Greek Pizza Boat (Peinirli)

Greek Pizza Boat (Peinirli)

The Peinirli is a real favourite in our household. These are traditional Greek pizzas, shaped like little pizza boats. Slightly smaller than a regular Italian pizza, they’re perfect as a treat for one. They can carry all sorts of toppings, so are a favourite for all the various taste preferences in our family. It’s super-easy to rustle up a veggie option for me too, which makes life easier! Having to bake a meat-eaters meal and a veggie-friendly meal on top can sometimes just feel like a step too far! The peinirli origin story comes originally from Turkey. Turkish ‘pide’ are the same boat-shaped pizzas, and the Greek name ‘peinirli’ came from the Turkish word for cheese - ‘peinir’. Peinirli usually feature a basic cheese filling, to which you can add whatever you fancy - be that tomato, olive, onion, egg, spinach, ham or bacon…the options are about as endless as you can imagine toppings for an Italian pizza! When we return to Greece, Peinirli is one of our favourite bakery options (we mention it in our blog on the 7 must-eat Greek bakery bites). The kids (well, to be honest, my husband and I too, I suppose!) are often tempted to enjoy a Greek peinirli for our breakfast - it’s a popular choice!

Superbowl Sunday: Vegan Superbowl Eats & Treats – Sincerely Tori

Happy Sunday, and happy Superbowl Sunday! Today I thought I’d share my typical Sunday links post along with some of my favorite recipes for Superbowl Sunday in case you’re looking for some quick inspiration. Firstly, some links to my family’s favorite recipes for Superbowl Sunday. 1. Starting off with the savory options, these Quick & Easy Vegan “Egg” Rolls are always a crowd pleaser. 2. These Healthier option Tex-Mex potato skins are vegan and so easy, plus they’re a great way to use those extra potato skins with no waste. 3. Oh, and another recipe that’s perfect because it’s Superbowl Sunday! These Mini Cheese Pizza Bagel Swirl Bites are bomb! 4. Also, these Southwest Egg Rolls are an all time classic! 5. I can’t forget to mention this Mozzarella Stuffed Pesto Pizza Monkey Bread. I’d have to say they’re probably the boy’s absolute favorite thing that I make. 5. Lastly for the savory category, and going with the mozzarella again, are these Best Ever Mozzarella Sticks. Super simple but so good. 6. Now for the sweet, I’m actually making these brownies tonight because that’s how amazing they are. I’ve tried so many brownie recipes over the years but these are MY FAVORITE BROWINES SO FAR. Eh hem, just saying. 7. Need something quicker and easier? I call these Last Minute Crack Snacks for a reason. They only need 3 ingredients each and they’re super easy. Fool-proof easy. 8. The title might be a mouthful but these Double Peanut Butter Stuffed Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies are insane. 9. There really aren’t words for these Brown Butter Caramel Snickers Cookie Bars. 10. And finally these Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Explosion Cookie Bars can change lives. I haven’t decided yet but I might make them tonight also. I hope you all have a great evening!

Easy Buckwheat Crepes (Gluten Free)

Easy Buckwheat Crepes (Gluten Free)

This foolproof buckwheat crepes recipe results in perfectly tender crepes with crispy edges. Made with just buckwheat flour, the whole grain crepes are naturally gluten free and have a robust nutty flavor. I love to serve them with good quality sliced ham, cheese (go for gruyere, Comté or cheddar), apples and grainy mustard (see the Recipe Tips below!). They’re also awesome with fried eggs, or you can stuff them with your favorite veggies, such as Ratatouille and goat cheese, sautéed spinach and mushrooms, or creamy leeks and peas—the sky’s the limit! For a sweet version, try topping the crepes with sautéed pears or roasted berries, along with melted chocolate and whipped cream. Check out the French Crepes video above to see how to swirl the batter into the pan!

Tomato and cheese frittata – Marshmallows & Margaritas

I’m not a big breakfast person. A bowl of cereal, a smoothie or a piece of leftover pizza works for me. If I do make or order something bigger for myself, it’s usually something sweet and carbtastic — pancakes, waffles, scones or biscuits. But I live with a square-headed, rugby-playing Marine. And he likes eggs. [...]

Breadsticks with Sunflower Seeds

Breadsticks with Sunflower Seeds

This whole wheat breadsticks recipe is what we use to keep hunger at bay in our house! Instead of a bag of crisps, we’ll nibble on a wholegrain breadstick whilst watching TV, or whilst dinner cooks in the oven. They’re a healthy snack that satisfy my need to nibble, without ruining my appetite. I use them to help steer away from unhealthy treats whilst watching TV. They’re also great to put on the table at a dinner party instead of bread rolls, or to go with a meze / antipasti-style meal. Wrap parma ham around the end for a tasty starter, or serve a dip or two to accompany the breadsticks - they go perfectly with my Spicy Feta Dip. Called “kritsinia” in Greek, they are a popular snack at all times of the day. They’re even enjoyed with a coffee at breakfast time. Similar to Italian grissini breadsticks, the kritsinia will be crunchy and biscuity, with that breadstick ‘snap’. If you prefer a crunchy exterior but soft inside, make your breadsticks thicker.

Kale and Beef Borek - Dreamy Table

It takes time and effort to make this kale and beef borek, but you won’t regret it because this was delicious and satisfying. Su böreği is a traditional Turkish water pastry, it quite similar to lasagna but it has more pastry layer than filling. Traditionally Su böreği filled with white cheese and parsley, but this time I use kale and spiced minced beef as a filling.
