Easy Vegetable Quiche

Minoo demonstrated an Easy Vegetable Quiche recipe in the Gilmore Park Church community kitchen. Quiche is a pie which uses egg as binder to hold things together. Quiche is great for picnic or school/work lunch as it is very convenient to carry them around and it can be eaten cold like pizza.

      Hey Pamela:
      Actually … it is such a chore changing the “Featured Articles” on the template. So, I had planned to change the articles only once a month (with a change of the template color of the site). But I got a tip though … you might want to check out this page on chowtimes that lists the most popular articles which I actually used to decide which “Featured Articles” to highlight each month. Here is the link: http://chowtimes.com/site/
      Hope this helps.
      Ben
