I think we can all agree that this year has been the year of the TikTok baked feta pasta, am I right? 🙂 I don’t even have a TikTok account (call me old-fashioned 😉 ) but I started hearing about this viral recipe a few months ago and decided to dig in and see what the fuss was all about.

Whoops. 🙂 I know that goes against my goal of trying more new recipes but trust me…this one is delicious.… Read more
