Sultan Kebab and Baklava


Sultan has been on my to-do list ever since I read several delicious posts on mmm-yoso. Unfortunately, some of my family members aren’t quite as adventurous when exploring other ethnic cuisines.

This past weekend, the siblings were off on a trip to Sin City, so FH and I took the opportunity to check out Sultan, a Turkish restaurant specializing in Kebabs and Baklava. We invited along our friend Steve, who is always up for trying anything.

Three Ingredient Sponge Cake


I love sponge cakes and I love easy recipes. So when I saw a three ingredient sponge cake, I immediately was intrigued.

 

The recipe is easy to put together and it only takes a few minutes to bake. I thought it was too good to be true, but the out come was a simple, soft, spongy cake. It isn’t overly sweet, which is how I prefer my sponge cakes.

Bacon caramel brownies

So those amazing delicious fudgy salted caramel brownies (also known as Baked Explorations’ Sweet and Salty Brownies) didn’t last long. With the kids away, I might have eaten most of them..

And even as I was eating that last batch, I immediately knew what I wanted to make next: a bacon version. The idea comes courtesy of my fellow SD blogger, Three Dog Kitchen. Her version is even better than the ones I had time to make because she studded her brownies with cocoa bacon. I definitely want to try that next time, but I simply didn’t have enough time with these.
