Christmas Mood
Roast Chicken with Christmas spices
This homemade Roast Chicken will look so fantastic on your Christmas table. If you are not keen on turkey for Christmas make this buttery chicken, roasted within the aromas of Christmas spices and fresh oranges.
Melomakarona with Olive Oil & Honey
The most traditional and my personal favorite Christmas sweet made with olive oil and honey. There are so many “Melomakarona” recipes. What I like in this one, is that no sugar is added, plus I don’t need a mixer.
No sugar Oatmeal Cookies with tahini
Easy and quick to make, with three only ingredients, without butter and sugar, full of protein and very very healthy. One thing is for sure; you are going to make those cookies all year long.
Turkey Fillet with Ouzo in Parchment
If you don’t have a whole team available to help you preparing the christmas turkey, this is the recipe. Very very easy, plus you can prepare everything from the previous evening and keep them in your fridge. The juices coming out from the mushrooms and the greens, make the turkey soft and tender.
No flour "Melomakarona" with tahini
This recipe is made for my friend Maria, who is diagnosed with celiac disease. I met her again, while I was in Athens, and I gifted her a metallic box filled with my homemade gluten free melomakarona.
Chocolate cookies with Rosemary
Cooking like a Mediterranean means using herbs to give flavor and aroma to your creations. Rosemary is my favorite herb, but this is the first time I used it to make something sweet.
The Greek Traditional Walnut Pie
The easiest Karidopita or Karydopita ever! The ultimate Greek dessert. Pair with a scoop of ice cream.
Chocolate Prunes stuffed with almond
Perfect to satisfy your kids sweet tooth, healthy to use as a full of energy after school snack, and ideal to help your kids with constipation problems. And as always…very very easy.
Kourambiethes - Greek butter cookies
Cookies with a delicious toasted almond crunch, coated in lots of icing sugar. At my husband’s birthplace (the area of Kavala Northen-East Greece), kourambies in enjoyed throughout the year, and this area is known for the most highly aromatic and fluffy Kourambiethes.
