Magiritsa soup and Greek Easter go hand-in-hand. After fasting for 40 days, Greek Orthodox Christians break their fast after midnight church services with a heaping bowl of this lamb soup laced with an egg-lemon sauce.
Koulourakia are beautiful traditional Greek butter cookies served at nearly every holiday and celebration. They are perfect dunked in coffee for breakfast or a snack as well.
In my early days of cooking and baking, my mom would haul me down to the Dayton, Ohio Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church every summer to help the community prepare for our annual Greek festival. One of my favorite weeks was when we would bake Tsoureki, a sweet Greek bread traditionally served at Easter.
