Cherry Clafoutis

It is Summer time and that means many fruits are in season! The good thing for us consumers is that prices drop and we can save tens to hundred of dollars on certain groceries. It’s axiomatic to say that cherries are quite expensive. The average price is about […]

Tomato Cheddar Biscuits

Some people may find biscuit-making onerous because it takes quite the effort to cut cold butter into the dough, but what if I told you  you can actually make biscuits without butter! Sounds off and improper but these biscuits are scrumptious and a bit different from regular biscuits. […]

Seaside in Winter: Aegean Sea

Today, the sun made a rare occurrence in Turkey’s skies as it peeped behind grey, stratus clouds. Understandably, people set foot outside of their rooms, cameras around their necks and phones in one hand, eager to snap photos of the sun and sky, which resembled an orb against […]
