Yes, you read that right. The “cream” is pudding like in consistency so, of course, feel free to eat it sans crepe. Peter and I each ate 3 cream filled crepes and we were very well satiated to say the least. There was enough cream leftover for another serving.

Freezing Quiche

June 3, 2013 Cooking MethodsMake Ahead MadnessShopping Lists and Home Page Posts  No comments

I’ve been researching freezing quiche. Recently, I posted about making two quiches (of the same variety) at the same time.  (I suggested doing this for Mother’s Day in case you were entertaining.) However, entertaining isn’t the only time you might choose to make two quiches at the same time; it makes a lot of sense to bake two quiches at once. Take into account you’re probably using refrigerated pie crusts and they usually come in boxes of two. Therefore, you can use both in one instance. (Frozen, not yet baked pie crust does not have an extremely long freezer life.) But also, baked quiche freezes very well!

  • Allow the quiche to cool COMPLETELY after baking it and before you freeze it.
  • Once the quiche is cooled completely, wrap it in foil (yes, foil) and then wrap in freezer (butcher’s) p...

Thai Pork Medallions with Peanut Sauce

May 17, 2013 Cooking MethodsCorresponding RecipesShopping Lists and Home Page Posts  No comments

I like grilling as much as the next girl. Which is to say, I have yet to change-out the gas tank on our grill… so, I made pork “satay” using a saute pan the other night. Also, I didn’t skewer the pork, so it wasn’t really satay. I have to say, I’m very pleased with the way it turned-out. The pork was tender and flavorful. And of course, if you’ve ever had the satay version, you know the sauce is delicious. The medallions cook in a jiffy, although if you’re using one medium to large sized saute pan, you’ll have to cook them in batches. Still, they only took me about 15 mins. to cook once pounded and marinated. I served them with jasmine rice and edamame.

Grocery Girl Quiche: Slightly Spicy, Spinach and Red Pepper

May 3, 2013 Bonus Recipes/VegetarianCorresponding RecipesShopping Lists and Home Page PostsVegetarian  No comments

I could have very easily called these quiches: Recently when I visited my Dad, he really wanted quiche and this is what we had on-hand, quiches. But that didn’t appeal to the practical side of my nature. So, alternatively, the above name is not only shorter, but it also references the quiches’ light, yet still savory quality.  Consider making these quiches for Mother’s Day served along with the accompaniments of your choice; think veggie or regular sausage links, fresh fruit, bacon etc.
