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

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

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

Originally titled: Grilled Bread with Olive Paste, Marinated Anchovies and Red Florina Peppers. From the Summer 2006 edition of Greek Gourmet Traveler for Kerasma. Florina peppers are sweet pimiento peppers. Substitute sweet roasted red peppers if you can't get them.

Greek yogurt = Heaven. Basically, this is like frozen yogurt. Got this recipe from Kerasma.gr, the publishers of Greek Gourmet Traveler. Cook time depends on your ice cream maker or the temp. of your freezer.

Recipe #308328

From the July 11, 2008 Athens Plus magazine. "Ideal as a dip or a side dish with fish or chicken" Make sure you get "wild" daisy blooms. Zaar won't recognize daises as an ingredient so that is why they are posted along side the garlic in the ingredient list.

Recipe #334401

Summer 2006 edition of Kerasma's Greek Gourmet Traveler. This was originally called, "Pasteli with Greek Honey and Aegina Pistachios.' The purple of the lavender and the green and reddish purple of the pistachios looked BEAUTIFUL! Yield, prep and cook time are guesses.

From Kerasma's Food and Wine: An Odyssey Special Report. "The Greek version of macaroni and cheese, this simple dish is one of the classics of Greek rustic cuisine and found on mainland and islands. It also works well with thick spaghetti."

Recipe #314313

Nostimos is the Greek word for "tasty" and this is exactly what this pizza is! Take whatever cheese pizza you like best and add on this delicious combination of toppings for the tastiest pizza yet! I made this up 4 or 5 years ago when I was at my aunt's house in Utah with my little sister and she had given us money to order a pizza when she and my uncle had to go out for a military event.
