BBA Artos Greek Celebration Bread

After seeing so many beautiful Artos breads in many beautiful shapes I feel ashamed of my silly buns but they look much better than my braid and are simpler to hide in the freezer !
I really enjoied this recipe and the smell that came out of the oven when it was baking. I made it plain with the spices and orange zest but without dried fruits and nuts and maybe next time I'll add some raisins.
Please check about the BBA Challenge !!!

TWD Cinnamon Squares

Last week's recipe is still waiting (I'm trying to lose some weight and the amount of calories scared me ! ) but I decided to make the Cinnamon Squares first (and take them right away to the nurses at the hospital where my mother is staying to learn how to move the new knee ) but I forgot to add the melted butter so I don't know how it will turn out !

So as you can see the chocolate sank too !! I don't know how the nurses will take it !
Thanks to Tracey of My Culinary Adventures for choosing this recipe! You can find the recipe on her blog or in Dorie's book. Don't forget to check out the TWD blogroll!
