Wine Soaked Mushrooms
I really liked this recipe, although I did alter it by adding shallots, using cremini Mushrooms and reducing the amount of wine a bit. The thyme added a very nice flavor. I actually prepared this for a vegetarian meal and everyone really enjoyed them.

Clark's Quiche
This is my FAVORITE quiche recipe by far. I make it often and I modify the recipe with the ingredients that I have on hand. The last one I made with only vegetables for Lent so I upped the spice and added a bit of cayenne to give it a kick. I could eat this every day if it wasn't so caloric, lol.

French Leek Pie
Very tasty recipe. I would give it 5 stars for taste but as other reviewers mentioned, my pie never set up when even slightly warm. I believe that that can be easily fixed with a tablespoon of butter or a small quantity of a blonde roux added. I also used the entire leek even most of the green I just started sauteing them a bit earlier than I did the whites which caused them to lend the pie a full rich flavor. I will DEFINITELY make this again with just that small change.
