Mmmmmmmmm

It has occurred to me that blog posts about food are very popular. My bread post got many more comments than most of my knitting posts. So, never one to miss an opportunity to improve my standing in the blog-o-sphere, I give you tonight's dessert...

My guys made baklava today.

Posing with their creation



Yummy close up view!

I also took pictures of the lentil soup I made, but somehow, steaming in the big pot, it just didn't look as appetizing. Maybe I should have taken the picture of it artfully served in a big ceramic bowl with crusty baguette posed nicely on the side.

Mmmmm.... baklava

The baklava looks amazing!

I know what you mean about lentil soup. It just isn't very photogenic.

Sooo....will that batch LAST until next Friday - for the Hog-and-Bloggers? (I'm teasing - 'sides, no way a batch of baklava could last more than three days, and that only if it was frozen. No...actually, if it were frozen, it would thaw pretty fast, and by the time you got out the cinnamon ice cream it'd be fine. I can't think of a situation where baklava would last more than three days. (Just so you know - from HERE your knitting's as delicous-looking as the food.) Hmm...Mr Dearling made a wonderful pasta pesto with artichokes, chicken and black olives tonight. I wonder if I left a recipe for baklava lying around..........?!?!?!

Now did they make that phyllo from scratch? I've always wanted to do that...

Yum! Baklava! My aunt used to make us a batch every Christmas. I miss that.

Leslie said...

Yes, it looks delicious! I've never made baklava, but I do love to eat it.

Magatha said...

Food brings 'em all running! Even your faitful lurkers like moi.

I love me some men who cook and bake! Beautiful sweets guys!

Carol said...

Guys that bake, nothing better! I'm starved! And I do love your knitting just as much, one has to have ample fiber in their daily diet!

MarieGrace said...

Dude! You guys make baklava!?!

When you email me the recipe make sure you include the part about how you got the men to cook it.

Laura said...

omg. I love baklava, but have never been brave enough to make it myself.

Can I adopt your son?

Carina said...

*drool* Baklava! I've been too scared to make that, and since I go to an Orthodox church with Greek and Macedonian yayas (grandmothers), I occasionally get some at church coffee hour. Still, I should learn how one of these days.

Lynn said...

That does it. I'm moving in. There's room in your lair for my stash, too, right?

Cindy G said...

Yup the food gets the comments. I'm drooling. I've never had a whole pan at once, can you send your guys out on a road trips?

Oy, I'm gaining weight just looking! ;-D

Terby said...

Delicious. Now I want dessert.

Baklava, how do I love thee?
Let me count the ways:
1.2. Butter & Honey which have become one
3. Nuts
4. Cinnamon
I didn't even read the blog post. I jumped right to comments. Is it for school? If I ask nicely, will Owen save me a piece--a big piece? You can mail it in this weather you know. Owen is so cool. Probably the kiss of death coming from me. Better not tell him I think that.
