"I’m a former interior designer and landscape designer. At the moment I get to enjoy being at home and working only when I want to. I like rollerblading, hiking, backpacking and trips to the ocean. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and moved to the Northwest when I was thirty, over twenty years ago. I’m afraid they’ll have to bury me here in WA. This is God’s country and I’m never leaving. I have a smallish collection of cookbooks, preferring to use the library and a copy machine. Among my favorites though, are: Recipes 1-2-3, by Rozanne Gold, a collection of recipes containing no more than 3 ingredients (excepting water, salt and pepper); A Treasury of Great Recipes, by Mary and Vincent Price, recipes collected from friends and chefs of great restaurants around the world; The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, by Nancy Harmon Jenkins, about a collection of cuisines I’m convinced are the healthiest in the world and The Low-Calorie Gourmet, by Pierre Franey. Currently my passions are our dogs, the garden, cooking, the natural world and of course, Dh. I can now add Zaar to that list of passions (translate: addiction). We have three dogs, two rescued and one adopted. They are Sugarpea, a Golden Retriever, Chickpea, a Llasa Apso and Sweetpea, a Shih Tzu; small, medium and large. We’re quite a sight out on the trail. One of the things I am most fond of about living here is the ability to vegetable garden year ‘round."

    I made this for the DM and friend who was keeping her company while the DH and I went to the movies and dinner. They thoroughly enjoyed and the DM's friend couldn't believe there were only 2 eggs in the quiche and this is the first time I have made a quiche without cheese (seemed almost sacrilegious). I did use a commercial pre-rolled short pastry sheet which out of sheer habit I precooked weighed down with baking beads for 7 minutes at 200C, removed beads and cooked for a further 4 minutes at 175C. Put the lightly boiled asparagus (which was still crispy but not raw) into the pie plate and poured the creamed/egg mix over, having used fresh garlic chives from the garden with some freshly ground pepper. Baked at 175C for 35 minutes and it was perfect. DM's friend gave the slices a reheat and served with the garden salad and coleslaw on the side that I had made. Thank you sugarpea for a very nice quiche recipe. made for Bargain Basement tag game.
