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...

PEANUT BUTTER + BACON = ♥
I can’t phathom the reason why it took so long for me have a taste of this glorious flavor combination! Peanut butter and chocolate will always have a special place in my heart - but as a result of finding this recipe on Joy the Baker, this new duo might be a new found love of mine. :)
Peanut butter and bacon cookies y’all. I don’t feel as though I need to say much more… and once you try them yourself, I’m 100% sure you’ll agree.
Oh yeah - and they’re GLUTEN FREE too!
Flourless Peanut Butter and Bacon Cookies
1 c. all-natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
½ c. brown sugar
½ c. granulated sugar
1 t. baking soda
4-6 slices of bacon cooked, cooled and diced
In a skillet over medium high heat, fry up bacon until cooked through and let cool on paper towels until cool enough to dice. Dice up and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Grease a baking sheet with butter and set aside. In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes. Fold in cooked bacon.
Roll into large walnut sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork. If you’d like, roll the dough balls in granulated sugar before making the cris-cross pattern. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for five minutes.
