Mushroom, Spinach & Mozzarella Mini Crustless Quiches

Filed under Home Cooking + Recipes

With Easter this weekend, as well as the beginning of Passover, it’s prime time for brunch.

For me, brunch is not complete without at least one egg dish gracing your table.

When you’ve got company over, making eggs to order is not the way to go. Who wants to make 15 omelets or eggs over easy? Heck no!

Luckily, there’s make-ahead egg dishes that get the job done, and are kid friendly to boot. Kids seem to like little, individual servings of things. To get the little ones interested, make quiches in muffin tins. They’re all ready to go in single servings, and voila! Watch them disappear off their serving plate. Read More »

Sausage and Potato Breakfast Bake

Filed under Home Cooking + Recipes

It’s Sunday.  Ahhh.  Time to rest, relax and…well, do a few of my favorite things.

This should come as no surprise, dear reader, that I love, love cookbooks. Trips to the bookstore involve me bee-lining straight to the cooking section to peruse the shelves filled with glorious cooking knowledge.

The weekend, then, is the time I get to sit down, surrounded by cookbooks, new and old, and read them. Yes, read. For me, cookbooks are not simply to be read while standing over the stove, following a recipe. Good cookbooks can be read like any other novel or work of literature. A well-written cookbook can not only teach you about technique and ingredients, but can transport you to the writer’s world through their passion and love for food. Not all cookbooks are written with an overt story written through it, but just by reading the recipes, a kind of story can be woven through the ingredients used and the way they use them.

For me, it’s pure entertainment, with a dash of education. Read More »

Potato Fennel Hash

Filed under Home Cooking + Recipes

All right, before I delve into this post on the amazing Potato and Fennel Hash, I feel I have some explaining to do.

No new post since early [email protected]!  Yes, my friends it is true.  And I apologize for my absence.  My only excuse is a lame one…the holidays.  Yes, folks, the holidays.  That time of year when things get turned upside-down, activities increase and productivity turns to a pathetic lull.

The truth is I had a great holiday season with my family and friends, and I hope you did as well.  It’s time to get back in action here, and share some of the fabulous things I’ve been cooking. Read More »

Spinach Feta Pop-in-Your-Mouths

Filed under Home Cooking + Recipes

You know you’re onto something when your typically smart-ass brother walks in the door and says, “What smells good?”

I wish I could tell you how they smelled…but I can’t smell anything.  My senses are disabled.   I’m sick.   With what, I don’t know.  But when I’m sick, I cook…for other people.  I can’t taste a darn thing either.

And yes, I named these.  Can you tell? Read More »

Quiche is the perfect weekend meal.  Really, no more of this “real men don’t eat quiche” crap.  If you’re a real man, you’ll eat whatever the heck you want.
