Some people have asked me how I find time to do a recipe blog. I tell them it really takes me no time at all. I am cooking for the family anyway, so I just take that opportunity to be creative.
I have to say that it does frustrate the great husband sometimes. I will prepare his plate, but he can’t touch it until I have made the food pose and go the just the right shot. This usually takes me a few minutes, so he ends up having a cooled off meal. I say this is a small price to pay for a happy wife.
I take time to write when Quinn is sleeping or watching her favorite show. The longest part of the process is writing down the recipe. The most difficult part of keeping this blog is remaining creative.
There will be times I have posts written, but no recipe because I haven’t been inspired by any foods. This usually happens in the winter.
Then there are times when I have recipes stacked up, but I cannot think of a single thing to write about. Yes, I could possible just post the recipe but I think that people visit food blogs for various reasons. Some like the pictures, some like the recipes, and some like the stories. This reason along makes it important to contain all of the components in every post.
I also save time because I seem to never proofread my post before I publish it. But if you are a regular reader, you probably have already picked that up. I spell check, that is about it. And let’s be honest, I don’t do it to save time. It is an important step that I have never made habit of. I never it did it in school either. At least I am not getting graded anymore.
Here is a recipe that is quick and easy. A fantastic way to impress your company when they stay over.
Goat Cheese and Vegetable Quiche
1 pie crust in a pie pan
3 sweet peppers, sliced
1/2 c sliced mushrooms
5 stalks of asparagus, chopped
1/4 c of goat cheese
3 medium shallots, sliced
1 c milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
Preheat oven to 375F. Place all of the vegetables in the pie crust. Crumble goat cheese over vegetables.
In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Pour egg mixture into pie shell.
Place in oven for 35 minutes or until fully cooked. You can check this by shaking the tin. If the middle is still giggly, then it is not done yet.
