Homemade spreads are easy to make and can be bottled in pretty jars as gifts. This original chestnut and dulce de leche spread will be much appreciated. Dulce De Leche is a favourite Latin American treat.  I combined this amazing treat with chestnuts and I am very proud to have created this delicious spread.  Whenever I […]

  Cheesecake is one of our favourite desserts. If you ask me which kind do I prefer, the baked one or the no bake one, it’s very difficult to reply because I like both but if I were to chose only one, I would say the baked one.   Today it” s my eldest son’s […]

This dessert is easy to make and so light and refreshing, which will please everyone.  Instead of making a pastry cream with heavy cream, butter and eggs, I made this light cream using evaporated milk and Greek yoghurt, which add a wonderful taste but with far less calories. My relatives in Sparta have started their new […]

The crust is the same for both cheesecakes.  Each one is different in taste and texture but both delicious. You can see below in the video how I shaped the crust. Two different Chocolate […]

When I started blogging seven years ago, I never believed that it would last so long.  It is characteristic of those born under the Aries zodiac sign that we get very enthusiastic when we start a new project but we tend to lose interest and give up easily. Personally, I am surprised that I am still blogging […]

This recipe started when I attempted to make mozarella cheese and failed! It’s not the first time that amazing recipes are created after an unsuccessful attempt to make something else.  Technically this is not the traditional panna cotta made with full fat cream but a much lighter version made with two kinds of milk and […]

I based this dessert on an older recipe of mine which I make with Greek yoghourt, whipping cream, sugar and canned tutti frutti.  These four ingredients make an easy and delicious dessert called Yiaourtoglyko (yoghourt dessert) which you can have ready in five minutes. I love making fruit preserves, which I love using  in my recipes. […]

Easter is just a few days away and this will probably be my last post before Easter.  The fasting period is almost over but there are some days during Lent when not only animal products are not allowed for the Orthodox fasting period but also any kind of fat, be it animal or vegetable fat. […]

I always start the first post of the year with something symbolic, which should be sweet so that the New Year will also bring sweet memories the next year to come.  My first dessert of the year is not only sweet but also peppery which makes it even more  interesting as they will be lively and […]
