Mediterranean

Greek Lamb Tacos

Greek Lamb Tacos

It has been a long time since we’ve done anything with the Mediterranean flavors we love so much— Kalamata olives, feta, tzatziki and the like. Dustin whipped up a quick tzatziki sauce with greek yogurt, cucumber, and lemon juice early in the day to let the flavors meld (definitely some of the best tzatziki we’ve had…

Chicken Shawarma

Chicken Shawarma

October 18th this year was our five year anniversary of dating, and Erin was arriving home from her trip to Texas. I decided to recreate our first dinner together (sort of). On that now fateful night, I took Erin to a little Mediterranean restaurant near the movie theater called Skewers. Being the frugal date she…

Greek Nachos

Greek Nachos

These nachos might be one of the best savory things to ever come out of our kitchen. Seriously. These were ridiculously good and have lots of healthy ingredients. There are tons of recipes for greek nachos across the internet, so we decided to wing it and throw together all of our favorite Greek flavors.Pita bread turned…

Moussaka

Moussaka

Moussaka, where have you been all of my life? I’m not sure I had ever even heard of it until one day, Dustin ordered it while dining out in Seattle. It was the restaurant’s daily special, and the description on the board sounded delish, so he ordered it. I think I ate just as much…

Mediterranean-Inspired Fish and Grilled Artichokes + Caper Aioli

Mediterranean-Inspired Fish and Grilled Artichokes + Caper Aioli

Still learning about how to prepare our foods, we mistakenly grilled up a piece of flaky, white fish outside on the grill. Oops! Next time we’ll stick to salmon and tuna steaks. Despite this sometimes odd texture of the fish, it was still quite tasty, covered in tapenade. The real star of this show however…

Lamb and Feta Spaghetti and Meatballs

Lamb and Feta Spaghetti and Meatballs

After the success of our Mozzarella Stuffed Meatball Sliders, we wanted to stuff more cheese into meatballs. We decided feta in lamb meatballs was the perfect combination. We used the same basic recipe used for the meatballs in the sliders, just switching feta for mozzarella and ground lamb for beef. These meatballs weren’t quite as…

Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Tuna

Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Tuna

This meal, inspired by this recipe from Prevention magazine, is incredibly light and fresh. There are a lot of flavors, but they are simple and all go so well together. It’s all about the ingredients and how they work off of each other. First, bring a pot of water to boil and cook approximately six…

Mini Mediterranean Pizzas

Mini Mediterranean Pizzas

I think the only way Dustin and I will eat cucumber is when it its made into tzatziki sauce. I’ve tried cucumber multiple times in other ways, and no matter what, I can’t stand it. But when cucumber is mixed into Greek yogurt with some garlic, drenching a gyros sandwich, we love it. Funny how flavors…

Semi-Homemade Pita Chips

Semi-Homemade Pita Chips

There is no better afternoon snack than freshly made pita chips, hot out of the oven then doused in a layer of hummus. Pita chips and hummus are serious staples in our diet, so we thought it might be fun to try to make our own pita chips, reminiscent of those found at Mediterranean restaurants.…
