Let Me Introduce Myself
I am Yusuf and living with my family ( my wife and son) in Eskisehir, Turkey. I am the content creator, photographer and recipe tester behind this blog. And my wife Zerrin is the best assistant to me, she is a great cook. So her cooking has always inspired me.
I started Give Recipe back in 2009 without knowing much about blogging. We were newly married and neither of us knew how to cook. My wife would call her mom everyday to ask how to make a certain dish. She would write down the recipes on small note cards just to loose them later. One day as she was searching for one of her recipe cards, I suggested that we should start a website and keep them all in one place. I was already a fan of a few bloggers and loved reading food blogs, so I knew I would enjoy creating a blog about my favorite foods. It could even be a great opportunity to introduce my favorite Turkish recipes to the world. Throughout the years, we have made so many friends from all over the world and enjoyed being a part of the blogosphere.
About Our Recipes:
When I first started this blog, I mostly shared recipes from Turkish cuisine. However, over the years I realized that I didn’t want to limit myself to only Turkish food, because as I spent more time in the kitchen with my wife, I find myself being curious of other cuisines as well. It was a natural progression from there to learn and share the recipes that we enjoyed the most.
Along the way, after finding out that our son had intolerance towards various animal products including beef, dairy and eggs, we started experimenting in vegan cooking and baking as well. Even though he no longer has that problem, the experience we gained from that time made us appreciate the value of cooking wholesome and healthy dishes for our family.
As a result, today, Give Recipe has over 800 recipes ranging from Turkish Cuisine classics including Menemen(Turkish style eggs with tomatoes and peppers) and Turkish Spicy Ezme Salad to some of the most loved American dishes like Chocolate Zucchini Bread and Double Chocolate Pancakes. My hope here is that you would find our website to be a valuable resource that will ease your life in the kitchen and offer you a variety of healthy and easy-to-make options.
Here are a few reader favorites to get you started. These are the most shared, pinned and commented recipes that have stood the test of time:
As a self-proclaimed foodie, nothing makes me happier than sharing food and recipes. I believe that good food brings people together and makes them happy. I aim to provide you with delicious, easy-to-make, (mostly) healthy, and homemade dishes from our kitchen and hope that you like them as much we do.
