Grilled Greek Chicken

Rating: 5 stars 82
The secret to this simple grilled chicken is a very powerful marinade and 'roasting' it slowly over semi-indirect heat on the grill.

Stir-Fried Chicken With Pineapple and Peppers

Rating: 4.5 stars 112
Here's an easy way to get low-fat protein (in the chicken breast) and lots of vitamins (in the scallions, peppers and pineapple). Plus, the dab of fresh ginger soothes stomachs and fights inflammation and blood clots.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Rating: 4.5 stars 1588
This pasta dish incorporates some of the flavors of Greece. It makes a wonderfully complete and satisfying meal. For extra flavor, toss in a few kalamata olives. Use whatever pasta you have or prefer.

Fritos Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
I always had this Fritos pie growing up and loved it! Simple, fast, and cheap. Yields enough for leftovers for days.

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Rating: 4 stars 605
This easy, fast, and economical recipe sure to please. It is equally good over rice. Serve this family favorite with a green salad and a light dessert.

Greek Stuffed Tomatoes and Peppers (Yemista)

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
This is my favorite! The best time to make it is in August when the garden tomatoes are ready for harvest. Hothouse tomatoes are just not the same. My mom made this every year, and when she did, I thought I died and went to heaven. Enjoy!

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 123
These pancakes are light and don't leave you feeling too full. The blueberry sauce is easy, healthy, bright, and perfect on top of these pancakes. Top the pancakes with blueberry sauce or maple syrup.

Tuscan Bean 'Goppel'

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
Easy earthy side dish--or on its own with some good crusty bread and a glass of wine. Add grilled vegetables for vegetarian entree.

Simple Macaroni and Cheese

Rating: 4.5 stars 943
This easy mac and cheese recipe is ready in under 30 minutes.

Shredded Beef Tostadas

Tostadas are delicious stacks of toppings on crispy, flat, corn tortillas. Spread a layer of refried beans, then a layer of delicious shredded beef, and add other layers of lettuce, cheese, chopped tomatoes and your favorite salsa or other toppings, and enjoy! This recipe is customizable for your family's tastes!

Margaret's Keftedes (Greek Meatballs)

Rating: 4.5 stars 78
This is my yia yia's recipe--a family favorite straight from the village of Kyparissia. Serve as an appetizer or with tzatziki, Greek salata, and pita or pasta for a full meal. They taste best served at room temp and make for wonderful leftovers. If you don't care for lamb, try using all beef instead.

Rating: 4.5 stars 24
Even the pickiest of eaters will love this cheesy-beefy dish. Quick and nutritious; recipes just don't get much better than this! Perfect after a long day, it only takes 25 minutes to have dinner on the table.
