Farmhouse recipe found on the walls of the old farmhouse. With some help and clues from some of my friends here, have concluded a Greek origin to one of the cooks who lived long ago in the farmhouse. Recipes from the old country some mixed with an American flare..either way they are all unique and should be preserved and what better way to preserve and share than right here in Just a Pinch.
