Spinach Quiche

Spinach Quiche

We were in the rose garden's this weekend with my brother and sister-in-law looking at all the pretty flowers they had, when out of no where Gina (SIL), says to me, "Carla, you need to make some quiche and snickerdoodles. Thank you."

Well I suppose if I don't have another choice!

Lucky for her, I just happen to enjoy making quiche just as much as I enjoy eating it ;) And anytime I make something, it is pretty much a chance to have a blog post, and boy do we love blogging! That's why I am here! To get my creative outlet my telling you silly stories (like this). Oh yeah and baking/cooking and taking photos too. I love all of these so much and that is why I do it. To share with you what I have fun doing. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I do with writing it.

 

I almost didn't get to share this with you guys though. I made this and something else I can't share with you yet Monday, took photos of the other treat I made, and by the time I was getting ready to take these pictures it was getting pretty dark out (not to mention all the rain clouds making it seem like its getting darker even earlier), so the lighting just wasn't ideal for taking photos. I figured it was best to wait a day to take the photos.

  • No, there was still enough, but as you can see, it was already more than half gone by the time I got around to getting pictures done! Luckily I got any at all!
  • I guess I'll be needing to make another one, and another, and another!
  • Goodness this quiche is good!
  • I love making quiche, and this is another top one in my book!
  • I wanted to up the health factor slightly so I added more spinach than I did in my last quiche recipe (hence the name). And a few more veggies. And more cream.
  • Oh wait. That's not healthy.
  • Never mind.
