This bread is the bread I ate in Santorini when I visitied my family. I love Greece and loved visiting this unique island. This is a fast and easy delightful bread to make and has a lovely flavor. The colors from the ingredients stand out. It brings a little bit of old world flavor with it and to your home. It is very quick to make.
Enjoy a little bit of Greece. The picture on the book cover is a place we walked and stayed near.

These are the best of the best in old-fashioned pancakes. (Thank you, Halifax Liz for letting me know that your grandmother was making these in Northern Ireland 70 years ago.) It's no wonder a recipe like this has such staying power, they're super easy & make use of on-hand ingredients. The secret to their firm but fluffy texture is using tiny cubes of white bread to support the batter. But you'll never know they're in there! I've been making this recipe for about 10 years now & I like to serve these pancakes with jams, maple syrup & my homemade syrup from Recipe #22066. I also usually double the recipe if there is more than just the 3 of us eating.
The recipe was found in "Pancakes A to Z", one of the three books in my favorite cookbook series by Marie Simmons and there titled "Rux's Family's Favorite Pancakes". My family simply dubbed them "Special Pancakes" and even though it doesn't take a special day to make them, they make ANY day feel special.
From a Swedish cookbook left to me by my dear Swedish neighbor. These are awesome, I never thought to just make fritters with nothing but cinnamon! I have yet to make them but when Millie made them I was always sure to get some.
From "Great Whole Grain Breads" by Beatrice Ojakangas. This is really, really fast and tasty...I like it with butter or cream cheese. You can find barley flour in most natural food stores and many large supermarkets.
My boyfriend and I came home one night after a long long long day of work and play. We were starving and oh no, there was NOTHING to eat. I had just been on this whole baking kick weeks prior so there was tons of flour and eggs left from it, so I (very tiredly) concocted this. Its so basic you probably have already made it yourself but its so yummy and hit the spot for both of us. You can serve it up with anything. I used crunchy peanut butter and honey on top and my boyfriend used apple custard. Of course you can top with maple syrup or any thing really... be creative. There is one ingredient, I bet that will surprise you. Enjoy.
My kids like this because the cabbage is cooked well in this recipe and doesn't have that raw feel to it. I use package coleslaw in this as it means I can get dinner on the table quickly when I need to. I've tried other recipes, but the batter seems really bland to me. This version uses dashi, sake and soy sauce, which makes it seem more home-flavored to me. Add in whatever other protein sources along with or in lieu of the ham...I've seen shrimp, tuna, imitation crab and crab used with great success. Just make sure that there's enough batter to hold everything together.
I found this recipe from the package of okonomi sauce. You can change the meat, seafood and vegetable ingredients to suit your taste. I added some shredded carrots and chopped onions when I made this the first time. Some recipes asked for corn and green onions as well.
Why buy it when you can make it yourself.
It's easy, cheap, require only a minimal amount of time to be prepared and it's good food.
My family and myself love it, so I hope you will too :)

Looking for something new to do with those old ripe bananas? These banana fritters have just the right amount of sweetness that the whole family will enjoy. My family hails from St. Thomas, USVI and my mother used to make these for us all the time as kids. I still love them. But beware these are definitely not for the dieting type, but they are so delicious, enjoy!
