Crustless Quiche

The very first quiche I ever ate or made was one I found a recipe for somewhere that did not need a pie crust.  It was a Christmas morning and I wanted a breakfast I didn’t have to babysit.  Quiche fit the bill – stir some ingredients together and bake it – no monitoring needed.

We are still in the midst of a cold snap, so soup is on my mind all the time. It’s great for supper, great for lunch – warm, comforting, goes a long way, uses ingredients I have so I don’t have to go outside. Just before Christmas I bought a big bag of pre-cooked shrimp…then

It is brutally cold in Calgary and has been for two weeks or thereabouts. It’s been so cold, I actually did a little happy dance the other day when it rocketed up to -16! Right at this moment, it is -26 Celsius. That is -15 Fahrenheit. These are not temperatures I am thrilled about. The

There’s a story behind the spicy sausages….grab a chair and let’s get into it. I am a food canner. I have a 23 quart Presto pressure canner I have named Bubba…for no reason I can discern. My stove is old….I rent – if I owned, that stove would have been donated or given to someone

I always end up with leftover mashed potatoes. I overestimate how much we’re going to eat, or I underestimate how big those potatoes really are….one way or another, there’s always a small bowl of leftovers hiding in the fridge. The more I cook, and I cook a lot, the more little leftover bowls there will

Let me preface this with get the cheese cold, or just mix the cheese and bacon into the meat, unless someone has a suggestion as to how to keep the cheese in the burger. I made a cranberry habanero topped brie around Canadian Thanksgiving and still had about half of a brie round left. Couldn’t

This soup was a happy accident. I started out making Tuscan Wild Mushroom soup and didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes (WHAT?!) and some other things required by the recipe, and then I wasn’t in love with the flavour of what I did have, so I oomphed it up a little. Ingredients: 1 bell pepper 2-4

Friday and Saturday I absolutely could not be bothered to cook anything for supper. I had no ideas, had no motivation, no interest in making anything. So we had McDonald’s on Friday and Chinese food on Saturday. I feel no shame. I consider it a bit of a reset. Tonight, however, there was no way

The last of the rotisserie chicken needed to be used, but I don’t think that’s why the mancub suggested chicken a la king for supper. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know why he suggested it – just something he likes and we haven’t had for a long while. Regardless, it worked for dinner since I

I started out thinking I was going to make alfredo pasta, then I thought I’d add shrimp, then I decided not to have alfredo, then I decided I wanted garlicky lemon shrimp with pasta, then the recipe I was following called for spinach and the bag I had in the fridge….nope. So that changed that
