Happy National Carrot Cake Day!!

Yes, kids, it’s a whole day to celebrate the only decent way to prepare carrots. (Eat up, it’s good for you!)

Instead of making carrot cake, however, we’ve been busy in the kitchen experimenting with new quiche recipes. Tonight we sampled four of them–a delicious ham and cheese quiche, an awesome ABC quiche (asparagus, bacon and cheddar–and yes, we kind of made it up), a traditional quiche Lorraine, and a spinach and sausage quiche.

There were four of us in the kitchen tasting–and the ham and cheese won by an onion (seriously, Donna put it well when she said she liked the onion in this one). But that ABC quiche was pretty darn good too…I would expect to see that on the menu this spring.

And now, while the rest of the world is getting ready for bed, I am just starting my next experiment: teeny tiny little cheesecake bites. If I’m lucky, I’ll have them read for prime time just in time for National Cheesecake Day.
