Now don’t go getting any ideas…
She’s just NOT that KIND of broccoli!
Silly kids…always with your minds in the gutter….sheesh! 😉
But it IS time for some lovin’…
I know, I was a total tease ending Monday’s post the way I did! But I’m sorry, there was just TOO much marvelousness to share it all! So here’s a deeper (again with the dirty minds? Please!) look into Sunday’s kitchen happenings thanks to the amazing
Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets!
I’ve been reading Meghan’s blog for some time now (Do you? because you SHOULD!). Between her witty commentary, her give-it-to-ya-how-it-is attitude, and the fact that her mind pretty much doubles as a juke box, I just can’t seem to stay away.
And her recipes?
Well why don’t I just SHOW you? 😉
I’ve been saying I was going to make her Cheddar Cauliflower Soup for MONTHS now…so a few weeks ago, I went and picked up a fresh head of cauliflower at the store. Then I proceeded to make half a dozen Cauliflower Dessert Pizzas and no telling
HOW many batches of Cauliflower Pancakes!
Um, ADD much?!
So last week, I went BACK to the store and bought ANOTHER one and proclaimed Sunday as…
SOUP DAY!…see, the bowl even says it! 😉
I gathered my ingredients…
Um yeah, how about those leeks are from the same batch I bought back when I made THESE?! Don’t worry, I peeled back the funky bits!
Holy shelf life Batman!!! 😯
I used my garbage bowl…
For something other than a hat! 😉
I played with a new seasoning mix…
Meatloaf, dip, potatoes, and MORE? Got it! 😀
Annnnd well, since I didn’t have any cheddar cheese on hand, I decided (in true Heather fashion) to make a few minor tweaks…I actually decreased the liquid a bit, omitted the flour, and used nutritional yeast in the soup which actually made it VEGAN!
But then I found THIS little guy lurking in the back of the fridge…
completely bastardized it couldn’t resist! 😉
But the fun did NOT stop there…after seeing the drool-worthy pics of her Broccoli & Cheddar Quiche that she seduced me with all week with a link to the easiest crust recipe I’ve ever seen, I figured what the heck!
Again, I had no cheddar…and with not much more to spare of the one that
mounted topped off the soup, I decided it was time for Heather to get down and dirty eggy! 😉
I mixed up my crust…
Seriously? Easy as
pie quiche! You CAN’T mess this up folks!
And then it was time to
clean out the fridge to add my well thought out combination of ingredients…
Remnants of peppers, onions, and celery from the crisper?…sure why not?
Eggs, milk, and BACON?!…you bet your sweet ass! 😉
Off to the oven and in less than an hour I had THIS:
It’s so fluffy I’m gonna diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie!!!
went limp deflated shortly after…
But at least I got a piece!
Of quiche people…QUICHE!! Where are your minds today? 😉

Oh and I’m sorry, but looks like I’m gonna have to teeeeeease you again, because even though THIS
moan-inducing delicious granola…
Inspired by Meghan’s Apple Pie Granola…is too good NOT to share, this post is already LONG enough and I’m sure I’m about to
hit a climax overdo it with the euphemisms and innuendos! 😉
So, until next time, just remember…
YOU CRACK ME UP GIRL!!! Seriously, I am here in the office with 7 people around me and I am grinning from one side to the other making a huge effort (hold your abs toght helps, believe me) not to burst.
This Quiche will happen. On the weekend or just pretty darn soon. Thank you, Miss….. (I think you need that honey. I really do. http://www.google.ch/search?q=I+am+the+Queen+of+fucking+everything&hl=de&safe=off&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=aVA4UYTmJsHZPLWQgYAE&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAQ&biw=1366&bih=615#imgrc=iUKZV-KqcAKDvM%3A%3BuPNEArzoL-Zu_M%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fimages.esellerpro.com%252F2486%252FI%252F128%252F0%252Flrgscaleu_20260840_Half%252520Moon%252520Bay_Homewares_Aprons_apron-queen-of-fucking-everything.JPG%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.kitschagogo.com%252Fapron8528-queen-of-fucking-everything-cotton-apron.html%3B1892%3B1892
Hahahahaha! Omg, I DO need that! LOVE…IT! So glad I was able to put a smile on that pretty little face of yours! Hope you’re having a great day! I’m off to bed! 😉
Sorry to jump in, but the word f*ck caught my attention…happens every time, and this might be the most amazing apron/magnet/mug set ever. Great find.
Haha, you TOTALLY need one too…only we need to make sure it comes with a matching mic…or wireless headset! 😉
that quiche looks absolutely amazing! i was waiting for the recipe since you showed a pic of it yesterday!
I don’t even know where to start…all the recipe and link love is amazing, and the quiche crust. It really is the easiest ever. I mean it’s one thing to say it, but truly it’s so simple and pretty freaking delicious. I really want a slice of your pie (not that pie, although you know I highly approve of all the double dirty talk) even with the bacon. Bacon always was my Achilles heel.
I can’t wait to see you go nuts (and another one) with the granola. Just wait until you start using melted nut butters and healthy chocolate sauce in there….I can see it now.
By the way, I totally caught your leaving on a jet plane reference and now I’m singing it.
Good luck tomorrow. I’ll be rooting for you.
I’m a new follower of your blog from this post! Your food looks amazing!
Awww I heart you. 🙂
I know, right? Is it weird that I thought the dough itself smelled like Heaven? I seriously had to stop myself from sneaking a taste! Weeeeeeeeeeirdooooooo! 😉 And hey, you could have some of my pie anytime! We could do bacon bits? They’re VEGAN! <- I've known that for months now but it still amazes me! Seriously, that batch of granola has definitely got the gears turning...you may have just created a monster! Lol
LOL! The ending, haha! I love you! I love your sense of humor, just like mine 😉
I seriously love quiche, but have never made it! I have just enjoyed it when others have, hehe!
Maybe one day I will make my own 😉
Happy Thursday! I am thinking of you tomorrow, just so you know! All will go well, treat yourself to froyo after too! xoxo <3
Haha, glad you enjoyed my ramblings! 😉
And seriously, this is only the second quiche I’ve ever made…can’t believe I don’t whip them up more often…it’s SO easy and such a great way to use up extra veggies!
I only WISH there were fro-yo shops around here that were worth their salt…but the man-friend DID just bring over some Arctic Zero! 😀
You’re freaking hilarious! And as for the quiche…yum! 🙂
Oh my goodness, not only does that quiche look amazing… but the fact that you referenced my absolute favorite line from just about any animated film ever while talking about quiche just made us best friends. Congratulations.
Haha, thanks, Jen! And yeah, I couldn’t resist! Absolutely, the cutest movie EVER!! 😀
I love you posts with the stream of consciousness. I can hear your voice reading this… And I am cracking up! Megan rocks, right?! And I want quiches. And peaches. Clean peaches though. LOL!!!
Bahahahaha omg that ad!!
And omg that quiche looks amazing!!
Hilarious! You amaze me with what you create! I haven’t made a quiche in years but this one is calling to me! Hope you have a great day!
That quiche looks oh so yummy!
Gosh this post made me hungry!! So many great recipes I want to try! I also started following “clean eats” because her food just looks amazing! Thanks for introducing me to her blog!
Aww, thank you so much Ashley! And I’m so glad I could introduce you to Meghan…she’s the best and will NEVER cease to entertain you! Lol
Now I want peach pizza.
You are right, Heather. Meghan rocks.
LOL! I love me some innuendo, b/c I have the humor of a 13 year old boy. Glad I’m not the only one! “So Fluffy!” <3 This looks awesome, and I definitely need to try this out, since I'm quickly getting sick of my sometimes 2x a day egg scrambles, but I still love eggs. (And run on sentences). Think you could sub out oat flour, or a blend for the quiche crust? I have smoked gouda with bacon that I planned to use up in some mac n' cheese for the bf this weekend, but he won't know if I use some to make this. Can't wait!
Oh man, smoked gouda and bacon? When should I be over?! I think any flour would do just fine since the recipe is so simple…I bet it would even work with gluten-free flour!
So glad I’m not the only one with an immature mind…I just can’t help myself sometimes! Lol
And hey, you might like run on sentences, but I’ve got the claim on the dot dot dot… 😉 Hahaha!
Those ads are great. Have you seen the beaver one? I think I’ve already said too much… 🙂
The recipe looks great. Thanks for sharing!
Omg, yes! And the doorknob cause me to nearly fall out of my chair! Definitely my favorite, but I tried to put the least offensive one up here just in case! Lol
WOW, this quiche looks GOOD! I would love to try making it with vegetarian “bacon” or tempeh “bacon.” Yum! 🙂
Oh yeah, that would be great! Or…even in a pinch, bacon bits! They’re actually VEGAN! Lol
Crap – I am headed to eat something now!!!! I droll every time I read your posts! 😉
That looks amazing!!! I must make it for a weekend breakfast!
That soup looks amazing. I am pretty sure the cheese and red pepper flakes make it 🙂

Meghan is just the best! Great post. Great recipes 🙂 That quiche turned out so well!
Thank you, Madison! I have to say I was impressed with it myself…this was my first crusted quiche and only the SECOND quiche I’ve ever made! And Meghan totally rocks my socks! Anytime I need a laugh, I know exactly where to go! 😀

Yum! I just mentioned this in a post:
Thanks for sharing!
Yum! this looks amazing! I’m super excited for that granola recipe too, I love eating it with greek yogurt or on top of a smoothie:) Love your blog thanks for sharing xo
You are hilarious. I just frickin’ love you. I also love the overwhelming food porn (and soft core porn-esque advertising?) in this post.
Victoria Gourmet seasonings are some of my favorites! The Tuscan Herb is to die for, her Herbes De Provence are the best I’ve tried, and I’m pretty sure if you got your hands on the Toasted Sesame you would DIE. [Keep a look out on those Marshalls/TJ Maxx shelves…]
Glad I’m not the only one who takes risks with less-than-beautiful produce. 🙂
Great…just GREAT! Now I’m kicking myself, because I KNOW I’ve seen that toasted sesame at least a handful of times! Now watch, I’ll go back and they won’t have any…it’ll be like the great Ginger Chime search of February! Lol
And I’m never scared to use the bottom-of-the-barrel produce…either that, or I’m just that cheap… 😉
