As a base I used a dakos rusk called kritharokoulouro, ordinary rusks and PICK salty biscuits which are similar […]

I’ve been avoiding posting desserts the past month, although I have so many recipes I want to post.  It’s so hard to resist when you are cutting down the calories. I made this dessert early June, when my son visited from Geneva.  I had made Dulce de Leche for the second time and I was […]

Cheesecake is probably one of my best favourite desserts and although I’ve made a lot over the past years I have only two cheesecakes published on my blog. Some time back I lost a lot of my photos and among them were a few cheesecakes I had waiting to be posted.  But even after that […]

In Greece we usually make a no bake, easy cheesecake and for those of you who have never tried this baked version, I strongly recommend it. If you cannot find pecans, you can substitute them with walnuts. A mistake which is usually made by novice bakers is that they add too much butter to the […]
