Oh man do we ever love this.  I mean who doesn’t?  We eat it on Gyros, as a dip, by the spoonful and for…um…special purposes that we won’t go into as this is a family kind of website.  (Not really.  We swear.)

Just a word…

Look, we try to follow the recipes.  Really we do.  That being said, like many kids we had problems coloring in the lines and standing in line for recess without acting foolish and running around like a monkey.  So obviously we TRY to follow the recipes but sometimes you have to take liberties and use what you have rather than what it calls for or leave out something that you think tastes like a(*)@.  So you’re forewarned.

Please note that none of these recipes are our own.  We don’t have time to experiment so we take these fine recipes that others have lovingly created and mold them to our own tastes.  We do strive to give credit where credit is due.  So yeah, there’s that.
