Have you ever noticed all of my descriptions are listed in threes? I just noticed that. It’s part of my OCD issues I guess. I’m OCD and ADHD. My friends say I go down “bunny trails” and usually never come back. Until a day or so later. Or when I wake up at 3 am realizing I never finished a story.

I admit, it takes a lot to keep me focused. That’s why the kitchen is my friend. I can multi-task and the smell of smoke usually alerts me I have deviated from my path. Or a sharp pain running the length of my arm when I slice into a finger while watching the pretty birds from my kitchen window.

Take this potato pie with goat cheese for example.  It started out as a quiche with breakfast potatoes as a side. Then somehow morphed into this. I certainly can’t complain. God knows I love quiche and potatoes are my dream food.

I really try very hard to stay focused while I cook. Especially for guests. But sometimes…LOOK!! SQUIRREL!


Potato, Onion and Goat Cheese Pie


  • 3 large potatoes, sliced
  • 1 pie crust, store bought or homemade (excellent crust recipe here)
  • 1 log goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced into rings
  • 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Grease pie plate or tin well. Place crust in plate. Add one layer of potatoes, one layer of spinach, another layer of potatoes, and a layer of red onion. Top with crumbled goat cheese. In a mixing bowl whisk eggs, cream, Nutmeg, salt & pepper. Pour over layered ingredients. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until done. Quiche is done when the top is golden brown, but the center still has a slight wiggle. It will continue to cook as it sits. To keep quiches of any kind light and fluffy, do not over bake.


Life is too short to eat ugly food. Bon Appetit’ Y’all!
