Chocolate Chip Cookies

The first time I tried to make these cookies, the final result was one huge cookie over the baking paper. This time I got them right, and I don't know if that's a good thing because they are so delicious that you can't stop eating them. Chewy and soft. Perfect, in one word.

The fluffiest pancakes on earth. They are so good that I could have them every morning, literally. Topped with some maple syrup and butter, or with some jam, or honey. Anything you like.

Pesto Empanadas

Cheesy, spicy, delicious. A perfect breakfast.  The recipe I found was with minced meat, but white cheese filling was my choice. Basil-cheese combination....perfect.

Baked Aubergines with Minced Meat (Papucaki)


My dad's favorite meal and a regular meal in our family. It's a Greek and Turkish dish made of aubergines filled with minced meat and covered with delicious sauce on top. Fairly easy to make and well worth the effort.

Dutch Pancakes

It's the the blackberries season and we are lucky to have some blackberry bushes in our garden.

 I picked some this morning, and the first idea I got was... pancakes. But I wanted to make something different so I decided for this German version of a pancake. Something between a pancake, omelette and popover. It's fluffy, light and tasty.

Cheese Puffs

cheese puffs

Light, airy cheese puffs..... that's always a good idea. I got the idea to make this recipe while on holiday in Greece this summer. The fried cheese balls are part of the Greek cuisine and they make them very often. I don't know if I have mentioned, but I love Greek food. Starting with the olive oil, the gyro and everything else :)
