Savory Tomato & Poblano Pie Recipe {#SundaySupper}

Inspired by a recipe in the August / September issue of Garden & Gun Magazine , with a little more heat added by Poblanos and optional jalapeno peppers, this Tomato Pie is the perfect use of abundant tomatoes in August New Jersey gardens with a nod to my new-found appreciation of southern cooking. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Gratin De Pommes de Terre aux Poireaux {Gratin of Potatoes, Onions and Leeks}

Recipe #2 on my quest to cook through Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, this recipe is a variation on the Gratin de Pommes de Terre aux Anchois, but as I was missing the leeks from last week’s Quiche aux Champignons, I decided they would be the perfect addition to the dish for this week’s SundaySupper event with Chantal. OK, admittedly mostly because I have this fantastic Chantal dish that I love but rarely use and as you may know by now I am always up for an excuse to use a dish or platter.

For this preparation, I opted to make a true Gratin as described by Julia as basically a Quiche minus the pastry shell, baked in a dish and usually more substantial in its ingredients. I plan on serving this as a side item with roasted chicken for the perfect fall dinner.


  • The leek cooking technique created soft leeks full of flavor that really could be added to any dish or used as a topping for fish or chicken.
  • The value of using lids on pots. Seems simple and 101 but the items retain their moisture, or even create more, and cook evenly.


  • Use slightly less butter. Probably cut this on the onion portion.
  • Use slightly more pepper. Possibly use a herb…sage…
  • BIG TIP: There was more liquid in the dish after baking than expected. For the future: Make sure potatoes are fully drained. Even on a towel before adding. Make sure all leek liquid is cooked off before adding to dish.


Gratin De Pommes de Terre aux Poireaux {Gratin of Potatoes, Onions and Leeks}


  • 1 lb. sliced white of leek (about 3 ½ cups)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups chopped potatoes
  • 2/3 cup minced onions
  • 6 tb butter (3 for leeks / 3 for onions)
  • 3-4 cup baking dish such as an 8-inch Pyrex pie plate
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 ½ cups whipping cream
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • ¼ cup grated Swiss cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Boil Leeks over moderately high heat in a heavy bottomed, covered saucepan with the water, salt, and 3 Tb. butter until liquid has almost evaporated. Lower heat and stew gently for 20 to 30 minutes until leeks are very tender.

Cook onions slowly in 3 Tb. butter for 5 minutes, until tender but not browned.

Drop potatoes in boiling salted water and cook for 6-8 minutes or until barely done. Drain thoroughly.

Butter the baking dish. Layer 1/2 potatoes, onions and leeks then repeating with 2nd ½ of all.

Combine eggs, whipping cream, salt and pepper. Whip. Pour over potatoes, onions and leek in dish. Spread cheese over top.

Bake for 30-40 minutes in upper third of oven until top is nicely browned.

Quiche aux Champignons {Mushroom Quiche}

 Oh Julia!

{note – this post has been recently “republished” under Julia’s Mushroom Quiche – read it here. Enjoy them both!}


Two weeks ago my copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Ms Julia Child arrived at my door. I finally had the opportunity to crack it open. This being my first official attempt at making one of her recipes I decided not to go nuts and to purchase the pie crust rather than risk a ruined Quiche due to a failed crust. Next time I promise to go all in.

The recipe is actually incredibly simple and although I risk the lighting bolt coming down and hitting me for saying that I may change anything of the Masters recipes, I would revise a few things for the next version.


* The mushroom cooking technique was fantastic and has been added to my skill set. When reading the recipe I thought I was miss-reading on the mention of “uncover and boil liquid till mushrooms are sautéing in their butter”. Boil? What liquid?? I was only adding a mere 2+ tablespoons of any liquid… Turns out once you uncover you actually do have quite a bit of liquid that needs to be cooked down, even 1/2 cup or so. Brilliant! And delicious.

* Addition of nutmeg – Genius. Adds a special flavor that you can’t necessarily place but creates a warmness.


* Butter: I would skip the final addition of the butter peas on top. Seemed to leave mark & didn’t seem to add anything that wasn’t already there.

* I am an EXTREMELY visual person and by the surface of my Quiche you would not believe how tasty it is. I would be sure to place a few of the mushrooms closer to the surface so they peak through. AND I might even throw a green herb in the final mix to again add color & visual appeal.



Quiche aux Champignons
 {Mushroom Quiche}

Adapted from Julia Child, Mastering the Art of French Cooking

Serves 4-6


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons diced shallots
  • 1 lb large white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons port
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 8-inch partially-cooked pastry shell
  • 1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch of Nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter cut into pea-sized dots


1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Melt butter in pan add shallots for a short time then add in the sliced mushrooms, salt and port. Cover pan and cook over moderately low heat for 8 minutes. Uncover. Raise heat and boil for several minutes until liquid is completely evaporated and mushrooms are beginning to saute in their butter.

3. Beat the eggs, cream and pepper in a large mixing bowl to blend.

4. Gradually stir in the mushroom mixture. Check seasoning. Pour into pastry shell. Spread on the cheese and distribute butter on top. {* I think I would skip the final addition of the butter. It left marks sort of, shall I dare say greasy marks on top}

5. Bake in upper third of pre-heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until puffed and browned.

Bluegrass Tavern: Baltimore, MD

IMG_1050During this weekend’s trip to Baltimore, Maryland we were able to fit in a little bit of my favorite pass time {visiting great restaurants of course!}.

Bluegrass was recommended as a neighborhood favorite doing fabulous work with seasonal ingredients. Although not necessarily local, seasonal is just as important and usually requires a chef willing to adapt to what his local purveyors are able to supply and frequently requires last-minute menu changes.

After a mis-guided young gentleman sitting on a front staircase, sent us on a wild goose chase in the wrong direction on Hanover Street, we finally back tracked to arrive at the corner tavern with outside seating as well as two floors inside. It was a little cool out so we opted for inside and were seated in a nice corner table. The rooms are cozy and the building appears to have originally been one of the brick row homes.

The interior decor was wood cabin-ish with cabinets flanking a large fireplace housing glassware with chicken wire door inserts {get ready for a furniture before/after posting coming up}.

Our server was pleasant and well versed in the menu selections and beverage pairings. The food overall was very good. Beverages were priced well and offered a large selection of both wine and craft beers. I would recommend going if you have the chance but be aware of your wallet. With our 3 courses and two drinks each the bill would be in the “VERY Nice Dinner Out” category. $$$ out of 4 / Overall B+


1500 S. Hanover Street, Baltimore, MD 21230

Tangerine Thyme Cocktail Recipe

If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again. At least that was the theme for this Spring Herb inspired cocktail. Luckily we were heading to a friends’ home for the Cinco/Derby weekend and I would have a few people to play with me. Taste testing versions #1 & #2 till we agreed #3 was the ideal version of a beverage I had never before made but had agreed to use as my contribution to the newly formed Sunday Supper Movement. A group of bloggers committed to bringing the family and friends back to the table for the Sunday meal.

I had something close to a recipe in my head but needed to adjust as the local shop in Baltimore, Graul’s, did not offer the mixer I was hoping to use {I feel a version 4 & 5 coming on}. However the basics stayed the same.



* Thyme & Tangerine Infused Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar into 1 cup water over heat till sugar dsolves. {Make sure to watch as the sugar is likely to burn if you turn your head to say check the crushed ice maker is filled….}

Place 4-5 sprigs of fresh cut Thyme and about 1/4 tangerine peel to mixture. Continue to heat on low. Set aside to chill. {I found that if you leave this over night the Thyme flavor will really develop and adds much more to the flavor but play around with your preference level.}

Tangerine Thyme Refresher


{makes one cocktail}

  • 1-1 1/2 ounces of Gin
  • 3 Parts Tangerine Soda
  • 1 Part Thyme infused Simple Syrup
  • Sprig of Thyme & small amount of Thyme leaves for garnish
  • Tangerine Peel

After testing three versions –

* San Pelgrino Tangerine was the prefered decided to have the best fizz, and Tangerine flavor with out adding to much sweetness.

* Gin was preferred over Vodka even with the “Vodka Drinkers” and gave it the herbal quality I was looking for. But give it a try yourself if you are skeptical.

* Some asked for more fizz which could be added with Tonic or Club based on your taste

* edible flowers are optional but my taste testers comments made them worth it. “I don’t know how it tastes but it is beautiful” ; “I wouldn’t change a thing”

Try your own versions with your own taste testers and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Asparagus Soup… Cold Spring Trend

We all know there is more than one way to do pretty much everything but when I came across “Asparagus Soup with Poached Egg” twice in two days and thought it was worth testing and sharing.

The first one is from Williams-Sonoma and I found it when I was at my local shop drooling over pretty much everything in the shop. They had recipe cards on the counter and this one caught my attention as someone in my house is a poached egg freak. So I am always looking for new recipes to make.

The second came to me today via email from the Food e-newsletter along with other tasty cold soups. Perfect timing for the warm weather the entire country is having.

Being in the height of the Asparagus season, it should be fairly easy to acquire  most of the ingredients called for in the recipes. Even easier if you are growing your own…. I will be testing them both at our home over the weekend and posting the results but would love to hear your feedback as well and which one you prefered, why, etc.. {with pictures of course!!}

Happy Spring!! ~ kf.

TECHmunch Tampa Food & Lifestyle Conference April 21st

My FIrst Blogger Conference!! Although pretty exhausted from the previous tax week, I am feeling excited about tomorrow’s TECHmuch lifestyle blogger conference in Tampa.

TECHmunch helps food bloggers in cities across the U.S. learn the skills they need to succeed and take their blogs to the next level. The intensive, hands-on format is designed to get attendees up-to-speed on all the latest tools and tactics for building buzz, improving SEO, growing their audience and profiting from their hard work.

While other food blogger conferences tend to focus on promoting food-related brands to attendees, TECHmunch has a grassroots style and fast-paced format that’s focused entirely on providing useful information… and having fun in the process.

TECHmunch was founded in 2010 by Founder Babette Pepaj. As the entrepreneur behind the Web’s first food-themed social network and recipe swap, Babette had attended more than her share of online industry conferences that simply failed to deliver practical, real-world information. TECHmunch was born out of her desire to create something inherently more valuable to both established and aspiring food bloggers.

The first TECHmunch was held in March 2010 in Austin, Texas — concurrent with the annual SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) Conference. The second TECHmunch was held the following June in New York City, and was an official partner at Internet Week 2010.

Babette Pepaj, TECHmunch Founder (on right) at NYC Event

“Our goal is to give local food bloggers a fun, affordable conference where they get the ingredients they need to succeed. We focus on practical information that attendees can use immediately to take their blogs to the next level.” – Babette Pepaj, TECHmunch Founder

TECHmunch Tampa is produced with local assistance by Jeff Houck (@JeffHouck), Food Editor Tampa Tribune.
