Last night I had my monthly supper club with some girlfriends, March was Greek-themed and I tried my hand at stuffed grape leaves (dolmades). Using Tyler Florence's recipe as a starting point, they were pretty easy (rolling was time-consuming) and yummy.
Some notes about the original recipe, I used water instead of stock. I used less lemon juice (only had one lemon on hand) and I used 1 cup of water when making the rice (didn't double-check the instructions). So my point is- these are hard to mess up & cooking does not have to be perfect. I found my grape leaves at Shahrzah International Market (we were headed back from OTP when we passed this little market on Roswell).
Check out my cocktail recipe from last month's supper club on Eat.Drink.Shop.Love and I also made this delicious tart that is so good I could eat one myself. For the tart, I left off the bacon and used maple syrup instead of honey.
All of the recipes I have shared with you today are easy, inexpensive, & great for entertaining.
