I'll admit this is the first time I have ever made anything with pomegranate or pomegranate molasses, but this little sandwich with melted kasseri cheese, spinach and a sweet/tart pomegranate vinaigrette was extremely satisfying. —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!
