"Many ethnic festivals are held here throughout the year. One in May is the Greek Hellenic Festival. My family enjoys Baklava—a traditional walnut strudel. The recipe (below) uses phyllo dough, which is not difficult to work with. Just have your ingredients ready to go and follow the directions on the package. The results are scrumptious and well worth the effort." —Judy Losecco, Buffalo
