  1. This is a lovely bread. Ends up looking more complicated than it really is. Tastes just like you'd expect it to with these ingredients - if you're a spinach, feta and kalamata olive fan - this is for you! I baked it for about 30 minutes in a bundt pan and it turned out great. Don't be tempted to add salt - it's plenty salty with these ingredients! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Great recipe! This recipe means 10 ounces weight spinach, because it shrinks down in the micro-wave. Makes fluffy bread, doesn't even need butter! Great recipe Chilicat! Salty enough for everyone, and really fills up! Love It!


I grew up here... <img src=""> and ended up here. <img src=""> Both places are beautiful in their own way, although Arizona is where I learned that the little marshmallows in the Lucky Charms box are actually supposed to be crisp and crunchy, not gummy and all stuck together.
