Lagana (Greek Flat Bread)

Just before I start talking about my yet another bread adventure, I can’t help but sharing some thoughts regarding this catastrophe in Japan.

Coca-Cola Chicken Breasts

Sometimes I think my mom was years ahead in cooking. As I was browsing the internet I saw a recipe in Steamy Kitchen for cola glazed wings made by Virginia Willis and I remembered the first time we ate coca-cola glazed pork chops. Twenty years ago, when there was no internet and surely not so...

Spinach Crepes

I woke up this morning and that was the view from my bedroom window. For a moment it was like a de ja vu moment in my life. I felt like when I was years back in New Hampshire and I was watching the snow from my apartment’s window. Is this March or January? I...

Waffles with Melted Chocolate

Chocolate Charlotte with Rum

Valentine’s Day is approaching fast. When I was younger, I expected from my boyfriend the full package; flowers, gift, card and of course a romantic night out for dinner. As I was growing up, I realized that this day is a little bit overestimated. The florists make special flower compositions for the day, which charge...
