Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Spinach Pie

Well, in the words of Popeye... "I yam what I yam." I have no idea what I really mean by that - but any time I eat spinach, Popeye cartoons come to mind.

In any case, this is a very tasty and low in fat recipe from the "Diabetics for Dummies" cookbook. I feel incredibly healthy with every bite. Enjoy!

(Serves 4)

Nonstick cooking spray
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
1 cup chicken broth
¼ tsp dried marjoram, crumbled
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
1 cup skim milk
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
¼ tsp black pepper


Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 9” pie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Squeeze all the water out of the thawed spinach; set aside.

In a small saucepan, cook onion and carrot with chicken broth and marjoram, uncovered, at low boil, stirring occasionally, until all liquid has evaporated and vegetables are nearly glazed. This will take about 20 minutes. Spread vegetables out on a sheet pan to quickly cool.

In a bowl, whisk egg whites and whole egg. Add milk, spinach, cheese, pepper and the cooled vegetable mixture. Mix well.

Pour mixture into pie pan; bake uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes, until filling is set. Remove and cool.

Delicious! Will make this again. Do you think it will freeze well?

I'm not sure about freezing it... but it couldn't hurt to try freezing a piece and see how it turns out. Let me know! Thanks.
