Fallen Quiche

When I first started this blog I had the idea to do a series of posts called “Fallen Quiche” to memorialize my many, many botched recipes into cyber history.  I have been waiting for an opportunity to share with the world my culinary inadequacies but have since been without an example.  A combination of years more experience in the kitchen than I had when I first got married and simpler meals heading into spring have increased the likelyhood of successful recipe execution.

Alas, to no one’s surprise at our dinner table, I have failed. *hangs head*

This is a Tomato Quiche from http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=m0bdd-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=083619263X&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrMore-With-Less Cookbook (World Community Cookbook).  I adore this cookbook for many reasons.  It is easily understood, keeps you on a budget and was recommended by my Tuesday Girls to the Rescue Coffee Group.  
It’s kind of a secret society.

The recipe is very simple but like every recipe it does call for one main ingredient or should I say requirement.  

Do not lock yourself in an office with three noisy boys and TwitterMoms or you will not hear the timer. 

This is a crucial guideline.
Typically my children love this and they even ate it tonight after flicking off the burnt crust.  I have always been afraid to try a quiche.  Fear of falling, I guess.  After having many friends tell me that making a quiche was easy I thought I might give it a try.  After one of my girlfriends told me that you could substitute just about any ingredient (leftovers, different meats and veggies) and even bake it without a crust,  I knew it was something I would be in to.  I am nothing if not flexible and I never follow a recipe completely.  It’s not my style.

  1. I LOVE this recipe (and that cookbook – it changed my life, no lie)! I'll bet it tasted fine. Another secret: you can mess up quiche and it's still fine to eat. Try this in the summer with FRESH tomatoes and the zucchini bread recipe and fresh corn on the cob – ooh, can't you just taste summer?!
