quiche makes for an easy entertaining meal for anytime of the day really. it can be made two days ahead of time, then warmed in the oven when guests arrive. a classic quiche lorraine is adorned with slab bacon which compliments the creaminess of the egg custard quite nicely. pair it with a beautiful salad of mixed greens gathered from your local farmers market. maybe even grab a bottle of white wine. you’re good to go.
marthastewart.com has a super easy recipe for quiche lorraine which highlights bacon as the classic main ingredient.
who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie? even the not-so-great chocolate chip cookies are edible due to the saving grace quality that chocolate chips possess. bittersweet chocolate chips, in my opinion, make for the best cookie. and a little salt added to the recipe, makes them sing. but, there are tons of other uses for chocolate chips. below is a quick and easy recipe idea.
recipe idea : you can quickly melt 16 ounces of chocolate chips down by placing them in a metal or glass mixing bowl that fits over a pot with about 2 inches of water in the pot (essentially a double boiler). on low to medium heat, the chocolate will begin to melt. stir frequently. once melted, toss in 1-1/2 cups toasted nuts and 1/2 cup dried fruit. then spoon out little drops and sit on counter to set the chocolate. store at room temperature.

today is butterscotch brownie day !
our take on a butterscotch brownie is this coconut butterscotch blondie which is full of toasted coconut and chocolate chips. the combination of brown sugar and butter lend to the deep flavor reminiscent of old fashioned butterscotch candies.
recipe idea: from a pint of quality coffee flavored ice cream (or vanilla bean), scoop 4 individual servings into shallow bowls. using 1 package of butterscotch*s coconut butterscotch blondies, dice bars into small pieces and top ice cream. additional toasted coconut and freshly unsweetened whipped cream takes it over the top. enjoy!
