According to the calendar Spring has officially arrived! (A big shout-out to my east coast friends and family! You did it! You survived!)

So here we go: a whole new crop of fresh fruits and vegetables to work with in the kitchen. Easter is just around the corner and in the Greek home that is a whole feast in and among itself… more on that in the coming weeks. With the weather warming and the plants blooming it’s time for me to set some seasonal goals:

  1. Eat right;
  2. Log some more miles on my running shoes because swimsuit season is knocking on the door;
  3. Reward myself with a few new spring-worthy outfits! (1 and 2 need to seriously happen before 3 is even considered!)

Cake Please. Hold the Butter.

Olive-Oil-Cake-25There’s been some talk lately about Olive Oil Cake; it being “better for you” because the ingredients call for oil over butter. I was curious: Does the lack of butter turn out a cake also lacking taste? I’m a cake fan and if I am going to eat cake, I want to feel like I’m eating CAKE. Today my curiosity and question is answered.

How I Roll

Dolmathes-13

I happen have plenty of experience with rolling dolmathes. As a child, I would take leaves from my father’s fig tree, make a simple mud-mixture of dirt and water and roll dolmathes in my back yard play kitchen. This grown-up version of dolmathes tastes much better than my mud dolmathes… trust me. :)

World Cup Fever

Flag-2

So, the Greek soccer team is still alive at the World Cup tournament. I’m not sure how it all works, how some teams stay alive even though they lose a match. We’re a baseball and basketball home, not really a soccer home.

Happy Fava’s Day

Fava-7

Recently, I asked for my husband’s input regarding a “Greek-ified” Father’s Day recipe to write about. Father’s Day seems to be about BBQ and all the fixings. I knew I didn’t want to tamper with the BBQ tradition (mainly because backyard BBQ isn’t an option right now under my current living conditions!) but I was stumped as to what recipe I could contribute to the occasion.

Lamb and Pork Souvlakia

Lamb and Pork Souvlakia

Souvlaki-5
Living in a New York City apartment without a back yard or balcony to house a grill can be a challenge for a west coast transplant. Desperately wanting to welcome our long-awaited spring while celebrating Easter this past weekend I needed to be creative. As always, I like to keep things simple. Luckily I believe I’ve stumbled upon a basic Greek marinade that is ridiculously simple to prepare. Turns out it’s pretty delicious too. In addition, the awesome Cuisinart Griddler makes NYC apartment grilling achievable. {Yay!}
