Ridiculously Easy, Best Quiche Recipe Ever

Quiche-How-To.jpg

Breakfast. Brunch. Lunch. Dinner. Meatless. Meat-lover. Drop-in guests. Comfort food. Picnic fare. Potluck. It is ridiculously easy to make quiche (and cheap!)

Baked-Omelete.jpg

This is what I baked up with whatever I found in the fridge that morning. Kind of a Whatever Baked Omelet – no crust, so it wasn’t a quiche.  Frittata? Whatever! It’s just eggs, milk, cheese, asparagus and cilantro.

Chestnut Cakes

Do you remember THIS THROWDOWN (to myself)?  My jar of Roland chestnuts was befuddling. What the heck does a California girl make with chestnuts? Plenty of folks tweeted suggestions; most were savory (as in, toss with brussel sprouts. Seriously?). A few readers told me to eat them from the jar. Tempting, but I envisioned something […]

  Lately, I’ve been eating challah on Fridays around sundown. My Jewish readers might think, “Such a good girl, going to Shabbat.” Catholic-raised me must tell the truth: I volunteer at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital until 5 PM on Fridays.
