I am bringing the “year of making” to as many aspects of my life as I possibly can, and one very easy way for me to do this is through the meals I make. With some very simple ingredients – farm fresh eggs, milk, cheese, and some diced ham, you can have a very elegant but entirely satisfying dinner. I have based my recipe on Hubert Keller’s recipe for the same. Ham and Cheese Soufflé
I read with great regularity the Red Spoon Blog, however many times her recipe ideas do not work in my budget or on my time schedule. However, as she so aptly said, sometimes simpler is better.
This recipe is one that fits both categories – affordable and quick. I had my quiche in the oven in about 50 minutes. Now, the better part – I now have a healthy and nutritious lunch to bring to work – and it is delicious served room temperature!
I tweaked her recipe a bit – so if you are a “purist” for homemade piecrusts, you can find the complete directions here. However, my Pillsbury Pie Crust worked just fine, I just popped the extra crust in the freezer for the next time I make this dish!
I know many of you participate in 10 on Tuesday, but today it is just two – and a delicious two it is at that!
I have long been in search of the perfect bread recipe and, Gentle Reader; I have finally found it! The recipe comes from The Red Spoon – and it is incredibly simple.
Winter is wreaking havoc here in my little corner of the world. When I woke up this morning, the air temperature was about 10 below.
It has managed to inch its way up to 16 out, not quite a heat wave, but at least it is working in the right direction!
Up next, a big bowl of homemade split pea soup and some fresh, hot, homemade crusty bread.
If it cannot be warm outside, at least I will be warm inside.
My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with. ~ Oprah Winfrey
It has been an amazing week here at Casa del KatKnits and while there were not any baked potatoes, much was shared; from the quaintness of Saugatuck to the grandeur of Lake Michigan to my favorite food spots and having my best friend experience them all with me truly did make this week heaven.
Yesterday we headed north to visit Grand Haven and the day was perfect. You can see some of my pictures on Flickr of the sights from the day.
I even managed to squeeze in some baking so I could send some cookies home with Steve.
