The best banana muffins that are easy to make.


Muffins are the perfect grab and go breakfast. The ideal snack to pack in your child’s lunchbox. They are the answer to late evening cravings, with a glass of milk or a soothing herbal tea. Lighter than cake, sweeter than bread, muffins like our easy banana muffins satisfy your cravings while still being a pretty healthy option.

Making your own muffins is so easy; once you have the necessary equipment (basically a muffin tray), there will be no stopping you. And banana muffins are everybody’s favourite – especially mom’s and dad’s who wonder how the bananas they purchased went from being just right to almost overly ripe seemingly overnight! No worries, these easy banana muffins are best when made with very ripe bananas – the banana flavour is more intense and the flavour naturally sweeter.

Over the years, inspired by our parents’ garden, we have attempted to grow all sorts of vegetables. There was the summer that we planted butternut squash and had a beginner’s luck year, with a bounty of close to 20 beautiful gourds. Assuming that we had soil that was the perfect growing condition for our favourite winter squash, we planted them again the following year. One butternut squash was all we got. We made soup. A little bit of soup.

Pancakes are a special way to start the day! Although there are loads of pre-made pancake mixes you can buy at the grocery store, making your own pancakes is easy. Also, the mix varieties tend to stick to buttermilk or regular, and if you’re lucky you might find something with chocolate . We don’t think you will ever find a boxed pancake mix that makes orange ricotta pancakes however, and you really do need these in your life.

Our father has always said that if you have eggs in the house, you have a meal. He is so right! We rely on eggs pretty frequently, and not only for breakfast (although eggs fried in olive oil is one of our favourite ways to start the day). Eggs can be part of a pretty substantial meal at lunch or dinner; our eggs with loukaniko and potato is a hearty, classic Greek omelette that proves that you don’t need to get too complicated to create something great in the kitchen.

Eggs are quick and handy too. When we are particularly organized we keep a few hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator, available for anyone who needs a protein-filled snack or a breakfast on the go. Just be sure to identify the hard boiled eggs with a pencil marking on the shell to distinguish them from the raw eggs! We know, we know! There are other ways to tell the difference between the two, but really, who has time and energy for that?

Easter is our favourite holiday. We love everything about it, and when it is over we find ourselves with lots of left-over hard boiled eggs! It’s a good thing that we love eggs, that they are nutritious, and that they are so versatile. Eggs are also a pretty economical way to add protein to your diet. Although we love eating hard boiled eggs just as they are, with a slight sprinkling of salt and pepper, we also love to make things with hard boiled eggs. Whether they are leftover from Easter or another occasion, or you are cooking them in anticipation of these recipes, we think you’ll love them all.

Delicious quiche like muffins made with red pepper and tomato


Red pepper and tomato egg muffins! We love eggs. When we run out of eggs, we panic. During periods of lent, when we cut out meat, dairy and eggs, it’s the eggs we have the hardest time with. Besides the fact that they are common in baked goods (hello Greek marble cake) they are also the perfect solution to having nothing planned for dinner. Our dad always says that so long as you have eggs in the fridge, you have a meal – and he’s right!

One of our fondest memories of summers spent in Greece are heading to the chicken coop early in the morning with our aunt, on the hunt for eggs. For us city girls, searching for and collecting still warm eggs every day was something that we could never tire of. With our cousins we ran a competition. Who would find the most eggs. Who would collect the largest one. And who would find the prettiest egg of the day. Our aunt would then prepare breakfast by cracking some eggs in a cast iron frying pan generously coated with olive oil. The whites would develop a crinkly edge and the bright orange yolk would remain runny, perfect for dunking her homemade bread into.
