The key to this recipe is that you have to completely squeeze the grated zucchini to remove the excess water, so that it does not end up being made into a soup. The rest is a simple game of synthesis of ingredients in a good, very good traditional pie sheet, to highlight the taste of a unique zucchini pie with Greek Feta & Sour Frumenty/ Trachana in Greek …

A Kourou Dough -yogurt dough- so pliable & velvety, which you will love for the comfort of its management. The pies are filled with whatever stuffing we like. Wonderful Aubergine Pies were made here, very tasty & fluffy and where the tender, grated, biscuit dough competes equally with the wonderfully delicious stuffing with eggplant and Greek cheeses, such as Gruyère & kasseri. The blue poppy seed gives them an extra click of flavor.
A suggestion for a snack for the morning coffee but also for a beer or… why not, with an easy drink and fruity wine, iced & dry Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie -the most popular variety of Italy- on our summer terrace with dear friends.
Cheers!

Fresh Apricot Clafoutis

Fresh Apricot Clafoutis
It's apricot time and I'm happy. I really love these round, juicy fruits, with the color of the sunset and the velvety skin. Few other fruits, when ripe, have such a creamy texture and strong aroma that I like to smell them with deep breaths, as if I had to store it in my memory.
I realize that there are several apricot recipes on the blog which means I always put them first when it came time… If we share the same enthusiasm came the right recipe for this year, so you can enjoy them uniquely in a delicious Clafoutis.

Healthy Banana Pancakes

Healthy Banana Pancakes
What is so special about this recipe? Well, let's start with the pancakes. They are extremely soft, light, healthy & fluffy like soft pillows! Roasted & crushed hazelnuts add a wonderful, crispy texture and the unique aroma of roasted nuts. The layers of caramelized bananas in maple syrup and brown sugar in the intermediate layers of the «tower», sometimes a little sloping to look like that of Tower of Pisa, add even more delicious, sweet and sticky flavors to these Pancakes. You just have to try them on to know what I'm talking about!
From above we decorate with whatever we like. If they are spring pancakes, we put antioxidant fruits of the forest, such as strawberries, raspberries & blueberries, which are among the superfoods, almond slivers & plenty of syrup.
Make a lot and fill, with these healthy Pancakes, children's plates with all the above and they will be amazing…

Yogurt Apple Cake

Yogurt Apple Cake
Mother was, is and will be special to the child, the teenager, the adult and today is nothing more than an opportunity to honor her and show her how much we love her.
Mother, mother, mom. Three words that enclose respect, beauty, tenderness, love and are always the most important presence in human life. An insurmountable bond that was praised more than any other, the mother was the source of inspiration for thousands of artists.
In the first verses of a poem dedicated to the mother we read:
  • «I was awakened at dawn by an aura, a breath,
  • on the cheek fluttered my mother's kiss
  • Her caress filled me with love and affection
  • and back I became a child again.
  • With a kiss and a wish and her smile,
  • As soon as I woke up I saw my sun on her face »…

Coconut Rolls

Coconut Rolls
A recent study by the Royal Roads University of Canada on nutrition in times of crisis came to some conclusions:
«Food is a carrier of the transition from normalcy to different times in real time, at the same time. This leads to a revision of key values ​​as well as processes of our busy economic and industrial society and its various branches, such as those related to food and entertainment. Above all, there is the aspect of survival, the realization that man is no longer dominant and, to talk about the purely practical part of food, there is a need to save resources, using all the materials at our disposal. Cooking is one of the things that connects us to natural living systems and food is something that connects us, on a deeper level, to the Earth itself».
So many people, being confined to their home, make their own food every day and pastry products have the dominant say with daily and better daily bread.
The recipe we suggest today is one of these tender doughs like brioche, is sweet, fluffy and soft buns, stuffed with dried coconut and bathed, while still hot, with sweetened condensed milk. Yours!
