Mediterranean Burgers

Mediterranean Burgers

Sometimes a girl has to quench her craving for a good burger, right? That doesn”t necessarily mean hitting the local fast food joint though …  on the contrary, for me it means whipping up some flavorful burgers right here at home. My latest creation: these Mediterranean Burgers packed with tangy Kalamata olives, fresh herbs and savory beef. These burgers were GOOD. Seriously, they were.

Asparagus, Scallion and Goat Cheese Pizza — Πίτσα με Σπαράγγια, Kρεμμυδάκια και Κατσικίσιο Τυρί

Asparagus, Scallion and Goat Cheese Pizza — Πίτσα με Σπαράγγια, Kρεμμυδάκια και Κατσικί

The warm weather of spring and the effects of all that meat enjoyed on Easter call for much lighter eating these days. Salads, fresh fruit, fish and tons of vegetables simply tossed in olive oil are on the menu more-so now than ever before. That doesn’t mean you can’t get creative though. So, why not put together a healthy homemade pizza dotted with vegetables, cheese and, well, whatever else your heart desires? Note: we’re thinking healthy for now, so just put the sausage, bacon and pepperoni back in the fridge for a little while.

Chicken Curry — Ινδικό Kοτόπουλο

Chicken Curry — Ινδικό Kοτόπουλο

Easter came and went–and I will post some of the recipes I used for that feast over the next couple of weeks–but for now, I’d like to share something different. I’ve loved Indian food for quite a long time. But it had been ages since I’d enjoyed some … until we attended the wedding of a co-worker/friend of my husband’s just about two weeks ago. Being that my husband’s co-worker is of Indian decent, we enjoyed some amazing food there.

Μουούρι — Easter Lamb (from Kalymnos)

Μουούρι — Easter Lamb (from Kalymnos)

For now, Greek custom dictates exchanging the wish Καλή Ανάσταση (pronounced ka-li  a-na-sta-si) or Καλό Πάσχα (pronounced ka-lo  Pa-scha) with others, but on Saturday night as the clock strikes 12 a.m. and Holy/Great Saturday gives way to Easter Sunday, all will be exclaiming, Χριστός Ανέστη (Christ has Risen)!

Mπουρδέτο (με Σκορπιούς) — Bourdetto (Stewed Scorpion Fish)

Mπουρδέτο (με Σκορπιούς) — Bourdetto (Stewed Scorpion Fish)

During my first visit to my husband’s family in Greece back in 2005, my husband’s late grandfather would talk to me every chance he got about three things each and every time I saw him: his late wife (my husband’s Giagia Sofia), his grandson (my husband) and his favorite dish (Bourdetto). He would mention this dish repeatedly every time I would visit him in his apartment in Athens and then finally one warm October afternoon, I sat down to lunch with him to try his favorite dish.

Pulled Chicken Sliders

Pulled Chicken Sliders

The minute I saw this recipe on Elly’s site, Elly Says Opa!, I knew I had to try it. So, this Saturday when we had my sisters and cousins over for a much-needed get-together (including food, drinks, good conversation and great laughs), I did just that.
