Lightened Up Ham & Spinach Quiche

Lightened Up Ham & Spinach Quiche -  Chew Nibble Nosh

What have we got?  We’ve got HAM!

Every year after Easter, I run into the same predicament…what to do with all of this leftover ham?  This deliciously light and fluffy quiche took care of a bit of it last night. This may be my new go-to quiche base as it baked up so nice and light. My girls, who are admittedly quiche-wary, even gobbled up their slices and openly discussed how much they were enjoying it.  What’s up with that?  It seems the copious amounts of chocolate eggs and jelly beans put them in a good mood.

Pork Scaloppine with Lemon and Capers

One of my favorite restaurant meals is delicious, crispy, pork (or sometimes, chicken) scaloppine with a buttery lemon-caper sauce over pasta.  Packed with butter, cream, and fat, it’s not something I can eat every day.  OK, well, who are we kidding?  I could TOTALLY eat it every day.  I would love to eat it every day.  I just can’t…in good conscience.

I recently grabbed a copy of Cuisine Lite magazine.  The cover boasted that there were loads of “Restaurant quality menus – Lightened up!” waiting for me inside.  Among all of the wonderful looking recipes sat my favorite pork scaloppine dinner, and indeed it was, lightened up.  As you’ve probably guessed by now, I decided to give it a try.
