Feta Cheese and Sweet Potato Filo Pastry Samosa Appetizers

Feta Cheese and Sweet Potato Filo Pastry Samosa Appetizers

Fall is the season for pies, so I thought I'd share these tasty, savory feta cheese and sweet potato samosas or hand-pies, which are the perfect appetizer and ideal for entertaining! My husband cooks most of the time at our house, so this recipe is originally his, but using spinach instead of sweet potato, 'cause he's not a fan 😲 But because he had forgotten to buy the spinach, I snatched his ingredients to make these delicious feta cheese and sweet potato appetizers, because my kids and I LOVE sweet potatoes!

Fig, Prosciutto Ham and Feta Cheese Pizza

Fig, Prosciutto Ham and Feta Cheese Pizza

Fig season is upon us, and I couldn't pass up the chance to create a delicious recipe using the figs from my garden. Hence this Fig, Prosciutto ham and Feta cheese pizza ! We've had our fig tree for about 5 years  now. Last year, the fruits were attacked by bugs before we could enjoy them, so I'm mega happy to be able to harvest anything we can this year. These figs are juicy, plump and super sweet, and although beautiful to eat as is; I decided to add them to a sweet and savory pizza alongside some delicious Prosciutto ham and Feta cheese.

Camembert Cheese Fondue Board

Camembert Cheese Fondue Board

Winter rhymes with cozy, comforting food. And a cheese fondue sure ticks both boxes! A few years ago, I shared my recipe for a traditional French Savoyard Cheese Fondue here on the blog . It's the perfect cheese fondue recipe for entertaining!  But this year, I was inspired to re-vamp and make my cheese fondue a little lighter and easier to prepare. Hence this delicious Camembert cheese fondue, baked in its own box and served on a board of rainbow-colored veg!

'Tis the season for entertaining, and you can't go wrong with setting up a bountiful grazing board to feed your guests! Grazing boards have been so popular and trending on Pinterest for a couple of years now, and I can totally understand why! They are so quick and easy to put together, and are always a crowd-pleaser. Hence today's chocolate grazing board, which turns out to be the perfect dessert or treat to serve during the Thanksgiving festivities!

If you've been following the blog for while, you probably noticed how much I looooove a grazing board or cheese platter for any parties I host. They're so easy to put together and a real hit with adults and kids alike! Since the Super Bowl is coming up, I thought I'd share a super fun to make appetizer for you to add to your grazing board or cheese platters! Oh, and did I mention it's football shaped, AND that we made a video? 🏈😍

Christmas Wreath Cheese Platter Appetizer

Cheese boards and cheese platters have been trending now for a couple of years, and I'm not surprised. They're a no-bake, quick and easy to assemble appetizer that packs the wow factor for any party! For my Thanksgiving celebrations , you probably saw that   I served my cheese board with fruits and seasonal produce for a "harvest" bounty sort of feel.  But for my Christmas cheese platter, I wanted a simpler appetizer that was also very festive and even easier to assemble than my traditional, full-on cheese board.
