    Original recipe from "Bread-Making" By the Greek philosopher Chrysippus in the second century B.C. Recopied into "The Philosopher's Banquet" by Athenaeus in the second century A.D. (This recipe has gone through the ages!) Recipe "modernazation" found in "The Philospher's Kitchen" by Francine Segan.

    Recipe #246749

    This is my mom's recipe for Spanakopita. She makes it with more feta than spinach, just the way I like it. (I made the spanakopita in the picture with my friend Seth in my dorm's kitchen.)

    Recipe #218012

    This is my mom's recipe :-D Ground lamb is my choice but it's ok to substitute ground beef. I don't like potatoes in my moussaka so I leave them out all together, and it cuts down on overall time I have to spend in the kitchen. You can add them to your dish if you'd like, THEY ARE OPTIONAL, so I included them here. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Check out the Moussaka potato debate here in the Greek Forum: http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=219564

    Recipe #218585

    This goes great on pitas or Lavash, chicken or fresh vegetables. Yum! I was trying to find a substitute for Trader Joe's Spicy Feta Dip because my family will no longer buy it because it contains canola oil. This is not as thick and clumpy due to the fact I put it in the blender. I'll try to give the closest measurements I can because I made it by just throwing things into the blender.

    Recipe #218215

    My mom's tabouli recipe that has been tweaked - the tabouli was a year long work in progress! The first picture is of the recipe prior to the major tweak - and it wasn't my favorite. Now, with the improved recipe, I could literally live off this stuff - especially when I pare it with Recipe #218012 or spread it in my Recipe #331572!

    Recipe #232941

    Pita bread, Recipe #339204 , Recipe #232941... nothing can be better. I eat this for breakfast when I can. I love it with my mom's Recipe #339166!

    Recipe #331572

    From the Summer 2006 edition of Kerasma's Greek Gourmet Traveler.

    Recipe #315043

    Found this at Australian Gourmet Traveller online. This was sort of a "two part" recipe so I split it up - tartlets as one recipe and the ice cream as the other. Here is the tartlet recipe: Recipe #315379. "Recipe by Jonathan Kemble, Star of Greece restaurant (edited by Adelaide Lucas)" Cook/Freeze time completely depends on your ice cream maker.

    Recipe #315271

    Originally named: Grilled Bread With Creamed Florina Peppers & Smoked Trout. From the Greek Gourmet Traveler Summer 2006 edition for Kerasma. The picture of this was GORGEOUS (and that's saying something because I LOATHE fish.) I just wanted to eat them right off the page! It looked like a piece of bruschetta topped with the crushed peppers and a sliver of fish.

    Recipe #314064

    From Kerasma's Greek Gourmet Traveler Summer 2007 Edition. This recipe is from Life Gallery Spa's Chef, Dimitris Lemonis. This recipe was part of the "Spa Foods" article.

    Recipe #314710

    Adapted from Feasting and Fasting in Crete, Delicious Mediterranean Recipes, by Diana Farr Louis (Kedros, Athens, 2001). Reprinted in the Summer 2006 Greek Gourmet Traveler for Kerasma. A word about "Rusks" known in the Greek as "Paximadia": "Twice-baked breads have been around since Roman times, but in Crete they are both staple and luxury. Made of every conceivable type of flour from refined white to coarse wheat and barley, they accompany every meal, crumbled into salads or springing up in sauces. Smaller sweet rusks flavored with coriander, cloves, and mastic were such a delicacy they were served at weddings until recently. Studded with nuts or currants, seasoned with juices and spices, they are still served with coffee, herbal teas, or raki at any time of day."

    Recipe #314060

    Now I love potato salad and this one is so different than my favorite - German potato salad :) From the September 19, 2008 edition of Athens' Plus Magazine. It was listed to go with a meal of European Barracuda!

    Recipe #331261

    From "The World Of Greece: Odyssey" Magazine - May/June 2008 issue. This recipe is for the traditional Greek "Glyko Koutaliou" or "Spoon Sweet." "Syrup-laden baklavas, karydopitta, or even the thicker, cakey ravani-style desserts are served on holidays and special occasions, but the everyday sweet is customarily a spoonful of a glyko koutaliou. To this day, spoon sweets are a traditional offering, literally a sweet welcome for visitors into the Greek home, whether they’ve come for a chat or on a more formal occasion. Spoon sweets are also served at the village kafeneion, a teaspoon-sized serving on a small dish set before the guest or visitor with a glass of iced water and a cup of strong Greek coffee. Traditionally each household put up their own spoon sweets according to the availability of fruit in season. Sweets were made in small quantities, usually to recipes handed down from one generation to the next." Spoon sweet can be eaten by itself or spooned over yogurt or ice cream. Yield is a guess.

    Recipe #314789

    Original recipe from "On Cookery" By the Greek philosopher and astronomer Heracleides in the third century B.C. Recipe "modernazation" found in "The Philospher's Kitchen" by Francine Segan.

    Recipe #246729

    From Kerasma's Food & Wine: An Odyssey Special Report. "The ubiquitous tyropitta bears little resemblance to the dizzying variety of savory and sweet cheese-based Domokou and honey pies popular throughout Greek regional cuisine. In this version, from the Cycladic island of Folegandros, the filling is flavored with onions–almost as strong a presence as the feta–and encased in a thick bread crust. Kalasouna was traditionally made on Saturdays, the same day on which bread was baked, since the shell was made from a piece of the leavened dough to which some olive oil was added. This version is slightly simpler, but as tasty." Prep time is a guess.

    Recipe #314125

    I'm always on the lookout for something Greek and delicious sounding. I found this in the September 16, 2008 edition of the Dallas Morning News. This recipe was accompanied by an article stating, "Kathy Naftis of Colleyville, a parishioner at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Dallas, says her recipe for Chicken Kapama has been in her family for 100 years." This is her recipe. This pasta, Macaroni No. 2 can be found here:http://www.greekinternetmarket.com/0602-05005.html or at your local Greek market.

    Recipe #331191

    Think of this as what a college student makes after the tuition and books bill has been paid. Not really a dish served for guests - just a soup you make when you're low on ingredients. Has a very strong "Greek" flavor and is more oily than other soups. From Adventures in Greek Cooking: The Olive and The Caper by Susanna Hoffman

    Recipe #260659

    I LOVE RICE PUDDING!!! (Despite not liking rice.) From "The Grecian Plate." Edited (8 cups was too much too when I cooked it) This pudding is very thick (and YUMMY)

    Recipe #308377

    Found this recipe (and description) at Australian Gourmet Traveller (yes, with 2 "L"s) online. "These can be filled with a sweetened mixture of fresh cheeses, as in this recipe, while regional variations may be filled with tahini, ground walnuts and cinnamon in Thrace, or with dried fruit and either finely chopped candied bergamot, orange rind or glacé figs in the Peloponnese." Recipe by Rodney Dunn. Prep time is a guess.

    Recipe #315266

    Wonderful sweet cake from The Book of Greek Cooking by Lesley Mackley(present from my second cousin.)
