Spinach Pie

've been excited about this recipe ever since I tasted it at our end of year Bible study brunch. I was on the prowl for the woman who brought this crustless Greek flavored egg and spinach pie, and thankfully I found her, chatted her up, and nabbed the recipe to make in my own kitchen. This pie is beautiful. Just beautiful. And effortless--by this I mean that the most difficult thing you will need to do is squeeze the water out of defrosted frozen spinach. You can make this ahead, you can double it, you can freeze it. What more could you want? Just try and forget about how much cheese is in this baby and enjoy your meal. I served this for dinner tonight with a side of bacon (for my husband's sake) and a fresh snap pea salad I came up with as I tried to use up some farmer's market produce. I can only imagine how glorious it will be when the tomatoes come from my garden and not from the grocery store.

Spinach Pie
-from Margie Loprinzi

-2 packages frozen chopped spinach
-3 eggs
-2 cups small curd cottage cheese
-1 tsp (plus extra for garnish) of Greek seasoning. Margie recommends Cavenders (you can get this at HyVee). I of course used the Greek seasoning from Penzeys...it's one of about 5 of their spices I literally could not live without. Hmmm..maybe I should do a Penzeys post???
-16 oz (yes, this is ONE POUND or 4 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese)
-1 small onion, chopped
-sliced tomato (you'll need about 2)

Defrost spinach and squeeze all the moisture out until dry. Mix together with cottage cheese, cheddar, eggs, Greek seasoning, and egg. Pour into a well-sprayed deep dish pie plate. Top with slices of tomato and sprinkle with more Greek seasoning. Bake at 350 for 50-60 min, or until set and lightly browned on top. Let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.

 Told ya it was gorgeous

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
