Have I ever confessed my LOVE of cheese and crackers to you? Give me a hunk of cheese (cheddar, jack, muenster, whatever,) a knife, some crackers and I’m in heaven. I like it so much I stopped buying blocks of cheese. I’m serious! I can’t be trusted with them in the house. I can easily put down the whole thing! I have no cheese shut off valve. I really don’t.
OK, don’t stone me for this but I HATE tuna salad. I never order it. Ever. I think it’s gross and totally disgusting. Not because of the tuna but because of the mayonnaise. I’ve never been a fan of mayo, even when I was a kid. Once I saw someone make it in a demonstration (blending oil and egg together) and it sealed the deal for me forever. No mayo thank you very much, I’ll stick with mustard.
But I really do like tuna. As I was rummaging through my fridge/pantry wondering what I was going to make last night, I came across a can. I also just happened to get my new shipment of feta from Athenos. A light bulb went off! Read the rest of this post

I tried so hard to record myself cooking this last night but Ryan was in rare form and it just didn’t work out. :( Regardless, I wanted to share this quick idea I had for a fun salmon dinner.
The husband wasn’t too impressed with the rice but he liked the salmon. The little guy liked the rice, not the salmon. I liked both! ;)
Here’s what I did… Read the rest of this post
I had no intentions of cooking last night. The husband was pissing me off. I had a long day at work. I have a messy house. A to-do list about as long as the yellow pages and I knew I was going to have to go to bed early just to wake up and start the cycle all over again.
Sometimes I just get into these blah funky moods. Read the rest of this post
Believe me, I know, the title of this idea scares me too! First of all there’s a vegetable in there not many of us are familiar with (kohlrabi) and then I’m mixing one of natures most amazing fruit (at least I think so), the watermelon with cheese. Not any cheese but FETA. Yeah.. my gut response is yuck as well… but hear me out!
Oh My! I can not believe how many amazing ideas I’m getting from the The First Fabulous Friday Feta Giveaway! Just reading through them is SO inspiring!
I combined a few of the comments to make a light tasty salad this morning. Coming off a weekend of insane fast food indulging this was the perfect light, tasty meal I needed. I love how 6 ingredients can pack so much satisfying flavor. And I absolutely adore the combo of balsamic, feta and basil! Read the rest of this post
I told you guys I rarely read recipes, right? It’s funny but when I read them and actually find out what’s in the dish I’m not as inspired to make it. Oh I’m an odd duck, I know. lol Anyway I saw this recipe or should I say picture of Kalyn’s Carrot, Parsley, and Garbanzo (Chickpea) Salad with Feta and Cumin and I immediately got an idea for my own Chickpea and feta idea.
I try a lot of different things in the kitchen, it’s just in my nature to make stuff up. Normally I know if an idea will work or not but sometimes I just take a shot. This was one of those times. I didn’t even bother to grab my camera during prep because I really didn’t think this this would work out. Boy was I wrong!
I made this up while home for the 4th of July Holiday weekend. I just wanted something quick and fresh using what I had on hand.
I’m not quite sure why I only made a half it was so good I ended up immediately making another. I didn’t think I’d like it so much but the balsamic soaked into the bread nicely and the crisp cucumbers and fresh basil were amazing with the feta. Read the rest of this post
I had two cute eggplants from the farm pickup last week and I thought to myself… “self.. I bet eggplant and feta would go REALLY good together. Especially with some tomato. Oh! and I have Basil!”
So I googled “Feta Eggplant” and look at all the pretty pictures. Noticing that some recipes had chickpeas, I devised my plan! :)
