recipe: apple puffed pancake dish

Have you every tried the Whole Foods buffet’s Creme Brulee French Toast?  

Well, that is what this dish tastes like, with a cinnamon-apple twist.

This is my favorite breakfast. 

It is easy and so, so good.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees, put your 9×12 dish in (or two smaller pans) with one stick of butter to melt.

After the butter melts, add 2-4 thinly sliced apples.


Mix in a bowl:

      • 1 1/2 cups milk
      • 6 eggs
      • 1 tsp vanilla
      • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
      • 1/2 tsp salt
      • 1 cup flour (we use a gluten free mix version)
      • 3 tablespoons sugar


Pour the contents of bowl on top of the apples and butter and bake for 18-22 minutes.


Enjoy hot out of the oven with syrup or (more!) butter!

Let me know what you think!  This recipe is worth making every Saturday morning!


This is the best quiche of your life.

I love quiche.  I am a “I like eggs with a lot of extras” type of girl.  I don’t like over easy or even plain scrambled.  But I love eggs if there is a lot of cheese and a nice vegetable involved.  I make frittatas and quiches quite a bit, thanks to my “I’ll have 3 to 4 eggs a day, every day” husband.  And thankfully, and healthfully, my son loves eggs too.

But my life changed the day I had my friend’s mother-in-law’s quiche.  I went over for a nice sit-down brunch and took a bite and I will never be the same.  This quiche is that good.  I told her so too, and I tend to be a bit dramatic, so maybe she didn’t believe me when I said that this was the best thing I’d ever tasted.  But I was serious.

And sweet Edie gave me her grandmother’s recipe.  And I am here to share it with you.  Go to the store now and buy these ingredients and make this quiche!

**Hint: Cottage cheese is the secret.



  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tub of 16 oz cottage cheese (or 24 oz if you want it a bit goo-ey-er)
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 to whole bag of shredded cheddar cheese (or try others)
  • other ingredients of your choice: broccoli, spinach, peppers, meat


  1. Turn oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook broccoli slightly. (Or use other toppings: the above picture is of a non-cooked cut red pepper and ham)
  3. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a big bowl.
  4. Put in a pie crust
  5. Cook for 60 minutes. (Check with a fork for more or less time.)
  6. Try not to eat it all by yourself.

Here is the sweet recipe she copied for me.


I am not including a recipe for a delicious crust, but here is the Perfect Crust by The New York Times.  Of course lots of butter (or lard! or palm oil, which I am trying next) should be involved.  I have to confess that, having a gluten-free son, I bought the store-made crust for the above recipe.  I am guilty of the convenience!  However, having flour run wild in my kitchen to make a pie crust is not a great situation for my boy (he will break out in hives upon contact with flour).  But!  That is no excuse.  Hydrogenated, partially-hydrogenated, any soybean or canola or sunflower, etc, etc oils will kill you. No joke.  Don’t do it.

Happy Eating,
