Hello everyone - this is one of the easiest, yet, tastiest recipes I have made.

Try them and you'll see.

Hot Greek lamb sandwiches


Ground lamb

Cumin (1 Tblsp or so)


All spice



Form patties and bar be cue until cooked through – 7 min or so per side.


Pizza dough, rolled thin into a square

Put it on the grill on top of an oiled piece of tin foil

When it is done, put some mozzarella on top to melt,

And sprinkle with rosemary and oregano

When cheese is melted cut into squares so you have two per sandwich (top and bottom)

Sauce (whir in food processor)


Roasted red pepper (for a different flavour you may use sun dried tomatoes)

Feta cheese


Red onions, soaked in water for a half hour

Feta cheese

Put patty on top of “Bun” bottom, then, spread with sauce, and top with red onions and some crumbled feta cheese. Top with bun top, and serve. REALLY GOOD!

Hi everyone! it has been a while - busy summer! I hope you are all having a blast this summer and that your days are filled with great friends, family and food! I have a recipe to share with you which is so easy, but, sooo good - and it is all based around the zucchini! My son does not eat them, unless I cook them this way - so try it, even if you think you don't like zucchini!

You will need:

1 large zucchini (go to your local market and buy one or two - they are in season, and taste fantastic!)
2 cups or so of Italian style bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper
vegetable oil

In a bowl, beat the eggs and set aside. In a separate flat bottomed container, sprinkle the bread crumbs. On the stove, over med heat, place a non stick pan and fill the bottom with oil.

Slice the zucchini to about 1/4 " thickness. Dip the zucchini in the egg, then the bread crumbs, and then, dip into the oil and shallow fry for a few minutes on each side (they should be a golden brown in colour) sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve!

They also make a great appetizer - cut them a little thinker, and cook a little longer and top with your favourite toppping such as ricotta mixed with a little parmesan, salt and pepper, or a slice of tomato topped with a little mozzarella and basil.

You may also use them to decorate your favourite salad by putting them on top of a salad plate - they also add a little crunch!

Try them - you will love them!
