      • I didn’t forget about you. We were distilling the lavender yesterday in Sonoma, and what a treat it was to watch the process. I will be posting pictures shortly. I found a baklava recipe of mine for you, it’s actually on my blog. I do have variations of it, like adding chocolate to the inside, or dip the phyllo in chocolate, or even use pistachios, almonds and walnuts. I can go on for days about it, but you should order some from me! πŸ™‚ I am sure you will love it, or make this recipe. let me know what you decide to make. πŸ™‚ Cheers and Happy Thursday!

      • Pistachios would be so tasty and crunchy. I love your recipe with the delicious honey and phyllo dough. I will try it soon and have saved it on Pinterest! πŸ™‚ Thank you for thinking of me – and have a great evening. Oh, and Sonoma sounds awesome! Mazel tov on the expansion of your business. Very exciting (and delicious). Have a great night. πŸ™‚ Cheers! xx Shanna

      • Yes Pistachios add a great flavor. Of course I would share it with you, anytime. I love sharing my yiayias recipes and mine. Mazel Tov, love it!!! πŸ™‚
        Thank you, thank you!! Have a lovely evening as well.

      • You are very welcome! Awww, you did?! That is great, and I am very happy you are doing that. Lemon water is great!! How do you like it? Yes, I try to include healthy foods into my recipes lol. You as well!

      • I enjoy it… I sure hope it is detoxing my liver. hehe. I do enjoy a little wine. πŸ˜‰ I jump right into coffee after the lemon water – what can I say? Need my nice expresso. LOL. Yes, your recipes are so healthy, fresh, seasonal – and have a gorgeous Greek spin on them. Enjoy your weekend!

      • Thank you thank you. I am in the works of my YouTube channel. Do you have a channel on there? I still want to gather a few WordPress peeps together for a video that we can all do and combine our ingredients. πŸ™‚ Basically, people from around the world,let’s say 5 of us do one recipe, but we all have a section of the recipe to video tape and show viewers how to make. Am I making any sense lol. It’s still very early for me. Yes, espresso sounds AMAZING! Try Greek coffee sometime. πŸ™‚

      • I don’t have a YouTube channel… I generally just stick to writing. Still pretty weak in my photography. Working on those, though! I have seen some neat YouTube compilations and would love to give it a try. I love your idea. Keep me posted, for sure! PS I love ALL coffee – would love Greek coffee – don’t discriminate when it comes to coffee or espresso.

      • Yeah we should maybe do a Youtube video together then. Let me know if you would be of interest. I know I am a nerd when it comes to computers and I am actually doing eBay now and Amazon as a seller. HAHAA

        Maybe I can send you some Greek coffee?

      • πŸ™‚ Haha. I would never turn coffee down! Maybe you should sell it on your site, as well. Sounds so scrumptious.

        I would absolutely be interested. Let’s do it soon. I am glad to know a computer nerd – I shall come to you with all of my questions. Happy Saturday, Krystina! πŸ™‚

        Thanks for the nice “note.”

      • Well, what’s one more business? πŸ˜‰ And Americans drink a LOT of coffee. There is also a movement towards artisanal, imported or high quality beans!

        I am thrilled to have found you on WordPress, as well! πŸ™‚

      • Aww thank you Shanna! I know I need to do more photos. My boyfriend is the photographer, but we both work two other jobs, so it’s been quite hectic. I always try to post photos. Try to enter Featured Recipe Thursday!! πŸ™‚ I know your recipes will rock.
