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.

I am having such a good time with my new cast iron braiser.  Every chance I get, I use it.  I’m sure the novelty will wear off eventually, but I’m not 100% certain.  It’s so much fun….I’m a kitchen nerd! It browns things beautifully, it holds heat and spreads it evenly, and it weighs a

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

Once upon a when-my-kids-were-little, I would ask the question, “what do you guys want for supper”, and a little voice would answer (generally the mancub), far more often than I appreciated, “Hamburger Helper”. Sorry, Betty Crocker, but I hate that stuff. It’s bland and the sauce is plastic-y and no amount of dressing it up

I want to preface this with….the wrap contents are low carb. The wrap I used, was not. If you want it lower carb, use a cauli wrap or another kind of low carb wrap commercially available. My recent favourite breakfast, and still reigning champion, is a bowl of oatmeal with chili flakes, cheese and an

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
