Easy Vegetarian Quiche

Yes, I *can* make pastry. Really. But it’s so fiddly and time consuming. The clean-up afterwards involves scraping vast amounts of flour off kitchen surfaces. Ain’t no one got time for that! I love to simplify cooking, so I buy frozen pie crusts and cut my work in half. Literally, this recipe takes a few minutes […]

I had the pleasure of getting this e-mail yesterday: “Hey Cat! I’m wondering what’s the best type of vanilla to use for baking. I took a look at the store and there was artificial vanilla, pure vanilla, artificial vanilla with a percentage of pure, and some other types. Help!” So, in addition to answering her […]

Caught in a Cooking Rut?

Chances are, once in a while you have absolutely no idea what to make for dinner! It’s often difficult with the stresses of everyday life, the busyness of work and family and the general “stuff” we all have to deal with, to come up with new and creative ideas for meal time. Sometimes, it seems […]
