Lemony Chicken Casserole

Do you remember couple of posts before the Lemony Chicken in the Pot? This is the second way of cooking lemony chicken in Greek houses. It is a very easy casserole dish; its preparation takes no more than 15 minutes. Its cooking time though is about 2 to 2 ½ hours, but this is not...

Biftekia (Greek Burgers)

I know American burgers have all the fame. I know that when someone speaks about burgers his mind goes to US. This is kind of a staple for the country. Something like croissant for French or Moussaka for Greeks or pasta for Italians. I know all that, but it is always good to approach things...

This recipe caught my attention because it included two magic words to me: no knead, very fast. I am truly sorry, but I am a working mother and as much as I wanted to do complicated and sophisticated things, usually I do not have the luxury of time. My daily schedule is so full that,...

Teriyaki Beef Snitsels

I would have missed this post, if it hadn’t been for a last minute idea. I was supposed to post about a very easy sweet, I have been making many times in the past, but my little kitchen elf did something-I have no idea what-and the sweet was a total failure. Then my son gave...
