Homemade Gyros

The Greekfest in town is my favorite festival of all times!!! We even have a new Greek restaurant in town Navarino Bay (can’t wait to try and review here on the blog)

Anyway so I was looking for a way to make a good gyro at home and found a recipe and I tweaked it so find it below, try it and let me know how it turned out!!!


Ingredient list

  • steak-umms steak cooking for 2 I cooked 2 and a half servings, you can adjust according to if you want more or less meat in your gyro
  • feta cheese(I used a block that I crumbled myself)
  • romaine lettuce(or any greens that you prefer)
  • green peppers
  • red onion
  • cucumbers
  • Tzakiki sauce(see recipe below)
  • any other toppings you would like
  • pita(you can use your favorite pita, I used naans)


  1. prep veggies for gyros
    1. slice peppers and onions the way you prefer(dice or slice)
    2. cut up romaine lettuce
    3. dice cucumber
  2. warm medium-sized skillet
  3. place peppers and onions in warm skillet and saute until cooked to your preference(I cooked until tender and a little brown on the edges)
  4. remove peppers and onions from skillet
  5. add steak-umms to the skillet and cook through (until brown–no pink left) crumble it as it cooks
  6. once the steak is cooked through add the peppers and onions back to skillet and heat through
  7. warm pitas in oven
  8. take the warm pita and spread tzatziki sauce on, add the meat, onion, pepper mixture
  9. top gyro with lettuce, cucumber, feta cheese and any other toppings you wish
  10. wrap gyro in foil and enjoy

Tzatziki sauce


  • 1 cup of plain greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed (more if you like the taste)
  • 1 garlic glove
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. mix all ingredients in an airtight-PAXP-deijE (2) container and place in refrigerator for a few hours or until your gyros are ready
  2. keep the leftover tzatziki sauce in the refrigerator


Change it up and make with chicken, pork, fish, or the traditional lamb! Make this recipe comment below and tell me how it turned out!

Have a Blessed Day!

Opening the box–JoAnn Fabrics

A couple of weeks ago JoAnn’s had an amazing sale a couple of weeks ago on the prima traveler journal, which I had to have when I first saw it online(cue the heart eyes!!!)

I loved the look of it, not to mention the included zippered pouch(wow how helpful that would be)

While I was shopping I found a lot of Prima dolls that I didn’t have yet so I put them in my cart too(lots of gorgeous projects coming soon!)
