World Cup Fever


So, the Greek soccer team is still alive at the World Cup tournament. I’m not sure how it all works, how some teams stay alive even though they lose a match. We’re a baseball and basketball home, not really a soccer home.

Classic Greek Butter Cookies (Koulourakia)

Koulourakia-JThe basic and official butter cookie of Greece is called “Koulourakia” (prounced Koo-loo-RA-keya).  There are many different variations to the basic butter cookie. This particular recipe is a family one dating back to the 1950’s. My Yiayia Salidas ran a catering business in Jamaica Plain Massachusetts and this is the recipe she used for her clients. This secret recipe also became her in-law’s (my maternal grandmother’s) go-to recipe, my mom’s and now mine.
