My Yia Yia Metaxia

This is a photo of my Yia Yia Metaxia. She would have been 87 years old today if she had not passed away the summer of 2004. She was a strong, funny, loving grandma who taught me all about Greek cooking when she was alive. She inspired me to start working on a cookbook a couple of years ago and I have been working on it ever since. Her name Metaxia means silk in Greek and it is also my middle name. People usually choose Mary or Michelle but are surprised when I tell them the true name and meaning. Then each and everytime I am dubbed Christina Silk, haha. To my Yia Yia I love you, I miss you, and no I have not given up :)—-CMY
