You were in my prayers, last night. I asked Allah (God) to bless you and take care of you as you have been nurturing me and countless others through food. Your down-to-earth exotic vegetarian dishes have renewed my relationship to food. I have searched for Turkish recipes in English, and none are as approachable as yours. Thank you for your efforts here.
