    Lamb Moussaka

    This hearty comfort dish is reminiscent of lasagna, layering eggplant, ground lamb or beef, and creamy white sauce–all baked to perfection.

    Greek-Style Yogurt with Honey and Walnuts

    Greek yogurt is a bit thicker and tangier than most Americans are used to. Jazz it up with honey and walnuts, or use whatever fruit is in season. Either way, it's a great healthy dessert alternative.
