I’m excited to be part of the #FallforGreek book tour this month.  I had the opportunity to review the new cookbook by Debbie Matenopoulos, It’s All Greek To Me and, boy, am I glad I did.  Not only does Debbie share amazing Greek recipes, she also shares insight into Greece and Greek culture, as well as tips on how to prepare her Greek dishes.

After trying the Feta Cheese Pie recipe (Spanakopita)  I have a new favorite recipe (warning to my family, we’ll be eating Spanakopita a lot now!).  Fortunately, my family enjoyed the Spanakopita, too.  Let me introduce you to my new favorite recipe.

I’d always been intimidated by phyllo dough and have avoided recipes that use it.  I do lo-ove spinach and feta cheese so I thought I’d face my phyllo dough fear face on.

The recipe calls for phyllo dough sheets, but my grocery store only had the phyllo dough cups.  I’m really happy with the way the recipe turned out using the cups (the filling to crust ratio is perfect), so I’ll be using the phyllo dough cups all the time with this recipe. I whipped these Spanakopita up on a busy school day evening, so they’re really easy to make.  I love how fresh everything tasted. Before I received the cookbook I’d thought I’d give it away as a gift to a friend that collects cookbooks, but now I’m definitely keeping it for myself.  Thanks to Debbie Matenopoulos and BenBella Books, Inc.

  1. Hi Susan – I love Greek food and am always a little nervous to try and cook it. These look so easy to make and delish! Hugs, Holly

  2. I love Greek food! I think I’d have to keep it to myself because 1) I don’t know how to cook anything Greek and 2) I don’t actually own any cookbooks yet!

  3. I would keep this cookbook for myself to add to my collection. It would be my first all Greek Cookbook. Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. I would give this book to my husband since he loves to cook. It would be win/win because he would get a gift and I would get to try what he cooks from the book! šŸ™‚

  5. Can I answer “both”? Haha … I’d give it to my roommate since she’s the better cook and loves cookbooks, but it’d be in the same place and I’d probably use it too.
