Greek Custard Pie with Sirup-Galaktoboureko

Greek Custard Pie with Sirup-Galaktoboureko
How does it stand out and how do you make a good Galaktoboureko?
Everything plays its role, even the size or material of the baking pan, the quality & quantity of its ingredients, the buttering, the time, the baking, and the syrup as much as are equally important to the success of the dessert. My version is «cold syrup hot sweet».
Please follow the step-by-step steps below and make this excellent Galaktoboureko all-weather, craving & disposition. A sweet passepartout that is!
Yours!

Tart with Lemon Cream & Blueberries

Tart with Lemon Cream & Blueberries
The Blueberry is a "source of eternal youth" because it prevents the formation of free radicals responsible for skin aging. Many studies show that Blueberries have the highest antioxidant activity than other fruits, offering protection from the "oxidative" attack that the body receives due to aging, infections and exposure to aggravating environmental & nutritional factors, such as cigarette smoke, atmospheric pollutants, toxins, carcinogenic compounds, etc.
In this Sweet Tart the fresh Blueberries were combined with the aroma of lemon and the sheet of crust, was folded in the shape of an accordion, where inside the folded sheets nested a simple cream with eggs & cream well beaten.

Pulled Pork with Pappardelle

Pulled Pork with Pappardelle
Succulent, juicy, mouth-watering pork chunk simmers in the pressure cooker until tender and falling off the bone. It gets its wonderful color and incomparable taste from the spices alone.
Its only ingredient is, apart from the spices, a single grated tomato, so as to balance, with its acidity, the sweet notes of the spices.
It pairs perfectly with pappardelle, sprinkled generously with grated cheese of our choice to enjoy the best home-cooked Italian meal.
We are sure you will love this ★family recipe, which we recommend to you today.

Cheese Pie Cream

Cheese Pie Cream
In Greek Traditional Cuisine, one finds many different types of pie, which vary by region, so each region in Greece has its own traditional pie as a point of reference. Sometimes they are the main appetizer or a tasty and healthy snack during the day!

With many variations, different ingredients, a different way of serving and many different names, pies are a characteristic traditional delicacy in every corner of our country. Savory or sweet, with or without foil, round, triangular, simple or complex, traditional pies are a big chapter in Greek Gastronomy.

Besides the variations in the sheet - fresh handmade sheet or ready-made sheet or even without a sheet - there is a wide variety of sheets, some thin and transparent and others thicker. Some pies are prepared with several layers of sheets in the pan and a mixture is thrown inside them, such as spinach, cheese, various greens or vegetables. The variety of pie filling has no limits. You only need your imagination and the pure and fresh ingredients of each place. In addition to the classic pie with cheese or greens, you can put meat, sausages, vegetables, frumenty, pasta and whatever else you want in the filling!

Lemony Cream Cake!

Lemony Cream Cake!
This creamy Cake/Birthday Cake, which is deliciously fluffy and musky lemon, filled with traditional goat's yogurt combined with Domokou katiki (like ricotta), gave us pleasant tasting -but also festive- moments.
The lemony cream inside, with intense acidic tones, is sandwiched between 2 layers of crumbly dough mixture, which makes it very special and wonderfully delicious. The almond fillet enhances its taste and appearance. It's barely sweet because that's our choice, so we accompany it with a sweet red wine.
We liked it doubly because we had in mind to enjoy it during the holidays, so we named it "Birthday Cake" in honor of the birthday person…

Cake with Yogurt, Olive Oil & Jam

Cake with Yogurt, Olive Oil & Jam Κέικ με Γιαούρτι, Ελαιόλαδο & Μαρμελάδα, Αφράτο Κέικ
A very fluffy cake, very special without many eggs, with yogurt and olive oil. It is one of the cakes that have the name "Sponge Cake" (without referring to the well-known sponge cake, which has other ingredients and a different way of making it), for the reason that it is really so soft & fluffy.
On its surface is added extra yogurt and jam - any jam we like - which, by stirring them lightly with a toothpick, partially sinks into the interior of the cake during baking and makes it delicious and moist. Try this easy & perfectly fluffy cake.
Yours!
