I love hearing from readers who won in a Fridge Magnet contest. It doesn’t happen often, but today I was lucky enough to hear from TWO readers.
Karen T. says she had a great time at the Wine Trail of Botetourt County Summer Concert Series, especially after the rain cleared up.
Also, I received this photo from Taylor Price, who recently won a Lebanese Cookbook on the blog. She made this baklawa for her dad for Father’s Day, and it was a big hit. Look at that beautiful pan of baklawa! I’m really impressed – aren’t you guys?
Side note: I’ve always heard that baklava, the Greek version of this treat, is made with spiced honey, while baklawa, the Lebanese version, is made with rose water syrup or orange blossom syrup. I’ve never had a problem consuming either of them!
Way to go, Taylor, and if you get a chance, please do share that recipe with us. Hope you enjoy the cookbook for a long time to come. Happy belated Father’s Day to all those gourmand dads out there.
