Kitchen Road Trip: Arkansas

<photo>

This week, we’re taking Kitchen Road Trip to Arkansas. My only memory of Arkansas is stopping there, briefly, during a road trip. Someone in my family figured out there was a town named Brinkley (my last name!) along the highway and we decided spontaneously to stop there. It was at night, so we only stayed long enough to eat a quick dinner, take a picture in front of a sign with our name on it and get stopped by quite possibly the longest, slowest train in the world. Though I didn’t get to explore any of Little Rock, Fayetteville or the back country, it still counts as a state visit by my standards. Although, I’d like to go back and have some of the culinary experiences that Arkansas is known for — watermelon, barbecue, cornbread, purple milkshakes… Well, I’m not so sure about that last one, but my friend Emmie tells me it’s true. Many thanks for your help on this one, Em! // Susannah

Crustless Three Cheese and Spinach Pie

It’s so nice to be home and back in the kitchen after two weeks in D.C. Last night I whipped up this easy spinach pie for dinner. My wise cousin Margie told me recently to “cook with intuition,” which, to me, means that if you feel like a recipe calls for too much or too little of something, don’t be afraid to modify it and make it your own. I almost never follow a recipe exactly, and that’s how I ended up with my version of Skinnytaste’s Easy Crustless Spinach and Feta Pie. It made for a great, light dinner. Enjoy! // susannah
