Greek Squid (Soupies)
About this Cook
I'm a medicine student and i love to cook! Apart from just messing around in the kitchen when my mom was cooking, and licking spoons, i really started cooking when i moved away from home at 17 to study. Now i'm hooked.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies and cupcakes and all things pretty! Plus greek and cypriot foods... where i come from, people sure know how to eat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There is no possible way my family's cooking traditions would fit here :) Anyone seen "my big fat greek wedding"? Well, to me and my family it was funny because most of it was true!
My cooking triumphs
Every time my family or friends moan over my food is considered a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Don't ask! Let me just say a few words(each one describing a different occasion, mind you): fire, explosion, tears.

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies
I used lemon extract, plus zest and a squeeze of lemon juice. I also added a tablespoon of poppy seeds and the combination was amazing. Lovely recipe, I really liked it.

Pretty Pomegranate Salad
I leave out the mandarin, add some parmesan flakes and balsamic vinegar/cream and it's delicious.

Sugar and Spice Muffins
How can this recipe have so many good reviews? I followed the directions exactly, and they came out very bland. They weren't awful or anything, just no distincitive taste, no pretty texture, nothing. I can sure use my ingredients for something more impressive and tasty than this.
