You’re a Greek God!

Posted by on Feb 27, 2012 in Appetizers & Salads, Recipes | 0 comments

Greek salads are very delicious and simple to make. I learned my version from my dear friend Stayce, (who happens to be Greek). She taught me that the secret in this wonderfully fresh salad was all in the ‘sweating’.

No, I’m not suggesting that you’ll be sweating when making this salad, what I am saying is that the magic to this salad is to let most of the ingredients blend together with some salt and a few other spices, which allows them to ‘sweat’. It’s a concept I use for a lot of my salads, and they never seems to disappoint!   After making this salad for your date, you will be in praised beyond belief.

If this van’s a rockin’…

..don’t come a knockin’!

(no, this isn’t a sure fire way on how to charm your date to get in on in a car…but who knows, may just lead there…)

“Chicken in the van” is what my nieces and nephews call this wonderful meal. When they were just toddlers, they had a rough time pronouncing the real name; Chicken Divan. Anyhow the name totally stuck. Now we are all HUGE fans of my sister’s Chicken in the Van!

This is a recipe that my sister Jan has been making for years…I assume it’s not an original recipe, since there are many versions of this meal around, but this one is wonderful and easy, and sure to please any palate!

To many, Valentine’s day is believed to be one of those man made holidays created by the card and flower industries to make money, but not to me.

In my opinion, the meaning of this holiday is very basic; this is a day to do a little something extra to make the person in your life feel special.

If you still don’t have your ‘lover’s holiday’ plans all lined up, what are you waiting for…Get on it! Mood music, chocolate and a card are a good start…but if you want to go the extra mile on this special day, I have a wonderful recipe for you to try.

You know the old saying that the way into a man’s heart is through his stomach, right? Well how about this saying; ‘the way into a girls pants is through her heart’.. OK, so I just made that up, but it’s true.

Where men are mostly visual creature, woman are more driven by how they feel. And all woman yearn to feel special and cherished. I am a firm believer that it’s really the small things that matter to women, and the thought of a man preparing a meal is a HUGE win in our eyes and hearts.
