This page contains a combination of different types of recipes. “American” cooking is really a fusion of culture and food. The foods I grew up eating and cooking had many cultural and ethnic influences. On this page you may find everything from Italian to Mexican, to apple pie! The way of the “American” cook. Due to heavy cultural influence as well as adaption to what is available in the local market, there are also recipes that my husband and I refer to as “Turkmerican” an adaptation of recipes and resources from our two countries.
