Zo made up this quiche after asking me what I wanted in it. I told her just thrown in every thing that looks like might go bad soon. I softly laughed at myself as I said, "We will just call it the Kitchen Sink Quiche." So we did! After it was ready to eat and I took my first bite I was very surprised, it tasted like I cooked it. Have you noticed that? You can tell who cooked something if they cook for you frequently? I can tell if my mother, father, sister, Zo or grandparents cooked something or it was one of their recipes. I know what Zo's foods taste like but it tasted like something I made. She asked me why I had a strange look on my face so I said puzzled, "This tastes like I made it." Zo replied, "I used your recipe on Cooking for Zo to make it." Cooking for Zo in our house has become an easy way to remember how we made something and an easy way to make other recipes from. It has to be the easiest home cookbook I have ever made! So enjoy this quiche that Zo made that taste like I made it!
