I’ve been wanting to make Baklava FOR-EVER y’all!!

So, my *framily* – you’ve all seen the Sprint commercials, right? These are technically my friends, but like family.
We straight?

So. My framily and I meet every month or so for a movie night, or fondue night, or pedi party, or whatever excuse really we need to hang out, drink wine, and be lazy. I convinced my favorite mother and daughter team to make baklava with me – it was a BLASTY-BLAST! Thank you Lauren, for that.

Check out my full post here on Shaina’s site for directions. IS. SO. GOOD.


But wait, there’s more!!!!

Linn and her daughter Brinn love me SO MUCH, they decided to surprise me with a BAKLAVA WITH A TWIST party, too!!

They knew I had been dying to try those Painting With a Twist parties, so we made our own! Brinn made pallet sugar cookies, finger painted cake balls, and decorated with confetti, balloons, and pennant banners! I LOVE THEM.



ITWASSOMUCHFUN now that I think about it again.

Never mind that they told me they had a surprise for me, and I was really hoping for a puppy, but hey, this works.


Kidding. The last thing I need is *another* animal to pee in the house.



Grab your friend.

Coerce them into helping you.

Promise them flaky layers of honey in return.
~Peace, Love, and Phyllo Dough, y’all!

    Thanks so much for sharing your Baklava with me! It looks absolutely amazing and sounds like you had such a great time making it with your “framily.” Totally wishing I had been there too!
