For the past month I have been working in recipes from your site. They have all been OUTSTANDING and as my husband puts it, “why do we need to eat out when you’re cooking restaurant quality meals?”
The subtle techniques I’ve been picking up are so translatable into my family recipes, elevating them!
I’ve been following you for a year, cooking recipes here and there, but these past 2 weeks have been 100% your recipes and all the tummies that have visited our home and have been very happy!

Karina, I absolutely adore your blog and recipes. I’ve had the pleasure of making the garlic butter turkey, and it was a hit with my family. Also, the herb garlic butter baked chicken is another favorite. I’m interested in a nice lentil soup recipe. Karina, you’re amazing! God bless you and your family and Happy New Year!
Hi Maria! I’m so happy to hear that, thank you so much for your feedback. Here is our lentil soup recipe https://cafedelites.com/best-lentil-soup/
