Spanakopita

If there has ever been a most-requested recipe on The Rose Table, this is it. It was in the background of my Village Salad photos and I’ve been bombarded with messages ever since asking me to post “that Greek pie.” Spanakopita is a spinach and feta pie with layers and layers of crispy phyllo. You…

Greek Baked Chicken

A one-dish dinner that you’ll want to make again and again My affinity for Greek food knows no bounds. If you’ve ever had Greek baked chicken, your mouth is probably watering just looking at these photos. The potatoes are in a league of their own to be baked in a pool of lemon juice, chicken…

Dolmades

I truly could eat dolmades every day. This fun Greek dish can be eaten warm as an appetizer with some of the pan juices spooned on top, room temperature, and even cold straight out of the fridge. They’re delicious with freshly squeezed lemon or tzatziki sauce and are perfect for a mezze platter. I ate…

Disney Dinners: Hercules

A Greek menu fit for a demigod! Disney’s Hercules has a special place in my heart. For a long time I said it was my favorite Disney movie, narrowly edged out by Mulan. I was severely bullied as a teenager so the opening of Hercules really resonates with me. I can’t tell you how many times…

The only challenge is grating the cucumber, which is imperative for a thick tzatziki. You can use this as a dip with veggies, as a…

Lamb Lollipops

These delightful lamb lollipops take just 15 minutes! I adore lamb. I wish more Americans did. Greece knows what it’s doing with lamb and I paid close attention at the Greek Food Festival in Dallas last year where I ate the most incredible lamb lollipops. I asked the guys what they did and they said,…

Feta Cheese Sauce

An easy and delicious sauce that’s delicious on grilled meat! I would swan dive right into this sauce if it was socially acceptable. Feta cheese is one of my great loves. It’s been a favorite ingredient of mine since I was a teenager. I can’t ever get enough feta. If something has feta on a…
