It’s time for another celebration, and this time we’re celebrating Christina from Strawberries for Supper who’s expecting a little boy! A bunch of my favourite blogging-ladies and I have gotten together to throw a virtual surprise shower for Christina! I had quite a bit of trouble deciding what treat I would “bring” to her virtual shower, but I decided on this recipe for authentic Greek baklava. This is an old family recipe of mine, and I’m so excited to share it today for this great occasion. Christina was actually my roommate at the Food Bloggers of Canada conference last year, and we got along straight away. Not only are we both foodies, but we’re obsessed with our dogs and we’re both self-proclaimed history nerds (although she is much more knowledgeable than I am).
Christina already has the most adorable little boy and I just know this new addition will be just as sweet. I wanted to make something a little unique for the shower and I thought that Baklava would fit the bill, plus I’ve made this recipe probably a thousand times and it’s always a crowd-pleaser. It’s amazing what a wonderful group these women are who I’ve gotten to know over the past year and a half, so be sure to check out their links as we celebrate Christina and her new little one! Congrats Christina!
