Savory Cheese Cookies

Savory Cheese Cookies

I made these cookies a few days ago using the recipe from my friend Nur’s newly launched  blog in Turkish. I posted the picture bragging about my accomplishment on AZ Cookbook’s facebook page. Requests for English and Azerbaijani translation ensued soon after, which was expected, I think not because the picture was grand (you see the same picture here), but because “cheese” in the name of the cookies made everyone wonder how they taste – cheese, hmm. I would have wondered too. You can enjoy these delicious savory treats with a cup of hot sweetened tea, with a glass of cold milk, or just plain – good all the way. Nur, thank you for the recipe!

A Trip to Larchmont Farmers Market

A Trip to Larchmont Farmers Market

Berries at Larchmont Farmers Market

This Sunday we made a trip to downtown Los Angeles to meet good friends, and one of them, my university friend Xue Mei, a health conscious and farmers market lover kind of gal, took us to the nearby Larchmont Farmers Market where she goes every Sunday. It was awesome!

The market is located in the charming Larchmont Village of Los Angeles. It is a lovely small place where you can find stalls brimming with fresh vegetables and fruits, fish and shellfish, flavored olive oils, ethic foods, breads, fresh herbs, potted herbs, trees, honey, flowers, candles crafts and jewelry. Something for everybody.

I was particularly enamored with the stall that sells mushrooms of all sorts. So many different varieties! Below are some pictures I was able to snap while filling my bags with goodies and chasing our excited kids. Hope you enjoy.
