Another quiche blog? Afraid so ...


Quiche I made using found ingredients and imagination.

I can just read your minds, here she goes again talking about quiche.  Sorry, I can't help it.  I love quiche!
Quiche and salad and you have a meal!  I suppose my favorite is classic quiche lorraine, the one shown in this blog was a little different, I used two or three different kinds of cheese with the traditional bacon.  Also, I added sauteed mushrooms and onions, there goes the mushroom word again.  We love them, too.  I also added a splash of salsa.

A word about the crust:  I make my own and have all my life.  My mother made her own pie crusts all her cooking life, even working a full time job.  When I was a teenager, I spent some of my summers perfecting the art of making lemon meringue pies with homemade crust.  Of course, I had watched both grandmothers make their own crust but the best way of learning was watching my mother.

Everytime I go east, I buy White Lily Flour to bring back with me. It has been in my life for a very long time.

Using iced cold water and working quickly
makes the crust easier to handle

I have made so many pie crusts with fluted edges I could
do it with my eyes shut!
