    Greek yogurt is wonderful and semolina flour will be something to look for. Thanks for the note on the substitute....the zest makes this special to me.

    The flavor combination sounds wonderful. I've seen that Greek yogurt in the stores but haven't tried it yet. I need to put this on my "to do" list.
