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 […]

Making liqueurs is very easy and you will find a few links of previous liqueurs I have made at the end of this post.  It can get even easier and cheaper if you preserve fruit and I will explain why. Years ago I used to discard the leftover syrups of the fruit preserves I made. […]

The usual Loukanikopitakia we make in Greece are those called Pigs in a Blanket made with frankfurter sausages, wrapped in puff pastry. The other day I made Galaktoboureko and had some leftover phyllo sheets*.  Instead of making the usual Tyropitakia I saw some Kalamata sausages** in the fridge, I had leftover parmesan from my last recipe […]

This dish was made […]

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. […]

Did you know that in the Middle Ages the British used to call the cauliflower «Cyprus Colewort»?   It is believed that the cauliflower originated in Cyprus, where the oldest record dates from the 6th century b.C.    Cauliflower,  arrived in Europe from Cyprus by the Venetians.

This is a very easy pasta dish you can pull together in less than half an hour.  I always keep some sausages in the deep freezer and had some leftover leeks from the last time we went to the farmers” market.  Of course, it’s impossible that a Greek household is without feta, so with a […]
