What was once a Soframiz review is now a Sofra vs Kareem's curiosity post

I’m always of two minds when it comes to Middle Eastern cooking.

On the one hand, I know that I love Middle Eastern food.  There’s a restaurant a couple of towns away from me called Kareem’s, where I learned how wonderful and diverse Middle Eastern food really was.  614 more words

Kraljica bajramske sofre: Baklava...

Godinama unazad svakog Bajrama, ramazanskog ili Kurban- bajrama, tačnije noć prije obavezno sam bila kući pored majke čekajući trenutak kad će početi praviti baklavu.
