Merry Christmas to all of my Kitoula.com visitors! I can’t believe another year has past and I still (occasionally) keep up this blogging thing I started in August of 2009.
Here’s the latest holiday family photo of me, Yianni and Rahbi.
And yes, of course I made koulouria with Max and Ben. Here’s some proof of that on my Instagram profile. I spend more time on Instagram these days. I think that’s true for a lot of us. Be sure to follow me there!
I will try to capture some pics of our annual New Year’s Eve lobster dinner. Stay tuned. I’m looking forward to sharing that with you.
One of my most popular blog posts on Kitoula’s Greek Food Journal is my quick and easy recipe for Watermelon and Feta Salad.
It’s a refreshing summer time classic and has just six simple ingredients:
- watermelon – cut in bite size pieces
- feta cheese – crumbled
- red onion – sliced thin
- mint leaves – small individual leaves or chiffonade
- lemon juice
- and honey.
Toss lightly in a bowl and serve.
For this watermelon and feta salad revisited blog post, I made a video!
And a big shout out to Lumen5 for the wonderful video editing application.
Street Eatzz Detroit Greektown Seasoning captures the wonderful flavor of our historic district on Monroe Avenue. Since 1920 Greektown has been filled with restaurants, coffee houses, boutiques, and bakeries.
Detroit Greektown Seasoning is available online.
Mix it with olive oil and vinegar for an authentic Greek salad dressing. It is delicious added to roasted Greek potatoes with lemon.
Use it with slow roasted leg of lamb, braised in garlic and lemon to create a luscious sauce. Have you tried my lamb burger with feta recipe? Mix it right into the ground lamb.
Add it to Greek style green beans with tomato and stew until the beans are meltingly tender.
You can find many dishes like the ones I just mentioned at the well-known restaurants along Monroe Avenue in Greektown including The Golden Fleece, New Parthenon, and Pegasus Taverna.
Oh! And don’t miss the parade down historic Monroe Avenue to celebrate Greek Independence Day held every year in the spring.
Weeknight dinners home-cooked by my hubby are delicious, and I’ve been posting photos of them to my Instagram account. “Chef” Yianni dinner posts are a success with more engagement than any of my others. I’ve embedded some of the most popular ones here for you to see, if you’re not on Instagram. After a hard day’s work, this is what I come home to. I am a lucky gal. #nomnomnom
