"<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now."

    I made an onion in the microwave yesterday; on high for 5 minutes. It does not need anything else, just salt! Delicious!

    Loved this. It's reminiscent of French onion soup. Would totally serve this at a dinner party as a side. Thanks for posting Agent Evelyn!! Made for Culinary Quest FP 2014.

    DH would give it 5 and I would give a 4.5 so five star it is. Other than putting the chopped scrapes back in to the onion I followed the recipe exactly. For myself I would omit the sugar next time. DH loves it as is. My onions were large and took nearly 90 minutes. Made for Culinary Quest 2014
