For those of us who love to entertain friends simply, Sunday lunch is the answer. There’s time to get it together, enjoy the moment and get cleaned up before the week begins.
A few Sundays ago, I got into lunch mode and rediscovered the quiche. Why this absolutely delicious savory custard pie of French origin is rarely on the table, I don’t know. The pastry can be right out of the box and baked the day before, ready for filling just before baking. A green salad with fresh herbs goes perfectly.
Start off with the Sunshine Compote and end up with “Sock-It-to-Me” coffeecake, an adaptation of the popular cake of the same name. The best I can say for it is that it’s sweet and addictive. It begs for a steaming cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk.
