Spinach and Feta Quiche

This is a recipe I make very frequently, it’s such an easy meal, and so delicious.  This time I varied the quiche by using a puff pastry crust instead of a regular pie crust and was pleased with the results.

  1. [...] again, and challenge myself to more tasty meals. This time, I think I want to prepare this tasty spinach feta quiche (can you tell how much I enjoyed the damn feta?). This is yet another one of Nikki’s famous [...]


  2. Hi Nikki, I jumped online to find a recipe to rescue the sad, wilitng week -old spinach that’s lurking in the bottom of my fridge and found your s ‘n feta pie. will try it tonight. thanks!
    I admire your honesty in talking about your depression.I’ve fought that battle too, thought it’s been better lately. I think you learn coping skills the older you get. (33 this yr. arrghhh!) I hope you have lots of sunny days to balance out the bleak ones.

    I couldn’t help but feel sad when i read about you nosy neighbour. I visualized some sad, lonely old woman looking in on your family and friends eating, drinking and being merry. She probably has no family close by and secretly wants to belong to yours. Telling you that you are getting fatter could be her way of trying to say “you’re looking healthy and well” like a jewish mother-in-law would (talking from experience here! “eat, eat you’re too thin!!”) .
    Why don’t you try to befriend her? she might snoop less if you had a cup of tea together now and then, and shared your life a little with her.
    we can always learn things about ourselves from difficult people and “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!”
    happy days! Fleur


Talk to me, baby!
