On Saturday, I was in the mood for a quiche for lunch/dinner and (after we got back from the ER and oral surgeon...long story, will explain later) lately cooking, and baking has brought me such peace and calmness. It's been a joy for me to whip up yummy things, especially baking.
I wanted to make a spinach quiche, but when I looked in our freezer all I had was lots of mixed veggies, and broccoli florets, and I remembered my friend Bianca making her quiche with broccoli so I went online and found a Martha Stewart recipe...Martha used small dishes and made her quiches crustless, but I had some pie crusts in the freezer so I put all the ingredients in a pie crust...and it came out to perfection (I baked for 1 hour at 400 degrees...if you do Martha's crustless version you bake at 350 for 35-40 min).
What I love about making a quiche is that it lasts forever in our house. Because the kids are not huge fans (they will take a few bites), John and I are able to have a piece per sitting and the pie usually lasts about 3 days for us. It's also an easy, quick heat up breakfast/lunch for John who is always on the run.
