Four Cheese Quiche with Red Onions & Mustard

cheese quicheOK, I know. I posted a quiche recipe just last week, but honestly, is there really such a thing as ‘too much quiche’? Exactly. Quiche is one of those versatile dishes that looks pretty, tastes great and is perfect for a million and one different occasions. You can have quiche for lunch or dinner (although why not for breakfast or brunch?), take it along on a picnic, bring it to a potluck or to a neighbor or friend in need of a little TLC, and it makes great leftovers. The variations are pretty much endless. I actually can’t think of a single ingredient that won’t go well in a quiche. Have you ever had an escargot quiche, for example? Looks and sounds like heaven to me!
Quiche is also the perfect answer to a busy weeknight and a fridge full of bits and pieces that need to be used up.

Breakfast Strata

breakfast strataYesterday I decided we were in desperate need of a proper weekend. NO work. Zero. Zilch. The last two weekends were quite full, and our only break was Saturday afternoon. The next two weekends (wait, make that three) will be even busier. Next weekend I have a press event (I’ve been invited to try out a new restaurant, trust me, it’s work) and the one after that I will be in Amsterdam with a designer and photographer who are flying in from London for a special photo shoot (more on that later). Halloween weekend will probably be spent writing about the experiences of the weekend before. Geez, I’m in need of a break just writing this!
Anyhow, back to that ‘proper’ weekend, which to me implies comfort food, good wine and lots of couch time with my dog Pastis. The little rat. You won’t believe what he did yesterday, by the way. He went on a barking fest while I was on the phone conducting an important interview. Have you ever heard the bark of a dachshund? Little dogs, major bark.

Tomato, Spinach & Mozzarella Frittata, with a Side of Inspiration

frittataI just finished watching a video posted by a friend on Facebook that left me with a huge lump in my throat. Set to a melancholic song, old photographs of a family — children, grandchildren, marriages, births, deaths — slowly passed before my eyes. Each one full of emotion. Each one telling a story. A meaningful story.
