My new friend Effie released an amazing book that you must check out!! EVANTHIA’S GIFT which is available over at Amazon. Be sure to check it out, and her tasty baklava recipe.
With the release of my debut novel, EVANTHIA’S GIFT, I will be reposting recipes that are mentioned in the story. Food always plays an important role in the lives of the Greek people, and for this reason, I’ve included a few recipes within the novel. Below is an excerpt where baklava is mentioned in one of the chapters.
“For Valentine’s Day she baked a delicious batch of baklava, while daydreaming how Dean would lick the sticky phyllo and walnuts off her fingertips, and she would kiss the rest of the honey off his irresistible lips.”
EVANTHIA’S GIFT is available on Amazon in print or on kindle.
1 pound finely chopped walnuts
½ cup sugar
1 package phyllo dough
1-½ cups melted unsalted butter
1-½ cups honey
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Orange rind and 2 tablespoons juice from orange
2 cinnamon sticks
