on a different note, making food makes me happy. mike is always so appreciative & impressed - an added little bonus. (i made a spaghetti sauce on the weekend which involved cooking some ground beef and adding it to a jar of sauce - and that darling man was again so appreciative & impressed! i felt guilty taking his compliments!) cooking is again one of those things that gets put to the back burner when i'm running around like a crazy lady between jobs. but it is just so lovely when i carve out that time.
inspired by rachel's cute mini spinach quiches, i set out to make my own. a spinach quiche was obviously going to taste very... spinach-y but it was a bit too much for me. so i tried again - martha's crust recipe paired with a broccoli garlic quiche recipe from epicurious. broccoli and garlic, always a delicious combination. and it proved to be just what these flaky little crusts needed. definitely a perfect winter comfort food.
