This is an absolutely genius combination. It's not very often that mozzarella gets cooked in a credible way but this is one time it does. I love the whole idea of putting the bread, mozzarella and smoky bacon together because when cooked they complement each other so well ? the bread goes really crisp and soaks up all the lovely juices, the milky mozzarella starts to melt and go really gooey, and served with a fresh herb salad it's lovely. Great for a starter or a snack, and I've even made little mini ones as canapés (dare I say that word?!).
Here's something to do with roasted chicken from the deli—a Middle Eastern sandwich chock-full of spicy lentils, bulgur, lettuce, tomato and tahini sauce.

These little bites of pastry filled with dulce de leche are a special treat. I like to make pastelitos de dulce de leche when I have leftover scraps of pastry dough - after rolling out a pie crust, for example. But they are so delicious you will want to make a whole batch of pastry dough dedicated only to these little cookies. It's difficult to keep the dulce de leche from leaking out during baking, but don't worry about it. When the leaking dulce de leche pools around the pastries in the oven, it gives them a delicious candy crunch on the bottom.

The modern Pavlova is a light, crisp meringue cake with a marshmallow -like center topped with whipped cream and fruits. It’s much larger than its European ancestors tended to be, which allows for extended appreciation of the soft center. Traditionally the cake is topped with whatever regional fruits are in season, from strawberries and kiwifruits to bananas, cherries, grapes, passion fruit, and peaches. Modern-style Pavlovas may also be topped with caramel, nuts, chocolate, nougat, and candies. Recipe from A World of Cake by Krystina Castella/Storey Publishing, 2011.

“Patatas con Ajo y Perejil” is a simple side dish. Although it is a great vegetarian dish, it could also be served as a “tapa” along with a bit of “alioli” (a sort of garlic mayonnaise). If you like your dishes extra garlicky, add another clove! These “chips” are also a great addition to a Lenten fish meal.
The avocado will dry slightly in the pan, intensifying its flavor. Choose a ripe but firm avocado so it will hold its shape as it cooks. For a piquant variation, try adding a blend of 1 1/2 teaspoons of Hungarian hot paprika and 1 1/2 teaspoons of smoked Spanish paprika to the spice rub for a more intense flavor.

Though this tart is traditionally filled with fresh, unsalted myzithra cheese (which can be difficult to find in the United States) or whole-milk ricotta, we discovered that manouri, another Greek cheese that’s fresh and lightly salted, complements the sweet honey and lemony crust. What to buy: Manouri can be found at some supermarkets (like Whole Foods), most cheese shops, and Greek grocers. This recipe was featured as part of our Greek Easter Celebration menu.
