Quiche by Joy

A new take on a good recipe!
About this Cook
Never been a big foodie till recently, when I learned how much farming and the grocery industry effects our culture and the environment. I started with the notion of a healthy diet and now seek to enlighten other's to the benifits of home gardening.
My favorite things to cook
Vegitable Stir-Frys, Poached Fish or Meat, Big Salads and Sushi….but my achilies heal is Pasta!
My cooking triumphs
Mushroom Soup or Sushi (both long and difficult to prepare)
My cooking tragedies
Spending time and money to make a special fish dinner for friends, only to find out they all hated fish! (they all loved my home-made cheese cake, which was a bitter-sweet triumph)

Roasted Chicken Broth
Yes, this was good and enjoyable to make, as I love to cook, but I can't help but think it was a waste of time, money and most of all electricity. Even when using a pre-baked chicken for the broth, it calls for 3 hours of simmering. That's 3 hours of constant gas-fire stove, doing nothing to help my environmental footprint.. When weighing the cost benifits….why not just purchase a few boxes of Swanson Chicken Broth?? That's NOT a rhetorical question….

Chef John's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
delicious recipe but time consuming. Last time I poached chicken breast pieces and it worked great!

Eggplant Parmesan II
I just made this for my parents, we three ate it for dinner. They raved about it! Not sure if they were being overly polite but they wouldn't have said it if they didn't at least enjoy the recipe. I loved the warm cheesyness and the contrast between the crunch and softness of the eggplant. Not sure if i cooked it too long because I anticiapated it being softer (like cooked broccoli.) Despite my qualms I would definately make this again and it will be a go-to veggitarian meal.
