A yummy butter flaky delicious appetizer that is sure to impress your guests or family.” – Noelle

Meat and Rice Stuffed Grape Leaves

Greek Spinach Pie

“No, this is not authentic! This Greek Spinach Pie recipe is a homemade version of the traditional Greek spanakopita with a couple of twists. This version utilizes three cheeses: feta, ricotta, and jack. There is dill. There is sauteed onion. This pie makes a great dinner item (my family loves it so I’m going to call it family-friendly!) It’s especially awesome served with Greek Orzo and Chicken Soup!” – Lori
