Baklava

May 5, 2014 by Zoe Vlachos - in Dessert

WARNING!!! HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! The flavours and textures of baklava make this dessert dangerous to those (like myself) with very little self control when sweets are involved!  You will LOVE this easy recipe!

revithosoupa

Revithosoupa is a hearty soup, bursting with flavours.  If you are looking to increase your legume intake, Chickpeas, (otherwise referred to as Garbanzo beans) are a great, healthful option!   These little beans are a fantastic way to support the digestive system, as they are a great source of  fibre!  They are also a wonderful way to help regulate […]

Amygdalota (pronounced ahh-meeg-thalota), are tasty gluten free almond macaroon cookies. They make a great treat! I enjoy Amygdalota with Greek coffee, and my kids enjoy dunking them into their glasses of milk. They have a crunchy exterior, chewy centre and wonderful orange essence. Serving: Makes 25 cookies at approx. 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough each […]

You will love this rustic, fragrant dish of rich succulent red wine braised lamb, with mushrooms. It’s quick and easy to prepare and yet looks very fancy and time consuming; making this dish one of my  favourite dinner party meals!  Mashed or roasted potatoes taste great alongside this great meat dish. Servings: 6

Cheese Saganaki is a loved appetizer/meze, that never fails to satisfy the palette! Saganaki is actually the name of the small two handled skillet that several Greek dishes are cooked in,  like shrimp saganaki and mussel saganaki. Cheese Saganaki or “Flaming Cheese” is the most famous of the saganaki dishes in North America, with the […]
