Souvlaki

Souvlaki

There are many ways to make Souvlaki, which is basically meat on a skewer.  As we made our way around the country of Greece, sampling every single possible type, we discovered it is always delish!  I was reminded the other day, by my Souvlaki-loving husband that the great thing about cuisine in Greece (and I am sure other Mediterranean countries) is the […]

Kickin’ Wing Sauce

Kickin’ Wing Sauce

Straight from The Kicker himself…This Wing Sauce is one Greg has come up with over the years.  With the Super Bowl coming up (if the weather behaves) I figured now would be a great time to give this to you.  Being married to a football player, we have certainly had our share of Super Bowl Parties over the […]

Nafplio, Greece -My Favorite City

Nafplio, Greece -My Favorite City

How does one describe the city they would live in if given the chance?? We have been to some very cool places like Munich, Vienna, Salzburg…(all those are fabulous, by the way!)  I am completely a mountain girl who loves The Rockies, but Nafplion is just so enchanting.  During our Zesty Greek Travel Adventure, we were staying just up […]

Texas Taco Turkey Chili

Texas Taco Turkey Chili

  Growing up in the West (Colorado and Arizona) I just love smoky southwest flavors and various Chili recipes … This recipe is super quick and would be good with leftover roasted or smoked turkey too!   Ingredients: 1 Chopped Onion 2-3 Cloves Garlic (minced) 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil 1.5 lbs. Ground Turkey 1 Can Hominy (drained and rinsed) […]

The Red Pear Candles

When it comes to entertaining, setting the table can make all the difference in setting the mood as well as how the food tastes.  Does setting the table for guests intimidate you? Well, fear not!  With my simple guidelines, you will be able to create the perfect Tablescape and it doesn’t have to cost a lot.  […]

Six Weeks in Tolo

Six Weeks in Tolo

 The Zesty Greek Travel Adventure continues…. The Peloponnese is a beautiful area of Greece that includes several different regions.  We left our itinerary open, only booking a couple nights at a time when we first arrived in Greece, because our ultimate goal was to locate a good base camp with affordable long term lodging opportunities where we could take day […]

Chimichurri Time

Chimichurri Time

It’s Chimichurri Time! Chimichurri Sauce is just one of those things that I could honestly make everyday.  I am sure I tasted it in a Brazilian Steakhouse or some other venue prior to making it myself in Atlanta, but it was an article in the paper about grilling meats that suddenly made me want to make it. […]

The Pearly Pork and The Leeky Quinoa

The Pearly Pork and The Leeky Quinoa

It all began with a beer.  That is how it all happened.  The beer met the Pork Roast and then I felt like they should get a yummy group of flavors going and the next thing you know, we had one outrageous combination on our table.   I had some purple and white pearl onions loosely rolling around in the […]

Epidavros

Epidavros

Just a short drive from our Base Camp at Asini, is the Greek Village of Epidavros, which is also the location of The Ancient Theater of Epidavros.  Our day trip began with a lovely drive along a windy mountain road. We pulled off the road slightly for a picture of this Church…  Epidavros is part of the […]

2 Speedy No Bake Desserts

2 Speedy No Bake Desserts

When it comes to whipping up a quick and tasty dessert, I am all about not having to measure a lot of ingredients! Let’s face it…Occasionally, we have time to create a Coconut Cream Pie from scratch, but most likely your teenager jumps in the car Friday after school and suddenly wants to throw a sleepover.  You, […]
