One of the most requested dinners at our house is Greek Dinner. Moose Moussaka is always at the top of the list for this dinner.
One of my wife’s friends says this about her Moussaka Recipe, "My mom is from Greece and you make better Moussaka than she does. But if you tell her that I’ll deny I said it."
