Welcome to my Blog!

I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my passion for food and culture with you. Growing up in a diverse Ecuadorian-Greek household in Texas has made for some very interesting dinners. I will be sharing ideas and recipes for entertaining. Some new and some old, some spicy and some comforting, and some passed down from generations of women from both sides of my family. So, please visit my blog on a regular basis. I will be posting lots of interesting and unique recipes.

100 Favorite Dishes 2012: No. 45, Larissa Plate at Harry’s 2012

Harry’s Restaurant & Cafe is a Midtown institution, although you wouldn’t know it from the exterior of the restaurant, which was remodeled in 2003.
