Make Ahead

Author Notes

These were inspired by those zucchini and spinach squares you see all over made with baking mix. The little crunch on the edges is especially nice and the aleppo adds just a little background warmth. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
