My favorite time of year has arrived. Spring! I have to say, nothing gets me more excited in the kitchen.
Even though I’m running around like a maniac at the moment with last minute wedding distractions, I’ve already tried to take full advantage of it as much as possible. We’ve been cooking asparagus several times a week now, and I’m officially in ‘asparagus recipe’ mode. You’ve been forewarned.
Last year, I could have shared a million more recipes with you all, but I ended up sticking with this springtime asparagus soup (still one of my favorites!) and an asparagus mimosa, which let’s face it, received one of the best reactions on the blog ever, and totally prompted this ridiculous April Fool’s joke (which people still believed?!).
Of course, since my love for asparagus has no bounds, I was torn on what type of recipe I should share first, but ultimately decided on quiche. A fun, seemingly fancy little quiche that can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. What’s more versatile than that? You could even serve it this Easter weekend, if you so desire.
What are your guys’ feelings on quiche? Yay? Nay?
I’m personally a huge fan, but have to admit, I tend to forget about quiche. A lot. Confession? This is the first quiche I’ve made since culinary school. That is ridiculous and embarrassing, and that’s pretty much all I have to say about that. I think I overdosed on quiche, and pretty much all traditional French food during those six months, but I really do love the stuff.
It gives you an excuse to bust out the rolling pin, use a fancy rectangular tart pan (I get excited about the most random things), and eat quite a bit of cheese. Oh yes.
