My mom loves quiche, so for Mother's Day one year I created my own quiche recipe for her. I've been making it ever since. All it takes is a trip to the farmers market. If you have the ingredients, make the crust from scratch. —Yanique Douglas, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
Crabmeat is very plentiful here in Maryland, and this dish is one of my favorite ways to eat it. My sister-in-law Darlene gave me this recipe, and that simple gesture helped make me feel part of the family.
Meet the Cook: This recipe came to me from my mother - it's the kind you request after just one bite! Unlike some quiches, it's also hearty enough that it appeals equally to both woman and men.
Cooking is something that I've always liked. I pore over cookbooks the way other people read novels! In addition, I collect antique kitchen utensils. My husband and I have one son, 12.

This quiche is one of my husband's favorites, probably because it has bacon. Sometimes I add sliced fresh white or baby portobello mushrooms and saute them with the onions for more "meatiness." The makeover version looks wonderful! — Ruby Hochstetler, Holland, Michigan
Crabmeat, zucchini, cheddar cheese and green onions flavor this savory crustless quiche. I take this to potlucks, cut into appetizer-size slices. As a diabetic, I know there will be at least one dish there I can eat guilt-free. —Nancy Romero, Clarkston, Washington
There's nothing I like better than getting all my housework done and "cooking up a storm" in the kitchen.
I was raised in a farming community that had many asparagus growers. So I've always made sure that there's an ample supply of asparagus in my freezer!
My husband is a grain farmer, and we have four grown children and 13 grandchildren.
Chock-full of veggies and melted cheese, this comforting and colorful egg bake has become a holiday brunch classic. For a tasty variation, try substituting asparagus for broccoli and Swiss for cheddar cheese. —Irene Steinmeyer, Denver, Colorado
This colorful quiche is perfect for brunch or lunch. I even like to serve it for our Sunday night supper. Each hearty slice is filled with green beans and mushrooms and topped with tomato and cheddar cheese. It's delicious!

My grandmother used to make "egg cup surprises" for family brunches on special occasions. The added fillings were always a surprise as she never seemed to use the same combination of ingredients twice. As children, we had a guessing game as to what we'd find under the tender crust, which added an aspect of family fun to our meal.—Denalee Standart, Rancho Mureta, California
