I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Fake Bake Baklava

Please, Greek friends and family don't get me wrong here ... this is not kataifi, but a cheap and easy reasonable facsimile of the actual delicious Greek dessert. 

2 shredded wheat cereal
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pistachios

Simmer the sugar, honey, water, lemon juice and cinnamon stick in a saucepan for about 15 minutes. Place shredded wheat in serving dishes and slowly pour the liquid over, flip it and pour some more.Top with walnuts. Let it rest so as to absorb the liquid then pour on the balance. Leave for 1 hour then hopefully you can satisfy your Greek dessert craving!
