Quiche (/ˈkiːʃ/ KEESH) is a savoury, open-faced pastry crust with a filling of savoury custard with cheese, meat, seafood, and/or vegetables. Party food.

Sooo...I have found out that sometimes those great ideas become not so great when it
involves putting in extra work....Last school year or maybe two school years ago I thought we should make it a point to thank our teachers monthly, rather than just during Teacher Appreciation Week, as they do take our babies all day 5 days a week for months molding their minds and giving us a little break =)  So I thought the PTO should do Monthly Teacher Breakfasts to show our appreciation.  This idea has taken off and has been a great success and then there's the HOWEVER....I your dedicated SuperMomma decided when it was my turn I would display my culinary skill and make all kinds of home made stuffs rather than picking up a carton of juice and box of bagels....Well it was very well received...there was Quiche, Apple Bread, Fruit, Juice, Muffins....I had completely lost my mind...Well 3 years later I find that teachers look forward to my month and what culinary delights that I will fill their morning with...the PRESSURE...because these days my cup runs over and all I want to do is pick up a carton of juice and a box o' bagles...But of course I couldn't let them down so I pressed my way to the market and $93.00 later I had all the necessities for Home Made Cinnamon Rolls adapted from Pioneer Woman and a few Quick and Easy Quiche along with a few unrelated teacher breakfast items!  I actually enjoy baking so it's just always the hump of getting the ball rolling but once I'm in I'm in and everything came out wonderfully!  The teachers enjoyed and one made sure to blame me for her over eating of Quiche!  I thought I would share the Quiche recipe in case any of you are feeling the need to impress some teachers!

So yeah it's surely been a month of Sunday's and then some since my last blog post...every month I say that I am going to get on the ball with posting recipes, etc. and it never seems to come to fruition.  I am sure it has to do with working a full time job, shuttling my kids to all of their various activities and trying to live up to the Twitter name @IamSuperMomma...LOL! 
However I did make time to celebrate my birthday a few weeks ago with good friends and family with a themed Mexican and Margarita's dinner.  But what's a celebration without cake...Since no one offered to bake me cake (yes I'm calling out all of friends that were there) I decided to make my own  =)  and it was quite tasty! 

What goes better with Mexican and Margarita's than a Dulce De Leche inspired cake!

Dulce De Leche
  • 1 – 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Dulce De Leche
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine condensed milk and brown sugar; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking frequently. Reduce heat, and simmer for 8 minutes, whisking frequently. Remove from heat; whisk in butter and vanilla. Let cool for 5 minutes.  Spoon Dulce De Leche over cake while it is still hot so that it will drip and drizzle!

 As always, Pray, Laugh, Love and Eat Dessert First!
