Cooking with Vivi is 9 months old! Our baby is growing stronger every day. I am celebrating my love and passion for cooking with a collection of food photographs that made me happy. I enjoyed cooking the meals and taking these photographs, I loved every bit of light in every picture below! This is the first post, I will keep publishing photos for a few days. Enjoy my friends, and if you like my work, please share this post and the ones coming later! Love, Vivi

PS: Today, only desserts!

Greek yogurt, honey and walnuts dessert

by viviana on August 6, 2012 in Desserts

 

We toured Greece in 2005, and I still have the most beautiful memories from that trip :). One of the culinary highlights of our trip was the wonderful yogurt, honey and walnuts dessert. The Greeks use a sort of thick and sourish yogurt that beautifully contrasts with the sweetness of honey. Since then, I have been serving this dessert to my daughter, Granny and guests and I have to admit, I have used it (just like in Greece) as a nice ending to my daughter’s breakfast or dinner sometimes.

I can still remember the first time I came up with the idea we should cook an entire stuffed turkey (as I learned about Thanksgiving from a book). I told my Granny we should cook turkey the way the Brits do, and we did! It was grand!

I decided to marinate the lamb as the pieces were rather big and I wanted to impress my family with the Easter dinner :).
