Aubergines with Feta

Aubergines with Feta
The days at the beginning of November, in the city we live in, are this year very beautiful, mild, sunny, the vegetables at their best and all-weather or greenhouse aubergines are everywhere. Did you want a super easy and super tasty oily food, with the presence of eggplant predominantly? Follow the steps of the recipe and make this dish that we are sure you will enjoy!
I do not de-bitter Aubergines for many years. I think this process is not necessary and taste is not improving. The truth is that over time the varieties have changed, de-bitter would be much more important than it is now. Salt helps aubergines to eliminate their metallic taste, as well as part of their juices and nothing beyond that. It is more important to choose from the market aubergines without many spores, which are tasteless and hard and change their taste.
Yours!

One Pot Chocolate Cake

One Pot Chocolate Cake
It's been already nine years since it was published here for the first time this boiled cake or casserole cake, as is often said. It saw the light under the title: "Chocolate Cake, Juicy" and excited those who they enjoyed the 1st book of the Kitchen Stories «Desserts».
Today we suggest another similar version of the same cake, reinforced with some modifications/improvements through the experience and knowledge of so many years, with the addition of strong coffee in its highly chocolate syrup for the presence of cocoa and roasted hazelnut in serving, which is so perfectly combined with chocolate. It became an incredibly fluffy & juicy chocolate cake -a foam cake- perfectly soaked with cocoa syrup, similar to the previous you so loved!
Follow the detailed steps of preparing it and discover the little secrets that distinguish it from the package of similar proposals.

Lemon & Lime Marmalade-DIY

Lemon & Lime Marmalade-DIY
Lemons and limes combine to create a fantastic flavor and a beautiful color and clarity to marmalade to the stretch onto our bread and biscuits or use it in other sweet concoctions in our Kitchen, as cakes, tartes, tortes, refrigerator sweets, sweet pies etc… At the time when lemons are in abundance we make and fill jams with lemon marmalade, where many of these become gifts for friends.
Lemons, high in pectin and acid, make a great marmalade although the actual flavor of fruit and its color varies.
We use only three ingredients to make this marmalade. Lemons, sugar and water. Without having to add pectin or other perfumes. Although the recipe is simple, it takes time to carry out, but the end result is worth it!

Okra in Oil

Okra in Oil
Almost a Greek alphabet to the benefits of underestimated birmises, which take so long and so many years the remorse comments of the universe without kichch. Do not listen to the "malicious" who propagate that okra is "the shame of the vegetables" 😆😆😆🌿👌…
Just 350-400 calories -at most- has a portion of them, while breathing a hot pizza special you get 875! So do not listen to others' prejudices, cook this vegetable and enjoy it. We did not eat so much food as the taste buds of the palate dared to try and revise.
The process for their preparation, when okra is fresh, it is a little time consuming, but this contributes to their delicacy and differentiates them from the frozen.
Easy, tasty and really healthy dish!

Sun-dried Tomatoes

Sun-dried Tomatoes
Very tasty sun-dried tomatoes are made from mature regular tomatoes or from anhydrous tomatoes (a special variety of tomatoes, which is common in many islands in the Aegean Sea and resembles the Italian pomodori or roma variety). Dried under the sun they evaporate the water they contain. On drying, tomatoes lose 88% of their weight while larger tomatoes lose 93%.
Sundried tomatoes have the same nutritional value as fresh and to produce a kilo of sun dried tomatoes need about 14 kg of fresh tomatoes. They are rich in lycopene, antioxidants and vitamin C. They are preserved in sterilized jars in olive oil and various aromatic herbs and spices, like coriander & cardamom.
Sundried tomatoes have a great variety of colors, sizes and flavors. They have many uses in the Mediterranean Cuisine. Traditionally they are served with olive oil, feta cheese & basil for a very tasty meal.

Cheese Filo Triangles

Cheese Filo Triangles
Wonderful, delicious, dry without extra oils, without greasy texture, that alters their taste and appearance. Follow the instructions and you will have the tastiest triangles cheese pies. If you add them to the serving as long as they are lukewarm, with fresh thyme honey, then the flavors take off and the palate tastes a delicious flavor. Their ingredients are simple and very easy to do.
We preferred for filling the fresh Manouri this extraordinary traditional Greek cheese with its origins dating back to ancient times. It belongs to the category of soft whey cheeses and is produced mainly in Central and Western Macedonia, Thessaly and Crete, having been designated by the Greek National Milk Commission as "the most excellent traditional Greek whey cheese".
It is distinguished by its sweet and mild taste, aroma and texture. Manouri, while considered ideal for the preparation of appetizers, is widely used in a variety of hot or cold, sweet or salty, mainly dessert meals.
Here in these triangular pancakes it was perfect with the Fylo pastry sheets remaining firm, enclosing the cheese.

Fresh Peach & Black Grape Upside-Down Cake

Fresh Peach & Black Grape Upside-Down Cake
The feeling that simple is the best is almost always true when dealing with primary, fresh, excellent, seasonal ingredients. Knowing that June is the peak of the peach season, the best ingredient for a simple but impressive dessert.
Fresh, summer, dessert & juicy peaches give us the opportunity to enjoy them in many ways, primarily in sweet desserts but in savory tastes too, in drinks & smoothies or in compotes.
The cake is baked low and slowly for about 40 minutes until the surface become red-gold and sliced peaches inside softened and caramelized from the addition of the sweet Black Grape but also from brown sugar and butter. The cake itself has absorbed all the sweetness of the candy. The aroma that comes out of the oven while the cake is baked is heavenly, with sweet vanilla and syrupy-caramel peaches. The only downside to this summer's upside-down cake is that you will have to share it…
