I love a good quiche…who doesn’t? I love them even more when I don’t have to make the pastry dough. Go out and buy that stuff! I get mine at Heinen’s because they have such a great selection!

Now that we are headed into Fall, I tend to start cooking with sweet potatoes and lovely seasonal gourds! I also love kale, and the best way I’ve found to cook it is flash boiled and then baked. This quiche has a ton of goodies inside and I can’t wait for you to try it!
