People call me Egs.

I’ve certainly been called many things (my wife, Rita Vindedzis currently holds the record). My goal with this site is to show you why people call me what they do. I simply can’t wait to hear what you’ll call me. Really, I can’t wait!

It’s what I do.

By day, I run blackDot.ca with my business partner, by night I’m a DH (Dear Husband). At other times I keep myself busy with Cameras, Cooking, Cars, Computers and Comedy. Cee?

I’ve been shooting professionally and personally since the late 1970s. Amazed by the latest digital, mobile, and social affect – photography’s latest Big Bang (or Big Flash) I feel the need to share my images with you. So long to the hidden coffee table box of photos.

Food.

We all love it, crave it, yearn for it. Yes, yearn George. Do you yearn?  Unfortunately, there are some of us in all parts of the world who haven’t enough. And there are those, myself included who have been in a battle with it. For most of my life until recently, I feel like I’ve been abusing it like an addict.

The Internet is wonderful. Here are some wonders I thought you may enjoy.

I hang around on Instagram. Here’s the latest.

Dish of the summer! Baked Feta on the bbq.

EGS' FAKED BETA

INGREDIENTS

Feta Cheese

Olive Oil

Fresh Thyme

Cherry or Grape Tomatoes

Shallots

DIRECTIONS

Preheat an oven or bbq to 400F

In a 9" x 13" or larger baking dish, spread some olive oil to coat the dish on the bottom and sides. 

In this dish, place as much quality feta cheese you'd like. For 2 to 4 people a 4" x 6" x 3/4" piece would be only enough. Better double that up for the 4 people, you'll be glad you did. Don't use the crumbled feta, it's too dry.

Place as many cherry or grape tomatoes around the cheese as you like. You can also get some fancy small tomatoes in various colours too. Experiment!

Smash-flatten-crush as many garlic cloves as you like with the side of a knife and nestle them amongst the tomatoes.

Optionally, quarter one or two shallots and add them to the party dish.

Personally. I like herbs so I tend to use about 10-20 sprigs of fresh thyme in the dish. Tear off the leaves and sprinkle them over everything. Use 3 to 5 whole tender sprigs for a decorative design on top of the feta.

Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil over it all and add a generous pinch of kosher or coarse salt over the tomatoes.

Place the baking dish in the oven for about 30-40 minutes, or until the feta has a light golden colour.

Use oven mitts to remove from the heat and place on a trivet. Serve with Pita bread, baguette, or in your bowl of freshly made pasta.

Rinse and Repeat
