If you were to ask me if I like spinach, the answer would be a quick and hard “No.”  Sure, I occasionally add it to my fruit smoothies, but I can’t imagine eating it raw in a salad (which my husband loves) or cooked by itself.  I recently came around on creamed corn, but I don’t know about creamed spinach.

Turns out, maybe spinach is like coconut for me.  It has to be the right recipe.  I would say that I don’t like coconut, yet I LOVE this coconut crumb cake and these blueberry snack bars… both loaded with coconut.
