Just about every Greek ingredient I could find is in this skillet. One dish meals are one of my favorite ways of cooking because you get to enjoy something different in each bite, and clean up is a breeze! This Greek Gyro Skillet can be served in a bowl or stuffed in a pita like a gyro....more

Moussaka is probably the most famous of all Greek casseroles. It is usually made with eggplants or zucchini, but this Potato Moussaka is made by layering thinly sliced potato chips with a meat filling, then topped off with scrambled eggs and baked to golden perfection. This moussaka recipe is simpler then other ones because you don’t need to make bechamel sauce and you don’t need to boil or fry the potatoes. The secret is in slicing potatoes really thin using your food processor or mandolin slicer. In this way raw potatoes can be put straight into a baking pan with other ingredients....more
We all come from someplace. Most of us know where we were born, have heard family stories passed down from our grandparents, our elders. I didn’t grow up with much of that, so indeed, it gives me great pride to tell my children their histories, to regale them with anecdotes of their childhood. For Callum, it was The Great Climb – up the overplowed snowbank to the peak of a Mount Hood Chalet. I still remember it like yesterday – looking up to find him sprawled across the glass atrium – strangers pointing and gasping at my 8 year old....more
Greek Eggplant Dip (Melitzanosalata) is a classic Greek appetizer. It is made with baked eggplants, Greek yogurt, garlic, olive oil, lemon and without tahini. This rustic recipe was submitted by a reader of this blog many years ago, but only now I managed to take a photo of it so that you can see how great it looks. It is really easy to make and tastes great with bread, fish or meat. Greek Eggplant Dip is traditionally made with Greek strained yoghurt but can also be made with mayonnaise instead (I used a mixture of Greek yogurt and mayo)....more
I loved how quickly this dip came together; perfect for last minute get-togethers or if you are like me, you just can’t wait to have it…
Mediterranean, and specifically Greek food is one of my all-time faves…can you go wrong with lemon, oregano and feta? Throw some hummus and pita chips in there and you might as well just leave me alone…seriously, go away.
After I made this Greek Frittata with Zucchini, Tomatoes, Feta, and Herbs, I noticed I was eating the leftovers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That launched the idea in my mind that frittatas, which are a type of omelet that's not folded over, might be a perfect Meatless Monday dish. I love the combination of tomatoes and feta in this recipe, but if you're not a fan of salty Greek feta cheese, mozzarella would make a nice substitute.
