Hey YOU! Happiest of Sundays, everyone! To those celebrating Easter, just like yours truly, HAPPY EASTER! CHRIST IS RISEN!

Today I am heading over to my Mom’s to feast on a leg of lamb, yogurt risotto and lamb, soup of lamb, and a Pavlova. All in that order.

I’m in charge of the salad so I’m bringing a big bowl of this Radish and Cucumber Salad with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce.

The other day I found English Cucumbers on sale for 70 cents each!! I was like, what the whaaaat? Gimme the whole box! Them things are always around buck-20.

So, I’m bringing that salad because I now have over 20 English Cucumbers to deal with. 😀

I get excited about a lot of things in life, it’s in my nature to just be jumpy, but finally falling in love with whole grain spaghetti is beyond exciting to me. I like all the other whole grain/whole wheat pastas, but I just couldn’t do spaghetti. Until. Until I found the right fixins to go with them.

HEY! Broccoli is like the new cupcake. Besides, they’re good for our heart. Then, our beloved sun-dried tomatoes are rich in nutrients and they will add the sweetness and needed acidity to the sauce. Trust me, it works. AND it’s delicious!

Take it, love it, run with it!

  1. Ristos Voskrese! I love pasta and this is a great way to dress it up differently,it can get boring but I don’t want to give it up! And I agree, I think broccoli is the new cupcake also 🙂

    He used a cheese filling and a jam filling. I know; they are very vague. They make it difficult to pass on a recipe. They complain about the young not passing down traditions then won’t share.

  3. Are you Greek?? sounds like our typical Easter dinner and so good..
    I have to eat the broccoli raw, hubby can’t stand it in anything!.
    Don’t know what I would do without you – you are one highlite of the day..

        1. They never share! hahaha 😉 My Grandma would share, but she was very vague. She would say, “about this much flour, a sprinkle of salt, enough water to combine it, eggs, etc…” – she never, ever told me how much of everything! 😀
          I have a recipe on the blog for one type of gibanitsa, but I’m not sure if that’s the one your Grandfather made. I think the Serbian gibanitsa is a bit different. Was it layered crepes with a garlic filling in between each layer?
          Here’s the one that I have on the blog: https://diethood44.wpengine.com/feta-cheese-egg-casserole/
