Read about our farewell lunch.
Sumptuous salad inspo.
This Greek style lasagna is a well-loved and popular dish with Greeks, worldwide. We often eat it here for special occasions for Sunday lunch with all the family. I love my Auntie Loulla of Kosmos Restaurant's recipe below.
We love Pancake Day in this family but to be honest Papa G has a penchant for pancakes all year long; I distinctly remember treat breakfasts of piles of pancakes growing up and my Dad teaching my brother and I how to make the perfect pancake.
Buffets and carpet picnics ROCK in this house and these mini baguette feasts are favourites with my husband and I and our kids too.
This rather egg-cellent dish is my Mediterranean open omelette!
I adore my Big Fat Greek Family-I don't know where I'd be without them- we are one loving, (pretty) loud, food-loving family and hosting a Sunday lunch to celebrate them and treat them to a delicious feast from Iceland was a joy.
I eat meat once a month on average and love Greek style lamb kofta.
Tzatziki is a healthy, refreshing dip mostly served as meze (part of several Greek courses) using crusty bread or pitta bread to dip in but it can be enjoyed alone as a snack.
I'm so lucky to have amazing ladies in my life-true friends who are bold, bright, damn right beautiful but also, most importantly, kind, generous in spirit, and super-sisterly. You can't ask for more than that in life from your mates, can you?!
Last Saturday night saw me pretend I was 21 again as I celebrated my cousin Georgia's 21st.
Oh the wonderful weekend, where did it go? It feels so long ago now and it's only Tuesday, and I'm missing running through russet fields at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and breathing in that crisp autumnal air, squinting at sunlight filtering through the trees.
I literally can't believe my baby boy, Xander turned 3 on Sunday, my charming, loveable, second born son is simply growing up too quickly and I'd like it to stop, STOP I tell you- I want him to remain my baby always, and I suppose he always will be just that, my littlest, youngest love.
This is a super refreshing salad that makes me think of summer whatever the weather (looks outside at the rain).
What did the cheese say to itself in the mirror? Halloumi
This week's Tasty Tuesdays recipe is this moreish Mediterranean Platter. Simple, quick and easy, it's a refreshing, tasty lunch now summer is nearly here.
This is quite honestly the best rice dish in the world. A good friend of mine actually travelled the world tasting rice (and you know, holidaying) and she concluded that there's no rice quite as delicious the Olive Tree Greek Restaurant's rice so who am I to disagree. Well who am I? The owners' daughter of course-so you see disagreeing isn't an option. It is amazing though. Papa G's rice with vermicelli is incredible, crunchy, buttery, light-absolutely the perfect side dish.
This weekend saw us ensure 'passportgate' never happens again with a trip to very lush Liverpool, one of our favourite cities in the UK, to submit and order Oliver's new passport (yay)! Gloriously sunny for the most part it was ice creams at the docks and some shopping in my favourite city of style, with new jeans and shirts for Peter, Topshop frocks for I and some toys for the boys...
