So today I decided that I was going to cook. Now, I’m a good cook – not to brag or anything, but I’ve learned a lot helping my mom in the kitchen since I was 10 years old, so most of my knowledge and technique comes from her. But lately, I’ve been having a lot of bad luck in the kitchen – this almost never happens to me. Like two weeks ago I tried making an upside down apple cake, a cake I’ve made at least ten times before, but I managed to mess it up somehow. Actually, I tried to make that cake twice. The first time it all went well until I had to make the sponge. So I wanted to use 8 eggs for my sponge and separated the egg whites from the yolks, I began beating them and they never rose. So in my frustration, I threw everything away and tried making the same cake a few nights later. This was a disaster from the beginning: I ruined the melted sugar twice and when the cake finally came out from the oven and it was time to flip it over it all came crumbling down – literally. I think the apples were to big and the sponge just collapsed around them when I flipped it over. Maybe when I’ll make this recipe again and if it actually comes out the way I want it to I will share it with you guys. Until then, let’s talk about what I cooked today.
The first time I discovered quiche was a revelation for me… I mean, I had eaten it before, but i had never cooked it. Until last year when I got adventurous – or so I thought. I thought I was “living on the edge”, but, in fact, quiche is so simple it blew my mind – and absolutely delicious!
So I started off with a little quiche lorraine, but I’ve mixed things up since then. I love it that you can make it with just about anything that crosses your mind, you can play with the recipe and make combinations and then enjoy your delicious result. *mmmm*
