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...

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.

Vegetarian Pantry Pizza

October 6, 2011 Corresponding RecipesShopping Lists and Home Page PostsVegetarian  No comments

Recently I had the foresight to make some pizza dough in our bread maker.  I made the dough on a Sunday and then the pizza Monday.  There’s really no the need to make the dough a day ahead of time;  nor does one have to use a bread maker to make it.  (See the “pizza dough” recipe by using the search box.)

My plan was to make the pizza for meatless Monday, (Which I did.) but believe it or not the grocery store was out of zucchini.  (I like to hide shredded zucchini underneath the pizza cheese where my husband doesn’t notice it.)  So, I had to be a little creative.  This is what you’ll need if you’d like to make the pizza I ended up making (It was delicious!):

  • 1 batch of pizza dough – I add a clove of minced garlic and Italian seasoning to mine.
  • 1 medium sized can of tomato sauce
  • ol...

Moist Corn Muffins

Welcome to The Grocery Girl’s new blog format!  Let’s start with an easy side dish that can be made ahead of time or while you’re making the rest of a meal.  They’re good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  The ingredients are inexpensive.  They can also be made to be sweet or savory.

Here’s what you’ll need:

You’ll also need some cooking spray. (Alternatively, you can put a little bit of canola oil on a paper towel.  Lightly grease your muffin tins using that.)

Making these muffins is so easy.  Basically, you’re going to follow the corn muffin recipe that already exists on the Jiffy Mix box.  However, you’re going to add a small can of cream corn to the mixture.  The addition of the cream corn will add moisture and texture to your muffins...
