About Me
Now that the children are grown up, I can try more adventurous recipes & ingredients without having to worry if the kids will like it! My husband and I are no longer in a rut with nightly meals and we enjoy trying different recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Of course I like to bake all kinds of goodies, but I especially like to entertain and cook wonderful appetizers and entrees for our guests.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything Greek-since I am Greek and my Yia Yia taught me how to cook Greek food from the young age of 7. Happily, my husband has acquired a taste for Greek food!
My cooking triumphs
If it's edible and yummy, it's a triumph!!! I like to both bake and cook.
My cooking tragedies
Now that I'm semi-retired, I have more time to spend in the kitchen and I've found I can focus more on my cooking skills! Husband really appreciates all the new dishes I've been making from AR!
