Meet My Featured Friend – Deb Pafko

This is my very dear friend  Deb Sullivan Pafko. I met Deb almost 20 years ago while we were both building our houses-we were back yard neighbors. She is the mother of 6 beautiful kids and truly the strongest woman I know. A fun fact – at one time Deb & I use to walk 96 miles a week , with 9 kids together ( before cell phones) the kids got really creative on how to catch us lol ! Deb changed my life forever– she would send over her Son Matthew with this incredible gourmet food for me to try. I was blown away- how could she cook such amazing food with 6 kids?!! That inspired me to step up my game! With moving to Forest Lake I no longer look at the back of the Pafko house, and sadly Matthew left us 3 years ago to brain cancer. We’ve remained friends through the miles & to this day we still share a passion for great recipes, Deb- you are such an amazing friend ❤

This recipe for Greek feta cheese salad was the first recipe she gave me and I have made this seriously a million times-
