Thoughts On Karidopita Greek Cake:

This Greek Cake dessert is great for impressing someone who has never tried it. It is not overly sweet and the glaze complements the cinnamon flavor and cloves. The walnuts add a very nice texture to the cake and are traditional in the recipe. This cake is a great fall-time but can be served any time of the year because it is so delicious.

More Information For You:

This is a famously Greek Walnut cake. Walnuts as a cooking ingredient goes back to the Greeks. Read more about walnuts and their health benefits at GREEK GOES KETO and you can also read their version of a great Keto Karidopita Cake.

Some Questions For You:

My Thoughts For Today:

Let sleeping dogs lie.

This is my youngest daughter's dog. He is very small. He is also very sweet and spoiled. I am mostly to blame for him being so spoiled. He loves to lay on my lap and nap while I write. If you look up "lap dog" in the dictionary you will probably see this picture of him on my lap. You could say he is the "Poster Dog" for lap dogs. So when you read my posts there is a great chance this little dog is lying on my lap making it difficult for me to work. It's ok. I love that little dog.

I got to attend a birthday party today for a little relative. It was the 3rd birthday party for my great-nephew. He is a cool little guy and reminds me of his dad when he was that age. Kids and dogs grow too fast. I believe it is best to enjoy them when they are small and do our best to make them happy.

Keep on cooking!
