That was odd...

Right. So, I strongly dislike Betty Crocker now. At least, one of the recipes. Back when I was over at allura and greywolfmd's house, I wanted to make Quiche. Unfortunately, some of the people there don't like egg, so it never came to pass. Luckily, that is not an issue here.

Unfortunately, Betty Crocker is a deceptive *expletive deleted* who should *expletive-filled rant deleted*. Now, the Betty Crocker Cookbook has a recipe for Quiche Lorraine. The one in the book actually calls for twelve strips of bacon, but still. Apparently, when they say the words 'nine inches' and 'pie crust', they are actually talking about some type of dish that is deeper than I expected. So, I ended up with two quiche(s?) to deal with. Also, a mess as the one that I thought looked awfully full overflowed.

Fortunately, I seem to have a midas touch when it comes to cooking. So, tonight's dinner turned out to be absolutely delicious and fluffy and moist despite Betty Crocker being a lying *expurgated*. Also, since all through the holidays I have yet to have Pumpkin Pie, we grabbed one and I shoved it in the oven. It's cooling now, but we're looking forward to it.

In summation, the Quiche was good. Also, Betty Crocker can die in a fire. Goodnight everybody, and stay safe out there.

Anybody have any quiche recipes that they especially like?
  • well, *I'm* the only one who didn't like egg, so well, yeah.

    Glad to see you attempting to cook though.
    • Hey, I was trying not to name names! But yeah, I think I am more willing to eat when I cook the food in question. Now all I need to do is get a list of foods that I want to cook, and I'll be golden.

      You going to be home on Thursday? I can stop by and grab the rest of my stuff if you are. If not, no big deal; we can figure out another day.
  • I've only tried quiche once before. It was during the holidays a few years ago at some distant relative's house... they made it especially for me with spinach because I'm vegetarian and I guess they never had a vegetarian eat with them before. Well, it tasted really bad. I'm afraid to try quiche again. :) I'm glad you're pleased with how yours turned out, despite the deceptions of Ms. Crocker!!
    • Man, this would be so much easier if you weren't vegetarian. I'd just tell you to try the Quiche Lorraine, because bacon is delicious. Unfortunately, that is not an option, and I get to figure out some alternative.

      As a rule, I dislike spinach when it is cooked with other things, as I find it gets very bitter. One could possibly add asparagus or broccoli, or some other sweet vegetable. Not carrots, though, as I don't think they would be able to cook fully in the short time that the quiche cooks.

      Next time I make quiche I will experiment to find a good vegetarian alternative to bacon.
      • I think you're right about spinach! Coming up with a good vegetarian version sounds like a fun cooking challenge for you. :) Be sure to let me know if you find success!
