What follows is (I hope) a comprehensive list of recipes on this site. I did not want to double-list things, so keep that in mind. There may be a beef dish under pasta (because it’s mainly a pasta dish) or a shrimp recipe under appetizers, or…you get the drift. If you are looking for something specific, Ctrl+F is your friend!

Hi! I think you have aproblem with the Vasilopita link. I know it is off season but the need will come!


elly July 28, 2009 at 6:52 am

Hi Ioanna – I fixed the link! Sorry about that.


Stephanie November 17, 2009 at 6:24 am


I am a friend of your Aunt Donna & Uncle Jim. I love cooking & Donna emailed me you link. LOVE your blog. I can’t wait to try your recipes. There are so many that I have never seen in any of the Greek cookbooks I have read. One request: rice pudding! Your Uncle Jim makes the best, but won’t share the recipe with me. The stinker! The writing & recipes are nicely organized & worded. Maybe a cookbook is in your future!!! Keep up the great work!


elly November 17, 2009 at 8:09 am

Thanks for stopping by, Stephanie! My dad gave me his rice pudding recipe (well, tried to, he had to scale it down from restaurant proportions) a while ago but I haven’t had a chance to make it. I’ll try it out soon!


Stephanie November 18, 2009 at 7:01 am

How exciting! Donna told me I should try to get it out of him with Ouzo #12! I’d prefer not to have to go the Ouzo route……I may not survive! Thanks


Amanda Spiro December 2, 2009 at 9:46 pm


I just attempted your recipe for Patates Fournou and it came out great. I just need to cut the potatoes a little thinner next time to ensure the flavor reaches the middle.


orlando seo July 4, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Great stuff, Just passed this on to a coworker who read up on this and she took me to dinner after I showed her this blog. So, Thanks!!


Emily September 14, 2010 at 7:51 am

Do you have a recipe for Imam Baldi (spelling?)? I love this dish!


elly September 14, 2010 at 8:56 am

Hi Emily. I don’t, but check out the blog Kalofagas. I’m pretty certain he has one posted.


Emily September 28, 2010 at 7:41 am

Found it! Thanks!

Alice February 10, 2011 at 8:50 am

Oh and the fact that’s it’s already scaled down for 2 servings is perfect for us! My husband always complains about the MONSTROUS serving sizes I cook up when I do decide to front the kitchen.

Christina Kazadzis September 8, 2011 at 10:08 am

Elly, I stumbled across your blog while looking for a variation of a lamb giouvetsi recipe and fell in love with your style of writing. Based on what I’ve read, our personalities and tastes seem to be very much alike that it made me laugh. I then looked at all your Greek recipes to compare them with my own (handed down and tweaked over the years) and found we have the same recipes! I’m a professional makeup artist by trade, but in the kitchen 3-4 times per week whipping up something, so I look forward to following your blog for creative inspirations. Harika, kai kalo mina.


elly September 8, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Thanks for stopping by, Christina. :)


julie campbell January 25, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Hello, just came across your recipes and have put them on my favourites, what a range,I love to cook and eat and will certainly try out many of your ideas, thank you


T February 26, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Your recipes all look delicious! I’m really excited to try the cheesy creamy garlicky rice with spinach. Thanks so much for posting all of these!


Anne Chaconas-Clink March 3, 2012 at 8:43 pm

Just came across your blog and love it. Thanks for sharing all your recipes, especially the Greek ones! I love to cook & bake and am always comparing our family’s Greek recipes with ones from other regions . I have to say, I am kind of surprised you don’t have a recipe for Tsoureki on here. I make it often and have shared the recipe with a couple of friends who have had no problem “tackling” it. ;)


Ronda November 24, 2012 at 6:43 pm

I was an exchange student in Greece. My mama made a delicious chicken and spaghetti dish with tomatoes and sauce. I cannot find the recipe anywhere…..I love keftedes and thank you very much for the recipe. Also mama made the Ravani cake for my birthday. Oh so yummy. I also love fasolaki (green beans) and would like the Greek recipe. I love your blog and will come back and visit often.



elly November 25, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Ronda, I make my green beans like this okra.
You can try something like this for the spaghetti, omitting the potatoes: Or I have manestra/hilopites recipes posted that you could adapt to chicken as well.

So surprised you don’t have a kouludia recipe! I often look at your recipes and compare them to mine. I wanted to compare the amount of baking powder in the kouludia but I don’t see one. I love your youvarlakia and pastichio. Thanks for your recipes

I know, Susan, I really need to get one on here. My grandma makes them in such mass quantities that I tend to freeze them and never run out/have a need to make them myself, hah.

This blog is awesome! I’m obsessed with good food blogs and I’m also a fellow Greek so I was super excited to come across yours! I plan on making your tyrokafteri tonight :)
