A Little About Me

New York, New York
As a newly married woman, it has become my mission in life to learn how to cook. Gone are the days of picking up sushi and ordering curries. In order to jump-start my education, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education's Fine Cooking I course where I learned the basics, from roasting to boiling to mousse-making (ok, maybe not that basic)! I've attempted to replicate some recipes - somewhat successfully- and create a few of my own. This blog is for friends and foodies and is intended to document my cooking adventures (and occasional fiascoes). Enjoy the pictures and bon appetite!

Quiche, The "Right" Way

Last week I posted a recipe for a spinach quiche which turned out more like a tart after realizing I had accidentally removed the metal tin meant to support the pre-made piecrust. Well, I thought I'd give it another go and attempt a "real" quiche this time! I really loved the base I made last time so I stuck with the same recipe and swapped the spinach for sliced button mushrooms. I sauteed the mushrooms and leeks (as opposed to throwing them in raw last time) with olive oil, salt and pepper. Take a look and tell me you don't want a slice of this right now!

Mixing them in with the liquid ingredients...

a nice thick, eggy quiche which made a great dinner for my husband and I earlier this week!
