUTTY CAKE

Who doesn't love nuts, any nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, almonds? They are delicious just as they are, they are inviting if roasted and salted or even spiced. And when you put them into a cake they are just oh so good!


Fruity cakes are light and feel good and refreshing on long, hot summer days, but now that the cold days are more and more frequent it feels just right to make a more heavy kind of cake, like one filled with nuts.

CRUNCHY SPICY CHICKEN FINGERS

While the shell is crunchy and spicy, the chicken hiding inside is moist and full of wonderful flavors.

Although the kid's favorite side dish for fried chicken are fried potatoes and ketchup, I serve my crunchy spicy chicken fingers with a side of mash potatoes and mushrooms in tomato sauce.

Eating in or out dillema II

Home cooking always pays off, but when there is a special occasion knocking on your door, eating out is definitely the perfect choice. Home sweet home, yes, but that magic ambiance can be sometimes conjured only outside your well known environment.



Anatolia is a Turkish restaurant in Nashville, TN with such an ambiance. Soft Turkish music in the background, Turkish folklore decor on the walls, excellent menu, and even better service.


On the menu there is something for every taste: unique appetizers, soups, from the grill, classical home Turkish cooking, and delicious desserts.

Quick dessert- BLUEBERRY-APPLE COBBLER

It's Sunday afternoon and I have nothing sweet to serve  my loved ones. I have a can of blueberry pie filling in the pantry and if  I mix it with some apples and spice is up with some cinnamon, I can put together a pretty mean cobbler. Yum!
