The easiest way to turn nachos into dinner is to pack them full of protein. Pulled pork and shredded chicken are classics, but there’s no reason plant-based eaters should miss out on the fun.

What Is A Meze?Skills
Last week I made a list of small bite meals around the world. One item on this list was meze, which is a collection of finger foods. A meze is a big part of the dining experience in Eastern Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Arab countries. The word “meze” means “taste” and/or “snack.” The concept is very similar to the tapas of Spain, but with different ingredients.

How To Make Stuffed Grape Leaves (Dolmades)Recipes
One hot, sunny day in late June I found myself in a tiny Arab market in Jaffa, Tel Aviv, sifting through a box of cucumbers. I was with Deanna and Danya, the lovely ladies behind the popular Israeli food blog Matkonation, and we were ingredient shopping for an afternoon cooking expedition. On the menu: stuffed grape (or vine) leaves made with spiced lamb, fresh mint, dried currants, and a cooling cucumber-yogurt sauce.

Lunch Recipe: Yogurt-Marinated Chicken & Creamy Greek SauceRecipes
On Monday I went a little over the top with my Chicken Cordon Bleu-Croque Monsieur. To prove that’s not how I always eat, I’m sharing a lighter meal that’s perfect to enjoy any day of the week. It’s a good thing my favorite Greek joint in Atlanta is a trek from my house, or I just might go there every day (and that could get a little dangerous). Without fail I order the lamb gyro plate with a zesty salad and garlic roasted coin potatoes.

Recipe: Greek Chicken Pasta with Olives and FetaRecipes
There’s more to this pasta dish than just chicken, olives, and feta. There are some artichoke hearts, fresh oregano, and a lemon vinaigrette — a whole mess of salty, tangy flavors. The idea for this recipe started with a leftover container of olives. I was imagining a pasta that mimicked a Greek salad, so we shopped for some feta cheese and a few fresh (pitted) olives to supplement the ones we had (which we had to pit — whew).

Tuna salad that’s loaded with mayo and stuffed between two slices of wheat bread doesn’t thrill me — this guy, however, absolutely does.

Taking inspiration from Greek ingredients and flavors, this tuna salad practically whisks you away to a breezy Greek island, even if you’re only digging into it at your desk.

Dark Magic: Can a Cup of Coffee Tell Your Future?Skills
When I was little, I was obsessed with knowing my future. What would I become? How tall would I be? Where would I live? Who would I marry? My parents indulged my curiosity by allowing me to go to fortune tellers, buy crystal balls, and borrow books from the library on how to read palms. My father told me that when I was old enough to drink coffee, I could have a Kafedzou read my future. He explained to me that a Kafedzou is a Greek woman who knows how to read your fortune in a coffee cup.

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Making BéchamelSkills
Béchamel might be the most versatile mother sauce — that class of sauces that are the backbone of classic French cooking — of all time. Made with milk, butter, and flour, it can become a gravy or a binder for casseroles, cheese sauces, and soufflés. And while it is arguably the easiest mother sauce to master, it is often the most maligned, being hastily made and suffering lumpiness as a result.

Make Better Chicken in 15 Minutes, Thanks to Greek YogurtSkills
In comparison to a hardworking brine, marinades seems like a hard sell when it comes to flavoring and tenderizing meat and poultry. But there’s one option out there that’s a little different. Greek yogurt does more than simply flavor the surface of chicken. Thanks to its acidity — different from the kind you find in citrus or vinegar — it tenderizes the meat, keeping it juicy and never rubbery.

5 Tips for Cooking with Greek YogurtSkills
I believe one of the most valuable tools you can have in the refrigerator is a tub of Greek yogurt.

I find myself reaching for it when I whip up lunch, dinner, and those in-between snacks, since it can be a swap-in for a number of ingredients. I never tire of the creamy, tangy flavor it brings to recipes.

I Thought Easter Was Boring. Then I Went to Greek Easter…Kitchen
I was 23 and living in New York City when my new roommate invited me to spend Greek Easter with her family on Staten Island.
