All of those above are great soups.

Avgolemono is a sauce that goes on your dolmades in Greece, but searching it in English should return results for the soup; however, if you don't find the soup then try kotosoupa avgolemono/kotosoupa which is how it's called in Greek.

Here is a great soup recipe for you. This is very easy to make and tastes awesome. I am into all natural diet and tried several recipes that are enriched with therapeutic herbs and spice. But this one is my favourite. I found this on iahas.com and fall in love witth it. I am sure you will like it.

Method
In a large pot, add carrots, onions, mix vegetables, broth, and dulse and bring it to boil over high flame.Bruise the lemongrass stalk and add it to the boiling pot. Cover the pot and simmer for 10 minutes over medium-low flame.Add Salt and Black Pepper and mix well.Serve it hot with rice or amaranth

Lentil is one of my favorites, I just made a nice big batch of it. I always use carrot, celery, onion, tomato sauce or paste, and greens. Yum! I always love Avgolemono, too... I am about to make a big pot of that now!
 

What are your favorite flavors of Greek ice cream?

Personally, I have to say baklava or kaïmaki. For those of you that haven’t tried kaïmaki, I highly recommend it. It’s a traditional Greek ice cream made from masticha. You can find it at most Greek grocery stores and ice cream stores. What is your favorite Greek ice cream flavor?

How long can you store phyllo in the freezer for?

I've been stocking up on phyllo from the Greek supermarket for quite some time… about six months in the freezer. How long will it stay fresh for? And when will I need to use it by? If anyone has advice I would really appreciate it.

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? 😎

What should I put in my Greek seasoning blend?

I always love to make homemade seasoning blends because it’s so much cheaper and I can control exactly how much sodium is in the seasoning blend. I’ve seen many Greek blends online, but I wonder if you have any advice for some homemade blends. I’m sure that many will have oregano and black pepper, but I’m looking for some more suggestions. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
