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 […]

    Yesterday, the Greek food bloggers were invited to a tour at Unilever-Elais factory, this time to see how margarine is prepared. We visited their olive oil factory a few weeks ago and although I am a vivid fan of olive oil, I also use margarine as well, whenever necessary.  Butter may taste better […]

Today is my little daugter’s birthday.  Evanggelia (Elia) is turning 19 today. I asked her a few days ago what kind of cake she would like for her birthday and she insisted that she wanted a plain sponge cake, with whipped cream and strawberries.  «Are you sure», I told her «this is way too easy.  […]
