If you make anything from this cookbook, make these Greek Nachos. Right now. Stop everything you’re doing, go buy these ingredients, and make. these. nachos. As you can tell, I am very passionate about how good they are. Not good, outstanding. Epic. I could keep listing synonyms for 'tremendous' from the thesaurus, if you’d like? But I won’t, because I know you will agree with me. First, bake up perfectly seasoned, homemade pita chips, top them with creamy crumbled feta cheese, chopped veggies, salty olives and finally drizzle everything with a spicy yogurt sauce. Then, come back to this page and nod in agreement with the magic that is this recipe. Each ingredient merged together creates a unified, delightful appetizer that will make any happy hour even happier.
1. Make the Dressing: Whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth.
2. Make the Nachos: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut each pita into 8 wedges. Arrange the pita wedges in a single layer on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush the pita wedges with the oil and sprinkle with the paprika and salt. Bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.
3. Remove the pita wedges from the oven. Increase the heat to a high broil. Sprinkle the wedges with the feta, bell pepper, and red onion. Broil until the cheese starts to melt, about 3 minutes. Remove from the oven.
4. Sprinkle with the tomato, olives, and chives. Transfer the dressing to a squeeze bottle, or spoon into a plastic ziptop bag and snip 1 corner to make a small hole. Drizzle the nachos with your desired amount of dressing. Reserve any remaining dressing for another use.
To make this more kid-friendly, top the toasted pita with store-bought hummus, feta, and diced avocado.

1. Wakey wakey! – here are the breakfast recipes and probably the most mundane portion of the book. The Egg-in-hole avocado toast may be in my future.
2. Halftime – some excellent midday suggestions. There are many salad and bowl recipes but for me the Crab and Corn Chowder is the winner of this section.
3. It’s Five O’clock Somewhere – here you’ll find some refreshing ideas for cocktail time. It includes both liquid imbibes (including an old fashioned Brandy Alexander) and also sever snacks to go along.
4. Time for Dinner – Here is the family supper contributions. Lots of pasta dishes. Heavy on the meat offerings are in this section. Some yummy slow cooker and slightly international inputs. For me the Mexican Pork Soup has a big, yellow page marker to try when my boys and their families stop by.
5. Sidekicks – here are many suggestions that use veggies as the star. The Rainbow Potato Salad with Crispy Shallots is another “marked page” for me.
6. Sweet Treats – this ends the book as sweets often end the meal. The best contributions here are several Girl Scout cookie hacks. The Samoas and Tagalongs may be worth the price of the book by themselves.
This is an excellent cookbook that has recipes that are neither difficult nor do they use hard to find ingredients. Delicious - yes. Nutritious - some are, some aren't (and there are no nutritional values). There are lots of pictures which, for me, is a “must” if I’m purchasing a cookbook. There are also many personal anecdotes that are both interesting and charming.
