Mediterranean Greek Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This is the perfect summer salad! Great for a Greek night at home or for a summer picnic. Holds up very well. And, the quantity of ingredients can be modified to your taste. I use Kalamata olives instead of the black for a little more authentic taste. My only problem is how much juice comes out of the veggies. It doesn't distort the flavor, just doesn't look very pretty. I think next time I'll try letting them drain in a colander overnight before I add the feta and oil. This is a fairly time-consuming recipe because of all the chopping, but can easily be made ahead of time.

Kalua Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This is a great (and simple) way to make pulled pork! I usually get a 5 lb shoulder and cook in my Crockpot overnight for 12-16 hrs. I leave out the water - not needed. The pork makes it's own juices. It always comes out moist and flavorful. I shred the pork and add back juices as needed to keep moist. I always serve this with BBQ sauce on the side, but I prefer it plain (and sometimes just eat it with a fork)!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
The only scone recipe I use!! This recipe is so versatile, I make all kinds of different scones depending on the season and my family's moods. Great with any dried fruits. I add a cup of pureed pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice in the fall (leaving out the raisins). I use molasses, ginger, and cinnamon at Christmas time for a gingerbread flavor. Each modification does require some tweaking of the flour, however. My son routinely asks for these on Saturday mornings, and they are great leftover! Just pop in microwave for 10-20 seconds.

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon-Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
I made this for Easter dinner and got rave reviews. I substituted red onion for the shallot and left off the almonds (due to nut allergy), but otherwise this was great! Made double the dressing just so I would have leftovers for dinner salads this week.

Greek Lamb-Feta Burgers With Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
We love making these burgers, along with the Mediterranean Greek Salad, for a "Greek night" at home. Only changes I make: I use plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream, and I break up the burgers after grilling and put in a pita to make a gyro-style sandwich. This has become one of my family's favorite dinners!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
These cookies truly are the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe! My husband and I can never agree on our chocolate chip cookies - he likes them chewy, I like them soft - but we both love these! Made them exactly like the recipe states, no changes. There is NO need to refrigerate this dough, like others I've made. Enjoy!!
