I write “hors d’oeuvres” about 800 times a day at work and I still can’t spell it properly the first try.

Feta, Cranberry & Caramelized Onion Tarts
1/2 pound feta6 oz dried cranberries2 large red onions2-3 Tbsp olive oilsalt30 mini filo shells (find in the dessert section in the frozen food aisle) 
Thinly slice red onion. In a saute pan, toss onion, olive oil and salt and cook covered over low/medium heat until caramelized (about 30 minutes), stirring regularly. Bake filo cups according to directions on box (3-5 mins at 375 oven). In a food processor, combine feta and cranberries until well smooth. Spoon feta-cranberry mixture into crisp filo cups and top with caramelized onion.
These little tarts are a perfect bite, but be careful – they are very rich! 
Last summer I had the idea to throw a “food you can eat with your hands party, which never came together. I re-planned it for tonight and I’m looking forward to catching up with friends after a crazy past two weeks (more on that later). I feel like I haven’t been spending quality time with my kitchen lately, so I’ve been in here all day, creating things as I go.
