Kitchen Road Trip: Arizona

arizona-cover

This week’s Kitchen Road Trip brings us to Arizona. Ah, the Southwest. It’s home to one of my favorite things: Mexican-American food. It is also home to one of my least favorite things: heat. (Yes, I know it’s a “dry heat,” but really I have no concept of what that is, but I sure could take a little right now!) I drove through Arizona on a road trip, and we stopped at the Grand Canyon, but I haven’t spent any time exploring anything else. However, I am so inspired by all the bright colors and patterns I came across while researching this list. I also stumbled across a number of shops and restaurants to which I want to go, and I’m in luck because I owe my aunt a visit to see her in Phoenix! Plus, I’m dying to go back to the Grand Canyon, and I’d love to check out Sedona, too (pictured above). Hope this list warms  you up a little bit… //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
