I was watching British cooking shows while trimming the tree the other day. One of them featured a gorgeous Moroccan pie or pastry. I wasn’t paying close enough attention to actually get the recipe but I did get the idea.
Naturally, I had to modify it to suit….
The problem was she used a quiche pan. She lined it with …
I had phyllo left after my last adventure with Herb and Zucchini Phyllo Pies.
Naturally, I still have zucchini.
So I decided to give it another try.
I made this batch a little more substantial – just because.
Preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes
4 sheets phyllo dough 1 small zucchini, grated or shredded finely
I got the idea for these in one of my Greek cook books.
It was called ‘kolokithópita’ or zucchini pie. (Similar to ‘spanakópita’ or spinach pie.)
It served 8.
I was thinking more along the line of tapas, samosas, mezze, little bites….
A first course for two.

I was a little concerned that …
We're perilously close to having another room done.
All that's left is the trim (always the trim) around the floor and window.
The hall is next in line to be finished.

She made the main course, another guest made …
I'm trying to tidy my desktops – both the one that sits on my computer and the one that my computer sits on.
Never an easy task.
The puppies have been taking all of my time lately, and things have rather piled up.
The vet cleared Bonnie for serious play this morning and I can now throw them outside without …
My first introduction to phyllo dough was Baklava.
It's still, IMHO, the best possible use for it, even if it's so sweet it makes my teeth hurt and I can only tolerate a piece once a year….. It's still a D.O. (Digestive Org*sm).
I would never, ever consider making Baklava. The only possible way would be if I could figure …
This is not going to turn into a puppy blog.
After this I will restrain myself to the occasional puppy-update… Say. once a month (or so).
But I couldn't resist this shot.
Guapa – sleeping with total puppy abandon.
She didn't even move when the flash went off.
Bonnie, on the other hand, likes to be in a …
