Baklava

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
I am originally Egyptian, and I made baklava for many years. As i tried many times to perfect Baklava making ; I have some suggestions, to make a good sugar syrup squeeze 1/2 a lemon into the water-sugar before boiling, make the sugar syrup the night before and let it cool. Add half of the syrup to the baklava first, then wait and test it, add more if needed. Also, before baking drizzle some honey from the bottle directly to the nuts between the layes in the middle part of the Baklava. In this case cut the baklava half way , as one reader suggests, so the honey does not escape to the bottom and burn. Add 1/4 tea spoon of ground cloves to the nut mixture, it gives the real greek flavor. These changes help me to make a goog tasty baklava

Chicken and Summer Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2014
I am originally from the Middle East and we cook chicken with zucchinis all the time. In these recipes you must add a lot of chopped onion and garlic with the vegetables. Then put the seared chicken on top, and bake for 20-30 min. adding the onion makes the dish very delicious.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2014
I make this sauce all the time with as appetizer with my middle eastern food. This recipe is missing grated cucumbers and must have minced fresh or dried mint. Also we use the Greek thick yogurt, and if we can't the regular yogurt must be strained from excess water. One clove of garlic or some garlic powder is more than enough to give the required taste.
