Cauliflower Fritters with Tzatziki Sauce

Simple Cauliflower Fritters with Tzatziki sauce www.lemonsforlulu.com

Cauliflower and potatoes are pan fried and served with a simple tzatziki sauce! It doesn’t get better than this! I was such a simpleton when I was a kid.  I mean, it didn’t take much for me to be thoroughly entertained.  I suppose that’s a good trait to have growing up in the 70’s.  The decade of only 4 tv channels that mostly aired adult programming.  No 24 hour Disney Channel for me. One of my favorite ways to pass the time involved a … Continue reading →

Greek Hand Pies

A savory hand pie filled with ground beef, veggies and Greek seasoning

A savory hand pie that starts with a pre made crust and is stuffed with pungent Greek flavor! Know what I hate?  I hate when I'm watching a movie or a show and someone jumps out of a car or runs out of a house and leaves the door wide open.  I will sit there and obsess over that open door for ages.  Seriously, it bugs me!  How hard is it to write into the script "shut door".  That's what we do in real life.  We shut doors! And if there's a … Continue reading →

Stove Top Pastitsio

Stove Top Pastitsio made with Greek Yogurt

This stove top Pastitsio is a simple and light version of the very traditional Greek pasta dish. "All in good time", "Good things come to those who wait", "Patience is a virtue",  "There will be no wine before it's time", wait that last one is just plain silly!  There's ALWAYS time for wine"!!  But those previous sayings always get me while I am  anxiously waiting for my absolute favorite Greek dinner!  I … Continue reading →

Greek Chicken Souvlaki Salad

Greek Chicken Souvlaki Salad

 I love serving my family simple chicken recipes.   This Greek chicken souvlaki recipe is exactly that! It's light and healthy but so flavorful, especially atop a Mediterranean salad with tzatziki dressing! I am not a fashionista.  My daily uniform consists of jeans and tee shirts.  I swap the shirts for fleece in the winter and I swap the jeans for shorts in the summer.  Simple.  I like it that way.  I don't own many dresses or … Continue reading →

Green Goddess Dip

Easy light dip made with avocados and Greek yogurt! www.lemonsforlulu.com

Dips are one of my favorite things to eat.  But I prefer easy dips!  Serving a healthy dip is even better! I made this Green Goddess veggie dip with Chobani yogurt!  It's easy, healthy and delicious!   Going green can mean so many things.  It can mean being environmentally conscious, or bringing out our inner Irish.  For me it means eating green food.  A few weeks ago I made pistachio pudding cookies which were the perfect verdant … Continue reading →

Mediterranean Dip

IMG_1668

Two to Three nights a year, my family enjoys snack night for dinner.   These special occasions include Christmas Eve, New Years Eve and Super Bowl Sunday.  It is pure gluttony.  We eat with total abandon!  We all really look forward to these nights because anything goes.  However, there are a few must haves on the menu.  These include my guacamole (my 8 year old is an avocado fiend) and something with Velveeta.  We all know it isn't a party … Continue reading →

Chicken Souvlakia (Greek Kabobs) with Tzatziki Sauce and Greek Potato Salad

Greek Chicken Kabobs

Last time we went to visit my in laws, my mother in law shared some pages from her childhood diary.  It was great!  She revealed little snippets of her life, like what she did for fun,to  who's house she went to play and even what she ate.  What struck us a hilarious is how often she ate ham.  There were several passages where she wrote "we had ham  It was good".  I figured if a child recorded it in her diary, then it MUST have been really good … Continue reading →
