I am so excited to be talking about the Workplace Wellness Healthy Cooking Demonstrations that I am now offering! I have been fortunate to have recently worked with a few local businesses helping to inspire employees to make positive changes. The word seems to be spreading and I would like to offer my services to more businesses.
If you have a Workplace Wellness Program and would like to offer Healthy Cooking Demonstrations to your employees please contact me at the email address above.

Hi All! I am very excited to post about our upcoming “Dancing with the Greeks” dance to benefit St. George Greek Orthodox Church here in Bangor, Maine. The dance has been growing over the years and everyone who attends has a wonderful time. This year Lambros Karris is hosting two young musicians who have come from Larissa, Greece, Kostas Palagas and Dimitris Marogiannis, to play the Bouzouki and sing for us. Dance lessons are being held prior to the event and give everyone a chance to experience a little bit of our culture. The lessons are free and anyone can attend. Kostas and Dimitris will be at our last dance lesson, October 30th, so be sure to come and get your “Greek” on!
Then at the dance on Saturday we will have a wide variety of Greek specialties for your eating pleasure as well as drinks and our famous Lemonade and Gyros from the American Folk Festival Greek Taverna. Tickets can be purchased at the door or picked up at Angelo’s Pizzeria on Hammond Street in Bangor for a $5.00 savings. Join us as we celebrate our culture with the community. OPA!
Also, I will be demonstrating two “Mediterranean Fresh” recipes on the WABI Morning News Friday, November 1st so be sure to watch!

This year it was in the shape of a lion - “Richard the Lion and the Knights of the Round Stable!” When you make your way through there are stations with riddles. And when you get to the end you are greeted with a big sign. Continue reading
