My first Quiche Lorraine. I told Dan what I was making and he said "huh?" I told him it was bacon and egg pie and he was sold. The recipe comes from a big pastry cookbook I found at Borders:
And here is Lorraine!! :)
Using my new quiche pan I bought. Having never used one before, I didn't know the bottom came out to help release it from the pan. Final product:
I also made these cupcakes to take to my office for my birthday. I don't like much of anything with pumpkin, but thought I would give these Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes a try. They are from the November 2009 issue of Rachael Ray Magazine. They turned out very pretty and I actually ate one and liked it! The office rejoiced and said my birthday was now once a week. Something tells me they just want more baked goods.
I still haven't posted pictures of my stew and soup-making escapades! Sorry!
Thanksgiving is at my house this year! Looking forward to trying out some new recipes and maybe modifying some old favorites.
I got two new cookbooks for my birthday too! Dan got me the classic Julia Child: Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
