Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

I like this recipe but changed the crust and the filling to fit what I had in the fridge. I used rye bread crumbs as the crust and instead of the herbs, I replaced it with fig. It was the right combination of sweet/savory/salty that my family looks for when they come to our house and it was different and still seasonal.
I was looking for something new to make for our first Christmas party of the year and found this. I tried it out first on the family and they loved it. Even our loveable Grinch (Great GrandPa he hates everything that does not have ketchup on it.) Made for friends and family and spent good portion of the night directing people to your web site to get the recipe. I excepet that I will eating this at many different parties.
I have made this numerous times, I LOVE Feta! With the Holidays upon us, I know I will be making it a lot.
