Today was a sad day. Today was the day I confirmed that my husband does not really like quiche, and my children might not either (I say might because I refuse to believe any toddler has a true dislike of a food until they have rejected it multiple times). I am also sad because this means I ate my serving as well as both of my children’s. (Insert appropriate horrified face).
Seriously, I have no idea what is up with the taste buds of my family because this was SO GOOD. Like moan with each bite good. Unfortunately I think it may be moan with every bite bad for you too. But since I don’t usually make quiche—actually this is my first time ever making it and if only I eat it, it might be my last—I am not going to worry about it.
I finally remembered to sign up for Taste & Create—a monthly blogging event where you are partnered with another blog and required to make anything off of that person’s blog. By total coincidence—I doubt that Nicole, the Taste & Create creator/moderator, knows that I am from Columbus or that I live only 2 hours from Columbus—I was paired with Columbus Foodie (whose blog has disappeared from the internet as of 2018). Her blog is a hodgepodge of recipes, reviews of restaurants in Columbus, and just general foodie thoughts. I had fun reading it—it was weird though, I am so used to never recognizing anything on people’s blogs (like restaurants in NYC or farmers’ markets in CA, etc), it was kinda strange to actually be familiar with where someone is writing about for once! Go check it out for yourself!
The recipe for her Leek & Goat Cheese Quiche is unfortunately no longer linkable as Columbus Foodie seems to have disappeared. If you are a member of Cook’s Illustrated you might find the recipe here. Originally adapted from Cook’s Illustrated, I made very few changes, namely the inclusion of some local green garlic at the sautéing of the leeks stage. I also used 5.5 oz of goat cheese, rather than 4, because that is the size package it came in and since we love goat cheese I figured it wouldn’t hurt!
