Love the pictures in this cook book. Could not wait to get this book after enjoying the Brownies to Die For! I have always been interested in trying the hungarian kiflis. Now I can venture into an ethnic treat. This is not your ordinary cookbook. I enjoy the author's sense of humor and even if you don't bake this is still a treat for the eyes.
