My recipe of the day is for bacon and scallion mini quiche, which I am posting with the baking Bloggers group. Each month we get together and post on a topic which has been voted on and for this month the winner was for Tea Party recipes. If you are a blogger and would like to join in the fun, we’d love to have you post along- just join us at our Facebook Group: Baking Bloggers. Just be  sure to list your blog name, since it is a planning group and not  for fans (who can instead follow us on social media by searching for the tag  #BakingBloggers).

Rough Week (Again)

I had  hoped to either get some chocolate dipped madeleines or some type of little sponge cakes baked up for you, but a cloud passed over my week finding out about a death in the family and trying to deal with that. It’s been rough.


I didn’t think I would manage to post at all, but remembered I did have these gorgeous little quiche which I had baked up as an appie when my daughter had visited last fall and didn’t get up on the blog.

Quiche can be  pretty retro as it used to be more prevalent in the 1980’s but I still see it served at French restaurants and also a few places that serve brunch. I also used to see more Tea Rooms, but there don’t seem to be too many around here.

Tea Rooms and Daydreams

Time was, all my foodie friends dreamed of opening one. I didn’t. I’ve worked in the industry and remember the not so fun parts. I’d much rather cook at home for those I love and also share those recipes with you. I mean,  even some celebrity chefs have to push a mop at the end of  the day  so there is no way out of it even at the top. So imagine what folk like me do at the bottom!

Quiche for All Occasions?

The quiche  here are also perfect for a tea  party as part of the savories. Dainty little cakes are most  common but little things like these are also  regulars, especially since they are French. Also great for a brunch buffet or as party appetizers in the evening with  wine. Any time of day, I never saw a quiche I didn’t like!
