Watermelon Caprese Salad

This is summer in a bowl. I love caprese. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a mozzarella, tomato and basil salad. The combo is a classic and is so delicious. However, I’m giving it a little twist today and adding watermelon to the mix. Yup, watermelon, which is another favorite of mine to enjoy in the summer. The sweetness from the watermelon is a wonderful contrast to the savory mozzarella cheese and tomatoes. I have to say that it’s important it be fresh mozzarella for the right texture. If you want a little variety you could try strawberries either …

Tiropita – Greek Cheese Pie

This is the easiest and quickest Greek recipe I’ve made so far. You know, for a Greek recipe. If you asked 10 people how to make cheese pie (or tiropita), I bet you’d get 10 different answers.  I’m sure most, if not all, would be delicious in their own way.  I’ve eaten of variety of them. Since I’m Greek, I suppose that’s to be expected. If you’ve never had it before or don’t know what it is, it’s a savory Greek cheese pie where the filling is a cheese mixture, mostly made of feta cheese. I had never made my …

Simple Chickpea Salad

So do we make football food or a romantic dinner for two or a combination of both? I’m still working on that answer, but in the mean time, let me bring your attention to this chickpea salad. This salad is super simple and tasty. It’s a good …

Buffalo Caulifower

I have two recipes for you today. Do you want a scrumptious sandwich or appetizer? Or both? I don’t blame you if it’s hard to decide so I suggest both. I’m getting ahead of myself because I’m super excited about this recipe. I should tell you what’s going on here. From the pictures, this may look like a fish or chicken sandwich, but it’s actually vegetarian. It’s good old cauliflower. If you want sandwiches, then you slice a head of cauliflower into thick slices. The outer slices will fall apart so that’s a little annoying and also kind of unavoidable, …
