About

Mercimek in the Oven started with A kofte by any other name… – it’s a collection of Turkish recipes and personal anecdotes, and I welcome you to try them, put your own spin/spice on it, and let me know what you think!

I’m a librarian by day and a writer by night.  Somewhere in between, I cook, tap dance, play at the beach, raise my kid, and maintain an impressive tolerance for coffee.  After living and working in New York City for over a decade, I moved back to the Jersey Shore, where I live with my husband, daughter, mother, and other assorted seasonal family members.

All recipes are my own work or that of my family; all photos are my own, unless otherwise credited.

Afiyet Olsun!
