Eat This: Deep Dish Spinach Artichoke Quiche

spinach artichoke quiche

I used to think quiches were hard and way too many calories for what you got (ie how they tasted).  That’s until I started making my own.  This is one of the most delicious things I’ve made in a while.  We both loved it (the older little isn’t a fan of eggs).

Being a mom of two littles, I don’t readily have time to roll out pie crust – I do have time but I choose to use it doing other things – especially when the pie shells from Pillsbury are so good and easy and inexpensive (Thank you!).  When you are a mom, you have to choose where you spend your time.  I spend mine in being active with the two, cooking simple meals, keeping the house clean, and being creative.  Making pie dough from scratch doesn’t make the top-whatever list.  How do you manage your time as a mom?  What do you learn to say no to?  Has that been hard to change your priorities since kids came along?

    Kim this looks delish – I do have a question. The artichoke hearts – did you steam them? You show a pic of the raw artichokes – so I just wanted to be sure? Thanks- looking forward to making this!
