Baklava with chocolate

Baklava, A timeless beauty

Excerpt from the book “Take the Taste of Greece with you” by Litsa Bolontzakis

A recipe with a rich past that only gets better with time…One of my favorite desserts, it can be enjoyed in many different ways, with chocolate, or different nuts like pistachios, with ice-cream or not… 

Baklava with chocolate

Baklava by Litsa!

Easy to make and it can last with no refrigeration for a few days.

I mean how can you go wrong with Phyllo, nuts, and honey…It’s a marriage made in heaven, and that is why it has staying power…

Ok, I agree that Phyllo is very capricious, but you take the control and you be the boss, make sure you have all your ingredients ready and waiting, and work fast because Phyllo likes to dry up and when that happens it crumbles and you can’t work with it…

 

 

The right place at the right time . . .

The perfect time to pick strawberries is right now! Will you take your children to get a taste of those fresh berries and enjoy a few hours of fun with them? We like to take Juliana, and the happiness she enjoys is a precious gift to us. This time, she was so happy that, at the tender age of 4, she exclaimed to her grandfather, with a great smile: “Thank you, Grandpapa, for bringing me to pick strawberries!” Talk about “priceless”!
