Easter Recipes and what to do with your LeftoversBy Ivy • Απρ 27th, 2013 • Category: Cypriot, Greek, My recipes
Greek Orthodox Easter is just a week away, so if you would like to get an idea of what to prepare, I have put together some of my Easter recipes and a few ideas of what to do with the leftovers.
On Easter day a lot of people celebrate their name days: Lambros – Lambrini, Anastasios – Anastasia, Paschalis – Paschalia or whatever their pet names may be. Easter day, also coincides with the name day of Irene or Irenaios, Efraimia or Efraim. George and Georgia will also be celebrating on Monday, after Easter. This happens whenever Easter is after the 23rd April, (the celebration of the feast of St. George), the feast is moved from the 23 April to the first Monday after Easter or, as it is sometimes called, to the Monday of Bright Week.
I have also included some cakes in the list, for those who will be celebrating their name days. Happy Name day to you all!

Kopiaste and Kali Orexi,
Ivy is I was born in Limassol, Cyprus and being married to a Greek, we now live in a small village near Nafplion.
I spend most of my time cooking, photographing and publishing my recipes on my blogs Kopiaste (in English and Greek), which I started in August 2007 to pursue my passion in food.
I am the author of cookbook "Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!", a compilation of 150 Cypriot family recipes, available on all Amazon stores. The book is also available as an e-book.
My new cookbook "Greek Delights" with over 250 recipes is also available on Amazon.
