   NotaBene posted on Main Page The Lobby  Mei Dei, you asked me for my quiche recipe.

I have to admit that I buy the pastry, it comes in a box and it has two round pastries.

To bake the pastry, preheat the oven to 350°F. Use the bought pastry. Press into the angles and corners and prick all over with a fork.

Line with paper or foil and beans and bake in preheated oven for 10 min. Remove the paper and beans and prepare the filling. (I keep the beans for future quiches ).

Quiche Filling (enough for a 20-22 cm quiche serving 4-6, or triple quantity if making a large rectangular tart ).

3 eggs
Salt, pepper, nutmeg
½ cup of liquids: - double cream
- natural yogurt
- sourcream
- leftover sauce
- milk

100 grs. or 4 ounces solids:- grated or sliced cheese
- cubed ham or bacon
- smoked salmon, trout or mackerel
- cooked diced broccoli, spinach
- fresh, frozen or tinned shellfish
- buttered leeks, onions or endives
- fried eggplant
- fresh, frozen or tinned asparagus or artichokes
- strips of grilled, peeled peppers (any color )
- peeled, diced sautéd tomatoes and olives

2-3 Tbsps. Fresh chopped herbs to match your filling.

50 grs. grated Parmesan (optional )

Blend, process or whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg and chosen liquid(s ). Stir in prepared solids and herbs and taste for seasoning.

Pour into the pre-baked pastry shell. Sprinkle on optional cheese and bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and nicely risen.

Quiches can be served hot, tepid or cold. Raw pastry or the pre-baked crusts can be frozen and so could the fully baked quiche. The fillings can be prepared 1 or 2 days ahead and refrigerated.

For the chard quiche I steam the chard leaves, fry an onion in olive oil, add the chopped onions and then the rest of the ingredients, eggs and one of the liquids.

I also like the corn quiche, you can use fresh corn (boiled ) or can corn. Or you can use any leftovers. The leek quiche is also very nice.

Hope you like this recipe Mei Dei

   NotaBene  It is not clear in my recipe but you choose one of the liquids and one of the solids for the quiche. You can use anything, and mix vegetables if you like.

I once made a ham and cheese quiche and on top I put small slices of tomato. It was delicious.

Also, it should have been posted on Recipes.

   NotaBene posted on Main Page The Lobby  This is a message for Mrs. Cow.

I just finished reading death by Cashmere by Sally Goldenbaum. You were very kind to recommend me this author. I am very sorry you do not post in The Connection anymore. You were one of the first Ldotters to post pictures of your beautiful quilts. Now we have a CRAFTS Wall and we need you there. I would love to see pictures of the beautiful multicolor socks and the nice things you knitted for your grandchildren.

It will also be nice to hear from Yotty and Nu, there are new people in The Connection but it would be very wonderful if we can hear from the Ldotters from the old times.

Please come back Mrs. Cow, Yotty and Nu, we would love to hear the news from the Barn.

   NotaBene posted on Health & Diet  Last year my blood glucose was 122. I read in the connection that cinnamon lowers your sugar. I follow the adviece of an Ldotter. This year my blood glucose is 102!

I cannot remember who posted this but THANK YOU. My doctor is very happy and so am I. The connection is great.

   BirdsNest  Doesn't matter who mentioned it, it works. My diabetes doc told me about it a couple of years ago.If you will notice, they keep changing the number for pre-diabetes. A couple of years ago it was 120, now they want your sugar under 100. Mine was 108 this morning but after 2 hrs in the garden it was 74 , then I ate my PB/Banana sandwich. Now back out to the garden.

   MeiDei  I don't have a blood sugar problem but heard about cinnamon years ago. I usually add a few good dashes of it on top of coffee in the basket before turning on the coffee maker. Tasty.

   Balogreene  Me too MeiDei, a touch of cinnamon, and 6 teaspoons of Benefiber. I get a lot of goodness out of a pot of coffee. I also mix cinnamon in locally grown honey, and take a tablespoon (like the one you use to stir your coffee ) every day. Helps digestion, and allergies.

   Alice  That's great news how well it works for you, Notabene! I looked into this some.

It turns out there are 2 kinds of cinnamon, and what we get for seasoning is almost always the cassia type, which comes from eastern Asia and which I love to use as a spice. The other originated in Ceylon / Sri Lanka and is named Cinnamomum zeylanicum or Cinnamomum verum.

We have to be cautious about the amount of cassia cinnamon we take, because it contains coumarin which can cause liver problems in some people or maybe a boatload hurts anyone's liver; try an internet search on 'coumarin in cinnamon' if curious about this.

So if we are going to use a lot of extra cinnamon to reduce blood sugar, it looks like we should go with the Cinnamomum zeylanicum. I priced it recently at the health food store -- about $11 for 4 ounces if I remember right. Way more than the cassia/regular grocery type, but if someone is already on diabetes meds, their liver may be somewhat stressed from that already. For what it's worth, the NIH study I ran across while looking for the info was on rats and used the 'Ceylon' cinnamon ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles
/PMC3326760/
)

   NotaBene  Thank you Alice for your post. I am taking the Cassia cinnamon, did not know there were two types. I looked in Amazon and found also the Ceylon one which I will use in future. I am not diabetic but the doctor was a little concerned that my sugar was too high. As BirdsNest posted above the number for pre-diabetes was lowered and now doctors want you to be under 100.

   Fireball27  I love the booties! So colorful and cute. Eprib, if you can make these, why not make some and give them to the Foster Kids program? They have a commercial that says "not everyone can be a Foster Parent, but everyone can help a Foster Kid". My wife and I don't have any grandkids either, but we buy some kids clothes and donate it to the Foster Program. Some child will love whatever you make. They will know it comes from your heart.

   NotaBene posted on Suggested Reading  Thank you Mrs. Cow for recommending me the books of Anne Canadeo. I just finished "While my pretty one knits". It was a lot of fun and made want to get my needles and start knitting.

We would like to see your finished socks in the Craft wall. Many talented Ldotters showing their different crafts. It will be great having you there.

   Gerty  Is there a special name for that lovely type of crochet, Miss Nota? I remember seeing patterns for this sort of art but nothing else.

Just lovely and so appropriate!

BTW I also cannot see even 1 missed stitch! :- )

   NotaBene  I do not know Gerty if it has a special name. I saw a curtain like this in a house in Spain about 35 years ago. I took a photo and asked my aunt to teach me how to do this. She was very good at knitting and crocheting. We sat together and she taught me. It is fun to knit crochet. I used to do a lot of it but now I do more knitting.

   HopeandGlory  Hello Gerty and NotaBene . . . I'm pretty sure this style of crocheting is called "Filet Crochet." . . . It's beautiful and fun and fast to do.

   NotaBene  Hope, now that you mention it I think I heard "File Crochet" before. It is a lot of fun to crochet. I made one exactly the same for this window before, I washed it in the washing machine and it was destroyed so I made a second one for my window. I also made a third one for my friend because she liked it very much.

   NotaBene posted on Crafts  Mrs. Cow, did you finish your multicolor socks? We would love to see them.

I am working on another pink cardigan like the one I posted below. Another baby girl that will be born next month. When I am done with the presents I can knit for the grandkids again.
