Pork loin with two types of stuffing

Feb 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Meat and Poultry, Recipes

This pork is roasted at low temperature in the oven. The result was a juicy and soft meat with nice flavors from the stuffing. The method as such I have not used that much before but I will from now on as the meat turns out nicely. The clue is that you don’t heat the [...]

Turbot in the oven

Feb 14th, 2011 | By | Category: Fish, Recipes

When I bought this terrific Turbot I did not consider that it most probably could not fit any frying pan I had at home. Thank god I found a baking tray that would accommodate the Turbot. Later I was glad for choosing this method as it turned out to be the easiest anyhow. I was [...]

In Greece you would rarely get lentils or lentil soup served with out Feta cheese. It is too good of a match. Still I am posting one of my favorite versions of lentil soup. The lightly sour taste of the Feta cheese goes very well with the soup, it adds a fresh touch to it. [...]

Apple and almond soup

Jan 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

A thick, hearty soup for cold days. The soup reminds me a bit of Asian sweet and sour soups. The almonds give it plenty of volume. With a slice of bread this soup is a whole meal, certainly for lunch. I can also imagine some croutons on top of it. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this [...]
