Chicken Stuffed Peppers

So that day we had chicken stuffed peppers with our bulgur pilaf and they were OH-SO-GOOD. I personally don’t like traditional eastern type of stuffed peppers because they are mostly filled with rice therefore they are really dense. Here is my version of stuffed peppers that I made for the first time, I’m thinking of more diverse ingredients to use next time I’m making these babies!

Stuffed peppers with bulgur pilaf

We loved the bubbly mozzarella on top and juicy chicken inside the pepper, such a great combination in total.

Summer Berry Tart

It’s not easy to find blueberries and raspberries in the Middle east, so when I saw blueberries and raspberries for an acceptable price in a supermarket in Istanbul, I got so excited and bought some! And then we were thinking whether we should make a blueberry pie or a mixed berry tart, and well it was so hot that day and thinking about a mixed berry tart with that creamy custard and amazing crust made us crave the tart!Berry Tart header
