I haven’t met yet any housewife that doesn’t pray to have some no fail recipes that come handy. Some times there is so little time to prepare dinner for friends and family and those three easy to make recipes is all you’ll ever need. I’m the proud mother of two teenage boys (16,5 & 15 years old). Sometimes, a fully packed fridge just isn’t enough not even for breakfast! My husband❣️ is such an easy going person when it comes to food! BUT, he also has to eat…Everyday!😨!!!!That means I have to cook every day!!! There are some “unwritten” rules in our home. After so many years of living together we know our likes and dislikes! For example, the day we’re having, let’s say, lentils for lunch, there’s this “silent mutual consent” that we’ll have SOMETHING ELSE for dinner! I’ m not the kind of mom that cooks twice a…

Imagine this! You’ re standing somewhere near Syntagma Square in need for some rest, after a long walk under the athenian sun. Best thing to do is to take a coffee break… the Greek way! Coffee the greek way? What does this mean? All it means is that we Greeks drink coffee taking our time! It’s almost a ritual. Going out for coffee usually has nothing to do with “sipping” the actual product. The real meaning behind it is to catch up with loved ones, talk about almost everything, analyze politics and sometimes never actually drink coffee! Some other times, coffee leads to wine or and then to “meze” and then…anything can happen! So, coffee break is about relaxing, socializing and spent meaningful time with friends or colleagues. “Coffee culture” is very appreciated in Greece! There are many coffee shops to enjoy your break in Athens. High quality coffee, exceptional…

This is a recipe I love! It  has made my life easy and my family very happy! I will share with you the quickest recipe ever, so that you can have the tastiest bread in 90 minutes! Reading time: 6 min I grew up with two mothers from Epirus, the little known paradise of NW Greece.   There is a “King” of eating habits up there called pies! So, mastering the “dough” is vital. I could talk for hours and hours, naming feelings of my childhood when I was covered in flour while baking delicious pies with my aunt Mahi!   Feelings of joy, creativity, love, easiness…!I was a very lucky girl to have tasted such delicious pies in my life! I came to adore any kind of dough, bread included!   Everyday life though,leaves me no time for handmade bread.   My kids are eating bread from the bakery store.…

Last Saturday I became a “special tourist”! SPECIAL TOURIST??? What’s that? I was a wine tourist at Nemea in Peloponnese. I visited Lafazanis’ Winery in Ancient Kleones. I ‘ve never been a wine tourist before in my life. I have never participated in any kind of special touristic activity before, apart from the “rebel-tourism” of my youth! Since you showed up to my blog, which is a great honor for me, let me give you some useful information. According to the Encyclopedia of Tourism of 2016, and in my own translation (please keep that in mind, I‘m not a native speaker-I do my best): Special interest tourism is any kind of entertainment trip on which the targeted activity dominates and determines the selection of the destination From this point of view, I was a Wine tourist last Weekend. Our trip was specifically organized to visit Lafazanis’ winery…

It’s the 2nd of February today and Christianity celebrates Candlemas! But my world, celebrates Suzette, the most perfect orange crepe ! You are probably wondering what came to me and suddenly Christianity is a subject for today’s post, but whoever knows me already sees behind the lines! I know very little about Christian habits and celebrations (I prefer astrophysics). Moreover, some of you already know how ridiculous I believe is the fact that every day of the year is dedicated to something, anything! Important Notice! Nothing ridiculous about the days that serve social and health purposes in order to support people in need! But, let’s avoid  being extremely serious  and come back to the main subject here – The Crepe!!! Today not only Christianity but the whole world should be celebrating the one and only French Crepe! Yeah! Clap your hands in the air!! But how on earth…
