Quick & Easy Pickled Eggs

The words “pickled” and “egg” don’t seem like they should belong together. For me, pickled anything was supposed to exist exclusively in the world of plant material and never cross over to anywhere else. I might have been wrong about that.

Sweet Cream Biscuits

I love me a good biscuit. Drown it in gravy (but only if it’s actually good), or slather it with butter then top it with honey, and I’m a happy person.

Egg Salad with Capers

Out of all the staples most people have in their kitchens, eggs are likely the most underappreciated. Think about it, who really gets excited about eggs? I mean, aside from me.

Prasopita (Greek Leek and Feta Pie)

Leeks were almost completely unknown to me until adulthood. They are not a commonly used item here in the U.S., which is really a shame. I say it’s time for that to change!

Lemony Poppy Seed & Greek Yogurt Muffins

Pasta Flora (Greek Jam Tart)

Each year we harvest a lot of fruit from our backyard orchard. Each year, I make a lot of jams and jellies. Each year I realize we don’t eat a lot of it. Hmmmm…

Spinach & Feta Galette

As a child, I was not a fan of spinach, or anything that contained it, and no amount of watching Popeye cartoons could make me change my mind. Thank goodness for adulthood.
