Fun fact about me:  One of the first things that I learned how to make was quiche.  What I love about quiche is the base concept, which is quite simple: eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper.  Then, whip it up, pour mixture into a pie crust, and you’re good to go.  What makes a good quiche stand out are the freshness of eggs and the crust.  There are several variations to quiche.

On this particular day, I decided to make a quiche using Handsome Brook Farm Eggs, spinach, ham, mushroom, bacon, and cheese.  I chose Handsome Brook Farm Eggs because they are USDA certified organic and pasture-raised.  When I am cooking for my family, I want to make sure that I use the freshest ingredients.  This brand’s eggs have no pesticides, no hormones, no GMOs, and no antibiotics.  A Handsome Brook Farm egg has the most beautifully colored yolks of a rich golden’y-orange color.
