Easy Step by Step video on baking Quiche Lorraine

You must be wondering what have happened to me since my last post. I have not disappeared from the surface of cooking (heaven forbids !) but have been continuously cooking and baking as always. Just that I have not kept up with my Blog posting as I was busy with my work and family.

To make up for my lame excuses (as my son would have put it) , I am endeavoring to create more exciting food and fun with step by step easy video cooking and baking. So you may catch me at my Best or at my Worst and enjoying every minute of it.

Here’s my very first home-made video on YouTube , presenting to you a home cooked delicious Quiche Lorraine after being tempted so many times from Delifrance. LOL, I do so hope that I am one lucky soul who unknowingly stumbled upon the secret recipe !

A warning to those who watch this video would no doubt be tempted to quickly whipped up a Quiche knowing how easy it can be done, not 1 but perhaps 3 to 4 Quiches at one go !!! I actually did 5 Quiches within a span of 2 days , after my sons’ commented how mouth-watering it was . They were begging me for more after watching my Quiche Lorraine video (my little fans !).

If you love to have more of my videos, I would love to hear from you too .

And if you did not manage to get all details of the recipe, do not fret.
