Hello everyone! I know I haven't updated my blog for a long time. There have been several changes in my life and it has been a hectic summer. My adventures in America that started in Orlando will now be continuing in Gainesville. Yes, due to changes in my husband's work, two weeks ago we said goodbye to Orlando. I am sorry that int he midst of moving and settling in I've neglected my blog. I'm returning to blogging with a bit time-consuming, but delightful traditional Turkish dish...MANTI :) I hope you'll try it, you won't regret it! Its delicious taste is worth the time and effort you will invest in making it.
