The recipes here are favorites for at least one of the kids or myself, and tailored to three people with some leftovers. In most cases I have pulled the base if not the entire recipe from one or more sources, and have noted links where applicable. I have no formal training--just YouTube videos, Internet blogs and experimentation--so these are more for the kids in case they want to know how I made something that they remember liking. Of course, if you want a sample of what it is like to eat at the Stein household feel free to try some of the things found here.
To make Gyros I pair thin slices of this meat with pita bread, lettuce, tomato, onions, feta cheese, and Tzatziki sauce, (I am still working on the recipe for the latter). Although it tastes great on its own which is good since I usually run out of pita bread before running out of meat. Note that I use a food processor in this recipe.
Except in certain cases (like breads or making a roux), measurements are estimates. Spices I usually eye then adjust with tasting. Pepper should be freshly ground to get the best flavor.
The following abbreviations are used in the recipes:
