Spoon Sweets

I have already posted the traditional recipe for Glyko Karpouzi a few years ago but here’s a different approach, making it with mini watermelons and more fragrance. Unfortunately I did not have some pickling lime, so I did not use it this time and as a result, it was not very crunchy.  However,  if you […]

During the Christmas period, I indulge into using more butter than I use throughout the whole year.  But then what would Christmas be without making cookies and other desserts?   After six months of diet I have learned to restrain myself  and until today I have only tried a small piece from each to see […]

  This time of the year the grapes are very cheap so apart from making moustalevria, you can make it into fruit preserve and use it in lots of recipes like cheesecake, panna cotta, eat it plain as it is or with Greek yoghurt etc.   When the grapes fall off the bunch, here in […]

Cheesecake is one of our favourite desserts but being on the Mediterranean Diet, for a few months now, I didn’t want to make something loaded with calories and unfortunately […]

The strawberry season is almost ending and now you can get them quite cheap.   If you like having strawberries, year round (not that they’ll last so long) you can preserve them.   Imagine eating your ice cream with strawberries and strawberry syrup in August, or making strawberry panna cotta in winter.  The leftover syrup is a […]

I was thinking of making a coffee liqueur with the Espresso Natalia gave me and I google searched to see how it is made.  I have made liqueurs in the past so I knew the procedure but still I wanted to see if there was something more to do.  I found this recipe and since […]

I suppose most of you  will be surprised seeing eggplants served as a sweet.  I know that my Greek friends have eaten or heard of melitzanaki glyko.  I had to share with you a twist I made to this traditional recipe, in which I added grenadine, not only for the lovely taste, but also to […]

I love making spoon sweets and every time I write about one I end up saying that it is my favourite.  Each one has a different taste and when raw even if it is bitter like the walnuts or citrus or tasteless like water melon rind, when it is done it is transformed into something […]

Quince is one of my favourite spoon sweets and I made it three times this year.  The first and second time I made it the same way as I had previously posted the recipe and my children loved it. My son who was coming from Switzerland for the Christmas holidays told me that he wanted […]
