Something we enjoy doing at the Kitchen House is traveling the world – culinary style! Mediterranean meals usually include ingredients like: fresh lemon, herbs, olive oil, cheese and yogurt. This week we prepared a Greek inspired meal: grilled chicken, lemon pilaf, salad and tzatziki sauce. There are several recipes for you to create in this blog. Try them all together, or experiment and split them up… however you like!
