Psomotyri (ψωμοτύρι) in Greek means bread and cheese and Tyropita (τυρόπιτα) is a pie made with cheese.  Psomotyri, used to be a staple food decades […]

Creplan is a recipe I created combining two recipes:  Crêpes and Flan.  All the ingredients of a flan are combined with flour to make this very thin batter, like crêpes, which is then baked in the oven.  I baked it in a 12 inch by 7.75 inch loaf cake pan in a cathedral shape sent to […]

  These slices of rustic village bread with an egg fried in the center are so simple to prepare but yet so delicious for breakfast or brunch.   The  addition of the egg is something I saw on the internet but slices of bread with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano, baked over charcoal is an […]

    The Greek referendum finished last night with a loud “NO” against the bullying by the European Union.   Austerity hasn’t worked. Five years is enough! Europe’s self-styled technocrats were like medieval doctors who insisted on bleeding their patients — and instead of healing the wounds, they kept putting salt on them. We are […]

  Last week it was my husband’s birthday and I made this cake for him. Instead of making the usual sponge cake, this time I decided to make it with a pound cake. I think everyone knows what a pound cake is but for those who don’t, it’s a traditional American type of cake, with Northern European […]

Eggplants (aubergines) are now seasonal and combined with potatoes and cheese makes this a delicious summer meal.  The secret of this dish is the addition of potatoes which suck up all the deliciousness of the sauce, which make it irresistible. This dish was inspired by my Cypriot recipe Vazania (melitzanes) Giahni (stewed eggplants) which is a […]

Τhis vegan Ryzogalo (Greek rice pudding) is creamy, aromatic and  so delicious that it competes with the original classic “ryzogalo”, which is  amazing! We all love the rich “ryzogalo” our mum used to make but there are many people who are lactose or gluten intolerant and of course there are many people who follow a vegan diet, or during […]

The word “kolokytholoukoumades” may seem long and complicated to pronounce but it is a blend of two words, from kolokythia (courgettes/zucchini) and loukoumades (Greek doughnuts). I bought some courgettes (zucchini) from the farmers’ market a few days ago, to make briam.   The courgettes were really fresh with their blossoms still on.  I usually add the blossoms, along […]
