Top Review by Joseph Bahr

Although your spinach recipes vary from 'nice' to 'spectacular', I am a purist where spinach is concerned. Give it to me straight out of the good earth cooked in only the water clinging to the leaves. MAYBE with a dot of butter and/or salt. Maybe! Your site is most enjoyable and my family has had the good fortune to benefit from the many meals based on your recipes.As my kids say: "You Rule!"
