Best and Simplest Ham and Cheese Quiche

Some things are just IT for me, and quiche is one of those things.

I reminds me of my mom cooking for me on cold blistery days.

It makes me feel loved, special and fancy all in one. When I take a bite, the wafts of smells and scents tantalize my every sense, and yet I know that every delicate crumb that touches my lips is nourishing my soul and I feel not an ounce of guilt when I’m eating it.

Eaten with a bowl of soup, a salad on the side, or all on its own, it’s just one of those things that helps me to STOP. BREATHE. and ENJOY.

Thats one amazing food.

I imagine that my children might feel the same way, because although they are celestial angels in human bodies ;/ , they can get a bit testy around lunch time. All the critiques and growling comes out and they will give me an earful if they are dissapointed with what is being served.

However, I think everything I serve is amazing.

And even if it isn’t, I still think it’s amazing.


It’s really one of those dishes that is simple comfort food. Loved and cherished by all. And never shall you meet a child (A Woo Child anyway) who will turn up their noise at this delectable meal.
