Ins't that a khohanots? Or is that not Armenian?

Vava, go to the language section and look for "Khohket".
As to language the CookBook needs some editing too, which is nothing new but it deserves a whole separate thread. For one, , among many, "taouk" is Turkish.

It's a low carb version of potatoes to go with omellettes.
It's not bad.
And we have them raw a lot,we have them around so often,the dog even loves them for a snack! He's just a strange dog he like the hard parts of romaine lettuce and cauliflower laugh.gif rolleyes.gif
When you're doing low carb you just gotta get creative smile.gif

1 cup cream of wheat
1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1 stick butter

Put the cream of wheat in a pot by itself with nothing else over the stove. Let it fry until it turns pink.

In a separate container mix the milk, sugar, and butter and bring to a boil. This is the hot syrup.

Then take this hot syrup and pour it over the pink cream of wheat. Then start mixing over very low flame. Keep mixing until all the syrup is sucked in. Then turn off the stove and let it rest.

Once it has rested and cooled to warm and risen a little more, mix it one more time to make it fluffy. Then you are done. Put cinnamon on it if you wish or other stuff.
