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??

Greek Spiced Candied Plums & Plum Brandy (or Plum Spoon Sweets & Syrup!)

Plums are liars.  Okay, not all plums lie, but when they do it’s really bad, but it’s nothing that booze and sugar can’t fix.  Well, at least in this case.

Beefy-Leekie Soup (or is it Leekie-Beefy Soup?)

I’m leaning towards the first name because the second just doesn’t sound right.  Seeing as how leek (the vegetable) sounds just like leak (the dripping action), the second name doesn’t give a good visual for what is a really good meal.

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!

Fursecuri Cu Stafide (Romanian Rum Raisin Cookies)

As handy as Google translate can be, there are times when it really kind of sucks.  Like when you’re trying to read recipes in Romanian.  I’m pretty sure these cookies aren’t really called raisins with raisins, because that seems kind of redundant.
