This looks so appetizing. I make patata salata all the time with the traditional Greek spices, but intrigued by the use of wine and crushed fennel seeds. Will definitely try this version! Thanks for the new idea!!

What are your favorite Greek Christmas recipes? Mine is roast lamb :)

Slow roast lamb is excellent for the winter time! My friends make it all the time during their winter xmas parties, and this is what it looks like.

Use fresh Greek chamomile tea to help you sleep before bed

Fresh Greek chamomile can be great for falling asleep and relaxing! Greek herbs have been used for hundreds of years for medicinal and lifestyle purposes. There is so much you can use that comes from the earth.

How to make Greek red peppers (Florina peppers)

I prefer these grilled and drizzled with a little bit of dressing. I cook the peppers in the broiler until the skins blister. When the skins are blackened and cracked (about 2 to 3 minutes on each side), transfer to a big bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let them sit for about 10 minutes. The skins will detach completely, and the peppers will be very easy to peel. Mix oil and vinegar in a small glass jar. Add the pepper juices, garlic, mustard, chili pepper, and salt and mix well. While the peppers are still warm, arrange them in a deep dish and pour the dressing over them. Partially cover the dish and let it cool, then cover and refrigerate! They're ready to serve!

Another dish idea! Pan fried chicken breast with lemon pasta

This is a little twist on an Italian dish with Greek flavors. I love lemon, oregano and garlic, so I decided to make it into a healthy pasta with chicken breast that’s lightly fried in olive oil. What do you think? 😊

I had galaktoboureko and baklava at a fantastic Greek restaurant in Toronto!

Me and some buddies of mine went to Toronto's Greek town and had dinner and dessert at Christinas on the Danforth! The desserts were fantastic! We had my favorite, galaktoboureko and baklava :)
