Given that I am willing to try anything when it comes to food, (well almost anything – no bugs please and thank you) I decided to get away from my usual bacon filled dishes and try to make something I have yet to master. One Saturday night I decided that it was time to visit Greece via my friend’s kitchen. What to make, what to make? Stuffed grapes leaves? Nah, where would I get the leaves? Lamb rack? Nah, too much carving for my taste. Ouzo? Getting closer but I can just buy that later. Moussaka you say? Yes, right up my alley! I love comfort food and this is Greek comfort food at its finest ladies and gentlemen. I dare you to go into any Greek restaurant and not find it on the menu. If that should ever happen – leave a.s.a.p. as they are not worthy! It’s like lasagna but not really.

Open your eyes, run to your “Greek for the night” kitchen and start cooking!

It wasn’t so long ago that marketers were screaming from the rooftops about their new favorite duo: Email marketing and social media.
They’re like peanut butter and jelly!
Peas and carrots!
Batman and Robin!
Two great tools that work even better when used together!
Fast forward a couple years, and the fact that email and social media go together is old news. (Yawn.) Now there’s a new favorite marketing team: Outbound and inbound.
Most of the marketing you do now is probably of the outbound variety. Email, social media, online surveys … those are all outbound communications. “Push” messaging, if you will.
On the other hand, inbound marketing is a catch-all term for the activities that increase the amount of website traffic that comes your way organically. I’m talking about content marketing (blogging, etc.) and search-engine optimization (SEO), among other things — tactics that make it easier for potential customers to find you on their own.
