Spinach, Ricotta & Feta Filo Pies

  It’s a veritable vegetarian feast – plus there’s nothing like a hot oven to warm the rest of the house. It’s almost school holiday time here which means hungry hoardes hovering in the kitchen and a constant stream of food being sent out and devoured. Honestly, it’s like a metronome in my house – … Continue reading

Spinach & Ricotta Triangles

  Lunch time with kids can frankly be quite boring. The same sandwich, day in day out, is more than this woman can cope with…….you see, at the start of the school year I get all gung-ho about producing imaginative lunches. It’s all quinoa, tabouleh and burrito bowls in January. By the end of the … Continue reading

Rocket & Pomegranate Salad

Tis the season…fa la la la la etc. Have you ever noticed that men seem to enjoy the silly season far more than the ladies? Perhaps that’s because the lion share of duties seems to fall squarely on the shoulders of feminine persuasion. Well, for the next few posts I’m going to pop up some … Continue reading

Broccoli, Silver Beet & Feta with Brown Rice

I like to do a big batch cook off on Sundays to prepare for the week ahead. No excuses for bad choices if I have a whole heap of good ones already made in my fridge just waiting to jump into my belly. I can’t claim the origins of this recipe….Aunty Kathy had been staying … Continue reading

Steak & Pomegranate Salad with salsa verde and feta cream

I know spring is in the air when the pomegranates start making their way onto my plate. I love their crunch and their juicy flavour and the fact that they are seriously good for you. They’re a great source of vitamin C and dietary fibre and a great antioxidant (plus they’re really pretty). This salad … Continue reading

Greek Bruschetta a’la husband

The husband doesn’t get a lot of time in the kitchen at our house. Now that’s not out of sheer laziness it’s just that it is my happy place and he really doesn’t get a look in most days. Don’t get me wrong, he can be ridiculously lazy in some respects, but in this particular … Continue reading

Lamb Cutlets with Strawberry, Mint & Feta Salad

    I know it’s a little weird….a gorgeous lamb salad recipe with, of all things, strawberry, but there is something about this combination of flavours that just seems to fit. Even the husband, a dedicated non-fruit eater, tucks into this one. The strawberry and balsamic are a match made in heaven, a little Hansel … Continue reading

Greek Nachos

I do love to gather a crowd and feed them all good & proper. This dish is a winner with my entire family from the ground (little ones) up (oldies). It’s super fast, simple and as I often already have most of these ingredients in the pantry/fridge, it can be  fantastic for those unexpected guests. … Continue reading

Lamb Kofta with Greek Salad & Tzatziki

All Hands on Deck! I like to make lamb kofta during the school holidays…..it’s a hands on experience that I can get the kids involved in. Lots of grating and mixing with hands. I do the chopping, they do the measuring and the mixing and shaping. My theory is if they have a sense of … Continue reading

Zucchini Fritters & poached eggs with spinach, rocket and tomato relish

We all know that we are supposed to have at least 5 serves of vegetables a day. Sometimes it can be tricky squeezing 5 full serves into a your daily menu. On the weekend when I have a little more time, I like to fit  a good couple of serves into breakfast. These zucchini fritters … Continue reading
