This is perfect! I was looking for a good recipe to follow for this time of year, and I think I will try this one!
 

What if I don't have Greek yogurt?

I don't always have Greek yogurt on hand. I tend not to keep it in the fridge and only buy it when I need it. I do, however, tend to have plain, regular yogurt.

Can I substitute that in recipes if I make something Greek at the last minute?

I have heard of some people straining it through cheesecloth. If you guys recommend I do that, How long does it need to strain?

I want to make Domatakeftedes at home...

I saw a recipe in a Greek cookbook somewhere called "Domatakeftedes" or tomato croquettes. It looked delicious, but I can't find it!

Does anyone know of any good recipes? I love tomatoes, and I had this dish once somewhere and thought it was amazing. From what I understand it's a specialty on Santorini? Thanks for your help!

Horiatiki Sałata Recipe from Cooking Greek Cookbook

Horiatiki Sałata, or Greek village salad, is one of my favorite Greek dishes to cook at home, especially when the tomatoes are vine ripened or even better, pick straight from my garden. This salad is a great side dish as part of a larger meal, or it can actually stand on its own. I love to eat this with a few pieces of bread. I like to make it about an hour before I want to eat it and I leave it (covered) on the countertop for about thirty minutes before I eat it so all the flavors can meld together. I make the classic recipe and use fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, oregano, my favorite imported feta cheese, Kalamata olives, and of course, only the best Greek olive oil.

Greek Thanksgiving "Stuffing" Recipe?

Thanksgiving is coming up, and I am trying to track down a recipe. I had a Greek friend verbally describe what this is, but I need a recipe to follow if someone can help me out. His family recipe involves:
  • Onion
  • Ground beef
  • Rice
  • Water or broth
  • All spice, cinnamon, oregano (I thought he said oregano but I am not 100%)
  • Roasted chestnuts
I think maybe I can guess that the onion is sautéed, the ground beef needs to be browned, the rice is stirred in and water or broth is added, and the chestnuts are roasted separately and stirred in at the end?

Thanks for your help! I am learning that Greek cooks have most of their recipes in their brains.

Anyone have a good koulouri recipe?

Is making koulouri a simple matter of making a regular bread dough and then forming it into rings? I loooove koulouri when I go to Greece, and I am unfortunately not always able to get to Greece. I need a way to make this at home.

I love the type with the sesame seeds, and I also love the sweet ones. How do you make those? Can I make like a tsoureki but form it into instead?
