Apple Crisp II
That's gooooooood ... I made few changes to boost the flavor. I used 5 apples, 1 plum peeled & cut to quarters. I used 1/2 white sugar & 1/2 sugar cane molasses (I didn't have brown sugar) I added 1/4 tsp nutmeg. substituted water for orange juice. added orange zest to the filling. for the crisp, i used 2/3s oat to 1/3 flour & I used cubes of butter (no melting). I served with lite vanilla ice cream & God ... that was goooood!

Spinach Quiche
This is not a bad recipe ... But; I wouldn't be wanting to do it again. I'm not sure I liked the flavors. It really baked fine. It raised perfectly. I looked at many reviews to ensure I do this right. I made my crust fm scratch 1 day in advance, used 11inch round pan, put in oven for 25min before i add filling. Mixed all ingredients together. I used 1 tbs olive oil instead of 1/2 cup butter, 1 clove garlic only. fresh mushroom, fresh spinach, double cream instead of milk, worked out the filling measurement to fit the pan size. But unfortunately, the taste was bland!

Fava Bean Breakfast Spread
This is a very good recipe. But; feva beans in general is a very forgiving dish in Egypt. You can eat it individually with just some spices. Combine it with vegetables, Combine it with eggs (which is yummy), melting butter (which traditionally requires the dish to be beans, butter, salt & pepper only!) OR the famous Egyptian fava beans with linen seed oil (which is a bit chili if you're not used to it)! You can also serve it cold or hot. Just do diff alterations until you reach your desired preference!
