Bacon Ranch Pea Salad
I used blue cheese instead of cheddar and used Greek yogurt instead of mayo. YUM!!

Traditional Gyro Meat
Didn't use marjoram, rosemary or thyme and instead added allspice and coriander to the recipe. Very similar flavors to what we eat here in Europe. I shaped the ground meat mixture into oblong shapes and bbq'd them instead of cooking on a loaf pan. Saves much time and mess. Served with thinly sliced red onion, crumbled feta, sliced tomatoes and tzatziki sauce on flat bread.

Chocolate-Filled Crescents
I like it better with a spoonful of Nutella in the middle instead of chocolate chips.
