spinach, cheese and tomato quiche

Quiche… I’m not always a fan. I was always given the store-bought type, which had a funny texture… I didn’t care for it much (sorry, mum). I don’t think I’ve actually had quiche for about 10 years. But when I saw this recipe on Quinn’s Baking Diary my mouth drooled.

It was the tomatoes. Definately. I love a tomato (in fact, I tried “sundream” tomatoes today… amazing). but the whole thing is totally easy to make and has a lot of flavour. Best eaten straight from the oven of course!!

garden pizza

I’ve never made pizza from scratch. And I love pizza. So when I was thinking about what to make myself for dinner, I decided to have a go. And it’s easy! There’s no reason anyone should buy a ready made one at all. This recipe can obviously be changed toppings-wise, so add your favourite ingredients. This Garden Pizza is made with my favourite pizza toppings.

Take note, the pizza dough recipe makes more than enough, but can be stores in the fridge until you need it. Just take it out and let it come to room temperature when you need it.

mixed vegetable bake

So I don’t want to cook cupcakes all the time because of many reasons. But mostly because I always end up eating a large majority of the batch as my boyfriend doesn’t really like cakes! This does not work out well for me as i scoff them all in two seconds.

I don’t often cook meals. I’m more comfortable baking: cakes, muffins, cookies, the lot. But sometimes I can be found cooking “real” food. Oh, I’m a vegetarian. So it’s unlikely to find meat in the food I cook. And this recipe concerned me. Would it be tasty? Or would it be boring? I had found it in a food magazine (I cannot remember which, I’d written it down two years ago and never tried it) so hadn’t got any reviews. But I adapted it; missed bits out, added bits in…

It was a surprisingly tasty vegetarian dish. I enjoyed it, and had it two days in a row. It would be interesting to have it with pasta too and make a pasta bake out of it (add the pasta in when you put everything in the casserole dish and perhaps extend the cooking time until the pasta is done), or even boil some rice to have along side it. It’s up to you. I had it with a salad, and really enjoyed it.
