Koulourakia, Bougatsa, Melomakarona & Spanakopita.
I baked for Greek Easter. I have posted all these on here before so this will just be a short post to show you what I did. The recipes have been posted before.
Is it bad that I’m typing this while I sit in class and my kids are sitting a test?
Bad luck if it is!
It’s been a really busy term at school and at home, so I just haven’t had the time to post anything. In fact, I have been experimenting with all sorts of food lately as I have had to make changes to my diet. Not due to illness but due to the orangutans.
We need to save them and we need to stop destroying the rain forests in Indonesia just so Coles and other companies can make money. This is the main reason why I do not like shopping at ‘stupidmarkets!’
I have always supported the ‘No Palm Oil’ and truth in labeling, however this year I have decided to clear my home of anything containing palm oil. I was quite pleased to find that due to the fact that I make a lot of food from scratch that there weren’t as many food products in my home containing palm oil. However, the amount of body lotions, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, kitchen, laundry, and ‘organic’ stuff containing palm oil was ridiculous, if not quite scary. We are dominated by the stuff and here in Australia we do not have to declare whether a product has palm oil in it or not, so it hides behind the name of ‘vegetable oil.’
This has taken up so much of time that I haven’t had enough time to sit and post anything.
Except for these Greek biscuits. No vegetable oil – not one bit of palm oil. Instead they contain coconut oil as well as coconut flour (both absolutely amazing products) – they turned out great!
