Another fabulous recipe from the Barefoot Contessa! I made the other Date Nut Bread I posted then this one thinking I'd have a bake-off. Well, they are both great and very different! I wound up with 2 keepers! The bread is very nice served with the recommended orange cream cheese, but that is entirely optional.
This is a dark, moist date nut bread like Thomas's or Dromedary --with the deep flavor or molasses! Healthy too--low fat and increased fiber. Don't use the packaged chopped dates as they contain added sugar. You can also make the loaf with white flour only. Enjoy!
This is an old recipe from my aunt. it is important to strain the custard! if you do this, I guarantee you will never have a "watery" pie!
If you want to save some calories, you can always make the custard in a pie pan and bake it in a "bain-marie".
This is the original quiche, which was more of a custard, without cheese. It is so rich it will wow your guests! In the original recipe the bacon is boiled for 5 minutes (to remove the smoke flavor) then drained and cooked crisp about 3 minutes --no need to do this if you don't have the time!
This is a nice twist on the traditional recipe--not dripping in butter! Easy enought for a weeknight dinner. My brother made it for a Sunday dinner, he had gotten it out of a local paper, and it was a big hit! You can use white meat chicken if desired.
This recipe comes from the CIA in Hyde Park, NY. It is the most delicious appetizer spread! Obviously you'll need to convert the amount to suit your situation. The prep and cooking time are my estimates.
