Eggs have had a bad rap in the past but they're actually very nutritious and inexpensive. Early in my married life, quiche was all the rage and especially in Boulder, Colorado, where Bennigan's paired it up with fresh cantalope. The book Real Men Don't Eat Quiche had come out and may have been a Best Seller. When we moved up to Black Hawk, Colorado, our landlady had her own version of quiche and these are the exact directions she gave me and that I've been using ever since. Thanks, Dixie.
prepare or buy one pie crust and line a quiche dish or pie plate
Cut meat into bite size chunks (choose ham, bacon, or turkey)
Chop veggies (choose broccoli, cauliflower, etc.)
Shred cheese (cheddar, Swiss, etc.)
Put a handful of each into prepared dish to desired amount
then cover with the following mixture:
4 or 5 eggs, beaten
about a cup of half & half
Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-45 minute. Enjoy!
Back then I loved Janet Daily and spent my time researching the local "Indians" with books from the Gilpin County Library with dreams of someday writing western romances. Today I have nine books published. Here's my latest:
Hidden secrets could tear them apart as fast as their passion drove them together
On the Moray coast in Scotland…
Ethne’s genuine and caring nature makes her invaluable to her brother as his son’s caretaker, but he and his wife treat her as little more than their servant. When she learns their tribal leader would use her chaste status for his own purposes, Ethne plans to escape and reluctantly accepts the help of Lachlann—a handsome pilgrim she only just met at the local faire.
Despite her independent spirit, Ethne feels drawn to Lachlann. Her instincts say his intentions are honorable, but can she trust him with her heart?
Raised by his godfather with few clues to his family’s past, Lachlann values his freedom and the brotherhood of his highlander kin. Disguised as a pilgrim on a mission for the priory, he encounters Ethne, a warm, intelligent maiden whose courage in the face of a loveless marriage awakens an intense need to protect her.
Unfortunately, Ethne is one of the very people he must deceive to explore the cave system containing clues to the lost treasure he seeks. But he cannot abandon her to an uncertain fate—or deny the simmering tension between them.
With religious prejudice running high and both of them facing tests of loyalty, Lachlann and Ethne may realize the only way to fight for their futures is to surrender... to each other.
