 I love New England for many reasons but the lobster and the chowder are my favorite meals to have when I visit that beautiful part of the US.

I only wish the water of the Atlantic ocean was warmer so we could enjoy swimming, but no, not for me, way too cold!

Divine shrimp with Feta!

Divine shrimp with herbs and Feta
Dill and Feta make this recipe irresistible. 

Amazing taste! Shrimp is easy to cook and always appreciated by many!

Great for Bruschetta or a salad topping also for a nice wrap and tacos, or just like that because you like seafood!

A good white wine like a chardonnay will go very well with this appetizer.

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis. Posted in Main Dishes, Recipes

This is recipe is for 2

We have been doing one-pot pasta for a long time, we meaning Greek people…And here is my recipe for one-pot lemon pasta!

I remember that is how my father liked his Pasta. He was always hungry as all men are and this recipe was so fast and delicious. Just 15 minutes to satisfy a hungry man!

Now it is so much in demand and I decided to add my own take on the one pot Pasta.

With shrimp, and cooked clams, with a lemony taste that I love!
