    Greek Easter Bread I deleted the fennel seed but added a tsp each of ground allspice and cardamom. Do not use egg dye kits. The color will run. Dye naturally or leave them out.

Vegetarian Greek Easter Soup (Magiritsa), with Spinach, Artichoke and Mushroom [Greek Vegetarian]

This is a traditional Easter bread served in Greece to break the Lenten fast. It is traditionally braided, with a red-dyed*, hard-boiled egg inserted at one end, and then baked. Beautiful to look at - delicious to eat. Like many yeast breads, these loaves require two risings, so take that into consideration when timing to make them. I like to eat it most at breakfast, with a piece of graviera (a Greek cheese resembling Swiss) and a huge glass of ice-cold milk. A bite of tsoureki; a nibble of cheese; a swallow of cold milk - heaven!!!

Homemade Greek Pita Bread -- I like how she "bakes" them in a skillet instead of the oven. I set off the smoke alarm when I made some in the oven and thought I'd never try them again, but I think I'll give it another go with this method.
