Broccoli, Ham & Cheese Quiche

I do love me some quiche, how about you? It’s been a long time since I’ve made Quiche. I’ve been all about the Frittatas lately. I think I had just forgotten how good Quiche can be, and then we made this Broccoli, Ham & Cheese Quiche. I gotta say it really hit the spot.

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie

Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie. A bit of work but this is HEAVEN!!

Tomato Pie’s been on my bucket list for a while! I know – strange, right? Well, maybe not if you have a ton of tomatoes, and maybe not if you’re from the South. Or maybe not if you watch Paula Dean. But this isn’t quite that tomato pie. This is a Cheesy Tomato & Vidalia Pie, and you’ll want to serve it for lunch or dinner, maybe with a simple green salad.

My Grandmother’s Pie Crust

This is an easy pie crust - has vinegar AND an egg! So old, it originally calls for lard, but butter or shortening both work fine.

I might have to clarify on this recipe: This is just ONE of my Grandmother’s pie crusts. She was a great baker of pies. People fought over her pies. Seriously. I chose this very old-fashioned crust for my Sour Cream Raisin Pie because I believe both¬†to be from around the same era. It’s delish, a bit like a shortbread and quite a bit different from the recipes I’ve seen or used.
