Definitely one of the most delicious, traditional Cypriot recipes. Tahini pie is probably one of the most grossing items in any bakery store in Cyprus. It’s a sweet pastry coil filled with creamy tahini and cinnamon. I absolutely love it, so creating a simpler version for the home baker was something I really wanted to create. Continue reading
Sometimes I have so much cheese in the fridge I don’t know what to do with it. Pasta gratin is my first choice but since lunch was already sorted, these muffins were next in line.

Roasted nectarines are so delicious, they are begging to go on top of a cheesecake. And this summery dessert just comes together like magic. Continue reading
I used to think that home baked bread was something for the really keen and experienced cooks. Not anymore. I have been baking my own bread for some time now and I have to say that all you need is love!
