Spinach Pie, Buttermilk Biscuits, and Smoothies

We had a semi brunch for supper tonight. I made a spinach pie based on a recipe I found in one of my newest cookbooks- Whole Foods for the Whole Family. I also made buttermilk biscuits from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. To finish off the meal, we had smoothies made with frozen strawberries, peaches, and pineapple; pineapple and orange juices; and plain yogurt.

Jacob devoured his smoothie and ate all but two bites of his slice of spinach pie. His crumbled his biscuit and scattered it all over the dining room floor. He never has been a big fan of biscuits.

Spinach Pie Ingredients
1 lb fresh spinach
3 green onions, white parts only, diced
drizzle of olive oil
1 cup cubed cheddar cheese
2 eggs, beaten
3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
dash of salt and pepper
dash of garlic powder

9" pie crust

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and onion to pan. Cover and heat until spinach is wilted. Drain spinach and allow to cool slightly.
In a medium bowl, mix together spinach and remaining ingredients (except the pie crust, of course). Spread in pie shell. Bake 20 minutes.


  1. is that the one offered by La Leche League? I never read that one, but I do have Whole Foods for Babies and Toddlers and think it's AWESOME!

  2. Whole Foods for the Whole Family is from LLL. I would recommend it!
