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! I’ve admired Kim’s blog for some time. It’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 you’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 wouldn’t otherwise get from her! It’s just too bad she can’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. It’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, it’s the kind of meal I can throw together quickly using what I have on hand.
