Jumbo Shells with Spinach Filling

Summer has arrived in Greece and has settled for good. The temperature yesterday rose to 30° C. I wish I could be in beach swimming and sun-bathing. Instead, I continue my everyday routine. Anyway, summer vacations will come eventually. Until then I am trying to do things to accelerate my mood. Just like cooking for...

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...

Macaroni and Cheese my Way

Although this recipe started just as any other recipe it then became an adventure. I found this recipe in Smitten Kitchen. Originally this recipe comes from Martha Stewart. Yesterday, I just wanted something light, because my husband suffered from stomach ache and, as I went through my recipe folders, my eyes fell on this one....

Pork Tenderloin au Gratin

Trying to find something new to serve your family every weekend can be a very tricky business. The expectations are very high and I must prove them right. I always search for inspiration in magazines or internet or any other source possible. In this case, I found this recipe in a Greek magazine a very...

Spaghetti Bolognese

 To be honest with you, I feel a little embarassed posting this recipe. The reason is that, this is a very easy meal for me and a comfort food for my family. I believe all families have meals like that and all of you have meals that are easy and comforting. The only reason I...
