IMG_3558There are many things that I’ve been impressed upon first sight and touch (besides Lindt chocolates); and neither baking nor anything else in the kitchen was one of them until a couple of months ago. The highlighting moment that made up my faith in the kitchen was definitely the split second that took me back to my childhood years spent the German kindergarten (nursery). Sticky dough between the fingers and on the palms of both hands, crazy for some more flour; leading to a rise in serotonin levels due to the imagination of the “Weckmanchen” bites in your mouth that make you feel like a pig in clover. How can I not mention the “Lebkuchen” cookies while I am conscious that there are fewer things that can push me into the absolute “carpe diem” mode when having a box of” Lebkuchen” just for myself? Most pleasant time traveling back to the Christmas fairs that spread the smell of freshly baked gingerbread and honey scent cookies that imitated the Lebkuchen biscuits. Besides my strongest memories, my newborn passions for baking and imaginative production of sweet tastes are rooted in the smell, scent and peaceful spirit that surrendered my soul. Not even a tiny bite (!), the tiniest glance is more than enough to confirm the unforgettable beauty of Turkish baklava or Un kurabiyesi (Turkish shortbread). But more important are the memories that stick a firm and irreversible, and long-lasting smile on your face while sharing the glorious moments with mates with whom you can afford to be a peckish and greedy kid (!) again. For some, this may be the first blessing from heaven hence welcome to rosekitchen. May this blog and every experience and pearl of wisdom that comes alongside it curl your lips into eternal smiles.  

Tatlinin her türüne-sütlü, sütsüz, kremali,vanilyali yada cikolatali demeden müptelayiz biz ailecek. Fakat kardesimle mini hanemizde gayri-i ihtiyari ipin ucunu kacirmamizla birlikte, ögrenciligin getirdigi masum bahane üretme kapasitemize düsürerek; sinav bitimi, ödev teslim gunu, hafta sonu baslangici gibi bütün Tatli miknatisligimizi kenara koyduk ve resmi cay gunu ilan ettik. Bizim evde devrimin ta kendisiydi. Fakat getririleri muhtesem oldu! Bir kere daha özel olsun diye, el emegi icinde olsun istedim. Ev yapimi olsun, firindaki taze kekin kokusu buram buram odalarimiza yayilsin, tüm ölmeye yuz tutmus hücrelerimizi apoptosis kavsagindan geri cevririp yeniden diriltsin. Derken, aylar sonra kendimi yeni tarifler denerken, ordan burdan buldugum tarifler uzerinde oynayip yeni lezzetler kesfederken buldum. Vel hasili kelam, ben gibi mutfakta esasen hic birsey anlamayan kiz, nasil olduysa bu isten muthis keyif almaya basladim. Simdide burdan ogrendiklerimi, denediklerimi ve umarim sadece arada bir beceremediklerimi paylasmak istiyorum.
