Christmas cake – chocolate & orange

This year is almost over and I can’t believe it. The past 12 months have been like an hurricane for me. I gave up my job after my studies in public relations. I moved twice: Rome and then Milan again. I said so many NO and so many YES. I felt in love, I broke…

Working in a restaurant…the awful truth

Updating the blog in the last months has been almost impossible…I spent the whole day working, about 12hours per day in the evening. It has been crazy and I felt so bad…walking no stop for half a day, with no rest is so damn difficult and my body sent signals that “hey girl time to…

Summer colours – baked eggplants

Summer is here! I am so thrilled. Even if this would be the first year with no summer vacations it doesn’t matter so much as I am back in Milan, doing the job I have always wanted… I will have time to rest later. And in the end Milan is so full of nice places…

Beer Muffins GF

Starting something new can be so adventurous, challenging and interesting but so, so incredibly difficult. No time to eat, sleep enough or even go out with friends and colleagues. But when you grow up, and believe me you start growing up when you have to take your own decisions as I did while ago, having…

Vegan moussaka – Greek

One thing I always repeat is that “Great changes are always preceded by chaos”. Well, this time it is quite different. I have decided to take my own decision without waiting for any change, I made my own change. I decided that life will bring the plans I am creating. Enough waisted time waiting and…

Gluten Free gnocchi

I am totally in love with gluten free pasta. I have not a a celiac disease but when I eat too much wheat products (especially pizza or pasta) I feel like I have eaten soooo much! I have noticed it a couple of years since now and in the beginning I thought it was because…

Happy Birthday – Beer choco cake

So here I am. Happy bday to me. I turned 30 yesterday and I must admit it is a strange feeling, like you’re entering the adult age but at the same time you can dream as if you’re still in your twenties. Turning 30 has been strange. I was dreaming of having a big party…

Lagana – Greek flatbread

I know I am terribly late. I wrote this post on Sunday and almost a week has passed. Somedays I wake up with an urgent need to write (whatever, even a to-do list) but other days are so slow and I cannot even think about writing. Here is a recipe for the Lagana, a flat…

Greek choco cake – vegan

Monday, oh no not you again. This week end has been so rainy that Monday couldn’t be different. Rainy, foggy, still cold. I am waiting spring to come, flowers to be ready, parks to be full of people running or having pic nics. That’s my favorite season of the year. While dreaming of a nice…

Fasolakia Yiahni -Green Beans

I am so much into Greek food these last weeks. It is like I am trying to re-discover my origins, to find my Greek roots. And food has always played a major role in my family. I still remember yia-yia (grandma) chopping onions, cooking meat or spanakorizo (rice with fresh spinach) or preparing desserts with…

Roasted chickpeas salad with halloumi cheese

Yes I must admit it. I have a true obsession on halloumi lately. I found this salty cheese in Rome and now that I’m back home I have take almost ten packs of it with me, putting them into my luggage on the train (and hoping they won’t break otherwise the salty water will have…
