Salmon Quiche Recipe

Salmon Quiche Recipe

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. -Deanna Baldwin, Bermuda Dunes, California
