Instead of making pizza, you can make these rolls, which are perfect as a snack or even for breakfast. Sometimes, I make it into a big roll, which I cut into pieces and other times I make individual ones and make it into pull-aparts. Whenever you are going to make pizza again, make more dough […]

Happy Anniversary to us.  Today is our 34th Wedding anniversary.  I am not going to write much this year, as I have already written in previous anniversaries.  I  will leave it until next year since my wedding album is in Athens and I’ll have to remember to scan and post pictures of our wedding next year!

I had some friends invited for brunch today, so last night I made Spanakopita and Tyropita (the last one with homemade phyllo and feta) and this Apple Crumble. I have posted many Crumble recipes in the past, so when preparing this one, I did not take any notes. The measurements are not very accurate but I […]

I made this “Milopita” (apple pie) last week.  I managed to take a couple of photos when I reversed it from the baking tin just in time to catch the last light and was expecting to take more photos the following day. The next morning I had a planned appointment with a dentist who was […]

Flashback six years ago.  In 2007 was the year I decided to take early retirement.  To fill my spare time,  I started copying my old recipes as my scrap books were torn, greasy and falling apart.  I decided that it would be better to copy them on my computer so that in the future I […]

One of my favourite breads is olive bread.  I have lots of recipes on my blog but this time I made it quite different.  Now that we are fasting, it’s perfect for any time of the day, for breakfast, as a snack but also in the evening I don’t like eating cooked food, so a […]

Kotopita is one of many types of pita, or Greek savory pies.    After making the pork and beef galettes using leeks, I wanted to try leeks with chicken as well.  You can make the recipe from scratch or use leftover chicken or turkey. I based this pie on the Chicken Pie I used to make […]

  Spanakopita, must be the most popular Greek street food.  The most simplest form of spanakopita is that made with store bought phyllo.  However, in Greece you will enjoy amazing spanakopitas with homemade phyllo and the filling is the most aromatic, as we use herbs unique to Greece. As with tyropita (cheese pie), there are […]

My mom used to love baklavas and would make it with almonds and cinnamon.   This is based on her recipe, although I tweaked her recipe a lot and added nutmeg, and substituted the almonds with pecans and walnuts.   I learnt about pecans recently and have been using them often since then and they have […]
