I’m really excited to share this recipe with you today. I spent a few hours fiddling in the kitchen to make this dessert for FH, and I’m absolutely thrilled with how it turned out.

A flourless Nutella mug cake. It sounds as good as the name. It’s super easy to put together. Just five ingredients. A little stir. Microwave for less than 2 minutes. And you’re treated to a decadent, moist, flourless Nutella cake.

I was supposed to meet up with a few friends at Sultan Kebab and Baklava but our meet up got postponed. All the arranging made me realize I haven’t posted about my visit here from back in October. Oops. My first visit can be found here.

Sultan is a Turkish restaurant specializing in kebabs and baklava. We loved our first visit and wanted to try much more on our return.

I ordered a cup of the complimentary Turkish tea which I really like. It’s strong but with sweet overtones.

Then we ordered some appetizers. I think it’s best to get a small order of several of these appetizers so that they can make a combination plate for you. There was some mix up with our order, a new server they were training, so we ended up getting full size orders of each of the appetizers we requested, rather than smaller amounts.

Antepezme (onion, hot pepper, tomato, chili powder)


I really love the hummus here. It has a very strong olive oil flavor. I could easily eat this every day.

Saksuka (potato, zucchini, eggplant, sweet pepper and tomatoes)

The appetizers are accompanied by their fresh baked lavas bread, a very thin, chewy bread, which you can use to scoop up the different pastes.

Happy Valentine’s Day! While Valentine’s Day is usually celebrated with a lot of chocolate and flowers, I thought I’d share this savory dish as a possible choice for your loved one.

Soft boiled egg covered in a crispy bacon breadcrumb. Yummy.
