Whole Wheat Apricot Waffles

I have come to the sad realization that my apricot trees only want to bear fruit every other year, and the same with my mom’s. Do they have the courtesy of producing in opposite years of each other so we can always have fresh apricots? Of course not, so rude.

Plum Cobbler

Repeat after me: a cobbler is not the same as a crisp, and neither are the same as a crumble. Or a buckle, a pandowdy, a betty, or a puzzle. Slump, maybe, but only the cobbler. Don’t even get me started on grunts. Who came up with these names??

Pasta Flora (Greek Jam Tart)

Each year we harvest a lot of fruit from our backyard orchard. Each year, I make a lot of jams and jellies. Each year I realize we don’t eat a lot of it. Hmmmm…

Christopsomo (Greek Christmas Bread)

Greeks like bread.  No… we LOVE bread.  There is literally a bread made specifically for every main holiday, and this doesn’t even cover the bread used daily and in religious ceremonies!

Stone Fruit Oven Pancake

With summer officially here, the stone fruit season is now seriously underway.  Apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, and all the hybrids in between, are dropping off trees and showing up in markets.  Gobble them up now, they don’t last long!
