Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mothers out there!!! Especially to my mama!! Wishing you all a beautiful time with your family and friends.
You might be wondering what the heck happened to me after Greek Easter? Ah yes, I disappeared for a few days. Lots of exciting new things are happening, and of course I want to share with you. From interviews, catering, hair clients, and my next new project… I have been super duper BUSY. Yes, I said next new project. One word comes to mind for my next project. “OLIVES”
I guess you will have to wait for the next post to find out more about my next exciting new project. 🙂
IN THE NEWS
You might have noticed Back To My Roots cookbook showing up on a few amazing Greek blogger sites, as well as some major online newspapers. This past week, we were asked to be interviewed on popular Greek blogs, and 1 podcast show! Yes, I have been a busy chef these days, but I won’t leave you guys. (You are stuck with me forever ha!)
I have to thank all the amazing people who have asked Kouzounas Kitchen to be a part of their blog/ podcast. Lots of work and time goes into these interviews, so a huge THANK YOU!!
Let’s Get To The Interviews

Ellen Karis is an amazing Greek talented comedian from New York, and I just found out that she is also a Maniatissa. (Her father’s family is from Mani.) She asked me to be on her new podcast #EllenKarisComedyCorner over on BBOXradio. There we had a 1 hour chat, which I might say was hilarious, and you can listen to the replay here. >> Get to know me, Kouzounas Kitchen, and my first self published cookbook Back To My Roots. Please check out the wonderful Ellen Karis on her blog right here. >> Uh oh, you guys are going to hear my voice, and please please, I hope you share your comments with me below.
Thank you very much Ellen for having me last minute on your podcast, and I do hope we can cook together one day soon in NYC. Thank you to my friend Dean from Bay Walk Marketing for introducing us.

Meet my friend Evi Skoura, who is the name behind The Healthy Cook blog. I started following her quite sometime ago via Instagram. I was facinated with her photos, so I then followed her food blog. You might recognize Evi from a few posts back on Kouzounas Kitchen. I interviewed her, and we had a lovely recipe from Evi. Check it out here>> Meet The Healthy Cook Food Blogger.
