  1. Great quiche! I sauteed half an onion and some garlic and added that to the mixture. It did take a bit longer than the time listed, but totally worth the wait. Thanks for posting!
  2. Def tasty. I made a few changes. I added 4 eggs instead of 3. I used black pepper instead of white pepper. I also added a little diced onion. The onion really kicked it up a notch.
  3. I love spinach & feta cheese, so I figured this would be a winning recipe ... and I was right! To add some extra flavor, I chopped & sauteed a small sweet onion in olive oil until it was soft & lightly caramelized, then tossed in a few fresh mushrooms (sliced) that I had on hand, as well as a couple of small cloves of garlic (minced). I let the onion mixture cool while I drained the spinach & added the other ingredients - then added the onion mixture & poured it into the prepared pastry. (Note: I didn't even bother cooking the spinach - just thawed it out & squeezed it dry.) The quiche baked perfectly without overflowing, and came out of the oven looking as pretty as GaylaJ's picture! I had a small piece while it was still warm and it was sooo good. Had another piece for my lunch today, and it was even better since it had cooled overnight in the fridge & the flavors melded together. Excellent! I will make this again - thanks for posting! -M =)
  4. This was good! I didn't bother with baking the crust separately first and used parmigiano reggiano instead of romano as that's what I had on hand. It took an hour to bake (twice as long as the directions stated). Thanks for sharing!
  5. Delicious! I've made it for more than one potluck and get nothing but rave reviews :)

I live in a small (but growing to be very large) town in Oklahoma. I am currently a student, studying library science. I like to cook and eat, play the piano and violin, and train and play with my two dogs. I don't have a single favorite cookbook, but of the ones I use, I like BHG the most. Their recipes are usually very good. I would say my passion is learning new things--and traveling to new places. I also enjoy writing fiction. Some of my pet peeves are: 99% of the drivers in Oklahoma; people who don't take good care of their pets; people with NO TASTE; intellectual psychobabble nonsense; boring people; the list goes on forever!
