Mediterranean Crockpot Chicken

Looking for an easy slow cooker chicken recipe that’s fancy enough for company? You’ve found it! Let me start by saying: I am not a big slow cooker person, but I vowed to use my slow cooker more this summer, when I don’t want to stand outside and grill nor heat up my house with…

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…

Mezze Platter

A family style platter full of Greek goodies I really could eat a mezze platter every single night. Full of healthy Greek favorites, this platter is a crowd pleaser! I strongly recommend making your own tzatziki. It only takes a few minutes. Get my tzatziki recipe here. You find dolmades at many grocery stores in…

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,…

Chicken Gyro

Some of the best meals are so simple. I truly could eat a gyro for lunch every day. When I studied abroad in Greece, I almost did! They’re filling and crunchy and creamy and so delicious. The garlicky (and healthy!) tzatziki sauce just makes it! Chicken gyros come together very quickly. Make the tzatziki sauce…

Lamb Meatballs

My regular readers know that Greek food is my absolute favorite. I’ve been making these lamb meatballs since I was a teenager. I can’t believe I’ve never posted this recipe before! I serve lamb meatballs all sorts of ways: with tapas, in gyros, on pasta, and in salads. The key here is fresh mint, fresh…

Sun-dried Tomato Tabbouleh

I made tabbouleh in my dorm room nearly every week of my college career.(To read about my lifelong love of Greek food, click here.) Why? Because all you need is boiling water! I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you that I was always thinking up dishes I could whip up in my dorm room with no…

Passport Greece

My love of Greek food is sincere and longstanding. In fact, I threw my first ever dinner party at the age of sixteen and the theme was Greece. My friends at the time wolfed down the food (which my mom had spent hours – days, even – preparing with me) and wanted to know what…

Sun-dried Tomato and Feta Stuffed Mushrooms

I adore Mediterranean flavors year-round. I often joke that I studied abroad in Greece just for the feta. There’s just something so comforting about sun-dried tomato in the dead of winter. North Texas is under ice and I wanted something both comforting and sophisticated to enjoy during the Academy Awards last night. This is what…
