I am a big fan of spinach and I use it in many recipes (I leave them at the end). Either it's fresh spinach or frozen. This Florentine chicken with spinach and creamy cream sauce is an Italian-American dish (“florentine chicken with creamy sauce”) And brings together ingredients that go very well with each other, reminding me of the spinach puree I grew up with. Transylvanian spinach food is with milk and garlic & # 8211 the recipe here. Most often we eat it with skewers, scrambled eggs or meatballs.

In the case of this Florentine chicken I used sweet cream for cream (natural, not vegetable!), Green garlic and fresh spinach. In the extra season we use old garlic and frozen spinach. Poultry can be both chicken (breast or boneless thighs) and turkey (breast). Being a quick recipe you will see that the cooking is short and the result is fabulous.

From the quantities below are 4-5 servings of Florentine chicken with spinach, sour cream, garlic and parmesan.

Bouyourdi is a simple recipe for feta cheese with baked vegetables, easy and fast, with wonderful tastes and textures from Greek cuisine.

Here the Greeks made something so simple and so good, and the baked girl with some vegetables becomes a hot appetizer that everyone will fall in love with.

For the bouyourdi recipe to be exactly what you are looking for, try to use the best ingredients possible. Greek olive oil can definitely be found everywhere, the cheese must be good too, you can even find an authentic one in supermarkets, and oregano, although it is just a simple spice, would be good to be of Greek origin. There are Greek online stores, so you can stock up on everything you want.

Bouyourdi & # 8211 feta cheese with baked vegetables - is the perfect recipe for summer, when we eat easier, influenced by the great heat, but also by the holidays we have been or are going to leave.

Another hot appetizer recipe with feta cheese in the oven, the holiday recipe, is that of peppers stuffed with feta in the oven, one of the most delicious hot appetizers. If you want to be inspired and cook other recipes from Greek cuisine, I invite you to see my collection of Greek recipes here.

The Greeks put cheese in aluminum foil or in clay bowls, but it also works in baking paper.

I avoided aluminum foil, so I used a bowl I bought 6 years ago from the island of Patmos. At the end you will find a picture from there, taken right at sunset. Somewhere down there in the harbor was the boat we were moving from one island to another. It was one of the most beautiful vacations of my life.

To make bouyourdi you can put the vegetables in the first layer and the cheese over them, there are variants with cheese placed on the bottom of the dish and slices of tomatoes over it, or pieces of feta with vegetables put together. I chose to put a very large slice of tomato and cherry tomatoes, peppers and onions on the bottom. I made this special, to give you an idea of ​​a gourmet presentation, as you can find in the second picture.

The taste and aroma are strongly influenced by garlic and oregano.

The bouyourdi recipe is commonplace as a way of preparation. In 30 minutes you can sit at the table and enjoy a very good hot appetizer.

It can also be eaten for dinner or breakfast.

I leave below the list of ingredients and how to prepare bouyourdi & # 8211 feta with baked vegetables.


For starters, I preheated the oven to 200 °. I cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters, I added slices of red onion, salt, pepper, sliced ​​olives and oregano.

I poured olive oil and mixed. I put on the bottom of the pot a large slice of tomato, 1 cm thick. I put feta cheese on top of this.

I put the mixed vegetables on the edges, next to the feta, and over the cheese I arranged some onion, tomato, pepper and olive fruits.

I baked the feta with vegetables in the oven for 20 minutes. I took it out of the oven and ate it immediately with bread, but it would go perfectly with bread or Greek pita.

Here is the island I was talking about. Doesn't the port look beautiful at sunset?

Macaroni with cheese and baked ham

Macaroni with cheese and ham in the oven. Baked pasta recipe mac and cheese (mac & # 8217n & # 8217cheese) in Romanian version. A macaroni pudding with pieces of ham. Especially if they are & # 8222dressed & # 8221 of velvety cream sauce and beaten eggs, and covered with a generous layer of au gratin cheese! What goodness! A quick dinner that is prepared in less than an hour and that will surely be to the liking of the whole family (especially to the liking of the children).

The shape of the pasta used does not matter much, but it should be short and tubular: macaroni (macaroni), rigatoni, pipe, tortiglioni, penne, curvi (snails), conchiglie (shells) or any other form of tubular pasta. There is a chickpea here & # 8211 when baked, the sour cream sauce with eggs goes well in the pasta channels forming a & # 8222filling & # 8221.

I found on the internet some images that show the most popular types of pasta (source: Wikipedia).

Mine seem to be macaroni: they have a cylindrical shape, slightly curved and are smooth. If they were cut obliquely, they were smooth (striped) or striped (ribbed). Do you know anything? I still get in my stomach :).

Okay, now we know more about pasta. Let's cook something with them.

Because I have a 9-18 work schedule at work and I know that my family is waiting for us to eat dinner together, I often call my daughter to start her food (for the simple stuff). When I know I want to make pasta, I call her from the car and ask her to boil salted water. When I get home I can throw the pasta in the pot with boiling water and while they boil I take care of the sauce. The word comes to the sauce as it is very simple here. It resembles carbonara pasta but baked pasta also has sour cream (see here the original recipe for Pasta a la carbonara ).

The cheeses used can be various: telemea (preferably mixed with eggs and sour cream), feta, mozzarella, stronger cheeses (I used Cheddar and Montesino), parmesan, etc. They are good and mixed, from & # 8222s leftovers & # 8221 from the fridge. Grating succeeds better with cheese than with telemea (it does not melt much but dries more in the oven).

I knew I had a stew boiled in the fridge (deboned and rolled in plastic wrap) and I wanted to use a few slices of it (and I did well!). Of course, the ham can be replaced with pieces of bacon, kaiser, ribs or smoked bacon. You can also use mushrooms hardened in butter or cheeses with noble mold (Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton etc).

The classic American recipe for these mac and cheese (you can find it here) involves the preparation of a sos Bechamel with cheese (called sos Mornay). I simplified it a bit.

From the ingredients below you get 6 generous servings of macaroni with cheese and baked ham.

When I cooked at Bel Mondo, Ioana Grigore from & # 8220Lumea retetelor & # 8221 prepared some chicken stews with sour cream sauce, a simple and healthy recipe. I transformed it a little, I added an extra Parmesan cheese and here is how in 25 minutes I got a quick and delicious dinner.


500 g boneless and skinless chicken breast
2 eggs
200 g flour
150 g pesmet
100 g parmesan race
200 g sour cream
4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil

To start, turn on the oven to heat to 200 ° c. We also prepare a tray, which we cover with baking paper.
We cut the chicken breast into thin and long strips. Season them with salt and pepper, then roll them in flour.

We then pass each strip of meat through beaten eggs, then we roll them in a mixture of breadcrumbs and finely grated Parmesan cheese. We put the pieces of meat directly in the tray in which we will cook them. When we have finished the operation of wallpapering the chicken strips, we put the tray in the oven for 15-18 minutes, or until they turn golden.

After 8 minutes we will turn them so that they brown on both sides.

While the dumplings are cooking, prepare the sauce: rub the crushed garlic cloves with olive oil, salt and pepper. When the garlic has turned into a bound paste, put the cream over it and mix to homogenize the composition. We put the sauce in a small bowl.

For an elegant presentation we arrange the chicken stews on a plate around the sauce and serve.

Good appetite!
