  You know, I love pasta dishes as they are cheap, easy to make and very versatile.  If you are working and don’t have much time, this is a dish you can prepare in no time.  Although I do not work, during summers I love to spend my time at the beach rather than being […]

We love fish recipes and most of them I keep rather simple. Fresh fish is wonderful seasoned with only salt, pepper and oregano and then grilled or broiled.  It is then served with «ladolemono» sauce. Grilled Lavraki (sea bass)  Fish is very healthy, so I try to make it for dinner at least once a […]

I’ve been busy the past days as I am now trying to make the book into an e-book, but this turned out harder than I anticipated.   However, we still have to eat and since it was really cold here in Athens last week,  cold days call out for hot soups. I first made this soup […]

One of my favourite summer dishes is fasolakia yahni, a traditional dish with grean beans, which is easy, tasty, cheap and healthy.   Yahni is the method of cooking and is similar to a stew or ragout. In Greece we get two types of green beans. Barbounia, which are flat and tsaoulia, which are the […]

I am not really a fan of beef or veal and rarely cook it but I do like liver although I don’t cook that very often either, as it is high in cholesterol.  I was craving liver and as it’s been a very long time since I last cooked red meat I decided to cook […]

Louvi is black eyed beans.  When they are still fresh they are called louvi fresko (or ambelofassoula in Greece) and louvi xero (mavrommatika) when they are dried. Louvi fresko can be eaten as a main dish but also as a salad to accompany other dishes. Louvi xero can be eaten as a stew with chard […]

Although I have been blogging for almost three years, I don’t think I have ever posted a sandwich recipe before, mainly because I had so many other recipes I wanted to post. However, when I posted the menu of what I usually eat, I mentioned the Tuna Salad Sandwich and Lettuce Salad with tuna, which […]

I am not a person who believes in astrology nor do I listen to zodiacs on T.V. or read them in magazines and newspapers but I wonder if we had a retrogade Hermes (Mercury) this past week or maybe it was a «kako mati» or evil eye as we say in Greece and as some […]

Every month there is an event going on at Jenn’s blog, where the winner chooses three ingredients with which we have to cook.  Although I love participating at this event as we challenge ourselves to create recipes we would never dream of making, most of the times the ingredients given are not so easy to […]
