What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.
|Koulourakia (Greek Braided Cookies)|

Koulourakia is a Greek cookie traditionally served at Easter time. When I first started baking, these cookies were always a part of my repertoire, much to the delight of my parents and brother.
I haven't made them in many years. When my mom saw me pull them out of the oven recently, she said, "Those remind me of the cookies that you used to make." Needless to say, she was very excited to find out they were in fact Koulourakia. They are lightly sweetened and go perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee. They would be great served at brunch or afternoon tea. I am so glad I revisited this cookie recipe. Now I can add one more Koulourakia fan to my list: my 3-year-old son couldn't get enough of them!
