Salmon Filet with Spinach and Feta Cheese

You won’t believe it but salmon filet and spinach goes very well together, as well as spinach and Feta cheese. All three together are most delicious! For this dish I prefer frozen salmon filets. As the potatoes take long time to cook the cooking time of the frozen fish corresponds better than the fresh. I…

Tiramisu without egg

I just found one last Mascapone cup in my fridge and I thought: “Let’s make a Tiramisu” for dessert!” It is one of our favorite Italian desserts, but to be honest, I do not like the fact that uncooked eggs are used in the original recipe. If the egg is not absolutely fresh, you know…

To Peel or Not To Peel – this is the question!

Preparing my Fruity Pasta Salad for lunch today I stumbled over this question. I love to watch cooking shows of all kinds on TV: to get new ideas, to see how professional cooks prepare something or to laugh about the unintentional stupidest of non-professionals. I am sure all of us sometimes think we could do…

First Thing First – or maybe not?

I think it is about time to write something about myself. Usually you should do this before you start, but I was quiet enthusiastic to start my new blog. Until November 2014 I was the owner of a site called “Eat Good Live Good – cooking without flavor enhancers” – yes, the same title as…

Sweet and Sour Sauce

Who does not love pork or chicken sweet and sour when you go to a Chinese restaurant! Nowadays you can find ready sauce in the supermarkets around the corner. But can you be really sure that they do not use some kind of preservatives even if they say so! I am often wondering how cooked…

Octopus Salad

In Greek cuisine one of my favorite dishes is octopus salad. Octopus is an inherit part during feasting time as strictly religious people do not even eat fish during this time but still are allowed to eat sea food like octopus, clams, mussels or shrimps. My son and I always fight about the octopus salad….

Homemade Ice Cream

Summer is here and it is about time to make my homemade ice cream! Kids love ice cream – and my kids especially my homemade one. It is easy to make and you do not necessarily need an ice machine. I simple make it in the deep freezer. But this way it is a little…

Stuffed Vine Leaves (Dolmades)

I believe in Greek kitchen preparing stuffed vine leaves is the highest art of cooking – if you know how to do them! I have tried a lot of Dolmades until now, but Mama Marikas’, my beloved mother-in-law, is making the very best you’ll ever get. 86 years of age by now she still wakes…
