Peppy’s Pita Bread {Bread Machine Recipe}

Peppy's Pita Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Pita #Bread #Recipe #Breadmachine

Adapted from AllRecipes.com Puffy part-whole wheat, homemade pitas that split nicely in two if you cut them open. Easy to make and so good for easy lunches and suppers! I have to admit that when I made this recipe, I really had no idea why this was called “Peppy’s Pita Bread”. But I googled it […]


Greek Rice Salad

Greek Rice Salad Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mediterranean #Rice #Salad #Healthy #Glutenfree

Adapted from Healthy Recipes This is a recipe someone shared on my facebook page … and I was intrigued. One night when my daughter was cooking up some rice for another dish, I said to her “let’s make a double batch … I have a recipe I want to try” … and we did. I […]


Absolutely Fabulous Greek Salad

Absolutely Fabulous Greek Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delightful #Greek #salad #recipe

featuring this Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Salad Dressing from All Recipes I had a craving for a good Greek salad, but wanted to make it at home, so that I wouldn’t have to worry about what to do with the olives. I’m not a big fan of olives, but I always feel guilty if there’s nobody […]


Creamy Feta Chicken Artichoke Dip

Creamy Feta Chicken Artichoke Dip & Induction Cooking with Swiss Diamond Cookware ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #creamy #chicken #feta #artichoke #dip #recipe

It’s Superbowl Sunday today … I’m not watching the Superbowl because I’m not a big football fan, but I totally LOVE all the superbowl food. Instead of watching the big game, though, I’m trying out induction cooking, mostly because I want to be able to actually COOK at my monthly cooking classes at work, where we […]


Asiago Mushroom Moussaka

Asiago Mushroom Moussaka ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Greek #Lasagna #Recipe

with gluten free options. For those of you who have never had Moussaka, it’s sort of like a Greek version of lasagna, except it uses thin slices of eggplant in place of the noodles and it’s spiced in a lovely Greek sort of manner … and there’s no ricotta, but there’s a wonderful cheesy bechamel sauce on […]


Meaty Moussaka Stew with Cheesy Croutons

Meaty Moussaka Stew with Cheesy Croutons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Greek #Moussaka #Stew #Recipe

I’ve already made Moussaka this year with some of the fresh garden produce. This year, for the first time ever, my teenage daughter actually tried it — and ate every last bit of it, too! I was surprised, because she’s never been quite so daring culinarily, but she looked at me and said, “Mom … […]


Spanakopita Dip {Spinach & Feta with Dill}

Spanakopita Dip ~ Greek-style #Spinach, Feta, & Dill #Dip from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

A dip with all the flavors of one of my very favorite Greek foods: Spanakopita. Flavorful and low in calories, this dip is wonderful on toasted bread (especially a nice crusty bread like Ciabatta!) … and I’m thinking it would be marvelous as a sandwich spread too. This dip happened by accident … one of […]


Greek Pastitio (Meaty Macaroni w Creamy Bechamel)

Greek Pastitio ~ Macaroni wrapped in a Meaty Spiced Tomato Sauce with Creamy Parmesan Bechamel on top ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Macaroni  nestled in a meaty Greek-spiced tomato sauce with a creamy Parmesan Bechamel sauce on top. Also spelled Pasticcio. I hear that Pastitio is the Greek spelling, while Pasticcio is the Italian spelling. I’m not Greek or Italian, so I’m not quite sure what the “correct” spelling is and I’m sure I don’t make it […]


Greek-Style Baked Fish

Greek-Style Baked Fish

I am guest posting at Full Belly Sisters today! Justine is one of my favorite facebook foodie friends and when she asked me to share a fish dish, I immediately thought of this one. I’ve been meaning to blog it forever because it’s one of those dishes I have made over and over again over […]


Fabulous Baked Felafel

Felafel is a traditional middle eastern food: usually deep fried little balls of spiced chickpea batter. Crunchy, delicious, and actually healthy for you, even if you fry them. These felafel are baked, though, so they are even better for you. Packed with protein and vegies and all kinds of good herbs and spices. Don’t even […]


World’s Best Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce - Greek Cucumber Garlic Yogurt Sauce

I do sincerely have to thank Kalyn’s Kitchen for this Tzatziki Sauce recipe. I didn’t have everything that her recipe called for, so this is what I ended up using. You really have to go see her recipe for the step-by-step instructions with pictures. She did such an awesome job of it! World’s Best Tzatziki […]


Feta-stuffed Gyro Burgers

Feta-Stuffed Gyro Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

with the World’s Best Tzatziki Sauce from Kalyn’s Kitchen I eat a lot of vegetables and vegetarian-type meals, but every once in a while I need some MEAT. (Coincidentally, that always seems to fall on a Monday, when everyone is trying to eat meatless! … ah well, I eat meatless several times a week, so […]
