Watermelon and Feta Salad with Balsamic Reduction


We had this salad at the Food & Garden Festival in Epcot, Disney World, in April. My son loved it so much I told him when we got home I would make it for him. Well, I saw watermelons on sale the other day and picked up one that looked nice and let it sit…

Wow! Ore-Ida Shared One of My Recipes


The other day I took a quick look at my stats and thought, “That can not possibly be correct!” My page views were 500% higher than normal. I looked a little deeper and saw that most of it was attributed to one post “Greek Totchos with Homemade Tzatziki.“(click for link to post)  I wrote this…

Greek Chicken Kabobs with Cucumber Tomato Salad


This is the meal my kids wanted to have for dinner when they returned from camp. I had the chicken marinating in the refrigerator all ready to go when we got home but their concerts lasted far longer than we thought they would so we did not return home until late. The kids decided that drive-through…

Mediterranean Chicken with Rice


We are back to our To-Go dinners. Dance classes have picked up again to four a week so we are traveling much more than usual. Rather than stop at fast food restaurants for dinner I make our regular meals and put them into divided covered dishes for the kids to eat their dinner in the…

Greek Pizzas with Tzatiki


We are getting back into the warmer days slowly.  On top of all the school and community events my children have we are wanting to spend more time outside.  That means dinner is getting later and later.  I love that this meal took less than 30 minutes to have on the table and I made…

Mediterranean Chicken Skillet


Before the holidays things seem to get so hectic.  We are trying to fit 1,000 things into the space of 250.  I am always searching for tasty, easy meals that I can get on the table quickly and that my family will actually eat.  I tried this meal the other night and it was on…

Blackened Fish Tacos


This past weekend we attended an Irish Festival in Big Rapids, Michigan.  It was the first year of this festival and it was quite a bit of fun.  But we did not get back home until 1:15 am Saturday night.  It threw the rest of our weekend out of order and by last night I…

Pork Carnitas Tacos with Pickled Onions


Back from two evenings off of making dinner.  The conference I attended on Monday and Tuesday was fabulous.  I can’t wait to share more of it in the coming days. But, I still had to cook dinner last night.  When I explained my blog to people at the conference most asked me how I had…

Slow Cooker Chicken Gyros


My 200th post.  I thought it would be something spectacular like boeuf bourguignon or something.  Definitely not a chicken dish. But, it has been a long, strange journey for me and my family over the last 20 months.  Moving twice in one year (don’t recommend it) threw a monkey wrench into everything, but despite two…

Marinated Feta over Greek Hamburgers


My family LOVES Greek flavors in food.  Lots of oregano, parsley and garlic are in many of our dishes.  One of their favorites is our version of Greek Hamburgers (recipe at bottom of page). When I saw a recipe on Pinterest for Marinated Feta I knew it would be a hit in our family.  My…

Mediterranean Pizza


I needed a quick meal that would travel well for our usual Tuesday and Thursday drive to dance classes, a one hour drive each way.  I had nothing planned and time was running out to get a meal ready that could be eaten in the car.  I pick my son up from the bus stop…

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts


This is another Pinterest recipe.  I have been really interested in Pinterest lately.   Okay, obsessed with Pinterest lately.  But this has all the flavors I knew my family would love.  Feta and bacon.  My children eat feta cheese right from the container.  I can’t keep it out or it will be gone within 5 minutes….
