Ladolemono is a standard Greek marinade that is made of olive oil, lemon, and usually garlic, any herbs that you like (usually oregano) and then salt and pepper. I use it mainly for all meats and potatoes, boiled vegetables like cauliflower, beets, and broccoli. Its very light and refreshing and one of the healthiest dressings and marinades that you can use. When you potatoes with it in the oven, you can always add a little water to better cook the potatoes until they are fork tender. Let me know some other great uses!

I use just a little bit of mustard for the kick and a spoonful of honey and rosemary (mainly for the meat and potatoes).

I love adding a bit of honey and some coarse sea salt so that there is a balance of flavour

I use this to make souvlaki. I make a big batch of ladolemono and then marinate the meat in it overnight. Makes it succulent and helps prevent the grilling process from drying out the meat.
 

How to make juicy Greek style lamb burgers!

This is one of my own creations that is so tasty! I'm not really the type to measure, so please take my advice with a grain of salt and use whatever measurements you feel comfortable with or that you find online. I like to make my lamb burgers with lean ground lamb meat. I find that lamb meat is pretty fatty and stays moist and doesn't need to have a high percentage of fat. I season the meat with salt, pepper, oregano, and rosemary. As an extra plus, I like to stuff the burgers with feta cheese or halloumi. The key here is not to overcook them because the meat will dry up and so will the cheese. For toppings, you can pretty much add whatever you like, I like sautéed onions and red peppers.

How to make thick and creamy Santorini fava!

Santorini fava is a classic staple in Santorini cuisine, and it has spread all over Greece. The dish is very simple to make, and taste even better when you use high-quality ingredients like Greek olive oil. It is a very budget friendly meal, and can stay in the fridge for a few days without going bad. It can get a bit dry so I suggest squeezing some lemon and adding a bit more olive oil if you're going to eat it over the course of a few days. Here is how you make it:

Soft and tender Greek lamb shank

I love making this tender lamb shank anytime I have a special occasion. While you can cook lamb shake in many different ways, I like to go sit in the oven just until the outside gets a nice darker color and some of the fat renders off. Of course, you should always serve this with either rice or potatos.

How to choose a fresh fish at the fish market!

Choosing a fresh fish is going to be key for your dish and for your health. I don't usually go to the fish market when I'm home, but when I'm on vacation, and especially in Greece, I love going to the market to get fresh fish from local fishermen. If you don't know how to pick fresh fish, here is a great tutorial on how!

Its grilling season!

I’m so excited! This is the first day that I’ve been able to get outside and start grilling. I made some chicken, pork chops, and beef tenderloin seasoned with lemon and oregano. Is anyone else grilling this summer? 😎
