Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
This is a great basic quiche recipe. Like another reviewer, I used the single crust recipe available on this site for my crust: 1 1/4 cup AP flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/3 cup shortening and about 5 tablespoons water. I also pre-baked the crust for about 5 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients in. For my ingredients, I definitely didn't use any butter, (1/2 would have been way too much anyway) but I sauteed some onion and garlic in olive oil and then added about 3 cups fresh spinach, 5 fresh mushrooms sliced, and 1/4 cup diced red pepper. I let these ingredients saute until the spinach was fully wilted. Then I added 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese at the last minute and poured into the pastry shell followed by the egg mixture. I added the additional cheese as directed. This is a great way to get rid of any leftover ingredients you have in your fridge at the end of the week. I will make it again!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
I bake a lot of cheesecakes and I have to say this recipe is simply the best! I'm going to use it as a base now for all my cheesecake recipes. To try a variation -- split the recipe in half (make two smaller batches) and add 4 squares of melted baker's chocolate to one of the batches. Pour the chocolate batch in first and then the vanilla one on top and swirl gently with a knife. I make this with an oreo crust. It's fabulous! Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature to prevent lumps. Next time I will follow other's advice and bake at 325* (mine burned ever so slightly). I love this recipe and so does everyone who eats it!
