Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
This recipe just wasn't for me. I love all of the ingredients, but somehow the finished product didn't impress me or my husband.

Russian Green Bean and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I loved it, as did my Polish mother in law. Husband hated it, but only because he doesn't like saurkrout. If you like the ingredients in this soup, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Greek Lamb-Feta Burgers With Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
These are fantastic! I made some changes: did not roast the garlic (I don't like roasted garlic), substituted plain yogurt for sour cream and dried dill for mint in the sauce; added a pinch each of thyme and marjoram to meat. I fried them in a pan and served over a bed of raw spinach and topped them with sliced onions, cherry tomatoes, sauce, and feta. The result was like a lamb burger salad. I'll definitely make this again, and it would make a special meal for guests. Thanks!

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I would give this 10 stars! One of my new favorite foods. After just one bite my (meat-and-potatoes) husband begged me to make this weekly! The lemon and feta on top totally makes the dish.

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Yum! I used lots more lemon and chickpeas than the recipe called for. I'll definitely make it again!

Baklava

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
The flavors are great but the sugar syrup mixture turned to hard toffee after I poured it on! Next time I'll just drizzle honey on top. Other than that, this tastes very authentic.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I read all of the reviews before I attempted this one...I am just learning to bake leavened breads. Even after much research, my dough refused to rise. I proofed the yeast with water at 110 degrees, used a 40/60 ratio of whole wheat to white flour, measured precisely and kneaded for 9 minutes. I really don't know why it wouldn't rise. I will try again, though...the idea of baking pitas at home is well worth the trial and error until I get it right. (My rating is based on my finished product, not the recipe itself).

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
The flavors are spot on--delicious! The texture wasn't exactly like that in my favorite Greek restaurants. I'm not sure if that's because I used a blender to puree the meat (I don't have a food processor) or if it's just not possible to re-create that texture at home without a spit to grill the meat. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of the blender. I will double the salt next time I make this. I served with homemade pita and tzatziki, both recipes from this site. My husband raved, and begged me to make this again.

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
Really yummy--the flavors are well balanced. I added some finely chopped cucumber, too. It was a bit too runny for my taste, so next time I will use Greek yogurt instead of plain. Will be making this often!
