Happy Birthday Julia Child! Eggs in a Cup with Ham and Mushrooms (Les Oeufs en Cocotte avec du Jambon et des Champignons)

I wanted to post this yesterday, but for some reason I had an error message from blogger. Better late than never : Happy Birthday Julia Child! She would have been 101 this year. I always try to remember Julia’s birthday every August 15 because of […]

Asparagus and Ham Crustless Quiche

Asparagus and Ham Crustless Quiche

Asparagus is starting to come into season, and I was able to get several bunches for fairly cheap recently. I am still doing my once-a-week cooking, so I cut the stems into pieces and steamed the bunches in sequence as part of my Sunday cookup. […]
