Semolina Porridge with Strawberry Sauce and Ladyfingers- (Cilek Soslu Kedi Dilli Irmik Tatlisi)


I am back again with a delicious light strawberry dessert recipe. I was away from my blog for two months when I was in Turkey. My brother got married and I was pretty busy during that time. As you can guess I didn’t cook while I was in Turkey and I ate too much Turkish food 😉 Now I’m back to share my recipes. Also I will share some pictures my Turkey trip later. Keep checking here. 😉
