White Chicken Enchiladas

First of all I would like to thank you for your comments on my son’s school. It is true that elementary school here in Greece has become very demanding. I remember when I was a child, we learned how to multiply at the second grade and how divide at the third grade. My son is...

Spinach and Feta Scones

Now I have a problem. I have a 7 year old boy, who refuses to concentrate and study his lessons. Everyday I dread the time I return back home and have to help him study. It is like a nightmare for me. Especially now that the weather is getting better and better and days are...

Veal Stew with Mashed Potatoes

As you will notice today there are two types of posts. One involves the usual recipe. The other one regards a visit we did in a ranch in the southern part of Greece and more specifically in Sofiko. But let’s take first thing first. My son goes to the 1st grade of primary school. He...

Soufflé with Cream Cheese

I was browsing my recipes, to find something not too loaded with calories, not too fussy, not too much. I have to tell you that I have lots and lots of recipes. My husband makes fun of me and he says that, if every day I cooked a different recipe, it would take me 5...

Tom Rim Man (Caramelized Garlic Shrimp)

I am pretty busy during the week with work, kid etc. Thus, the only time I have to cook and test, so as to post about it, is on weekends. I was intrigued by Joanne’s Regional Recipes competition for a dish from Vietnam. I think most people know Vietnam from its war with the United...

Pineapple Chicken Enchiladas

I was trying to find an exotic recipe to make for me and my husband, since the kiddo would eat at my mother’s. You see, another good thing about having a child is that, most of the times you do not have the anxiety of what to eat. The child decides what we will eat...

Chocolate Cake

I am sick. I have a bad cold. My throat aches and my nose is as red as a tomato. My husband is also sick. He is also having a fever. This is awful. The outside temperature is 27° C and we are sitting here wiping each other’s nose. Anyway, I hope by tomorrow, we...
