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 it comes to creating a new recipe, I just follow my instict, which fortunate enough for me, it always works. I’ve made many chickpea salads over the years and today I wanted to make something totally new.   I knew the recipe would work just as well with pasta, rice or quinoa as I have used […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Christos Anesti (Christ has risen) to all my Christian readers. Hope you had a joyful Easter! This recipe is one of those I cooked at the restaurant, at the beginning on Lent, when I was in Cyprus, for the staff. I love dried legumes, especially lentils and if I were to chose between a meat dish or […]
