Crustless Asparagus Quiche (gluten-free)

Quiche is one of those things that I make for special occasions, and my Quiche Lorraine recipe is always a hit.  I wanted to make a more ‘springy’ version without the crust to lighten it up a bit more (I use lighter cream and far less bacon than a traditional version does as well).  Of course make sure that your … View The Post

Super Charged Hot Cereals

Plum Coffee Cake (Two-Ways)

I’m tired.  Of picking plums.  No really, I am. Don’t get me wrong, I’m super grateful to have a plum tree, and don’t want to sound like a whiner, but this tree HAS NOT STOPPED.  Seriously, this small, unassuming, and not-so-pretty plum tree in our yard has proven to be the Magic Porridge Pot of fruit trees (if you haven’t … View The Post
