I remember I was looking at some web-pages through the Internet with some Greek-meat recipes and I found this one. It was summer time and the weather was extremely hot so the idea of turning the broil on of the oven didn't convince me very much. But I just jumped into the ingredients and made it. The results were lovely, so tender and tasty pork chops without any hard work. DELICIOUS!!!

Pork chops (as many as you want)
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
Fresh lemon juice


Season pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and a pat of butter over both sides. Broil 5-6 inches under heat for 15 minutes per each side. Check if cooked. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on chops and serve.


Among all the different types of rice I have tasted, for me this is the best one ever, the tastiest (my favourite). Its flavour is unique as well as the aroma of fresh dill that drives me crazy everytime I put the lid off the pot. Simple steps to prepare it, brilliant results when ready.

1        Tablespoon olive oil
1        Small onion (chopped)
2        Cloves garlic (chopped)
1        Bunch of spinach (roughly chopped)
2        Cups rice
1/12   Cups chicken broth (or water)
1/4     Cup parsley (chopped)
1/4     Cup dill (chopped)
1/2     Lemon (juice and zest)
1/4     Feta cheese (crumbled)
Salt and Pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and saute until tender. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute. Then add lemon zest and spinach and let stir until they wilt.
Add chicken stock, rice, parsley and dill and season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil with the lid on.
Reduce heat and simmer on low heat until the rice is cooked.
At the end, just before serving, hit a splash of lemon juice and garnish with feta.
