About this Cook
I live in the suburbs of Athens. I love cooking for my family and friends. I enjoy cooking for my sons and their friends and love to see them eating hungry as wolves after they come back from their swimming in the summer!
My favorite things to cook
I like making greek pies, (tyropita and spanakopita) with my home made fyllo pastry, my famous mousaka (eggplant layers, ground meet, cheese and besamel sauce)greek stew (stifado), and many others. I love many different cuisines and I like to experiment with dishes from all over the world. Italian cuisine is my favorite. A simple spagetti with tomato sauce and a glass of red wine is on top of my list!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's favorite is the Christmas stuffed turkey with chestnuts, ground meat pine nuts and rice, and the Easter roasted lamb on a spit, which it takes place in my Village in the high mountains of Arcadia.
My cooking triumphs
My spinach pie and my Christmas Greek cookies, kourabiedes.
My cooking tragedies
A potroast that I burned to the point that I threw away together with the pot!!

Basic Corn Muffins
I just made these muffins, they are absolutely delicious and very easy to make. I like the simplicity of them and the healthy ingredients. I used corn oil, as canola does not exist here, and brown sugar instead of white. This recipe is a keeper, thanks.

Butternut Squash Soup II
I made butternut squash soup for the first time using this recipe and the results were excellent. I did not use butter as I always cook with olive oil and the taste was incredible. I also added some nutmeg for extra flavor. This soup is so rich with taste, its a complete nutritious meal. Thank you for this healthy and satisfying recipe.

Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach
I love this combination of mushrooms and spinach. This recipe is very tasty, healthy and easy. The only change I made is I substituted the butter with olive oil and added some sun dried tomatoes for extra taste. I served it on top of some farfalle pasta, it was incredible! I would though recommend to double the amount of mushrooms, as two are hardly enough for 4 servings.
