Barbecue Day

In Cyprus we love barbecue.  We usually have "souvla" or "souvlaki", but last Sunday we decided we wanted something different.  The weather was perfect so we enjoyed a lovely barbecue picnic. 

I made some burgers using pork and beef, fresh herbs from our garden and spices.  The pork chops were marinated in soy sauce, herbs and garlic.

The meat was seasoned with sea salt and black pepper.

We usually buy halloumi cheese but this one was my mum's creation!!  Simply delicious! 


  1. They seem delicious my dear!!!I am a meat lover so barbeque is my HEAVEN!!! Especially the home made halloumi of your mother. All the family has talent!!!!

  2. It seems like you have a fabulous time !
    Here we also like to barbecue.... and for me they always put some veggie :)

  3. The meats look perfectly seasoned and delicious. The meats over in Cyprus are always much more tender than what we get here in the UK, for some reason! And the cheese looks great too. It's been too long since my last barbeque.

  12. BBQ looks great! Should add some corn and vegetables there too. K. Turner

  13. BBQ looks great! Should add some corn and other vegetables

  14. Looks great but I am thinking about becoming a vegetarian but dont know if I can stick to my guns because it takes a lot of pre-planning and adjusting your diet emotionally and come to a point where you have no resentment about making the change. The reason why is because I am a animal advocate and volunteer so I feel like a hypocrite sometimes for eating and wearing animals...but maybe I am to hard on myself...because I love cheese burgers..

  15. Those look really delicious, making some changes one in a while is definitely a good thing

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
