In just over a week, I will be in Greece. That is why we are sharing a recipe from the land of extensive history, beautiful landscapes and dishes that make the cuisine a favorite amongst many. Amir will not be there during the trip, so I’ve taken it upon myself to lead the course for us both. Perhaps I’ll eat for two. And not because I am pregnant! Greek food has long been high on my list as a ‘favorite’, even though the Libra in me has a hard time signifying anything as a favorite. The Greek won me over with their passion for life and food with everyone around them, related or not. The idea that anyone in the house is family is one that rings true for me and those around me.

Our Guest Test Kitchen is back in action! Here comes a good friend Michelle to tell you a bit about one of her easy to make recipes. Michelle is yet another UNC grad (Can you see a strange pattern here?), and she has always been Ms. Healthy and Fit. It’s a great thing of course! She knows her way around the kitchen and how to prepare a fast, nutritious meal. We don’t know how she has the time though. Not only can she whip up food on the fly, but she is also a producer for her own company, Continuous Take Productions. We are impressed. Very impressed. Take a seat and see what Michelle’s got cookin’.
