Vegetable and Halloumi Club Sandwich

First, I want to apologize for the picture. I have to buy a new camera, because the one I have is old and does not zoom as it should. I eat this very often when we go out for dinner. So, I tried to recreate it at home and it was a success. Here in...

Burger Buns

I am on a diet. You know, I keep saying that so as to believe it and try to keep away from temptation. I have to be strong, so as to lose 2 more kilos and then I will be ok. The thing is, that I have a food blog though and I cannot sustain...

Crab-Filled Crescent Wontons

I always try to find nice recipes for appetizers. To be honest, many times, I prefer to eat little somethings than a full course meal. Here in Greece we call them “mezedakia” and I know in Spain they are called “tapas”. I love this because I get to taste different flavors and I am never...

Bourbon Chicken

I had all good intentions to make a dessert in this post, but kitchen gods and perhaps the mistakes of the recipe, I was trying to make, aborted me from showing you a little something sweet. I was very frustrated, mainly because of the time I’ve spent to try and make the dessert and in...

Roasted Red Pepper Dip Part 1

Now that Easter has gone, I am starting to return to my usual everyday schedule. That means work, shopping, helping my son study, eating, sleeping. Not that much fun right? It is true that during week days, time passes by so fast, it is rather difficult to do anything exciting. The weekends, usually, we have...

Vegetarian Magiritsa

Now, I do not know how to describe this dish. I will do my best to explain. Great Saturday night here in Greece the custom calls for magiritsa. Magiritsa, basically, is a kind of soup made of lettuce, lamb’s intestines chopped, dill and other veggies. To be honest with you, I hate it. I never...

Stuffed Squid

It is Easter Sunday and we ate tons of lamb, kokoretsi (which is basically the lambs’ intestines on the spit) and kontosouvli (which is pieces of pork on the spit). I made these squids three days ago and they were excellent. I totally recommend them to you. I found the recipe on a Greek magazine...

Tsoureki Revisited

Every Easter I like to do two things; firstly to paint red eggs and secondly to make tsoureki. Tsoureki is like challah. During my lifetime I have tasted many tsourekia, some of them were good, some awful and some of them exquisite. It is true that homemade tsoureki is not the same as the store-bought....
