10 Minute Salad: Minty Cucumbers with Feta Cheese

This is a super fun and easy salad to make.  I think it’s perfect when it’s hot outside and you don’t really want to go near the oven.

Aarti’s Lamb Kofte/Kofto Kebabs with Pomegranate Glaze and Cucumber Yogurt Sauce (Tzaziki)

I have been wanting to make this recipe since last year’s season of Food Network Star aired.  In this episode, Aarti’s challenge was to prepare a dish for a culinary legend to  re-invent a dish of the best thing he ever ate.  Unfortunately, I do not recall the name of the culinary legend.  All I [...]

Food Revolution & Jamie Oliver’s Strawberry Salad with Prosciutto, Halloumi and Romaine

Before I share my recipe I wanted to let you know how much I adore and support Jamie Oliver.  I  am very excited about his 2nd season that will be premiering this week.  His Food Revolution takes place in Los Angeles… in my city.  “So what?” you may say…  Well since I do reside in [...]

Mediterranean Spaghetti with Eggplants, Broccoli & Garlic-herb Tomatoes topped with Feta Cheese

Everyone in the family loved it!  It is perfect for lunch – filled with lots of  flavor, fiber and energy!  The best part is that you can make this anytime you want a meatless dish, or do not have [...]

Quick & Easy Mini Pizza Buns!

Today was another day that I had to rush dinner after work.  I opened the fridge and started thinking what can I make that can be quick and family friendly? I started pulling leftover ingredients from not so replenished fridge…  I had a 1/2 bottle of Giada Basil tomato sauce and did not want it [...]

Greek Style Okra, Onion, and Tomato Stew with Kalamata Olives

Growing up, I have always had Okra and Meat Stew that my Mom makes.  After many trials, I acquired and started to like the taste and texture of okras.  I still have her stew whenever she’s had a chance to make some for her and my Dad. Okra stew is not really an entertainment dish; [...]
