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...

Another recipe I cooked up was Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp (again from Gina at skinnytaste.com). This dish is most likely best served over rice. Since I’m taking a time out from it right now - I served mine over spaghetti sqaush. I’m sure it’s MUCH better over rice, but this worked for me.
The sauce was a little thin because you add it at the same time as the shrimp - and we all know how unpleasant overcooked shrimp can be! So next time I make it I’ll put in a bit more coconut milk than called for and simmer it in with the sauteed garlic, scallions and curry paste until it’s reduced down and a little thicker. But the flavor of this dish was delightful! Super easy and quick to make - you have to try it!
