Remolding kitchen is not an easy job. I confess that I am exhausted with the noise and dust. If, are you planning make an remolding, keep in mind that you don’t have a cooker for a few weeks, or, worst, for month. In my case I think is a month now. And I really miss cook and blogging.

Remolding kitchen

In the other hand, this week, I had a serious problem with my internet line. So, without internet I started to watch photos, which I pretend transform in little pictures for decorated one of the walls of my new kitchen and I found Spanakopita’s photo. I made one for my husband’s birthday, and I made equal Peter’s recipe. If you don’t know Peter´s blog Kalofagas you must know, is full of delicious Greek recipes But I do not made, like him, the dough, I just bought. The recipe is easy and delicious



12 Phyllo sheets

500gr. ricotta cheese 3 large eggs 500 gr. feta cheese 1/2 cup chopped fresh dil 2 bunches of scallions, sauteed in oil (softened) 3 bunches of spinach, washed, blanced, drained (or 3 boxes of from frozen spinach) salt and pepper to taste

  1. Mix all of the above ingredients and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, reserve.
  2. Lay 6 phyllo sheets in the pan, lightly brushing each with oil or melted butter before adding the next layer. Brush all the edges first since that is where drying will begin.
  3. Spoon the spinach mixture over the top of the phyllo and carefully spread evenly to within about 1/2 inch of the edges
  4. Lay 6 more phyllo sheets on top, brushing each one with oil or melted butter before adding the next layer.
  5. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes to set.
  6. Bake until golden, about 30-minutes.

Sylvia, your Spanakopita is gorgeous, you made the filling properly and you don't have to apologize for using store-bought phyllo.

Bravo, OPA and Ole!

Sylvia..We are under a whole house remodel! My kitchen is fully functional now..but not all my cabinetry is complete nor is my back splash in. But I love my new and beautiful appliances..it made the wait well worth it!
I cooked with an electric skillet and used a crock pot..in a bathroom no less!! :)
My thoughts will be with you during this exiting time!!

I think your idea to decorate your kitchen with food pics is a great one. I plan to do that when I move also :)

Can't wait to feel the final reveal of your new kitchen!

Um prato Grego bonito, clássico! Sorte boa com sua cozinha que remodela, Sylvia. Eu fiz algum trabalho menor o último poucos anos em meus, mas sei disruptivo uma revisão cheia é. Dado seu sentido do estilo, eu sou certo que stunning quando terminado.
