It's harder than it looks!
Loretta, Abbie, Balkes and Naz
Naz filling cookies with pistachios
The view from the living room...orange trees in foreground, with a small olive grove.
It's not what you think! It's ground dates, put through a meat grinder to get the right consistency.
Making dough balls
We sort of resemble 2nd graders hard at work.
This was the little tool we used to decorate the cookies.
A really big bowl of fresh spinach
Balkes put some major muscle into the spinach to smush it down and get a lot of the water out of it.
A bowl of fresh goat cheese, rolled into these little crescent dough triangles.
Putting the spinach mixture into dough. (Spinach, harissa, and fresh lemon-lime juice - yummy just to eat with a spoon.)
The portable oven, rolled into the living room. Butane tank around the corner.
The finished product! These are the spinach filled pastries - heavenly!
