Green detox smoothie

So today in Italy is the end of the holiday season. We must wait until April for Easter…can’t believe it! As always, as every year let’s be honest, one of the main purposes is to eat less during Christmas. But seriously, ho can it be possible? Sorrounded by the best food both from Italy and…

Porcini risotto #2017

So here we are. Happy 2017! I feel so thrilled like never before for this new year beginning. I have a lot of new projects, a new collaboration starting soon in Milan in the food sector. I am fully committed in eating healthy and going to the gym regularly and most of all my motto…

Happy birthday Mum – choco cake

For me Christmas is such a difficult time of the year…food..is EVERYWHERE. Not only do I eat on Christmas eve, on Christmas day, the second day of Christmas we eat the leftovers…on the 27th it’s my mum’s bday so…food again. And with food more presents of course. Every year I bake a special cake, different…

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…

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…

Raw avocado cake

Sometimes I have new obsessions. I had the cake design time, when I was baking from morning to evening, decorating, cutting fondant and so on. Then came the smoothie obsession (still ongoing I must admit). Then sandwich and quick and easy meals for office lunch. Now I have this new one, which is definitely the…

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…

Origano Rome – Feeling at home

The first week of 2016 I have spent almost twenty days living in a hotel. It was quite weird I have to admit. But in the end I was lucky enough to find a nice place, clean and in one of the best neighbourhoods in Rome: Campo de’ Fiori. While working hard all day long…

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…

Rome my fav spots

Yes I have stopped blogging in order to move to Rome. Why? Because I worked nearly 12 hours per day in a communication agency. Rome has been an amazing adventure, both thrilling both scary for some reasons. I moved there, lived 1 month in a two star hotel, I’ve met great people but I also…

Vegan indian apple pie

Hello November! In Grecia abbiamo l’abitudine di augurarci “buon mese” appena inizia. Una cosa bellissima secondo me, come sempre augurare qualcosa di bello e la felicità a qualcuno dovrebbe essere una buona abitudine ma so che se augurassi “buon mese” ai miei amici italiani mi guarderebbero un pò storto. E novembre è entrato con alcune…
