    We enjoyed liked this recipe. I heated it up the next day for lunch and it was just as good the next day. You could also forget the phyllo dough and half the butter for a great side dish. There was no mention of the pan size and so I used a cookie sheet.


I live in beautiful Montreal, QC. I was born in Israel and came to Canada at the age of 10. I work as a senior clerk / medical office manager and as a second job I do medical interviews/assessments on the phone. I love to cook food using fresh ingredients, especially mediterranean cuisine, as my mom is from Egypt. I also like French food - that is where my dad comes from. I have been married 26 years and have 2 great kids daughter (24 y.o.) and son (21 y.o.). I have a sweet cocker spaniel named Caramel and a parrot by the name of Kiwi. As you can see, we really love food.
