Souvlaki chicken is a flavorful Mediterranean dish. The chicken is marinated overnight in a mixture of Greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, and Greek herbs. During summer months I love to add fresh lemon thyme from my garden to the marinade and as a garnish on the cooked kabobs.
If you don’t want to prepare kabobs, you can also marinate the chicken thighs or breasts whole, and grill or roast the whole pieces of chicken until cooked through.
We like to serve these kabobs with roasted zucchini or asparagus, and with hummus and tzatziki dips. You can also serve these kabobs with warm pita bread, if desired.

I love to cook fish in a cast iron skillet. The filets get a nice sear, cook very quickly, and don’t stick. Deglazing the pan with an easy lemon butter sauce makes a quick and delicious meal.
I used fresh lemon thyme from my garden instead of parsley when I made it this time. If I didn’t have fresh thyme, I would have just used the parsley.
A delicious breakfast casserole for those who like a little spice in their life.
Want to try something a little different for St. Patrick’s Day this year? This low carb casserole has all of the flavors of a classic Reuben sandwich, in a hot delicious main dish casserole.
Layers of cooked cabbage, corned beef, sliced dill pickles, and sauerkraut are covered in melted Swiss cheese, then topped with a creamy Russian dressing. (The pickles are optional, but I love the extra tangy-ness and crunch.)
Bake in a large casserole dish or 9×13” pan for a delicious low carb meal.
Serve hot and drizzle with homemade creamy Russian dressing to serve. I like to kick up the spiciness of the dressing by adding extra Sriracha.
I cook my corned beef in an Instant Pot (70 minutes on high pressure), until tender enough to shred. You can also use leftover cooked corned beef and reduced amounts of the other ingredients to make a smaller sized casserole.
Happy π Day! Here is a sugar free version of a French silk chocolate pie. The addition of fresh berries make it less rich, but you will still want to eat it in small serving sizes.
