This cheesy potato casserole recipe was inspired by the version that I enjoyed at Dounias in Drakona, Crete. This mountain taverna was so unique. Most of the dishes were prepared in clay pots over wood fired stoves right in front of the main house and all the ingredients were raised or harvested right on the owner’s farm. We ate in a timber framed open-air pavilion across the street that looked out over the most beautiful views of high mountains and plunging valleys terraced with olive groves and covered with wild flowers and wild herbs.Read more →

One of the reasons I love Thanksgiving so much is its predictability of dishes that will delight my taste buds and fill my belly. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean and sweet potato casseroles and cranberry sauce are always on the table (even at my vegetarian Aunt Sydna’s Thanksgiving table). Traditional recipes withstanding, I still love to prepare a few Mediterranean dishes every year and I find they are always well received alongside the Turkey and gravy. I hope you enjoy these healthy Thanksgiving recipes that may even create some new traditions in the years to come.Read more →

Does olive oil go bad? The simple answer is yes, but it takes time and chances are you will use it long before it’s actually turned. I have only seen it happen once and it was olive oil I had given to my Mom. She opened it up, put it in the fridge and never used it. Three years later, I opened it because I was going to cook something and found that it had gone rancid.Read more →
