Spanakopita Triangles

Cooking with pastry is great if you want a quick meal/snack idea. You can use it with savoury things but also sweet ones too. I’ve used puff pastry several times for different occasions – some examples are Cheese & Onion Pinwheels and Pigs in a Blanket. Another pastry that is also popular but I haven’t…

Empanada Eggrolls

Get ready for this recipe. This is sort of my own fusion creation and I’m really proud of how they turned out. Let me explain what I’ve made here. So my dad’s family is from Argentina, I mentioned this in my Alfajores post, and empanadas are another common food there. Empanadas are traditionally a turnover…

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I love fall because of all the squash! I have made so many pumpkin/squash recipes over the years! If you’re looking for some recipe ideas, you can click the links here –> PUMPKIN recipes or SQUASH recipes. The awesome thing about squash is that they come with a bonus inside – the seeds! When roasted,…

Cheese & Caramelized Onion Pinwheels

I love puff pastry because you can make so many different things and the result will always be delicious and super flaky. I had a sheet leftover in my freezer from when I made pigs in a blanket so I decided to use it up. This time I went in a cheesy direction. I made…

Pigs in a Blanket

Sometimes, easy recipes are the best ones to make. Here is an incredibly simple snack/side dish and I can hardly believe I have never made them before. So like the title says, and as you can see in the picture, I made pigs in a blanket! Pigs = hot dogs, blanket = pastry dough. The…

Cheese Nachos

Hummus Two Ways: Classic & Beet

A few months ago, I made a really delicious white bean hummus (link here). It was a great dip and good twist on basic chickpea hummus. However, today, I am going back to the classics – sort of. I have created a recipe for traditional hummus which is great as it is, or you can…

Cheese Platter

I know a cheese platter is more of a dish to serve to guests/for a party, but since the pandemic, it’s just been my parents and I. We decided to make one anyways as a nice snack on the weekend. A cheese platter can be as simple or elaborate as you wish, but you need…

Easy Guacamole

Happy almost Cinco de Mayo! I love Mexican food so I could celebrate Cinco every day of the year. Whether it’s burritos, tacos, bean salad, fajitas or enchiladas, I will happily eat them all. Here is a tasty and easy guacamole recipe that you can make to celebrate tomorrow. Not only does it have few…

White Bean Hummus

I saw at my store that the dip section was a little lacking, so this was the perfect opportunity to make my own hummus. I know I’ve said this before but homemade hummus is so much better than store-bought anyways. I actually used all pantry items to make this dip – canned beans, dried spices,…
