Baklava – A Fresh Tradition
February 20, 2012
This post is part of the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop. I had so much fun participating in the last blog hop, making my Double Chocolate Semifreddo, and I discovered a fabulous array of amazing food blogs that I couldn’t resist participating in this month’s one also.
Sweet is not necessarily on the Fresh side of the fence, but I do believe that a treat once in awhile is good for you 🙂
The theme of this month’s Sweet Adventures Blog Hop is Love at First Bite – I immediately knew what I would make.
Some time ago a friend I worked with brought in some of her mum’s home made baklava. Love at first bite. *Swoon* Oh my gosh, melt in my mouth, sweet, crunchy, nutty, gorgeousness!!! Helen’s mum created a beautiful food memory that day at the round table we gathered at for our girly chats about shoes and weekend activities.
This recipe is an adaption from a Delicious Magazine recipe I had filed away and Helen’s mum secret to amazing baklava – to use almonds instead of the traditional use of walnuts.
I have a secret nut addiction to pecans and pistachios so I couldn’t resist adding them in with Mrs S’s almonds.
Enjoy! What was your Love at First Bite?
