Herbal remedy for cough: Cough syrup recipe

Natural flu remedies

Homemade cough syrup with thyme at home.
The recipe is from the book “Thyme and Oregano, healing and cooking herbs”
“Thyme is a preventive antibiotic for flu epidemics. Hippocrates, in his writtings on diet, says that the thyme is heating, diuretic and expels phlegm. Thyme heals bronchitis and strengthens the immune system against the flu or colds.”

The season of eggplants: new recipe!

eggplants recipeI had to come up with a new recipe, since I had plenty eggplants from my garden. Of course, I gave away some of them, but still,  I had enough left.
Inspired by several other recipes, I finally made up this one, which I named: “short of greek moussaka”. It has a few similarities with the famous moussaka, but it is far more easy, healthier, and quite yummy!

2-3 potatoes Continue reading The season of eggplants: new recipe!
