TIP OF THE WEEK
THE PERFECT QUICHE
A Paper towel dipped in vinegar will wipe greasy smudges off glass oven doors, refrigerators or switch plates.
Lightly saute veggies and blanch fresh greens in order to eliminate moisture in the filling.
Use good, fresh ingredients-especially the eggs.
Par-bake the crust first.
Use a mix of heavy and light ingredients and layer according to density.
Use a fine serrated knife to carefully cut wedges so edge of crust doesn't break.
