Spanakopita (Spinach Pie)
If there is a single dish that will get you hooked on Greek cuisine, it is Spanakopita. This spinach pie uses layers phyllo and a feta-spinach mix to create a delicious snack or light main dish. It's fantastic and surprisingly easy to make. Because you'll use pre-made phyllo, you don't have to worry about making this complicated but flavorful dough.
The filling to put between the buttery layers phyllo consists of spinach, fresh herbs, onions, spices, and feta cheese. Bake for 25 to 45 minutes depending on if you're baking it fresh or had it frozen in your freezer. Ready in 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Homemade Wine Recipe
Get a gallon jug, preferably glass but plastic will do. Clean it out good. Smell it. Someone may have kept gasoline in it. Wash the jug with soap (NOT detergent), rinse with baking soda in water and—finally—rinse with clear water.
Put a pint and a half to two pints of honey in the jug (the more honey, the stronger the wine), fill with warm water and shake.
Add a pack or cake of yeast—the same stuff you use for bread—and leave the jug uncapped and sitting in a sink overnight. It will foam at the mouth and the whole thing gets pretty sticky at this point.
After the mess quiets down a bit, you're ready to put a top on it. NOT, I say NOT, a solid top. That would make you a bomb maker instead of a wine maker.
What you have to do is come up with a device that will allow gas to escape from the jug without letting air get in. Air getting in is what turns wine mixtures into vinegar.
One way to do the job is to run a plastic or rubber hose from the otherwise-sealed mouth of the jug, thread the free end through a hole in a cork and let the hose hang in a glass or bowl of water. Or you can make a loop in the hose, pour in a little water and trap the water in the loop to act as a seal.
Now put your jug of brew away about two weeks until it's finished doing its thing. It's ready to bottle when the bubbles stop coming to the top.
Old wine bottles are best. You must use corks (not too tight!) to seal the wine as they will allow small amounts of gas to escape. The wine is ready to drink just about any time.
You can use the same process with fruits or whatever, except that you'll have to extract the juice and, maybe, add some sugar. You'll also find that most natural fruit will start to ferment without the yeast and will be better that way.
Once you've made and enjoyed your first glass of wine, no matter how crude, you'll be hooked.
Think you are too old to be eating string cheese? Think again. Cut some string cheese into quarters and stick a piece into some biscuit dough. When those come out of the oven, brush on some garlic parmesan butter and you have a delicious side or appetizer. These would be amazing with the meatball subs from above. You could dip them in the leftover sauce. These take about 15 minutes from start to finish.
Cut up zucchini into quarter inch slices, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top, and bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees. That is literally the entire recipe. Could this get any easier? They would make a good alternative to chips with a sandwich. Or even take them to work for a quick snack.
You basically cook baby carrots in brown sugar, butter, and water for about 12 minutes. That way that sweetness gets all the way through the carrots. These look amazing and will be done in about 15 minutes. I’d like to try these with the Honey Glazed Salmon from above.
This takes less than 10 minutes to make and looks great. Just saute corn with some butter, garlic, parsley, and feta cheese. Might go well with the gyros above, but really this is a very versatile side dish.
11 Best Thai Vegetarian Recipes | Easy Thai Vegetarian Recipes
Thai food ain't about simplicity. It's about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish. Like a complex musical chord it's got to have a smooth surface but it doesn't matter what's happening underneath. Simplicity isn't the dictum here, at all." -- David Thompson, author of the award-winning cookbook, Thai FoodOne of the things that makes Thai food so sensational and favourite with almost everyone who tries it for the first time is its spell-binding aroma and a mix of flavours that are usually so dissimilar yet create a delicious harmony on our palate.Ever wonder what makes Thai cuisine so special? It's the meticulous and measured play of herbs and spices that makes it truly exquisite. From lemongrass, Thai holy basil, shrimp paste, kaffir lime, to galangal, coconut milk, fish sauce and a host of local condiments that cook up a traditional Thai delicacy. One of the best things about Thai cuisine is the flexibility it offers in its preparations, for instance, you have the fiery red meat curry which can easily be transformed into a vegetarian version without compromising much on the authentic taste.Rice is a staple in Thailand, a traditional accompaniment with Thai curries, soups, fried vegetables that can often be replaced with noodles. If you ever happen to be in Thailand, you shouldn't miss out on their sticky rice or puffed rice cakes.Thai food borrows heavily from China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Laos, Burma, France, Portugal and other neighbouring countries including India. The Portuguese would take away the credit to introduce chillies to Thailand whereas noodles and steel wok were brought in by the Chinese.There is a lot of stewing, marinating, baking and grilling that goes into Thai cuisine. The culinary methods of frying, stir frying and deep-frying were introduced by the Chinese. One of the most interesting techniques widely followed in Thai cooking is the pounding or coarsely bruising of herbs instead of chopping them. This ensures all essential oil to seep into the preparation infusing the meal with fresh aroma of herbs.People of Thailand aren't huge fans of big cuts of meats in their food hence minced and shredded form of meat is highly popular in Thailand. Naem, minced pork sausage is a local hit in north Thailand- something you must not miss out on, when in Thailand.What's in Store for a Vegetarian?In Thailand you will find restaurants that serve pure vegetarian Thai food these can easily be identified by their yellow banner with a Thai inscription on it in red. Thai vegetarian food uses a lot fruits like jackfruit, papaya, mangosteen, Burmese grapes, rose apples, and durian. The vegetables used are the same that go into making the regular Thai fair including bamboo shoots, lotus stems, Chinese cabbage, straw mushrooms, shiitake, eggplant, etc. Thai curry pastes, galangal, lemongrass, balsam leaves and a host of spices like phrik nu chillies, blend in perfectly to create zingy curries, aromatic broths, fresh salads and crispy stir fries.Much to your surprise, most Thai food is healthy and low on calorie as it is largely stewed, stir fried or grilled. It is a delighting experience to be able to taste a wonderful blend of meats, veggies, herbs and spices - that is what Siamese cuisine stands for which closely translates into Thai food. Laced with fragrant herbs and mouthwatering spices, either way, Thai cuisine is set to delight you.

Easy Cheeseburger Casserole
- You’ll start off by cooking and draining the pasta according to the package directions.
- Next, brown the beef in a large skillet with a little garlic powder, salt and pepper. You could also throw in a diced onion if you’d like.
- Once the beef is brown, toss the pasta shells, tomato soup, a little water and half of the cheese in with the beef and mix it all up.
- Pour it into a large 9吉 greased baking dish.
- Top with the remaining cheese and then bake covered with foil in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes to brown the cheese. I also like to turn the oven to broil for the last few minutes to make it a little toasty.
This easy casserole makes enough to serve 6-8 people, depending on the appetites. We usually have leftovers the next day, and it’s just as good reheated in the microwave!
I suppose you could also top it with a little sour cream, diced tomatoes, jalapeños, or anything else you’d like but it really doesn’t need it. It’s surprisingly packed full of flavor considering it only has a few ingredients.
Looking for quick and easy dinner recipes for the family? This simple casserole dish is perfect for busy weeknights, picky eaters and hungry husbands! It's not only delicous, it's also budget friendly, easy to make and a family favorite. It's made with just ground beef, pasta shells, tomato soup, cheese and seasoning to taste. Yum!
- 1 (1lb) box medium pasta shells
- 1lb ground beef
- 2 (10oz) cans tomato soup
- 2 cups shredded cheddar
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1/2 cup water
- garlilc, salt & pepper to taste
Cook and drain the pasta according to the package directions.
Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease and 9x13 baking dish.
In a large skillet, brown and chop the ground beef with garlic powder, salt and pepper (or any seasoning of your choice).
Add the cooked pasta, tomato soup, a half cup of water and HALF of the cheese to your skillet with the browned beef stir and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
Pour the mixture into your greased dish and top with the remaining cheese.
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes (I also like to turn the broiler on for the last 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese).
Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- You don't have to use mozzarella for this dish if you'd rather use 100% cheddar instead. Your preference! I like the mozzarella because it makes the cheese stringy.
- You can also add a diced onion or onion powder to the beef mixture. My family doesn't care much for onion, so I leave it out.
