Homemade phyllo dough it's not for those who are in a pinch. It takes quite some time, and it really taste best if you have the highest quality ingredients. I like to make it every once in a while when I have a bit of extra time and I really want to impress my friends and family. This recipe can be used for sweet and savoury dishes and I recommend using a touch of butter if you want to make it for sweet dishes. The olive oil that you use is really important, it's best to use extra-virgin olive oil that is made for cooking and not for salads and dressings. Certain types of olive oil will make your dish a little bit bitter. Please let me know if you try this out, I'm a huge fan of making things from scratch!



It can be time consuming but one gets used to it. Also, homemade phyllo dough gives the dish a special, unique quality. For me, it's the ultimate comfort food!

What should I put in my Greek seasoning blend?

I always love to make homemade seasoning blends because it’s so much cheaper and I can control exactly how much sodium is in the seasoning blend.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Is it easy to eat gluten free in Greece?

My husband has a gluten allergy and it’s been pretty difficult traveling and eating gluten free. There have been many cases where people tell us that something is gluten free and it’s actually not, and he ends up having an allergic reaction. Is anyone gluten free and has traveled around Greece? How difficult was it and can you share a bit about your experience?

What is the best Greek food to sneak in vegetables for kids?

My kids absolutely hate eating vegetables and I am always looking for ways to sneak in more and more vegetables. Does anyone have good Greek dish recommendations that have vegetables that don't taste too strong? Or existing recipes where I can add small pieces of veggies? I would really appreciate it, I am not the best chef but I am trying to switch it up these days and keep things healthy!

How to make thick and creamy Santorini fava!

Santorini fava is a classic staple in Santorini cuisine, and it has spread all over Greece. The dish is very simple to make, and taste even better when you use high-quality ingredients like Greek olive oil. It is a very budget friendly meal, and can stay in the fridge for a few days without going bad. It can get a bit dry so I suggest squeezing some lemon and adding a bit more olive oil if you're going to eat it over the course of a few days. Here is how you make it:
