Easy Cheese and Garlic Scones
This is a pretty good recipe, but it needed some tweaking. 2 tbps butter is WAY too little for scones--most recipes call for 6-8 tbps. I used 6. I also increased the cheese to 1 cup, and I used 1/3 each cotswold (sharp english cheddar), aged parmesan, and fotina. I tossed in 2 tbps chopped fresh rosemary, and increased the garlic to 3 cloves. With these additions, the recipe turned out perfectly...otherwise, I think it would have been too bland.

Great recipe! I also cut the sugar down to 2 cups (also 2.5 C of water), and I boiled lemonzest with the sugar/water mix to add a stronger lemon flavor to the whole thing. (Note: leftover lemon syrup is great for flavoring other drinks or making Italian sodas as well)

Tzatziki Sauce
I spent half a year in Greece, and this has all the ingrediants necessary for authentic tzatziki--but not quite in the right proportions. For the wateriness...make sure that you use full fat yogurt--greek yogurt (which is even creamier) if you can. This will taste awful with low or nonfat yogurt. The cucumber also MUST be strained. I usually peel and grate it over a strainer, then salt it to reduce the water content further. The recipe that I got in Greece uses a full bulb (roughly 12-15 cloves) of garlic rather than the 3 cloves called for here--and also 1/2 bunch of dill, finely chopped rather than a teaspoon. Overall, the recipe is a bit bland--but that can be easily amended
