Grilled sweet potatoe salad

Love this salad,  different and very delicious! Very healthy to say the least! Dynamite in flavor and taste this grilled sweet potato salad is! Please don’t forget the cinnamon in the salad dressing.The salad becomes a stellar salad, five-star salad!

The health benefits are too numerous to mention, so here are just a few

“Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and, due to their orange color, are high in carotenoids,”

Sweet potatoes are my best friends, they cook easy, they are very healthy and delicious, children love them, how can you go wrong with sweet potatoes!

They control blood sugar, they have anti-inflammatory properties and the list goes on and on!

In many countries like Greece, they are expensive, but try to have them at least once a week, believe me, worth every penny if you ask me.

They pack so much goodness, it’s unbelievable!

You will love how easy it is to make and the flavor is phenomenal!

Great with a BBQ, add a little protein like a piece of chicken or fish and you have a complete meal!

Beef Pot Roast by Litsa!

 

I love recipes that I can just put in the oven and forget about them, and when the food is done, I have deliciousness! This Beef pot roast recipe is exactly that!

A hearty recipe, that the man love and it is so easy to make them happy with this dish!

And we want to make them happy because it comes back to us many times over…I hear my grandmother, “feed them well and if you ask for the universe they will give it to you!”Yes grandma it works”

It has the past and certainly has a future!

It has been one of my favorites and a family recipe for as long as I can remember, you know the little treasures I usually talk about, one of those!

Traditional Greek Phyllo dough-Litsa!

Traditional Greek Phyllo dough

This is a treasured recipe among the Greek ladies! Traditional Greek Phyllo dough a well-kept secret because every region of Greece has their own way of making it and they are so proud!

It’s a gift to be able to master the art and it requires time and work, something that the new generation of homemakers are not willing to invest.

The only thing we want is for the making of  Phyllo to continue to exist and to be passed on to the new crop of foodies, and not get lost and become a memory like so many other things have.

So, I would like to encourage you to try and make it at least once and you will realize how easy it is!

Also, mothers, try and teach your daughters and sons how to make it, this way it will survive the test of time!

Start young before they say “I don’t like to cook”

We want them to get involved and learn from your chest of treasured recipes, the ones you know by heart, the ones that there is no recipe, just a little bit of this and a little bit of that!And that is how mothers pass down their recipes to girls of the family!

Traditional Greek Phyllo is delicious, nothing compares!

You will need.

Tiropita Litsa!

Tiropita with Feta cheese

Street food, snack, meze or something to enjoy at any moment is Tiropita!

A very delicious cheese pie, made with Feta cheese and eggs, something between a pie and a Soufflé!

Warm or cold, with coffee, tea, beer or wine it is absolutely delicious!

Every country has their own street food!

When in a different country make it a point to have the street food of the area, paying special attention to the way the food is prepared and how clean everything is! Also look at the person behind the cart, and their hands, how does it feel, inviting, you get a good feeling, then go ahead and have some, otherwise do not play with your vacation time!

Don’t go with the logic that heat kills all and it is just fine!

This is a very important detail if you don’t want to get sick!

Ask many questions and never assume!

I remember in one of our vacations to Colombia I was ready to get a piece from a cluster hanging from a tree thinking it was cheese, thank god someone asked me if I knew what that was, I said cheese and he said with a smile, Iguana eggs!

Needless to say, I went no further!

In Greece, they have so many to choose from, but the most famous and delicious is the Souvlaki!

Delicious lamb or pork and chicken chunks, marinated in all the amazing herbs and spices of the region and roasted in charcoal, make the best street food!

Tiropita, spanakopita, koulouri with Sesame and so much more are available and it is clean food! Delicious food and very inexpensive!
