Delicious, though I adjusted for my taste. I added Worcestershire to give a bit of umami and used a stick blender as I did not have a regular blender. Mine also benefitted from an additional teaspoon of sugar and more vinegar. I keep it in a pitcher in the fridge so it's easy to pour from. Add olive oil & a dab of sour cream to increase the wow factor for guests but I think it's delicious without those serving additions!

Chef John's Quiche Lorraine
I tried this twice today as a dry run for our Bastille Day celebration. I used my grandmother's pie crust recipe which is delicious, but I did not have a deep dish pie plate so I used a springform pan. First time it seemed like I did something wrong with the pie crust as it was mushy on the bottom. Second time the crust was better but did not cook thoroughly on the bottom, which I think might be a result of the wonderful custardy-light filling. I think this is a fantastic recipe using a deep dish pie crust pan, but I need to tweak it when using a springform pan, which I thought gave it a café-like appearance. All in all, I will always use this recipe as a go-to for a light, fluffy quiche. Husband is French and thinks this is fantastic.

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad
I used a whole chicken that I inadvertently overcooked (ALWAYS set the timer). I used tarragon instead of dill, celery instead of onions, and sunflower seeds instead of pecans (as those were the ingredients I had). I did use the lime juice and thought it added a wonderful component to the dish. Rave reviews from all who tried it, so I will probably continue making it this way. If I hadn’t found this recipe, I would have never thought to put dried cranberries in chicken salad – simply delicious!
