Eat This: Broccoli, Cheddar & Bacon Quiche

Love having women over to live life with me, eat girly food, and be creative. This was the scene at our dining room table the weekend of Thanksgiving.  I had some sweet girlfriends over to celebrate creativity and enjoy getting to know one another. With any girls’ brunch, I think some egg dish is customary, […]
