      The most amazing appetizer I have ever tasted. Spinach dip bites.... These spanakopita bites are a twist on the classic spanakopita recipe I tend to make. A month or so ago, I made spanakopita in the shape of little cigars, making it a portable dish. This time, I decided to use my mini muffin pan to create phyllo cups, which I filled with a standard spanakopita filling. I encourage you to play with phyllo dough and create various shapes in which you could fill and bake. Whether it be cups, such as these that I made, rolls, triangles or whatever tickles your fancy, have fun! Besides, as delicate as phyllo dough is, I find it pretty forgiving too. Once you douse it with butter and bake, there won't be any complaints... I promise. Spanakopita Bites 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 small onion, chopped, 3 green onions, chopped, 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach. thawed, and squeezed dry, 4 to 6 ounces domestic feta cheese-crumbled, 1 cup cottage cheese, 1 egg, Salt and pepper to taste, 1 pound phyllo, thawed, 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick), melted, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, Preheat oven to 375 degrees Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add white and green chopped onions; cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, mix spinach, feta, cottage cheese and egg in medium bowl. Add cooked onions and season with salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Combine the remaining butter and oil and set aside until ready to use. Remove the phyllo dough from the package and stack up. Carefully cut the phyllo dough into 2 inch by 2 inch squares; set aside. Prepare your mini muffin pan by brushing butter in each well. Place 1-2 squares of phyllo dough into each well, pushing down to create a cup or crust. Brush the top phyllo filled wells with more melted butter and repeat by placing 1-2 squares of phyllo dough into each well and pushing down to create a cup or crust again. Repeat with another layer of 1-2 squares of phyllo dough and brush with more melted butter. Place a heaping teaspoon into each well, filling the phyllo cup. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

    Marinated Greek Chicken Skewers I made this for our 4th of July party and everybody LOVED them. I did add an all purpose Greek seasoning (Cavender's) and marinated them over night. (use this in place of some of the salt) I served them with Tzatziki sauce. These were incredibly easy and very good.

    This chili is hearty and very filling. It is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free, but meat lovers will enjoy it as well. The chili has black beans, red kidney beans, tomatoes, and lots of vegetables-onion, carrots, celery, green pepper, red pepper, and zucchini. We threw in a jalapeño, chili powder, and cumin for added spice.
