Featured Recipes

Homemade Gyros

Oh.my.god. These gyros. Okay – I am not going to lie – they are LABOR INTENSIVE. But with proper planning and a weekend to work with – they can be done. And they are TOTALLY worth it.

Spaghetti with Shrimp in Creamy Tomato Sauce

We originally had this over the summer, with garden tomatoes – but we’ve had it since then with ‘on the vine’ tomatoes from the grocery store and it is just as good! The tomato sauce has a VERY light flavor, and the cream adds a little richness. We love it and you will too.

*Maybe* the Best Lasagna Ever

I say maybe – because, well, I haven’t found another I love as much. But it’s possible, right? I got this one from a very good friend (and amazing cook!), Chera. It’s her family’s recipe, and it really is amazing!

Not low calorie…But amazing!
