These vegetarian lentil burgers started as an experiment one day when I had leftover Fakes Moudjentra.  We loved them and ever since I make more to have leftovers.  Usually when lentils with rice are leftover, the rice absorbs all the fluid so they become one mass which are not enjoyable to be eaten the next […]

This is an all time favourite, easy dessert I remember from my childhood but like everything else, recipes can evolve as well into something more complex than an ordinary, simple dessert. You must know by now how I love making fruit preserves, jams and homemade liqueurs.  I never serve them the old fashioned way but […]

  Last night my children came to visit us.  I made this lovely cherry cake but having to do so many other things,  I forgot to take more pictures of the cake. I’ve made cherry cakes before but the cherries always seem to sink inside when baked.  This time I reserved some cherries which I […]

Don’t be fooled by the picture.  This is not a Pizza.  I call it a tart and I baked it in a tart pan but it’s neither a tart.  It’s more like an open faced pie, which we call «plastos». This tart was not in the menu yesterday.  Actually, I was planning to make Fakes […]

Gemista, is one of the best Greek summer dishes.   Gemista means stuffed vegetables and we usually stuff tomatoes and bell peppers with rice and aromatic herbs and spices and others stuff them with minced meat and rice. If you like you can stuff other vegetables, such as eggplants or zucchini as well.  Potatoes are optional […]

  I recently posted a Cypriot recipe for Kaikanas, as I remember it from my mother. Yesterday, I wanted to make a quick snack for brunch, a mezedaki as we call it in Greece, and with this recipe in my mind, with a few zucchini (courgette) blossoms and some courgettes, I made this savoury kaikanas.   […]

Green beans are cheap this time of the year, so I practically cook them once a week.  When we came back from the farmers” market,  I  cleaned, washed and dried them and  the following day they were ready to be cooked. When buying them, I intended to cook them yiahni, as is the usual Greek […]

Good morning and wishing you a happy weekend and a wonderful summer! The farmers’ market in Nafplion is twice a week, every Wednesday and Saturday.  Now that we are just the two of us living here in Assini, we don’t really need to visit the farmers’ market twice a week but I enjoy visiting Nafplion […]

As I have said in a previous post, Galaktoboureko or galaktomboureko is one of my favourite Greek desserts. There is a place in Southern Attica, specifically in Vari, called Vlahika, where galaktoboureko is famous because it is made with ewe’s milk and ewe’s butter.  A few decades ago, this area was full of sheep.  As Vari is […]
