Ladolemono is a standard Greek marinade that is made of olive oil, lemon, and usually garlic, any herbs that you like (usually oregano) and then salt and pepper. I use it mainly for all meats and potatoes, boiled vegetables like cauliflower, beets, and broccoli. Its very light and refreshing and one of the healthiest dressings and marinades that you can use. When you potatoes with it in the oven, you can always add a little water to better cook the potatoes until they are fork tender. Let me know some other great uses!

I use this to make souvlaki. I make a big batch of ladolemono and then marinate the meat in it overnight. Makes it succulent and helps prevent the grilling process from drying out the meat.

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.

Strawberry covered ekmek kadaïfi

This dessert is one of the best I’ve ever made! It’s a simple ekmek kadaïfi recipe that I found from google and I topped it off with pistachios and strawberries. It tastes just as good as it tastes.

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? 😎


What are your favorite flavors of Greek ice cream?

Personally, I have to say baklava or kaïmaki. For those of you that haven’t tried kaïmaki, I highly recommend it. It’s a traditional Greek ice cream made from masticha. You can find it at most Greek grocery stores and ice cream stores. What is your favorite Greek ice cream flavor?
