I bought the Magnolia Table cookbook right after it came out, but due to all the end-of-the-school-year craziness, I never really sat down and looked through it. Last night I got to bed pretty early and decided to flip through a few pages… and then an hour later finally put it down (with just a FEW recipes marked):
This cookbook is legit. There are a massive number of recipes, they use fairly simple ingredients and techniques, and everything in it sounds amazing. For dinner tonight I ended up making the three-cheese quiche. Not really a dinner recipe but it sounded good with a big salad and fruit (plus, leftovers!). Again- simple ingredients: eggs, cream, spices, cheeses (sharp cheddar, parmesan and gruyere), and chives.
LOTS OF CHEESE.
I opted for ease and picked up a frozen pie crust, so the assembly only took maybe 10 minutes… and that was mainly just grating the cheese. If you did that part ahead of time, it would take about 2 minutes to throw together. It smelled soooo good while in the oven and turned out great! I think I baked it for 48 minutes and then let it set for 10 before cutting.
We had it with that ever-present kale and broccoli slaw salad, strawberries and bacon. It’s definitely rich and not something I would make every day, but really, really good.
So it’s our anniversary!! Lucky 13! Not the most exciting day (VBS, gym, grocery shopping, dinner at home with the kids) but we’re heading to Gruene this weekend for a concert and night away.
Look at those babies…
Catch y’all tomorrow!
