My feet are killing me right now. In fact, my entire body is rebelling; my shoulders ache, my calves are tight, my hamstrings are twitching… but it’s a good pain.

These flavorful broccoli feta turnovers are like a bigger, heartier version of spanakopita. Get this easy-to-prepare appetizer recipe from SavorySimple.net.

It was this beautiful loaf cake with a layer of green-tinted pistachio cake on the bottom and decadent chocolate cake on top. The cake was rich, moist and we begged her for it at every occasion.
