Quiche Success

Hellllllllo Readers!!!   Happy Tasty Tursday!    How I've missed you!    I'm sorry that I haven't written in a while.  Between work and Portuguese class (practicing my French too) and working out and and the holidays things got crazy busy and I felt like I had less time than I would have liked for trying new recipes but instead just stuck to some old favorites.   My hope for you is that apart from new ideas that you can find some quick east recipes here that you can use when ife gets hectic.   

Enter these adorable mini quiche which I am planning to make for book club at the end of the month.

I found the recipe on the kraftrecipes.com website when I searched for turkey bacon.   The recipe calls for spinach but I ran out so I didn't include it and also used one less slice of turkey bacon.   Next time I will likely include the spinach and would cut down the turkey bacon or even mushrooms.   

I should also note that per frost bite food and wiki how quiche can be frozen which is what I've done with my leftovers.   Can't wait to have them again one morning for a special treat.

Fall Favorites

Helllllllllo readers!  Happy Autumn!   I don't know about you but every year I initially resist embracing the fall...I just enjoy summer so much.  But time and time again, I fall in love with fall...the changing leaves, the cooler (but still warm weather), the fashion (boots!), the flavors (pumpkin, butternut squash)...it's a wonderful time of year.  Plus, I always tend to feel like fall feels shorter because once it's December everyone is sort of in winter mode.

Anyway, I wanted to share to do a little round up of recipes that are perfect for fall:





Chocolate Pecan Pie


Buffalo Flavor



(I know - the quinoa looks a little weird...but it tastes great).

Empire Coffee & Tea Co, Inc.: A Review

Coffee for French press and Black Masala Chai Chocolate
French Press and a favorite mug

I had been to Empire Coffee & Tea Co. before for a fancy coffee drink (which was good) but only recently started buying their coarse ground coffee for the French press, which they roast and ground themselves.   I've been drinking it at the office instead of the Flavia (and also sometimes on the weekend).   So far I've tried the Hangiver Blend and Pumpkin Spice, both of which I like.    They also have good teas, cute mugs, biscottis, and premium chocolate, including the yummy black masala chai chocolate pictured above.  There is seating available as well.   I would definitely recommend this place especially for buying coffee whether you want the whole bean or want them to grind it for you.
