Stuffed Pork Roll with Fruity Sauce

This is the perfect dish for Sunday’s lunch. It is a bit elaborate but the result is worth it! First time I tried this dish two years ago for Christmas I bought it ready from the supermarket’s fridge. We all liked it very much so I said that I can do it myself as well…

Greek Pies with Wild Herbs (Chortopitarakia)

This is one of my favorite dishes in Greek Cuisine! What I especially love about  living on the island of Crete is the use of wild herbs in the daily nutrition. Not only to spice the dish but also to eat as a side dish or salad. There are still a lot of women, old…

Black and White Pudding

When you think about white pudding your mind would go for sure immediately to vanilla pudding. But did you ever try to make it with white chocolate? Well, try it out and you will never ever make vanilla pudding again! Usually I do not like white chocolate. But since I tried out this recipe I…

What to do if…

This was one of those days where I skipped my plans for lunch but realized that one ingredient for my dish is missing: cream for the sauce. Saturdays is actually our fish-day at home. Actually I was planning to simply fry some fish filet and make some french fries as side dish. So I bought…

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…

Fruity Pasta Salad

This salad is really refreshing for summer. It is sweet and salty at the same time and the perfect side dish for your next BBQ. My mother used to make this salad for hot summer evenings. We all loved this salad very much and it is also a perfect party salad. What you need: 500…

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…
