I love these cookies! All you need to do is add tahini and sugar to a large mixing bowl and cream together on medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the cardamom and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. Slowly add the water and orange juice and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth and sticky.
  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

How to make avgolemono so you can put it on everything

Avgolemono can be put on literally everything!! I like to put it on gemista and dolmadakia :) This is how you make it

Ingredients: 1-2 cups broth or pan juices from the dish for which you are making avgolemono, 2 eggs, Juice of 1-2 lemons

Gradually beat in a spoonful at a time of hot broth until the mixture is very warm. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the pot with the rest of the hot broth and stir continuously until the sauce thickens slightly. Do not allow to boil because it will cook the eggs and the sauce will separate.

And this is what it looks like

What is more traditional? Dolmades (grape leaves) or lahanodolmades?

Is either of them more traditional? I would like to try making one of them this weekend :)

Are there any Greek desserts without nuts?

My dear friend has a nut allergy, and I noticed that there are so many Greek cookies and desserts with nuts!! Do you have any advice?

Greek fries are the best for a get together!

I like to buy frozen fries and make these at home in the oven by sprinkling some feta on top!!! So easy and too good :)

How to make Greek artichoke salad!

First, remove the tough outer leaves of the artichokes and cut off part of the stems. Cut off about 1 inch from the tips. Cut artichokes in half lengthwise and scoop out the choke. Drop into boiling salted water seasoned with the juice of one lemon and one tablespoon olive oil. You may also roast the artichokes in the oven as shown in the picture . Cook for 30 minutes or until tender. Serve with a dressing of 1/2 cup olive oil and 4 tablespoons lemon juice, which is about the juice of 1 lemon. This is a super simple recipe and its not like your typical "salad." A salad in Greece can just be marinated vegetables.
