When Kim from Cravings of a Lunatic asked me to do a guest post on her lovely blog, there was only one answer: Of course! Iâ€™ve admired Kimâ€™s blog for some time. Itâ€™s written in a funny, candid voice and is full of inspiring recipes. Having recently become blogging buddies, I can also tell you that Kim is a thoughtful, supportive individual, the kind that youâ€™re lucky to have in your corner. We spent some time considering what recipe to include and settled on one that Kim herself would never post: quiche. Kim hates eggs and is lactose intolerant so this egg-based quiche with ricotta is definitely a recipe her readers wouldnâ€™t otherwise get from her! Itâ€™s just too bad she canâ€™t try it (head to her blog for the recipe).
I like quiche for many reasons, but its main draw for me is its versatility. I love that you can throw in basically whatever you have in your fridge, and that there is an endless possibility of meat, vegetable, and cheese combinations for the filling. Itâ€™s also a versatile dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, hot or cold. Since I always have puff pastry and eggs on hand, itâ€™s the kind of meal I can throw together quickly using what I have on hand.
