CHEESY: Easy Broccoli Quiche

This past weekend we celebrated the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. This holiday commemorates when G-d gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mt. Sinai. For more on Shavuot click HERE.

It is customary to eat all dairy over the holiday. It was a cheese fest for sure!  I made my famous Mac and Cheese, my Mama’s Mascarpone Cheesecake and Easy Broccoli Quiche. Over the course of the weekend we hosted three couples for dinner. It was so nice to celebrate together, and to share these dishes with our close friends.

Recipes for Mac and Cheese and Mama’s Mascarpone Cheesecake coming soon!
