1QuarantineCookbook 2020Cooking TogetherWithoutGettingTogether

2 “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans. Allen Saunders 1957No truer words were ever spoken, especially in the year 2020. As we all looked forward to the coming of spring and the blessings of warm and sunny days spent outdoors, an unwelcomed stranger came into our midst (Covid-19), and just like that, we were ‘quarantined.’Usually, folks say that things like this will be stories “we’ll tell future generations”. Not this time because our children and grandchildren are experiencing it right along with us. The whole world is, which is why ‘everyone’ keeps saying - “We’re all in this together.” So what do we do when schools and offices are closed, stores and restaurants are closed, commerce is at a standstill, gatherings of more than ten people are prohibited, we’re advised to stay 6’ from each other while wearing a mask and - there’s no toilet paper? We Cook! Then we EAT..........and cook some more........and eat again.As we are driven back into our kitchens, to dusty recipe boxes, old books or new found food sites on the Internet, we end up with some surprisingly delightful results This ‘book’ is a fun conglomoration of recipes, old and new, from our kitchens or the kitchens of others, which have become personal favorites. By sharing them here, we hope they will soon become favorites of yours as well.

48JoAnne Levy’sSpinach Pie(Spanakopita)Photo: J. Levy

49INGREDIENTS:Preheat the oven to 350 016 sheets phyllo dough, thawed3 teaspoons olive oil3 tablespoons dried parsley6 teaspoons dried dill-I prefer fresh dill 1 onion, finely chopped (equivalent to about ¾ cup)¾ cup butter, melted (equivalent to 1 and sticks)½3 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry- (I also used fresh spinach)12 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (equivalent to about a heaping 1 cups)¼DIRECTIONS:Butter a 9 x 13 inch pan and set it aside.In a skillet, over low/medium heat, add olive oil and finely chopped onion. Cook until slightly browned.Thaw frozen spinach and squeeze out water. I placed thawed spinach in a colander and use paper towels to press water out. You don’t need to squeeze it like you are trying to get back at a mortal enemy. Just enough to remove some of the moisture so that your spinach pie doesn’t get soggy.Add the spinach into skillet and stir everything together.Remove spinach mixture from heat and set aside. Let rest to room temp.In medium bowl, mix together egg, parsley, dill, salt, pepper, & feta cheese.Add spinach mixture and stir everything together and set aside. (Make sure the spinach mixture is not hot because you don’t want to scramble the eggs.)Make sure the phyllo dough is completely thawed. It is super fragile so if it not, it will break. In general, be extra gentle when handling each layer phyllo because it is so thin and it tears easily.Lay 1 phyllo sheet into pan and brush melted butter on top of the sheet and up sides. Do this for 8 phyllo sheets.Add spinach filling on top in an even layer.Lay 1 phyllo sheet on top of the spinach mixture and brush melted butter on top of the sheet. Do this for 8 phyllo sheets.Cut (or score) into 18 squares (or however big you want the pieces) prior to baking. Phyllo is super fragile & crispy after it bakes, so this will allow you to portion it later without destroying it.Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until the top is golden brown. (I baked mine for 48 minutes.)Let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving.3 eggs¾ teaspoon salt¾ teaspoon pepperYield: 18 squareslllllllllllllll
