Tzatziki, the yogurt and cucumber dip.

The dips of all dips.

The condiment that you can eat with almost anything.

The simplest, easiest, and most delicious Greek dip.

I am sure that you have at least heard of it and most of you have probably tasted it. And then some of you will understand how delicious it is and can relate to my obsession with making it. We usually always have some fresh, homemade tzatziki in the house. It really can be almost eaten with anything. Sometimes we eat it for breakfast on bread, sometimes as a snack with sliced or chopped fresh veggies, but we most commonly eat it with lunch or dinner no matter what we are having.


This is a classic Greek recipe, a very warm, hearty and traditional Greek dish, easily one of Greece’s best homemade comfort foods!!!

I would describe pastistio as a rich Greek lasagna. It is a baked pasta dish layered with seasoned meat and topped with a rich béchamel sauce. Pastitsio in Greek comes from the Italian word, pasticcio, which means “mess or hodgepodge”. I will be honest and tell you that it is kind of an undertaking while you are preparing it, so be in the mood to cook and work up a big appetite, it is sure to satisfy the hungriest of people.

Stuffed peppers are called γεμιστές πιπεριές in Greek, these are basically any colored peppers filled with rice, meat, and sometimes maybe even some spinach too! This delightful dish is usually baked in the oven (rarely they are fried) and surrounded by potatoes which cook ever so tenderly along side of the main dish. Top them all off with some crumbled feta and a few olives, and you are ready to serve an impressive and satisfying meal for everyone!
