Basil, Goat Cheese and Buttermilk Quiche with Chili Crust, Cycle for Survival and the Kitchen Swap!











Hi  everyone! What a week! Tons of cooking and  non-stop action.
I rode in Cycle For Survival for my friends the Colens and everyone affected by rare cancers, myself included, to raise awareness and money for rare cancer research. We donate every year and hope that you will too. Here is their page to donate:

We also held a Kitchen Swap with Keller Williams Realty and it was a whopping success! Here’s the video and make sure to be there next year!
