Avgolemono (Greek Lemon-Chicken Soup)

This is my take on a classic Greek favorite. It’s one way I use up the remains of a rotisserie chicken. It’s also one of my favorite go-to soups when I’m sick. The combination of chicken soup with all the lemon in it always helps me get over a cold extra fast (at least I…

Fish Stew

This is a new recipe I’ve recently created when I was accidentally sent some halibut I hadn’t ordered. So, I came up with a tasty fish stew! INGREDIENTS 2-3 Tbsp olive oil 1 onion 2-3 large cloves of garlic 6 oz can of tomato paste 5 tomatoes, diced 5 small to medium sized russet potatoes,…

Crockpot Lamb Stew

This is a quick and delicious meal. It’s quick to throw all the ingredients into a crockpot and come home to a delicious smelling dinner. This stew goes very well with some fresh baked bread or rolls and either a hearty dark beer or a glass of red wine. INGREDIENTS 1lb Lamb, diced 1 cup…

For the savory version, they go great with left-over gravy or apple sauce. INGREDIENTS Mashed potatoes Eggs (about 1 egg per cup of mashed potatoes) Flour (about…

This is a very quick and simple dish that quick and easy to prepare, with lots of flavor. An alternative version would be to include slices of fresh lemon on the chicken. INGREDIENTS 4 Boneless Breasts of…

Spinach Lasagna

This is a healthier take on another classic dish. I’ve started working with the “no boil” lasagna noodles because I find it a lot easier to place them in the casserole dish than pre-cooked noodles. You can take this one step further and make your own marinara sauce, but I like to keep my recipes…

Sloppy Joes

This is a homemade take on an American classic, while still being quick and easy to make. This way you can ensure most of your ingredients are organic and control the amount of salt that is added as well, plus the fresh ingredients really perk up this old standard. INGREDIENTS 1 lb of ground beef…
