Awesome shot, Mandrik.  I'm drooling.  And still trying to convince the BF that you do not poison your baklava.   :lol:

It's poisoned with awesome.

Tell him to check out my eBay profile. It's linked off my webpage.

Tell him to get some and share it at the workplace. If his coworkers do not end up cloistered in the restroom then it must be good.

I *finally* called in and told my baklava story on the FTL extended edition tonight (1/14).  I've already gotten a couple orders out of that call, and have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of baking this weekend.

Seems legit to me! I also noticed you (completely randomly, didnt know we had "friends" in common) posting about it on facebook, and the fact that you add your name to it adds to your reputation as a baklava dealer.

Yup, it's a for real thing.  I link to my eBay auction off my website so people can see my reputation as a baklava vendor.  I've sold over 30 orders through there, but most of my business comes from my website.  I mark it up a little bit on eBay due to their fees.

It really is all about the reputation.

Did you know that Mandrik's baklava also goes fabulously with Pumpkin Pie ice cream?

It goes completely against my general tendency to be a purist about some desserts - but I had a post long run craving for both things. (With 2-1/2 months of marathon training to go, I may need to order more. I like the baklava form of recovery food - carbs and protein in one sticky & delicious wedge.)

Baklava definitely goes well with ice cream.  That's how a lot of Greeks eat it.  Pumpkin pie ice cream on it sounds even better!

So that one call into FTL on Thursday was really good for business.  I've turned around and invested some money into running some ads for Valentine's Day.  You'll hear them pop up near the end of the month, and into early next month.

I had a couple pieces I hid in the freezer last month. Ate one frozen and ate the other after thawing. They were both totally awesome in their own way. It's like the honey god spoojing his giant load in your mouth.

LOL!  You guys crack me up.

I mailed my check to FTL for advertising today.  Man, I still can't believe how far this has all come.  The podcast ad sounds great, too!  Can't wait to hear it on a show.  :)

Think I should make up shirts that say "George's Famous Baklava" on the front and "It's like the honey god spoojing his giant load in your mouth" on the back?  For Porc Fest?  :P

I think a graphic depiction would be more effective.
