real men bake quiche.
This entire post is dedicated to my lovely father, whom I photographed above. Recently, he has been inspired to take photographs of his own culinary skills. Being an artist himself, I have no lack in faith that he could probably take more beautiful photos than I. It is no secret in our family that he loves pie and he has been known to insist on baking a pie in the summer heat. However, we have a mutual affinity with quiche. Last time I saw my father in Manhattan, he brought up a memory he had of me saying I had the best quiche ever in Amsterdam. It was true and the secret ingredient was pine nuts. It is embarrassing to admit, but the stunning counter top in this photograph made me homesick. You have to admit, this quiche looks mighty tasty.
I have gone the summer without eggs or dairy, but I know that this lifestyle choice will not last forever. I have complete respect for all those who choose to eat vegan, and I try to as much as possible but will never call myself one. I love food too much to not try new things with family and friends. Nevertheless, you will never hear of me eating any red meat or poultry. My food philosophy is to savor flavor and fuel my body the best I can.
I have been a busy little bee this last week and my posting has been semi shoddy. Two reasons (excuses?) are that 1) I was uninspired after a mandoline accident involving my thumb and 2) my old digital camera has broken.
In the meantime, I will try to share some favorite fashion images, running workouts, and recipes I am trying this week.
