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!

Its grilling season!

I’m so excited! This is the first day that I’ve been able to get outside and start grilling. I made some chicken, pork chops, and beef tenderloin seasoned with lemon and oregano. Is anyone else grilling this summer? 😎


How to spruce up your leftover keftedes!

I always find myself having leftover meatballs or keftedes need a bit of sprucing up the next day. What I like to do is make a tomato sauce with wine, and heat up the meatballs with the sauce so that they soak it up and don't stay dry. This is the recipe for the sauce

- sauté one onion and two garlic cloves with olive oil
- add half a jar of tomato paste
-add cumin, black pepper, ground clove and basil
-after all the spices have been cooked, add one cup of red wine
-once the wine is bubbling, add one jar of tomato sauce
-cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat

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!
