Delicious! I have only made Moussaka once before, but it didn't seem quite right to me, but I found this recipe and thought I'd give it another try. I am very glad that I did. This recipe was amazing! I made the meat portion of the recipe the night before, as others suggested, to save on time. Yes, it was very time consuming, yes it was totally worth the time. I also did as other suggested and added 2 extra eggs (separated and blended in) and I used 2 medium sized eggplants and two potatoes. For the eggplant, I cut it into rounds and set them out with salt, then I broiled them on each side for about 3 minutes. It worked out wonderfully. The Moussaka was a delight for everyone who ate it.

I have never made baklava before and I had never tasted baklava before. I wanted to make a Greek style dessert to go along with the Greek style dinner I was making for my family. I came upon this recipe and I gave it a try. It was surprisingly simple and the result was a phenomenal dessert that everyone enjoyed. I followed the recipe, using 1 lb of walnuts and a few pistachios. I cut down a bit on the butter, but other than that it was just perfect. Delicious!

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies
Made this for diner tonight, it was delicious! Didn't know what garlic scapes were so just chopped up some garlic cloves. Also didn't have any lime juice, so omitted that. Used some dried basil leaves, crushed up and added fresh pepper to the chicken as it cooked then more fresh ground pepper to the zucchini and tomatoes as they cooked. Overall, this was a fantastic recipe that I and my boyfriend enjoyed thoroughly. Will definitelt be making again and again, Thanks!
