Follow me through the adventures that take place in my kitchen, in restaurants or in other kitchens. Cooking and food are my passions and I want to share my experiences of cooking, baking and eating with you.
I'm a Greek self-taught cook who lives in Chicago. I learned a lot about cooking from both of my grandmothers, my mom and dad, family and friends. Passing on timeless traditions through food is one thing I strive to do in life.
These are my journeys through culinary exploration...

Prosciutto, Caramelized Onion, Sun-Dried Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella Pizza
When mom got in town last night - I pulled my fresh, homemade pizza dough out of the fridge and we topped our pizza together. I used The Pioneer Woman’spizza dough recipe. I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. It was REALLY easy to make and super tasty… I might not ever get pizza delivered ever again! (thanks to emmysnacks for the advice!!)
I also used Ree’s pizza recipe and just added some other toppings: sun-dried tomatoes and drizzled the oil from the tomatoes over the crust. I’ll probably make this pizza again with figs or dates in place of the tomatoes.
If you’re looking for a tasty pizza recipe - try this one out. I guarantee your mouth will water when you start caramelizing the onion! :)
