Menemen – Turkish Egg Scramble

When in Turkey, or raised in a Turkish household, this is a staple breakfast food. It was one of my favourites growing up, and I finally decided to make it myself 🙂 The combination of lightly scrambled eggs in a yummy tomato, pepper, onion and garlic sauce is pure Heaven. Dunking toast into it, is the best part too…omnomnom. I made mine the way my Mom makes it, but the recipe below, is a great guide – if you want to give it a try!!

Crock Pot Black Beans and Rice Soup

I made this soup, a couple week’s back, before Thanksgiving. I basically followed this recipe, but I passed on the Tabasco sauce, and added cayenne pepper instead…it was SPICY!! Just how we like it 😀 It was really good, and it’s a great go-to, one pot soup to make.

Fruit Salad

A while back I had a bunch of fruit, that was very ripe, so I decided to turn them into a fruit salad. I searched around for a recipe, and came across the one below. The fruits I used were different, since at the time I had, apples, peaches, pears and plums. But how the recipe is made, is what I took from it (as well as adding a touch of honey), and it turned out really good!! Will definitely make it again, especially since, any fruit combination works.

Banana-Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Was perusing lower sodium recipes, and came across these, on a list from Health.com. They turned out all right, and are pretty tasty. Not the HUGEST fan of banana in my cookies, but the dark chocolate chips I used, more then make up for it!!
