    Very nice to meet you. Athenaeus has won many hearts here, so it's a pleasure to hear from her twin. (BTW, there are quite a few of us here in NYC!)

    Hi Mel!
    Welcome on board!

    I think that you can help here with your talent to transform the most fattening recipe into a non fat but still delicious one!

    Melina is performing some experiments on how chocolate can be used without being fattening ;)

    What I Love with Internet is that your identical twin sister cannot fool your friends about her identity!!
    If "Athenaeus" starts behaving in a strange way, ask her to talk to you in Latin.
    This is the reason I learned Latin!!:D

    Oh Kimmie I am the oldest!

    Ti Kanis! Welcome to Chef Talk! I hope I remember enough of my Greek to say that properly. Please tell us a bit about yourself, Melina. Are you a lawyer like your sister?

    Dear Mezzaluna.

    Eimai kala efxaristo! Your Greek sound great!

    No I am not a lawyer, I am involved in the fashion business. Nothing creative, just a retired to be model.
    We are a strange family I think.
    My dad and Athenaeus are the always serious and the scientific minds and the hard working (and good cooks both of them), my mom and I chose the world of fashion.
    I love cooking also but I cannot eat too much that's why I try to be a bit creative in low fat cooking!

    Afra you must be the bookworm my sister was telling me about ;)

    I gotta go! It's very late now!

    Hey Afra!
    Check on the web about people from Mani -Greece. Mani is the area my family comes from.
    We are vicious killers...

    Who ever makes fun of you he/she is BIG trouble cherie...

    She is not making fun of you!

    Thanks Panini.

    I visited your site.

    I 'll tell what we are going to do.
    You will have me in a picture eating your cakes and suggesting that all this sugar your are using is harmless.

    :)

    Here is my secret for calorie free chocolate.

    Eat a bar of chocolate and afterwards jog for 2 hours and excercise on the boxing sac for another hour.
    There you are!
    Free of calories!
