Broccoli and Cheese Crustless Quiche

Call it what you want – a frittata, a crustless quiche, but in the end it’s all the same thing – a fancy schmancy omelet with stuff in it. This particular recipe is especially good. Broccoli and Cheese are one of those combinations that are made for each other (although I used Romesco cauliflower in […]

Admin: Cleaning Out the Cobwebs

At the end of the year, I’ve realized that I’ve done so much, and rarely posted about any of it. The end result? A “drafts” folder with well over 100 entries in it. I’m going to use January to get all caught up, so you get the information when it’s still fresh and useful. In […]
