”A Greek Recipe For Romance” on Hallmark Channel was definitely a feast for the eyes! Both with delicious Greek food AND scenery. The inspiration for this recipe comes from the scene when main character Abby (Danielle Ryan), arrives in Greece and has her first authentic Greek snack with her mother, Koulouri. It was the beginning of a beautiful journey for her!
