  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.

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 […]

Tsoureki is a type of Greek style sweet brioche bread.   What makes it different is the kind of butter used and its flavour as mahleb and mastic resins are used, which gives it a unique taste. This year I decided to make something different, so I made some changes to my recipe.  What makes […]

This recipe is one of those recipes where it will leave you wondering “why didn’t I think of this before?”. During the fasting period of Lent, I get very creative when creating new recipes.  This recipe may be very simple but then many other simple recipes are delicious but it always needs someone to think about […]
