Chicken Lo Mein

Are you looking for an easy week night dinner?  If you are, and it’s not cereal, then I might have an idea for you.  🙂 It seems like I’m always looking for new dinner recipes.  Maybe it’s because I get bored easily, unless it’s pizza, because pizza is always a good idea. I was excited when I found this recipe because it looked easy and delicious.  Plus, I was excited when I realized that I had all of the ingredients with exception of the chicken.  I’m not exactly a fan of chicken, but there are exceptions, like this chicken lo …

Mini M&M Cookies

Cookies are always a good idea.  If you read my blog you’ve probably heard me say that before. Last Sunday, I celebrated Greek Orthodox Easter.  There was SO much food and it was all so delicious.  Easter is my favorite holiday when it comes to food.  My mom makes traditional Greek dishes like pastitsio, spanakopita, lamb, potatoes, and tzatziki.  I’ve been known to make a pretty mean pastitsio and spanakopita, too.  😉 Tsoureki (Easter bread)  and koulourakia (Easter cookies) are two of my favorite things of all time.  All time.  I’m rationing out the last few kouralakia that my mom gave me to try to …

M&M Sugar Cookie Bars

Who has leftover Easter candy? We have a boat load of pastel colored M&Ms.  I don’t know exactly how much a boat load is but it sounds like a lot.  Last week I wanted a normal size bag of M&Ms but the grocery store only had the ginormous size available.  The only downside with having leftover candy is that I want to sneak an M&M (or a few) whenever I pass by the bowl of them on the kitchen counter.  Is that really a downside?  😉 My husband and I spent Easter day with his family.  I like to give …

Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Salad

Happy Friday! I’m excited to share today’s recipe with you because it’s not often that I find a chicken recipe that is worthy of blogging about.  I’m super picky about the texture and taste of chicken.  If I get a gristly bit or it tastes too chicken-y then I don’t want it.  I basically turn into a 5 year old and say that I never want chicken again.  In reality it’s just a few days or weeks before I give chicken another chance, but I’m always worried about what will skeeze me out next with chicken. Anyway, now that I’m …

Mediterranean Salad

This is my favorite salad (until I have a new favorite, of course 😉 ). I was craving Greek salad the other day.  Yes, craving a salad sounds weird, especially because I crave foods like bagels and pizza on a regular basis.  You better believe that I’m going to take advantage of this healthy craving while it lasts.  I love a traditional Greek salad made with tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese, but I wanted to kick it up a notch. I still kept this salad lettuce free, but I added a bunch of other colorful veggies like Kalamata olives, and pepperoncini …
