Blueberry Muffins La Posada

These blueberry muffins served on the Santa Fe Super Chief and originating from the La Posada Hotel in Winslow, Arizona are fine little muffin, light and clean tasting, although perhaps a little innocuous. There was nothing wrong with them but I kind of hope for something a little more elevated when I look for pastry recipes.

Quiche Lorraine

This is a very simple quiche recipe with bacon and Gruyere cheese. I cheated and used a pre-made frozen pie crust (for shame!) but the result was still an amazing result. I used to reckon myself a quiche master but in truth this recipe has made me realize how wrong I was. Instead of simply mixing a batch of eggs with the ingredients, this recipe only uses the egg yolks combined with 2 cups of cream. I was skeptical about the amount of liquid but the result was one of the fluffiest, most decadent quiche’s I have ever had. If there was one criticism it would be that 1 and a quarter cups of Gruyere was perhaps too much cheese and distracted from the overall enjoyment of the quiche filling.
